ronaldo always goes in and out with his form but he was getting back to his best before he was injured.  i know about gilardino but i dont think italy are going to score many goals at the world cup.
finally- how about just answering my points instead of insinuating i dont know anything about soccer?

schools 4-14 are basically the same prestige-wise, HYS is worth considering over a darrow but not anywhere else, this is the biggest of no brainers as far as i'm concerned.

terrible advice in my opinion, to save 170k make umich fit for 3 years, you can easily get nyc biglaw from umich too.

are you kidding?  13 goals in italy is a lot, ronaldo has 14 goals this year in 23 games and had scored in 4 straight before he got injured.  why is it everyone in the world thinks these players are great except you?  adriano and ronaldo wouldn't have any problem getting in the arsenal side, let me tell you, and if they were arsenal wouldn't be sweating it out for a champions league spot.
it's not all about ronaldinho, i think brazil could win the world cup without ronaldinho, that's how good they are.
as far as italy-where are the goals going to come fron without totti?

Washington and Lee was all about drinking.... whatever they were doing.

The admitted students weekend at W+L there was just a big party.  I heard this exchange between a somewhat sloshed admitted student and a totally sloshed current student:
(looking at the agenda)  "the curriculum?  why do i give a s*it about the curriculum?  i mean, i'm probably going here anyway"
"yeah f*ck the curriculum, the more narrow you study the less chance of you getting a job"

I heard a few other funny things like that, at least it made choosing ND even easier.

yes dude lucio is better than any defender they've had for years and dida is a better keeper.  have you watched ronaldo the last few weeks?  he's back.  and you don't make mention of adriano, kaka and ronaldinho.  as an england supporter, i'm worried and not just because sven is still in charge.  this is england's best chance to win the world cup in ages but brazil are scary.
it's not just me saying that it's everyone who follows the sport. 

as for the US, their group is tough, with the czechs and italians in there, they'll have to face two of the top 8 teams in the tournament.  stranger things have happened though, look at senegal last time round.

so if you don't go to law school you're going to take out 141k in loans and put it in a savings account?

expected returns on a saving account is an conservative estimate (a very conservative estimate in fact) of what people can expect to make if they invest the money.  The return from this investment is then divided over the years to show how much the JD degree must earn annually to match this return.  Why is this so difficult to you?
Did I say I will take out a loan and put it in a saving account? or passing this strategy as a viable investment method?

i understand what you're saying but i dont think it's a great way to look at the investment, that's all.  i think it makes most sense to consider the cost plus lost income.  it's not a big deal though, i think anyway you look at it, for anyone who has a decent length career in practice, law school makes economic sense.
