Never would I have expected such heated debate over a mostly silly article written by some guy who happened to go to a good law school.

and ended up writing articles for f*cking CBS sports...

Not exactly the first person I would be taking advice from, but that's just me

you're just bitter that he trashes cornell.  ;)

And every other school better than Vandy...

But that definitely had an influence..."wah wah, nobody would ever WANT to go to Cornell, they must be prestige whores"

Asshat...

The Biglaw lawyer making 100,000 working 80 hours per week makes SO much more than the lawyer making 50,000 working 40 hours per week. That's like, twice as much.

Questionable.  Technically, the Biglaw lawyer is making more money.  The lawyer working 40 hours a week may not have the opportunity to make more.

You'll get in everywhere you apply!

How did you prepare for finals?

What are the pros and cons of study groups, in your opinion?

What do you think of the BCS bowl matchups this year?

I thought that's just how it worked. I've talked to my pre-law adviser about this and she gave me the same impression. Hm.

Pre-law advisers are generally worthless and know less than the average LSD poster.  There are exceptions, but not many.

Oh holy bejesus.

I won't even touch ethics or contracts, and just say this:

If you do it you're a feminine hygiene product.  Why?  Because that's money that they tied up, for you, with the understanding that you were going to go there.  And guess what, since you're sitting on that money, that means that there might be someone else out there who might have gotten some of that money instead, but didn't, and is now going to their 2nd/3rd/whatever choice schools because NYU wasn't going to work financially.

You knew what you were getting into.  You could have put it on the line in hopes of getting off a waitlist.  But you didn't, and now you're trying to have your cake and eat it too.

At some point, you have to learn how to live with the choices that you make.  I suggest sooner rather than later.

I got some pretty weird (at least I think) questions during my 1L callbacks, like how I prepared for exams, what I thought were pros and cons of study groups, and some other assorted weirdness.  I see how they relate, but they were questions I was NOT expecting.

Also, I learned that if you put interests on your resume, 9/10 they WILL ask you about them, sometimes in significant detail.  I was expecting that some would, but nearly every interviewer spent at least 5 minutes talking about one or more of them.

Best advice: Treat law school like war. Don't need to make friends.  If you got no job in 3 years, you naturally have no friends because you got no money to hang out with them.

Worst advice: Going to social events like bar nights.  More drinking = lower grades = unemployment line. That was true 100 years ago, that was true in college, and that is even more true in law school.

What a sad life you must have
