Mr Smittie, UNLV is one of my back-up schools in case my old grades from my first time in college keep me out of a top 14.  I visited them last year and I was impressed in many ways.  Their career placement concerns me some, but they seem to be developing into a top notch institution and I think they are underrated, as evidenced in their consistent rise in rankings year after year.  I would love to hear more from you as a student once you get there.

Sure, I'll try to stay in touch. Actually, I am hoping that whenever some other non-trads happen to visit Vegas, we might be able to hang out. I think it would be pretty cool.  I am not too worried about career placement, at least at this point. I figure I have four years to engage in some serious networking, and I really think that is a far better way to explore potential employment opportunities.

Chose mine based on the proximity/abundance of hookers, free drinks, and gambling. ::)

Not sure if it has been included yet (too lazy to read entire thread), but I really hate when people use the word "irregardless".

"Momma Bear is gonna kill me, cause I used the last roll of toilet paper" :-[

Most of the people I know are hoping I go in to Criminal Defense, particularly since I will be living in Vegas and they frequently visit that area. ;)

I'm not a musician, but I have managed several indy bands and recording artists. I may consider doing Entertainment Law, but truly undecided as of yet.

Picking up chicks at funerals rocks!!!

[For every time something on the off-topic board has made me want to stick something in my eye, someone from "our" board has posted something really insightful and inspiring.  I've gotten to share this crazy ride with some incredible people, and I'm kind of bummed that we won't all be going to school together at the end of the rainbow.

Agreed. But maybe we can periodically stay in touch with one another and continue lending moral support throughout the next 3-4 years. We can call it networking. I think it would be cool to have attorney friends located all over the country.

As for me, I'll likely be in Vegas for a long time after LS, and if any of you other respectable members (particularly the non-trads that Jolie speaks of) finds himself/herself (or a friend, relative, etc) in need of a colleague to help "what happens in Vegas, stay in Vegas", you are welcome to look me up. 8)

rev reminds me of one (or more) of my Brother-in-Laws.
