I'm starting a blog chronicling entertaining stories that you witness happen or are involved in 1L.  If any of you have good stories, starting w/ orientation please personal message me and I'll post it and attribute it to your LSD screen name as the writer.

I don't care if the stories are funny, or if you are just pissed off about a fellow student or frustrated with a teacher or just whatever....shoot me the story and I'll post it and say written by "your LSD name"

I just started the site.  It's called http://www.firstyearoflawschool.blogspot.com/  I'd love all the participation.  Just personal message me your story and I'll copy and paste it as written (maybe I'll edit your typos.).  Thanks guys, hope to hear from you. 

While you're checking 1st year blogs, check our "May it Please the Court", my guide for pre-law and 1st year law students, at http://wikilaw.blogspot.com

Brett, I'd love to have you guestblog at some point.

But GSU, UF, and SMU tend to be the most desireable "biglaw" feeders in Atlanta.


Did you mean UGA?

No I meant GSU, but I don't know how I forgot to mention UGA as well.

You're the one who's using Savage's 'tar. You can claim ignorance, but you still haven't changed it. That's rude.

You're the one who decided to spam the board. One mention of your blog is fine. Six in one day is spam.

You are a rude spammer. I do not believe you are trying to help people. And I certainly wouldn't take advice from you.

HTFH.

And yet here you remain, engaging in conversation with me, in a thread designed to help people. You're certainly showing yourself to be doing a great job of it. As for taking advice from me, I wasn't offering it to you.

As for the avatar, I have no intention of changing it. It's not "his", he does not own it. That image has been around for quite a long time. I uploaded it before I ever knew who Savage was, and given the two of you're attitudes I don't see any reason I should change it.

Ditching the speculation for a moment, schools that place very well for summer associates at national firms with an Atlanta office include T14, as one would assume. GSU places quite well, as does UF. and SMU. Emory and Mercer places with top class rank. But GSU, UF, and SMU tend to be the most desireable "biglaw" feeders in Atlanta.

Holland and Knight  Atlanta office profile: http://www.hklaw.com/Careers/ClassProfiles.asp?Profile=SummerAssociates (Emory, Mercer, GSU, and Michigan.)

(interesting side note, at the bottom, west palm branch, "Adam blank"...I saw his name and thought "Wow! I grew up with that kid!")

First of all, turn off your filter, noob. I called you a d o u c h e  b a g.

Second of all, it's rude to steal someone's 'tar.

Third, go the f uck away.

Again with the stealing of the avatars. Install the lolcat application on facebook. This is one of the pictures there, I got it from here. Do you seriously think this guy came up with that avatar? No, this is one of the most famous lolcat photoshops on the internet.

Your post is so idiotic, I don't know where to begin.

Simply put, you're using a 'tar that Savage is known for on this board. That's rude.

In my 2 days on this board I'm supposed to know who uses what avatar? Especially one that is fairly common all over the internet? I'll leave it to google image to show you what an incredible ass you're being to a new editor, who is attempting to help aspiring law students, rather than troll new editors.

Simple google image search for "dangerous to go alone take this".

Look I don't know who you guys are or why you're getting off on this but how about you guys go away to some other thread, and let this one get back to being about answering questions for American students. You know, law school discussion, what this whole site is supposed to be about, right?

What a feminine hygiene product bag. Doesn't even know what the word troll means, has done nothing but spam the board, and even stole Savage's avatar.
Savage's avatar that was lolcat of the day on facebook? My god, what a theft! There's no way that anyone ELSE ever visits ICHC, macrochan, or other lolcat sites.

Apparently several hundred of them are. Your mileage may very. But if you're not interested in discussing american, then you can troll elsewhere, thanks.

Pre-Law in high school / Re: UF VS. FSU
« on: August 07, 2007, 03:14:41 PM »
Ok, I went to FSU undergrad, was accepted to but did not go to UF Law.

UF is absolutely the better law school, hands down. There's a reason it's referred to the Harvard of the South. It's a school with a national ranked reputation. When you look at the summer associate lists at major Washington and New York firms, you see UF grads, and no FSU grads (I'm talking law atm.)

For undergrad, keep in mind what you want to do. FSU is hands down the better communication school, EXCEPT for journalism. Journalism is UF's role. UF medical school is better and more established so if you're going pre-med and think you got the grades, that's a better place, but FSU med is easier to get into. FSU has one of the national premiere meteorology and criminology schools. UF has significantly better environmental studies courses and finance.

Also consider the town. Both Gainesville and Tallahassee are small towns. Neither has all that much to do. Gainesville has more bars, restaurants and nightlife stuff. Tallahassee, though having less nightlife, has more intense nightlife. There's a reason that FSU is a party school. At the bar that I worked at in tallahassee, it was packed wall to wall during weekdays. UF doesn't have quite that big of a party scene, but there ARE more places to go to party.

Both are fairly large sprawling campuses. Both have awful trafic.

UF has better basketball. If you like basketball, that might be a consideration. UF and FSU are both huge football schools. While UF has the better team, Football is a bigger deal at FSU...some would say it is life at FSU. I had a professor who got drunk and fell out of a window and broke his neck when FSU beat miami. (Ironically, in supreme court class). FSU football games are intense from the day before the game until the day after the game, whether it's the war drum, the garnet and gold girls/boys, the flaming spear society, chief osceola....

You might get to say you're last years national champions at UF, but the experience is so much more at FSU. Also...bobby bowden. Enough said.

If you're interested in ROTC, FSU is one of 3 (or 4 I forget) schools that have a battle streamer for ROTC, and is consistently ranked one of the top ROTC schools in the nation. It also has one of the highest amounts of combat veterans in any school ROTC program (as students, not instructors). The air force RTOC is consistently highly rated too. UF ROTC is ...less so.

If you're jewish, you might have better luck at UF, as hillel and JSU have a bigger presence. Fraternities are also bigger at UF (but realistically that's only because FSU attempts to suppress fraternities as much as possible). Sororities, however, are equally big at both places.

For undergrad, if you're on florida bright futures
