I'd love to be there as well. As I'm already in Boston and have the yellow pages handy, I thought I'd post the bar's address so anyone can easily find it: 1222 Commonwealth Ave., Brighton   

Hope to see ya all there!

Boston U / Re: Weds night was great

Hey everyone,

Sorry I didn't post earlier. ;D Yeah, our Weds get-together was really great and I definitely want to be there again tomorrow night except that I'm participating in the community service option and don't know about what time I'll be off.

I'm in section B1 and, frankly, I don't know whether that's a good thing or not.

And my e-mail is yp_7205@hotmail.com. If anyone wants to contact me for anything, I'm here.  ;)

Suz, BU sounds like a blast! I'm actually looking forward to sitting in lectures and learning the law. Thanks for all your help and advice... You've been really helpful, and I hope to meet you in person next year!

And good luck with that journal writing competition... How long are those writing samples supposed to be anyway?

I know Boalt Hall ranks the waitlist...

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Priority Waiting Lists

Priority wait list you have a pretty decent chance, regular waiting list you do not.

As usual - not true. Some schools donít even have priority waitlists, yet they take from the waitlist quite a bit.

If you are on a priority waitlist, you have an even better chance of getting in. Good luck!

Those were the two schools I trully considered. I ended up choosing BU because of portability - I've talked to several lawyers in Seattle and they assured me that I'd have no problem finding a job with a BU degree. Doing the same on the East Coast just seems self-evident... UW, on the other hand, is a local school from what I gather...

PM me if you have any specific questions.

But when you say it like you do, you are essentially claiming that everyone in the top 40% of BU will get a NYC Big Law job if they bother applying - they don't.

How the hell do you know that??? Here you go again with your thoughtless and stupid conjectures...

The point is: BU's median salary is at the BigLaw level. Thus, about 50% of the class have a good shot at BigLaw. 23% of the class end up at NYC. When you take self-selection into account, you should realize that something like the top 40% of the class should be able to go into NYC BigLaw if they want to.

Also, the OP said nothing about NYC BigLaw, only work in NYC. I think itís safe to say that you can get an NYC job with a BU Law degree.

How about you come up with some constructive instead then? For example, point out where I was wrong? Do you believe people graduating in the 40-60% of their class rank at BU has any chance whatsoever at NYC Big Law? (Jobs in NYC, certainly) Or was it just a complete random whine?

Read Chad's comment!

I'm kinda surprised at seeing all these wankers coming out spewing negativity towards my posts lately, although I've been around here for months... Is it pissing you off that a good school admitted a person with sub-par numbers or something? Or is something else eating you morons?

You got on my nerves long before your acceptance to NYU... Someone who hasnít been on this board long enough might actually think you know what youíre talking about, while the truth is all you have to offer are thoughtless conjectures and assumptions! Now, Iím sure Iíve done that myself once or twice, like pretty much everyone else on here... But you do it every goddamn post!!
