You can be a success no matter where you go.  For instance one could: go to Cooley, work their ass off to get great grades, get a job at some small firm, save a few bucks, open their own practice, sue the pants off somebody and win a huge verdict, run a "successful" firm.  It isn't that far fetched.

This is the path my neighbor took.  He went to Northern Kentucky like 20 years ago and now runs his own small firm...and is totally loaded.  Last I checked, NKU doesn't get much more respect than Cooley.  Conversely, my step-uncle(is that what I call him?) went to Harvard law and still works in the publc sector in upstate New York, making not that much money.  He likes the hours and benefits, from what I hear.  I know everybody here hates anecdotal evidence, but you can be a success wherever you go.  It just depends on your definition of success and how hard you are willing to work.

I'm freaking out, but maybe it's because of the game tonight.  Not sure which is more important...playoffs or LSAT score??

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Political Climate on Campus

Is this really measurable? I think there are few people in the world who are strictly conservative or liberal. A professor who might be liberal on one issue could be conservative on another. It does seem, however, that schools with more of an "economic focus" are known for their conservatism. More relgious schools would be known for their social conservatism. Public schools are more likely to be liberal. And some schools are famous for their liberalness, ie, Berkeley, and NYU, or the "Berkeley of the East".

I would say this is right on.  I'd only add that as a general rule, assume most schools lean at least slightly left unless you know otherwise.

nevermind...I sold it after it was on amazon for around 3 hours. 


ok here I decided it was easier just to put it on Amazon.  Mine is the first one listed...for $42.99

The book has been very lightly used and has no writing in is in perfect shape.  PM me and we can try to work out a way to do the payment and shipping.  I'll sell it for $40 + shipping (probably about $45 total).

I may put this up on Amazon or, so I'll update this thread with a link if I do.

well try this one on:

If I stay in the midwest for LS, I'll either end up at IU or UIUC.  I'm giving the initial edge to UIUC because of job prosepects in Chicago, but other than that, I'm having a difficult time making a decision.  I have been to IU several times and it's a great campus/town.  I have never been to UIUC, but I do plan to visit in the upcoming months.

Care to spew venom about your neighbors?  Maybe some criteria I have not thought about yet?

I hear rumors that UIUC is not going to let out of state residents get in state tuition...supposedly they are trying to put this in effect soon.  Any truth to this??

The only matchup that matters is Florida's D-line vs. OSU's O-line...if they can't get consistent pressure on Troy Smith and their running game, they will get gashed over and over like everybody else.  Florida can't win this game in a shootout.  They also will need every turnover to go their way.  Possible?  yes...but I wouldn't put it close to 50/50.

Oh and I bet OSU won't be ready for Tebow when he comes in...since the plays he runs are always so diverse.  Tebow up the middle.  Tebow up the middle.  Tebow off-tackle.  Tebow up the middle.  Tebow fakes up the middle, then passes.  Tebow up the middle.

Tebow might have a good run or two, but will generally be a non-factor.  Urban Meyer is not stupid enough to hand over the controls in a national title game to a freshman over a 4-year starter.  Florida playing lights-out D is the only way they win.

Florida fans need to take off their blinders, acknowledge they are playing a better team, and root for their boys to pull off the upset.

You're are so right. I guess every other defensive coordinator just failed to realize that irt was so easy to stop Tebow. I've never said that Tebow could win this game if he had to shoulder te load. In fact, I don't think he'll be that good next year when teams are building there game plans around him. The kid is far from a prolific passer. But he is a resource that OSU cannot match. If Chris Leak even fatigues down to 80-75%, Tebow will step in. Troy Smith wouldn't come out of the game unless he was about to die because OSU doesn't have a Tim Tebow waitng in the wings. Tebow will be a factor, but only late in the game (as he has been all year).

You'll have to excuse me. Florida and my team both play in the SEC, where the defense always shows up. What is a shootout? I wouldn't know.

Tebow averaged 36 yds/game rushing, and even less than that I am pretty sure that "it was so easy to stop Tebow."  If it wasn't then he would have gotten a few more snaps this year.  FYI he got most of his yards on 20+ yard runs, which he is good for a rate of one per game.  Aside from those longer runs, he generally was shut down.  His stats support this.  I'm not saying the kid won't be good eventually, I just don't think he will be a factor in this game.  Oh and the comparison to Troy Smith is silly b/c OSU has a viable runnning game without him.  OSU and Florida run totally different offenses, so claiming Florida's QB rushing yards as a resource that "OSU cannot match" is ridiculous.  I would, however, expect Troy Smith to run a bit more than usual in this game since it's his last...there is no need for Tressel to save him for fear of injury.

What I meant by "shootout" is simply the fact that OSU averaged 36 PPG...while Florida only reached that number only 3 out of 13 times this year.  If Florida gets into that kind of game, they simply don't have the firepower to match.  Oh wait, that won't happen because Florida is an SEC team and the defense always shows up in the SEC  ::)
