Where should I go next fall? / Re: Columbia, Penn, NYU, Chicago, oh my!

cut your penn acceptance up into hundreds of tiny pieces and set it on fire.

barring some overriding attachment to philly this decisions should solely be between NYU and Columbia.

Cady is correct that this is stupid advice.  Granted, I'm not in law school but I can't imagine your life being infinitely worse if you choose to go to the fourth-best Ivy League law school instead of the third-best.

I don't say this based on personal beliefs.  I worked in a V10 firm before going to law school.  NYU/CLS/Harvard/Yale dominated the summer associate classes.  I think there were two Penn attorneys in the entire firm, one of whom graduated first in his class.  Law firms are very rigid in adhering to their prestige hierarchy and NYU and CLS are a definitive notch above Penn.  I'm not saying that Penn is a bad school, in fact I'd be there now if I could.  But with acceptances to CLS and NYU I wouldn't even consider Penn due to the reputation difference is has with employers.

There are a number of reasons for this that may not be related to the quality of the school/hiring practices.

Also, not everyone aspires to work at a V10 firm.

Also, I'll address this further when I'm not under a deadline.

I've said it before (rather emphatically)--there may be some element of what people call YP going on. But in all of my interactions with the admissions office, I've been pretty well convinced that much of what people deem YP is attributed to Penn wanting a particular kind of class, and people being bitter about it.

Of course, troublemaker was totally YP'd and it was wrong.

i think that there's a sort of YP going on, but not what people generally refer to as YP.  i think people think of YP as "your numbers are too high", and i don't think that's it.  i think it's YP in terms of "if you don't want us, we don't want you."  like if you make it obvious that you don't really care about them and are putting them down as a safety while shooting for yale, then they're not going to accept you.  and that's kind of a YP, but not what people generally think of as a YP.  i mean no one likes getting rejected.  it's the same with law firm recruiting.  if you make it clear that you don't care about them, that's a turnoff and they're less likely to accept you.

also,

::buys cady small dog, punts cady's small dog::

yeah, that's pretty much what i meant.

Isn't someone supposed to be writing her (are you actually a her? I have no idea) comment?

Sex is irrelevant. Gender is a construct.

Don't remind me.
