wow, grumpy grumpy, are you pissed GW took a drop in the ranings as well? i find it hilarious you believe you can glean so much about me from a couple little missives made to bait irritable little pricks like you and whiteyemsr. i find great humor in the fact that you feel it necessary to tell everyone that you got into ND and GW (both accept roughly one in four applicants, not overly impressive is it?). remain...in terms of peer assessment (out of 5.0) GW-3.4, ND-3.3, and UW-3.5, as for assessment score by lawyers and judges (out of 5.0) GW 3.8, ND-3.8, and UW-3.7...pretty evenly matched wouldn't you say? it would follow then that if the assumption is ND grads are solid. mind you whiteyesmr I said UW was not a national school, you merely parroted...my contention has never been that ND isn't a good school but rather that it is an overrated program (it seems the people at USNWR agree with me) and its national standing will continue to suffer as a result. the $1200 a month is huge; i argued that if you wanted to live in wisco and could go there for free (a T1 school ranked one slot-due to ties-behind ND) why would you want the debt regardless of what galley you end up apple-polishing for? i would argue that the reputation of other graduate programs has everything to do with a school's national reputation, and if you look at where UW places across the board, it is one of the top schools in the country. therefore, my dears, when you say, i went to UW, especially in professional circles . . . john 259, way to blast 260 people you don't know (the size of this year's incoming class), you are certainly much smarter than the entire bunch. and whiteyesmr, chicago is a cool town...i know people who loved it and hated it. you will want to visit Wisco when you are there however since there is very little to do out-of-doors in Illinois. While you are slaving away to benefit some partner who secretely hates you, I would avoid the Wisconsin bashing however, UW places quite well in Chicago. john 259, as a husband and father of two kids with a good circle of friends i certainly don't care what others think of me. while i don't go out of my way to alienate people in REAL life (again dude, this is pretend world here) i certainly wouldn't mind if guys like you who need to constantly remind themselves that they are important and special, stayed away.
Vaginatorix, it is obvious that the only "professional circles" you are a part of are the ones at the Renaissance fair and maybe whatever theme restaurant you work at. A "beastie?" Who talks like that except for people at the aforementioned locations and avid Dungeons & Dragons kids.
The fact that you mentioned "husband and father of two kids" tells us that you do care what people think about you, because you just lied about being married and finding someone unfortunate enough to have your kids.
Also, I do not believe I bashed anybody other than you in your entering class. I even referred to your classmates as smart, which will be evidenced in the fact that you will feel alienated by them because youre obviously a social outcast who is obviously not very bright and gets a kick out of people actually responding to your ignorant blathering about how bad you have been hurt by your rejection letter from ND, which is why I mentioned that I had been accepted (it is okay that you were not part of that 1 out of 4). ND is a lot tougher to get into than UW; you failed to mention the LSAT scores and that 25% of admitted students at UW got below a 156. Personally, I like everybody I know who went to UW but I still have not met one who didnt grow up in Wisconsin. I just feel bad for the other folks in your entering class who will have to hear you whine on and on about your problems with Madisons Renaissance fair, not getting into ND, and your imaginary wife and kids. Good luck with all that.
