Bear in mind that's it's tough to get a job in Chicago at a big firm--period.  You're competing with UChicago grads (ranked #6 by U.S. News in 2008), Northwestern grads (#12), Chicago-Kent grads (#60), Loyola grads (#70), DePaul grads (#91), John Marshall grads (T4), Northern Illinois grads (T4) and a large majority of University of Illinois grads (#25).  That's some pretty stiff competition.  Saint Louis has a lot to offer; likewise , I think you'd be surprised with what the Midwest offers.  Chicago is by far not the only "cultured" place around here.

Wow.  Or maybe you could note in your personal statement that you're an intolerant bigot.  I mean, they can't ask you to prove it, so...maybe you can find out what would happen then.

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Going to SLU

Well, I guess I've finally made the decision to attend SLU after I got dinged at FIU.  I'll be attending the summer institute there--is anyone else doing this?

Affirmative Action / Re: How Do You Feel About Affirmative Action?

Exactly, no matter how much I preach, it'll never sink in.  You'll always think that because of the history involved, you'll think you are continually discriminated against.  Because racism existed in the 1960s, you should be given privileges post 2000.

AA is bull.  If everyone is to be treated equally, doesn't AA oppose this idea?  Furthermore, each law school applicant has gotten to undergrad one way or another.  Once we get there, we should work our asses off to get a high undergrad GPA and LSAT score.  At this point, your undergrad performance is what matters--not your race.  I think people often use their race to excuse a poor GPA/LSAT score.

Go to http://www.nalpdirectory.com/
Click "Advanced Search"
Then you can pick the schools under "Campus Interviews"

This shows what firms interview at each law school.  You can then click on an individual firm and see its starting salaries and a wealth of other interesting info.
