I decided to be civil as I think Remarq is actually a nice person and I probably shouldn't have given him crap so quick.  Maybe this will be the new kinder/gentler Dudeman  ;).

With regards to why Biglaw?  Well, for me it makes sense for 2-3 years.  I'm fortunate to be graduating with hardly any debt, which means that I can continue living the way I do now, bank most of my pay, then use it for a down payment on a nice home for my family.  At that point I'll come back to my federal position making GS-14 (possibly 15 by the time I graduate) and live comfortably.

For me, the money is just a means to an end.  That end being a nice home.  For others, it is useful to pay off loans. 

Plus, law firms really do spend a lot training new associates.  Miserable as the experience may be, it's still good experience.

Are you working biglaw in DC or somewhere else?

I'll take that bet any day.  Emory's numbers are around the same as GW's. If GW dropped, so too would Emory.

Most importantly, IU would not ever be 23 in any realm of the world.

thedudeman where you at?

Maybe he had a stroke when the rankings got published? He seems a little high strung when it comes to rankings seeing as how that usually what he bases his bashing of other posters on.


I wonder where he is too, esp. after all the snarky pm's he sent me about "what a moron I am" if I think iu-b could ever pass GW...

I still think you are a moron.  I don't see many IU students working Biglaw at V100 firms.... Last I check, 43% of GW grads end up in Biglaw (including me).

I'm not fretting the rankings and to have GW drop 8 spots even though our stats went up this year just shows how silly they really are.

Enjoy your TTT next fall big guy.

The picture of maturity. Being prodded, really? You pm'd me, you started insulting people. I just said the leaked rankings were true.

Only your Ugrad gpa counts for your GPA. Grad school is considered a soft factor like work experience.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: 0L looking for some advice

Honestly, if your numbers are right it wont matter. If you're capable of scoring well on the LSAT then you will, regardless of what undergrad you go to.

Take the money. Pace is fine, just know that NYC is sooo oversaturated with lawyers and grads from higher ranked schools.

No, the reason the T14 is the T14 is beacuse they are the only schools who have ever been in the top 10 in USNWR rankings. So, until 15-18 make it in to the top 10 the answer is no.

General Board / Re: Are you happy with your choice?

Well as I said on another thread I have taken at least three credits in law school every semester including summers since 2004. Tonight I walked out of my last ever law school class. I have no regrets at all, I love my school, my city, my classmates and my friends I have made in that time. If I could do it all again, and this may sound crazy to you all, even if I had a chance in hell at Yale, knowing what I know now I would do it all over again right here. I made the right choice for me. Iím just having trouble comprehending that its all over as of tonight. That part I guess I was not ready to think about until the last time I walked out those doors and drove home.   Fells kind of Öempty.

I'm sure its not the same, but I had that feeling as I left my last ugrad class today. It's strange to think that its all over.

Pay the seat deposit at UGA and stay on the waitlist at UNC.

Maybe he is busy filling out his transfer app to Bloomington?


No, I doubt it, he made it painfully clear that he already has a fancy BIGLAW! job and that GW is the best law school in the university.
