Above poster is right. Remember a con law issue has a couple parts. The first part is determining what area of con law. If the statute seems to treat different groups of people differently you have an equal protection clause issue. The next issue is what standard of review to apply. If the class is problematic which is usually determined by three factors (1)History of discrimination (2)Whether the status is immutable and I forgot the third standard factor courts look at (I am a 3L I took con law two years ago). If its a problematic class then you apply strict scrutiny if its not problematic you apply rational basis review. Remember just because you apply rational basis doesn't mean you always will pass, the prime example is Cleburne where the state failed rational basis review. On the flip side occasionally the government will pass strict scrutiny despite having awful facts like in Koramatsu.
Everybody on this board knows that you have a big law job lined up. . . . [N]obody cares and nobody thinks more highly of you because you do.
