Incoming 1Ls / real estate development
« on: January 18, 2007, 05:06:47 PM »
I will be taking on a real estate development position in the very near future (By the way I have an mba from a small school). It doesn't pay particularly well, but the exposure to the business will be invaluable. Real estate development is a passion of mine, but I still have a deep seeded passion for real estate and securitization law. I will not start applying for law school until 07/08. Assuming I get into a great school (strong assumption I know) Do you think I should forego this desire to pursue law and invest those 3 years in my development position or say what the hell and go to law school.

I have no idea what you're saying.  It looks like you're asking questions, but there are no question marks.  Are you just stating your opinion?  If so, why did you bump it?

To answer your question i don't know what i am saying either  ::)

Is it then fair to presume that their is a negative correlation between associates looks and firm prestige. The homely red head that played partner on 'sex in the city' would be a god send compared to the rest of the hags, especially at the end of a 13hr day.
As an objective heterosexual male I will also argue that the younger male associates are probably much more attractive by leaps and bounds than their female counterparts.

Another superficial point...I think the elder statesmen at these firms specifically the female gender age with significantly more grace. There is no greater contrast than a balding white guy with gray hair and big ears standing next to a polished 'devil wears prada'esque type women'

So how long till this gets re-taxonimized (since we're into great words) to HATERADE?
Interesting theory.  I guess in your case, there is a direct positive relationship between LSAT scores and prickishness.

Also, how do you know this person isn't beautiful and stupid?

Yeah! How do you know I am not beautiful and stupid?

There's an interesting thread about changing hairstyles because of perception. There is a pretty heated discussion in there about "coddling to the white man" so you might want to look at that.

i consider myself quite in touch with my AAAAfrican roots. I also think I possess a higher level of global awareness (meaning knowledge of the current plight of other ethinicies and nationalities) than most, but one thing I love about western culture is the advent of black women with perms. boy oh boy do i love a fresh perm

please excuse the flavor flav in me

how can you tell the difference between those that were raised in a diverse environment and those that are "doing the most?" listen i'll rock my loafers and argyle socks and sweaters in a second.. all the while listening to Umi Says on my Ipod.. so I really don't see your point here... and the last time I checked.. there isn't a certain vernacular that a person has to speak in order to remain true to their "blackness"... nothing wrong with flip flops..and a man that can rock a nice bowtie with some suspenders well will catch my eye...

its not about vernacular sweetie. take it from someone that grew up in the suburbs their whole life probably just like you. i have a white best friend who is a staunch republican and i talk the same way with him that i do my close black friends (with the exception of the n word) a lot of time black folks that grow up in a diverse environment see the world a bit to distorted. I think often times they give others people (meaning white folks) a pass for blatant exhibitions of racism, but will criticize you for pointing out other people ignorance masked as naivety

pardon my spelling

I hold an MBA. I am thinking about attending law school next year. The point i am making is in when i was in school a few, but not alot of black folks seem to coddle to their white classmates all the while forgetting that they were of the opposite spectrum
