Where should I go next fall? / Re: Rutgers mugging

That said, the Rutgers mugging does bother me. BUTCH, do you have more details? (i.e. time of day, victim's dress and demeanor, exact location, etc.)  I'd be much less concerned if it was late at night and the vic was walking alone in a dark alley or indoor garage after getting drunk at McGoverns and wearing a lot of bling bling.

 bahahahahahaha  he is nerevouse now hahahahahahaha

Mais oui, je suis tres nerevouse!

Muggings can happen anywhere, and I know more people who have been mugged or otherwise victimized in NYC.  (Also, NYC is a really huge and vastly diverse area...there are many suburbanish type areas of Bklyn and Queens that are low in crime. But, if you compared some individual neighborhoods to Newark, then the crime rate is higher in NYC)

Very true. When I lived in Elmhurst, Queens a few years ago, four guys jumped me while I was walking home alone at 7:00 pm on a Friday night. It was winter so it was dark, and it was on a quiet residential street with minimal traffic/activity. Not as bad as being mugged by a guy with a gun, I suppose, but facing four guys with knives wasn't a lot of fun either!

She didn't die, and it happened in Midtown.

Ah, that's good to know. Stupid newscasters always make things seem worse than they really are.

Wasn't there a lady who got killed a few years ago in the Upper East Side (hardly a sketchy neighborhood) when some crazy homeless guy snuck up behind her in broad daylight and smashed her head in with a brick? If God says it's time to go, then it's time to go. Location is but a small detail.

The attitude was fine, probably called for...lighten up.  The OP is asking a question that can--and has--been answered any number of other ways, many other times, in this very location.  There's nothing wrong with a "rude" answer to such a lazy question.

Ah, I see. And what do you say to people on the street who asks for the time?

"F*ck off, loser - even my maid knows where to get a stinkin' watch!"

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Vermont vs. Albany...

Not knowing much about either school's program, I do have to say that I agree with TradeWonk. If you want to work in NY/NJ/PA, Vermont just seems like a really odd choice. Also, my ex is from upstate NY so I used to live near Albany, and truth be told, if I had to (say if the ex and I were still together and I too lived upstate), I think Albany has plenty of legal opportunities being the state capital and all, and I can definitely see myself being happy with a thriving career there.

C'mon people. Nobody here is going to the BLS reception at Skadden Arps next Tuesday 3/15?

Nobody here is interested in attending BLS? Nobody here is interested in meeting partners and associates at a firm like Skadden?

BLS has been pretty aggressive with their Razzle Dazzle campaign with all the glossy 4-color brochures galore. Aren't you at least curious what delightful eye candy awaits in the Skadden boardroom?

Yes? No?

Hofstar is offering $25,000 for you to go. Any reasons for choosing Rutgers over it? (just out of curiosity)

Even though this is directed to Littletanuki, I'm taking the liberty of answering since I'm also picking Rutgers over full scholarships elsewhere (Hofstra, St. Johns, Seton Hall, NYLS). I actually like Hofstra a lot, but like Littletanuki, I don't want to live/work in Long Island. I currently live in NJ and want to practice there (maybe Manhattan too), so Rutgers makes more sense than St. Johns or NYLS. As for Seton Hall, it just doesn't seem to have as strong a reputation as Rutgers. I'm leery about going to a school just because it gives me a full scholarship because what happens if I lose it? Some of them have really stringent GPA requirements. I think it's a scam in that the system is set up so that most full-scholarship recipients will not be able to keep their awards for all three years.

I just got my FA letter too.

LITTLETANUKI: I got work study too, which is strange because I specifically said NO to work study when filling out my FAFSA. I'm not going to do it. First, you really shouldn't be working during 1L anyway. Second, even if I did want to work, I can find PT employment that pays MUCH better than a crummy $9/hr work study job. Did they have you down as "on-campus" or "commuter"? Is it strange that according to Rutgers, your expenses are HIGHER as an "on-compus" ($23,000 vs. $16,000 for a "commuter")? Shouldn't it be the other way around? Maybe I'm reading this wrong.

SEU: I don't think application/decision dates matter. It depends on when you filed your FAFSA and when the schools got your SAR.

[I think that if you plan on staying in the NY/NJ area for at least 5 years, you should look into buying, not renting. IMO renting is a total waste of money.]

Well, not everyone can afford to buy...

Of course not. That post was directed only to Nerfherder (who asked the question). I took into account the fact that he is married and presumably would have a working spouse to help pay the bills.
