well hes not a guy i blew in a dark alley way because im not in the habit of blowing guys.
however he is my brother so actually he would hire me for a job I wasn't qualified for, but like i said he works for the financial corporation in the financial department not the legal dept. and although hes not an entry level employee with no pull he also can't outright hire me.

yea I have a great connection to a large financial company who assures me he can obtain a position for me in their legal department. The thing is I just don't see places like this being so willing to hire an entry level attorny with no large law firm experience, especially as it seems these jobs are highly coveted, even though the pay isn't overwhelming (he told me they usually start around 90k). Although my connection is solid, i.e. not some shmuck I met at a  BBQ giving me lip service, I just think they may be naive to the competition prevalent in the legal market. Any thoughts? Is it possible to obtain jobs like this in this manner?

im not going to argue with you anymore, everything i say you twist and turn into something completely different. this started out as me making a mere observation as to what the patriots did this offseason you think it's different from the yankees fine whatever.
oh yea and some people would say randy moss is washed up too, and donte stallworth when was the last time he played a full season?
the money aspect i don't even know where you pulling this stuff from. I was jsut making a mere observation that a lot of times the teams with the most talented individual players do not win, and i was using the yankees as an example of that. unbelievable.

point remains its an opinion and there is no right or wrong answer.
what is not an opinion however si that you said these players have no gas left in the tank, the numbers dont lie buddy they have all had just as good years with the yankees as they have throughout their career, with the exception of randy johnson.
the guys that got injured last year had nothing to do with frailty or being old, matsui breaking his hand while making a diving catch, the guys whole wrist bent backwards ANYONE is going to break something in that situation. on to sheffield the guy rarely gets hurt and last year he got injured when he got tripped in a freak play at first base. as for the pitchers i have no idea pitchers in general just seem to get hurt a lot and don't tell me otherwise, because i would say like 90% of teams have had at least one pitcher on the DL this season and most teams more then one.


regardless of the fact im done arguing with you, i address your points and then you go on to bring up irrelevant facts like contracts which were never even brought into the equation. then you go to say im bragging that we HAVENT won in a few years, I have no idea where you come from but NOT winning isnt something to be bragging about.

NOW MY POINT IS ADDING THE MOST TALENT IS NOT GOING TO EQUAL A SUPERBOWL/CHAMPIONSHIP AND I WAS USING THE YANKEES AS AN EXAMPLE OF THIS. IM NOT TALKING ABOUT MONEY OR LONG TERM CONTRACTS OR ANYTHING ELSE IS THAT SIMPLE ENOUGH FOR YOU.

ok now go twist that statement into something else, oh yea and as a yankee fan its funny because i think they do stupid things too, and i agree they have been bad in their free agent signings, but not because the guys have not performed. It's just that a team of mercenaries is never going to win because they are never going to try as hard and have the same chemistry as a home grown team, with some veteran leadership so there is no need to attack the yankees way of doing thing. ok? i agree i submit on that point.

ok ok ill wait more then 6 posts before i say "get this guy outta here" sorry just a little joke i have with my buddies.

however last time i checked the aforementioned free agent signings with the exception randy johnson all had a lot of gas left in the tank. All of these players also have been just as productive on the yankees as they ever have been in their career. So please with the exception of randy johnson show me someone who has no gas left?
Arod is doing laps around the majors in most categories, sheffield almost won an MVP while he was here (but oh wait he didn't because arod won it that year) so for you to say we sign people with no gas left in the tank is absurd.
I guess that's how we have been making it to the playoffs for the past 11 straight seasons.

yea thats who the yankee spent all theirmoney on, randy johnson and clemens......
what about arod, bobby abreau, hideki matsui, gary sheffield, jason giambi, johnny damon last time i checked they have all been asproductive as they have ever been since joining the team....
oh yea one other thing roger clemens may be an "old fart", but other then santana who else is better then him in the american league, you apparently havent watched the guy pitch for the past two years......
get this guy outta here........

Yeah, I didn't want to bring up all the players who still haven't won you a championship but there they are. By the way, Sheffield, isn't on your team anymore, dumbass.

And Clemens was about a .500 pitcher last year in the National League. So I can think of plenty of pitchers that are better than him. He can't go all nine innings, the Yankee's bullpen being in the shape it's in, and going to the AL east, he'll be lucky to win eight games.

i know sheffield is not currently on the team i am just using him as one of the free agent signings that have occurred since we last won a championship..
clemens was a .500 pitcher you are correct, he also allowed 2 or less runs in 12 of those starts and enver gave up more then 4, his run support was a paltry 4 runs a game which is why he was a .500 pitcher,so saying that he was a .500 pitcher in a disparaging waydoes not measure up when yout ake into account all of the elements involved...

and back to your main point which you have so completely strayed from was that we acquire people who are washed up which is NOT the case, but more TALENT does not equal better TEAM...

LT is a top running back in the NFL there is no question, but it was also the system AND HIS LINE if you noticed i think some ridiculous number of his touchdown runs were from one side, the left i do think but again not sure, and that was mainly due to that side of the line. Also if he does this year and out and you say then why was the hype around a guy named larry johnson BEFORE the season started oh yea now i remember because he was ridiculous in 2005.
08 running back stud of the year=steven jackson, the only thing that will hold this guy back  is the fact of how good his offense is and that his teams defense is trash so they will be playing from behind a lot.

on to the patriots they have added a ridiculous amount of talent this offseason more so then i have ever seen on a patriots team, but beware patriots fans, this coming from a yankee fan, it seems though they are following our game plan of just adding talent to preserve a dynasty, and it seems the bigger names we add the further we get from another championship. Bill Belicheck is a master though so i fully expect great things from them, but then again if they got bounced in the first round also wouldn't surprise me.

Incoming 1Ls / Re: St. Johns vs others

i fully expect to admitted into those three schools, if i were to retake the LSAT to raise my score it would be the sole intention of aiming at Fordham, and if i raise it 3-4 my score will be 164-165, which was is what i thought i was going to attain when i took the exam...
well i fully expect to be admitted to miami, tulane, and brooklyn just curious as to how they stack up to st johns?
i did some research on NALP.org and it seems they are 130 employers who recruit on campus at st. johns as opposed to only 90 at tulane, wth brooklyn at 150 and the consensus that the school is only marginally better...
anyway i am just curious if you dont finish in the top of your class if your still going to be able to find work, actually good work.

Incoming 1Ls / St. Johns vs others
« on: May 06, 2007, 03:06:41 AM »
i was recently admitted to st johns universtiy school of law and even recieved some scholarship money which would probably total around 1/3 of the total cost of school. now of all the schools i have heard from st. johns so far is my best option, however i am still awaiting decisions from the university of miami, tulane, and brooklyn law school. cany anyone give me an insight into what the career prospects are of st. johns grads compared to those of the aforemenitoned 3 schools?
my other dilemma is the fact that i am quite sure if i got in the ring for another round with good old mr. lsat i could do at least 3-4 points better...any opinions here would be greatly appreciated
