Maintain, have you given up on Hillary now that you see I was right that the FBI are going to interrogate hillary, huma and Cheryl?

Or do you think I made up that the FBI was going to interview her?

You seemed to be shocked now into silence...she may still have a chance but odds are that she was negligent. Agree?

No, it's just that nothing new has been added to the conversation. You're just repeating the same stuff, so there's nothing interesting to respond to.

Online Law Schools / Re: Online PhD or LLD in Law

At least in the US, these degrees wouldn't even be useful for academia.

Law schools will want a JD from a top tier school, plus relevant experience. Other academic positions, such as teaching law/policy at the undergrad level, are incredibly competitive. Even small colleges and local state universities will get 200-300 applicants when a tenure track job opens up. They have their pick of the litter, and an online degree from a foreign university won't get past the first round.

Maintain, I will remind you that Brian pagliano was interviewed months ago

Yes, but what came of it? So far, nothing.

If there was some bombshell in Pagliano's testimony, don't you think the FBI would have acted on it by now?

Unless Sanders wins those states by at least 2/3, it's irrelevant. Winning by few points won't give him enough delegates to make up the difference. In fact, he could win small states like Wyoming by 100% and it would only get him a few delegates. Not nearly enough to make up for Clinton's upcoming win California. 

BTW, if the FBI is so hot on the trail of Clinton's supposed criminal activity, why have they not interviewed her or any of her associates? You keep saying they're going to, but the fact is they haven't.

Ok so I was wrong about the FBI calling huma in on Monday.  It was Tuesday. Hahahahahahaha!!!!!!

I can't find anything about Huma Abedin being questioned by the FBI.

Source?

I tend to agree with Citylaw, I doubt that there is too much difference between the schools. Pitt may have a slightly stronger rep, I don't really know.

I would look at the scholarship retention rates at each school, and the scholarship stipulations as Citylaw said. If one is easier to retain, I'd be inclined to take that one.

A periodical

This is so awesome, it has to be fake. I'm going to start citing my sources as "An Internet".

Question - I was just waitlisted at Emory.  Would Emory Law hold enough clout/prestige to open up doors outside of the Atlanta region (still talking east coast/northeast)?  I think that they are Top 20-ish?

I suppose it depends on what (if any) scholarship they offer. Emory at sticker? In my opinion, no. Emory is a good school with a good rep, but it's not Harvard. Honestly, I think that there are only seven or eight schools that are worth sticker. 

Outside of the Southeast, people will say "Emory? Yeah, that's cool. Atlanta is nice." They won't be so blown away that they'll offer you a job based on pedigree alone, though. In the Southeast that might be a different story, I don't know. I'm speaking more from my perspective in CA.

The other thing is this: people from Emory definitely go into Biglaw and prestigious federal jobs, but who are those people? My guess is that they are top performers, law review, etc. If I were you I would research the job opportunities for average, middle ranked Emory grads, since that is most likely where you'll end up.

Again, looking at it from my perspective, a middle of the pack Emory grad who shows up in LA after law school probably has similar job prospects to a mid ranked Loyola or Pepperdine grad, regardless of rankings. An Emory grad Atlanta or Memphis might be a different story.

I think you're still in a position where you need to think about where you want to live after law school.

I can't believe that you dont think she should have the nomination wrapped up already. That is why I think you are misled, sorry.

Cinnamon, you're missing my point.

She does have the nomination wrapped up already, Sanders has lost, and she will be the nominee. 

FBI investigations and their potential impact are just that: potential. Maybe it will have an impact, maybe it won't.

What is not potential, but is concrete fact, is that Sanders must win 2/3 of the remaining delegates to have a chance. Think about what that means for a minute. In California, for example, that means Sanders would have to magically go from his current 37% to 67% in the next few weeks. In every remaining primary Sanders would have to pick up not just 3-5 points, but more like 20-30.

There is zero evidence to suggest that's happening.

If your response is "Yes, but future FBI bombshells will affect the race", then we're back to the land of speculation and wishful thinking.

BTW, she just won Missouri.

Here's the thing, Cinnamon. When Clinton gets the nomination will you say "Oops, I was wrong"?

No. You'll say "She'll never win the general election because FBI/Pagliano/Benghazi/Travelgate pop pop pop drip drip drip.

Then, when she wins the general and is sworn in as Prez you'll say "She'll be impeached because of . . ."

It's all wishful thinking. I'm not a Clinton fan either, but I don't see the point in believing in things simply because I want to, devoid of evidence.
