No, though I do think they're pretty funny, if you know the joke.  One of the many crappy things about law school is that it interferes with watching as much football and basketball as I would like.   To tell you the truth, I didn't even know GSU was talking about starting a team.  Maybe they'll be able to compete with Southern in the future, I just think it will take closer to 10-15 years than 5.

Either way, neither of the GSU teams is ever going to hold a candle to the 'Dawgs.  Woof!

Tony Barnhardt, as usual, was talking out of his ass.  As I said, good luck with that.  I wouldn't bet the rent check on it if I were you, though.

I count 17 Atlanta-area players (and that's being as generous as possible, and counting guys from Dalton and Lawrenceville which are pretty far away) on their current roster, which is about one-fifth - nowhere near two-thirds.

Suffice it to say, starting a football team from scratch is a lot more difficult than you seem to think.  I would be very, very surprised if they're anywhere near as good as Georgia Southern usually is in just five years.  But hey, good luck to them - I don't have a dog in this fight, I have no real connection with either school.

I assume you were actually trying to say "it will get killed by the other GSU."  Georgia Southern has a handful of I-AA national championships.  Georgia State doesn't even have a team yet.

I agree.  I've heard of Temple.  I'm not entirely sure who or what NYLS is.

I've had a really great experience with UGA. Weird. (and I had the avatar before I loved UGA)

Maybe it's better now, but back when I was applying (two cycles ago), they were horrendous.  Though I think I saw someone on LSN who had a similar bad experience with them (left in limbo for months and months and months, evasive answers that turned out to be completely fictional, and a generally too-big-for-their-britches attitude) this year too.  Eventually I got tired of their BS and decided to go to Emory instead, who was much nicer to me and will suit me better for what I eventually decided I want to do, so all's well that ends well.

I guess your mileage may vary.

Agree with what has been said above, except Tampa >>>> Tally.  The TB area is a wonderful place to live.

There are 2 types of undergrads that you'll likely see.

Type 1 - The one that is locked and loaded and ready to kick your butt.  Wanted to be a lawyer his or her whole life.

Type 2 - The other is the burnt out undergrad who should have taken some time off.

The higher the ranked school, the more of Type 1. 

The Type 1s will study 24/7 while you, being out of school, may have obligations like a kids and spouse to deal with, so you can't study 24/7.  You don't want to compete with Type 1s, you want more Type 2s in your class.

This is right on the money.  My wife and all three kids had the flu last week, so guess who got to take care of them, while all his classmates were in the library cramming for exams.

OTOH, I'm not eating fast food and pizza every night, so it balances out.

UGA, hands down.

Temple ITCR.

And unless you're really afraid of numbers, think about doing tax.  That and trial advocacy is what Temple does really well.
