I have no idea what he means or how it could realistically be implemented.

Law School Applications / Re: Where should I apply? 178/3.11 AA male

You've got a shot anywhere. If I were you, I'd definitely apply HYS. I'd also apply Chicago, and then I'd apply heavy in whatever region I wanted to live in; if it were the South, I'd apply to Virginia, Duke, Vanderbilt, and a couple of the big publics. If it were the west, I'd apply to Texas, USC, UCLA, Cal, and maybe a few of the publics (Colorado, Arizona/ASU).

If you really and truly do not care where you live, I'd just pepper the top 14 + Vandy, USC, UCLA, and Texas and see what falls.

Law School Applications / Re: Schools to Consider: 2.73 GPA, 172 LSAT

apply very, very broadly. like from WUSTL/Illinois range to the 70s. Anywhere you think you could live, apply to.

go where you want to live

and again, beware ASU's employment figures, which are a big joke

6
do NOT rely on that median income figure for ANY school and ESPECIALLY for arizona state, which has seemed to game the rankings for a second year in a row

General Board / Re: In-House Counsel undergraduate major?

don't know why you'd waste 3 years of your life getting a JD if you wanted a regular business job

and I don't know if an MBA would help, and it looks like it would take at least 1 year extra out of your life.

person's GPA won't be a 3.0. community college grades count just as much, so it will be 3.89*howevermanycreditsweretakenatcommunitycollege + 3.0*creditsatuniversity divided by totalcredits, which will definitely be >3.0.

kids on the law review at my T1 are having a hell of a time trying to get jobs. I seriously doubt Cooley grads are doing anything, top 3% or not.
