Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Re: US law school rankings/admissions

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?

ooh, did either of you read Barman?  It's about a Temple grad and his road to biglaw.  I loved it.

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

On ink...one 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.

Transferring / Re: Georgia State v. Emory.... is the money worth it?

looks like your chance at GA biglaw would increase by a factor of 4, not too shabby, and possibly worth the extra debt.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Franklin Pierce law center

It's challenging for everyone.  I did take a lot of philosophy type courses.  The good thing about it is that it is learnable.  I remember going into it thinking it was the most important test of my life, and looking back on it I still feel that way.
