I recommend the South Beach diet. It was developed by a cardiologist.
I hacked all ur computers and ran a test of my own. Strangely, this statement accurately reflects the personality of everyone in this thread:
You have a need for other people to like and admire you, and yet you tend to be critical of yourself. While you have some personality weaknesses you are generally able to compensate for them. You have considerable unused capacity that you have not turned to your advantage. Disciplined and self-controlled on the outside, you tend to be worrisome and insecure on the inside. At times you have serious doubts as to whether you have made the right decision or done the right thing. You prefer a certain amount of change and variety and become dissatisfied when hemmed in by restrictions and limitations. You also pride yourself as an independent thinker; and do not accept others' statements without satisfactory proof. But you have found it unwise to be too frank in revealing yourself to others. At times you are extroverted, affable, and sociable, while at other times you are introverted, wary, and reserved. Some of your aspirations tend to be rather unrealistic.
don't put too much stock into whether personality tests make a good fit for being a lawyer. the law field, much like everything else, takes all types!
I agree with this totally, but I think he was looking for the types that enjoy law school itself. I'm an ENTJ for whatever it's worth (really interesting to me because I was an ENTP 5 years ago).
If you want to see exactly where grads of both schools are practicing, you should do an advanced search on Martindale.com. This will most likely give you a more accurate picture than "all the Dickinson grads I know are doing X", etc

None of these schools have very good reach outside their regional market. But PSU or Dickinson grads (which most past grads still prefer to identify themselves as) don't even place that great in Philly, the main legal market in the state.
