Here's a link if the opportunity to view it comes up:

Dodo Eats Too Much would be a good name for me.

True story... I covered high school sports in South Dakota for a year, and there are lots of reservation schools in the state. There was a girl named "Doesn't Miss A Shot". I thought it was a joke when I first saw it. Can't remember her first name, but I found it pretty humorous.

Jesus- no. God... I'm open to the possibilty that there is some sort of god or entity, but I don't think anyone will know for sure until we're dead.

As a guy, I would be hesitant to want to marry a woman who worked in biglaw for the same reason I don't want to work in biglaw: if I'm in love with someone and married to her, I hope to at least see them often enough to remember what she looks like, and vice versa. The big salary is nice, but, at least to me personally, it's not the worth the trade off.

But I am very, very much attracted to the intelligent, motivated, successful woman. I wouldn't care at all if my gf/wife made more money than me. If I become a prosecutor, I'm sure she will (if I ever meet her).

As someone who was born and raised in the Midwest and lived all but 17 months of my life there, I must say, at least from a weather perspective, damn good decision! My four days out there over New Year's solidified that (although it did hit 71 here today... it was 38 with gusty cold winds when my flight landed on Saturday after the admitted students thing).

I applied when the OP did, and heard back about three weeks ago. There seems to be a lot of people that haven't heard back from them. They have two admitted students programs, one last week and the other in two weeks. I went to the one last week, and there were only about 15 students there, and only about half of them were dead-set on going, while most others were still considering other options. The small number was actually cool because we could really monopolize the time of the professors and finaid/admissions people, but I was pretty surprised. They have a class of about 180, so I'm not sure if they're that behind or what the deal is.

A case of bad timing: just before I left town last week for an admitted students program, I got deferred by my co-top choice/big-reach school, which also happens to be my UG alma mater.

I check the mail, and open the envelope to see I'm deferred while I'm walking down the hallway to my apartment. As I open the door a little bummed out, my phone rings, and I see it's a Madison phone number so I'm thinking, "Hey, maybe it's them wanting more info or something." I answer... no, it's the UW Foundation trying to solicit a donation from me as an alum. Not a good time to be calling me asking for money. I politely listen to the guy since I still do love my school, but let him know that it's probably not the best timing so there will be no donation.

Placed on the infamous "hold" list at UW today. Seems to be a lot of people in this boat.

Wisconsin, Indiana and UNLV. Vegas is understandable as I applied later, but I'm really getting sick of waiting on the others.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Delay LS for a job???

A good friend of mine is leaning toward the same option, although he is already at the job and getting a significant pay raise to do so for another year. But his main motivating factor is that it'll give him the summer to study for and retake the LSAT, since he didn't do great the first time around. I have no idea what your LSAT was, but perhaps that is something you could look into if you chose to go with the job.
