Undergrad grades DO count. Any career services representative or recruiter would tell you this. Out of the big three quantitative measures, law school GPA counts the most, then the LSAT, then undergrad GPA. Law school GPA counts for way more than undergrad GPA. I'm not sure how far you would get with SAT/ACT, GRE, or another standardized test.

This thread is about whether undergrad name matters, not whether undergrad grades matter.  But I'm sure you're right that some firms do care about undergraduate grades.

You're the transferor, not the transferee.

Oh, that's right: I'm glitterati.  I always get those confused.

does not knowing who neil gaimoan is make me a philistine?

No.  It's partially a sub-generational thing and partially whatever that is that differentiates people who can handle scifi from people who can't.  Nonetheless, he's very good.

Last day. SO FIDGETY. Wanna get on the road NOW!

Man, I bet you'd be a fun road trip companion!

Only if you like Neil Gaiman audiobooks!

I would for you, I'm sure!  I love audiobooks!

Hypothesis:  law school amounts to an incredibly regressive transfer of wealth to the literati.

No.

Yeah I was just wondering if law review students tended to gravitate towards any other specific classes other than Federal Courts.

It depends on your school, of course, but --

Admin
Conflict of Laws
Jurisprudence
Legislation

The corporate types among them will also often take UCC classes, Securities Regulation, and tax classes.

1. Congrats, Mu!  Yay!

2. Good luck, Matthies!

3. I loved, nay, LOVED, simply ate up, the Tales Of The City books when I was in my late adolescence (though for some reason I am scared to read Michael Tolliver Lives).  I highly recommend them in addition to, perhaps alongside, the miniseries.  (Olympia Dukakis is pretty amazing, though, isn't she?) 

EDIT for clarity

Wow, P, that is a pretty sweet avatar. Nice find!

All credit should go to Tom Terrific, who found it for me.

I need to try to get some zzs.  I'll try to dream good things for my Mets, for your sake and mine, but it will be hard. Maybe I will grow out my eyebrows until the Mets hit .500.  (jk.  I would never.)

Just a note to report my delight at my past (and long-forgotten) brilliance:  I ordered the fancy warranty where the techie comes to my house to fix my computer.  Amazing.
