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.

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.

Yeah I took Elements too, with Stotzky.  We studied a line of cases on indefiniteness in contracts and the exam was a 20 page excerpt from Tom Sawyer.  I think the prompt was something along the lines of relate this material to our work in indefiniteness and the legal philosophers we read.  The issues discussed in class were almost entirely irrelevant to the exam.  Miami is very Chicago influenced, and IMHO that segment of academia is unabashedly competitive.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: W&L or FSU - no $ either place

I'm here!  Either school is a great choice.  You're lucky to have this dilemma.  IMHO W&L is the better choice because of reputation and location.

Its not just your class, its a long standing sentiment in the legal community and academic communiity.  There is actualy a University of Chicago method in academia and its cut-thoat.  The basic premis is that not every student deserves to work in the law, the law is a supreme responsibiltiy, etc.  These people invented hide the ball.  Read up on Soia Mentchikoff, Irwin Stotzky, Carl Llewellen and blame them for your school's reputation.  If I was a hiring partner at a big firm would I pick a Michigander over someone from Chicago, no; would I think any better of the Chicago applicant based souly on her law school, definately not.
