General Off-Topic Board / Re: BANKERS MAKE 5x WHAT LAWYERS MAKE
« on: December 12, 2006, 06:20:30 PM »
A typical MD at Goldman makes $5M per year while the typical partner at a V50 would be lucky to make $1M. I am wondering why so many of you want to become lawyers when you could make so much more in banking.

I think it would take me a long time to get through medical school, residency AND THEN learn how to be a banker.

Law School Applications / Re: Michigan Status Update: Decision (Nov 14)
« on: December 12, 2006, 05:50:22 PM »
Just a suggestion, but we should probably start some new threads here:

1. UMich applicants: Under the table
2. UMich Rejections
3. UMich Waitlists
4. UMich Accepted!

Law School Applications / Re: GW Acceptances

I withdrew on Monday from GW via email.  Genuinely friendly response, "UMich's gain is our loss" but no mention of decisions or anything. GW is quality though!!!

Minority Topics / Re: Asian or white: which one gives me more of an edge?
« on: December 10, 2006, 12:20:30 PM »
I've seen many law schools just talk about their overall minority numbers, like USC listing about "37% self identified minority students" on their diversity stuff.  Don't worry, I highly doubt it will hurt you either way.  Your score is excellent, schools like excellent scores, you're golden. 

Your undergrad experience may just be a crazy anomaly, or maybe work on soft factors - PS, LOR, ECs - this time around.  I am not sure on the LSD consensus on LSAT v. SAT but from my experience and LSN, supply & demand factors seem to advantage high scoring applicants pretty consistently.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Taking UMich over Columbia???
« on: December 08, 2006, 10:58:44 PM »


To answer his question - no, it would not be unwise to take UMich. over Columbia.

For the record, I have nothing against Morningside.  I even like the General Grant Memorial, random as it is.  I think I am going with Michigan, and I will probably go for a JD/MA.  Thanks for the comments, especially demingh.
