One of my favorite Obama moments, was when he gave a speach to a townhall meeting about convserving natural resources and about the need to ditch big sports utility vehicles.  He was praised and cheered as he left in his SUV.

Current Law Students / Re: New Law School Ranking Out
« on: November 03, 2006, 02:38:26 PM »
Ummmm, not sure if this is a joke or not.  Those aren't the new rankings.  Those are the ones that Cooley has on their website.  Cooley isn't ranked in the top 20 or even the top 150.  The real rankings are from US News.  ;)

I currently work @ Jones Day, which is the definition of big corporate law.  We handle M & A, Toxic Tort, Securities, you name it.  The firm is very big, and we hire tons of attorneys each year.  This year, all of our associates were hired from; Georgetown, UCLA, USC, NYU, Chicago.  Get the picture?

A list of schools ranked 87th by U.S. News:

 87. Louisiana State University–Baton Rouge 
 87. Mercer University (GA)
 87. Northeastern University (MA)
 87. Pennsylvania State University (Dickinson)           
 87. Pepperdine University (McConnell) (CA)

Even though Hofstra is in the 3rd tier, it is a solid school.

You forgot to mention how humble and modest you are  ::)

I am sure there will be opportunities.  But if you were smart enough to get a full ride, do you really need to ask this?

Online Law Schools / Re: Concord Law School

In all honest truth, here is what every single employer has told me about online law degrees/phd's/masters programs.  If you already have a successful career and want to go into consulting, then the online degree may work for you.  Not many places will take an online degree seriously.  I am not saying this out of agreement with that philosophy, just repeating what I have heard over and over again.  I have worked in arbitration, mediation, and dispute resolution.  Some of the arbitrators and mediators had studied and received degrees through DL.  I have yet to meet anyone in private practice or working for the gov't, state, local law who went through DL.

I have to agree; 25 resumes isn't that many.  I think my buddy sent out about 100 before he found the right match.

Do you have any desire to go back to working with the SEC?  What about doing some sort of market regulation or in house compliance work?  They pay fairly well (6 figures generally to start).  With you CPA & law degree I would think some brokerage houses would jump at you.

Well that is certainly a hell of a challenge.  Being self motivated is a great asset that will serve you well.  Any idea what kind of law you are interested in?
