General Board / Re: moot court + law review?

I think it means different things different places.  At my school, the intra-school competition is the one that is the big deal and that only 2Ls and 3Ls can participate in.  Each individual team  for various inter-school competitions is selected individually and can include 1Ls, and there's not that much competition for spots.

I did a lot of research on plans and probably would not have gone with UM's Chickering plan if I had been a guy, but because Chickering includes maternity (which is normally an additional coverage you have to purchase on other individual health insurance plans), I think it's a good deal for women.  Accidentally getting pregnant and not having maternity coverage would really suck.

Anyway, welcome!

I miss you guys. :)

I find that, despite the many rationalizations, most people who didn't apply for journals just didn't think they'd get on.

That might be true to some degree, but it's also way too black and white. 

If I had somehow known that if I tried for law review I would definitely make it, would I have done the competition?  Yes, because it is an important honor to have, and if it's there for the taking, you should take it. 

If I had really wanted to be on it, would I have tried?  Yes, for the chance to have the experience.

But (1) I knew that odds were that I wouldn't, AND (2) I didn't particularly want to be on it (time commitment much larger than that for other journals) or to do the competition (was about to leave country for 2.5 months, and wanted to spend time with husband).

At a certain point, you have to make the choices that are going to make you happy.

Well, I actually meant the opposite, if we're talking about the shoe itself, not the height of the woman.  A 5 inch heel on a tiny shoe is proportionally a lot higher than on a very large shoe.

Me five, please!

I think the appropriateness of a particular heel height depends on the size of the shoe.  Trust me... a 3 inch heel on a size 11 does not look the same as a 3 inch heel on a size 5.  The angle of "steepness" is completely different.

If you want me to put you in touch with anyone who can talk to you about the wife/kid thing in Ann Arbor, drop me a line.
