Choosing the Right Law School / Re: BC that much > than BU?
« on: March 25, 2006, 08:59:15 PM »
Total BC lawyers in V100 firms:  546
Total BU lawyers in V100 firms:  689

But the second part of my earlier post ...

Total BC lawyers in V100 firms in NYC:  87
Total BU laywers in V100 firms in NYC:  228

where do these numbers come from? are they available for other schools?

edit: i just saw you got them from nalp. which nalp site exactly? there's a few. the one 'useful' one i found allowed for searching employers, but i didn't see a way to search a school for their placements.

UIUC has the 17th best placement in biglaw firms but is ranked 26:

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Fordham Defferal -> Ding
« on: March 25, 2006, 07:11:46 AM »
So, anyone else get a letter from Fordham saying they were deferred? Included in it was a form that needed to be completed if one wanted to be kept in consideration. I no longer had any interest in travelling way the hell out east, so I didn't complete the form. Two months later? I get a ding. Wtf? As far as I was concerned my application had been withdrawn. Is this their way of increasing their selectivity?

29 and change on the third try

started in the bars. bummed cigarettes off friends. this turned into bumming cigarettes off friends after meals. this turned into my friends saying, "Dude you're smoking all my cigarettes. Buy your own pack." The rest is history.

i made a 'no smoking in the apartment' rule for myself at the beginning of winter. cut be down to 5~6 a day.

then i broke the rule once. now there's a small cloud forming in the west end of the apartment. yup... looks like rain.

i've got a 4.5 year / atleast a pack a day habit. tried quitting a few times but it didnt catch. i plan to quit before law school (and not just 'during' it, but for good). i can't imagine having to worry about it when stuck in the library or classroom.
