Just yesterday, I was very happy with my life. Great job, great family, great friends, house ... But then something happened last night which completely changed my world. I was at a bar in West Hollywood where I got into a verbal argument with a blonde lady (she started it, I'm serious -- instead of saying 'excuse me', she just pushed me out of her way!). Now you know, two people at a bar, you know, tipsy, so an argument or two, not a big deal.
Doesn't sound like much to me. Two people in a random encounter saying the most hurtful things they could think of to each other. Happens everyday. Perhaps the real problem is with your self confidence.
The world is full of hate, all you can do is be above it. The fact that you got "sweet revenge" means that you are on a similar level as her, even if not quite as low. In her mind, you are just another minority harrassing her in a dark parking lot. And in your mind, she is just another person discounting you despite all your accomplishments.
I submitted my resume through OCI for a bunch of jobs that I didn't necessarily want. Well, I wasn't really convinced I would get the interviews because I am not a "certified legal intern" (in florida it means the supreme court licenses you to practice as a lawyer temporarily before you graduate), and I haven't worked at a SA or PD office.
Well, I have interviews this week and next week including Public Defender's offices and State's Attorneys offices. When they ask me "why are you interested in this position," I want to be able to respond, so what are the perks of working those jobs?
Here is all I can come up with:
1. You get a ton of litigation experience, whereas first and second year associates in civil firms are typically stuck shuffling papers
2. The work is probably pretty interesting. Prosecuting a DUI or something like that is more interesting than checking property for easements, or analyzing the proviso language of a contract for the sale of toaster ovens, IMO.
anything else? anything at all would be helpful.

USC is the only law school in South Carolina. Even though SC doesn't have a big legal market compared to Georgia, NC, or Florida, people who go to USC tend to get jobs because they are the only law students in SC.
NC has a lot of really good law schools. Fourth tier can't compete with Duke, UNC, Wake Forest...etc.
So in terms of employment, I would vote USC.
