Knowledge of Spanish is by no means necessary for biglaw in Miami.  It could get you out from behind your desk once in awhile though, to entertain clients or pick them up at the airport.

One other thing is that Federal clerkship positions are sometimes more influenced by who you know rather than what you know.  You sould seriously look into doing an internship at a federal court while you're still in school, this segways nicely and if your judge likes you he/she will make that all-important phone call.

Wow, I don't really enough about either to say.  I know Vandy is really small.  Private  v. Public.  Possibility of instate during 3L at Texas.  You've got to keep us updated.

That was great.  Makes me feel bad about all the Cooley cracks I made in the last few years.

If you really turned down other scholarship offers and have proof of that you could argue the offer was binding on the school because you relied to your detrement.  They  might teach you this in  Contracts in a few weeks. On the other hand there is something to be said about picking your battles.

Doesn't every school require a BA/BS before enrollment?

Congrats Julie! Do you have any idea which one you'll pick?

That link I posted also shows the precentage of each class that clerked after  3L.  I don't think it differentiates between state and federal programs.  I'm interning in Federal court now and the judges I've asked here say they pick clerks based on their resume, GPA, and writing sample, what school they went to is often not a factor unless they hadn't heard of it.  The federal judiciary is filled with judges from every school and so they understand that not every good applicant went to HYorS. In fact, the judge I work for now went to Stetson.  That being said, the numbers show that a larger precentage of students from prestige schools land clerkships.

I think your chances are good at all.  I'd reach higher if I were you.  Did you get any offers yet?

You eat lamb?  I so don't have a crush on you anyome.

On of my deans fellows (like a TA) is an awesome gal.  She's also brilliant, and near the top of her class.  I was pretty shocked to see the tattoo on her ankle.  It's a dolphin jumping over a rose.  It is honestly the gayest thing I've ever seen. For real, peeps, if you have gay tattoos cover them up.
