Law School Admissions / Re: How-to become a Successful Attorney...

This may be a bit random:  I just realized that you guys are completely right.  I shouldn't stress about this now... just do well in UG and have fun.  I just had an epiphany.

I'll see you in a few years.  Don't miss me, too much.   :-*

Haha... i'll drop by every now and then.   ;)

Ride the Snake

Have sex you mean?

Nah, it was a reference to an SNL skit with Jim Carrey.  I don't know why it popped into my head.

But it's the kind of randomness that you can pass off as wit if you find an exceptionally gullible woman  ;)

General Off-Topic Board / Wit; Developing it...

How does one learn to think on their feet?  To think FAST.... and to develop witty remarks when on a date, for example.

Or to think quickly on your feet in case a case does not go your way?

And charm and charisma... how?  We all have the potential, but how do we unleash these characteristics?

I heard Yale is bad for biglaw because of their academic focus. So if you want to get into that I'd go to Cooley.

Why is Yale bad for BigLaw?  Where did you hear this from?

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Top three most cutthroat schools?

From what I've heard (though I don't really believe it):

Cornell = bottom ivy = inferiority complex = competition
GULC = huge class + nation's capitol = bieng anonymous + desparate desire for clerkships, etc. = competition
Harvard = huge class = anonymous = competition

Actually, at Cornell it's not that competitive because it's so damn small and everyone knows each other. But it seems like people work a lot harder there. And even if you graduate at the bottom of your class at Harvard you can still get an amazing job so I doubt they'd be that competitive either, though as a deferee I really don't know.

Columbia Law is definitely competitive, as well as Georgetown Law; Columbia's competitiveness isn't cutthroat per se... but it is intensely competitive.

Law School's in general are competitive, besides Yale Law... they have a pass/fail system so the desire to be Number One is virtually nonexistent.

oh right UG admissions are non-rolling and much slower. In that sense, some of us LS applicants should really stop complaining about "slow" LS decisions.

I will let you all know where I decide to go once I hear from every school.  :)  I'm glad they didn't send me the letters yet, I'm scared shitless.  The wait is killing me, but the possibility of getting rejected is even worse...
