I'll admit that the posts of some of the veteran LSDers on here have made me guilty about not knowing any ways of finding gainful employment except for OCI and mass-mailing.  Granted, I'm not yet a law student, but I think that it would be helpful to start thinking about the topic.  Should I give out my e-mail?  Buy a rolodex?  Get an expensive photo shoot done and distribute Ricky Gervais-like pictures of myself with a dove?

Let's brainstorm.  Or, at the very least, link to old articles about the subject.

I'll periodically bump this thread, while keeping track.  I know that we're all excited about attending ABA-certified Law Schools next year, so let's keep this thread as positive and friendly as we can.  If you would like, feel free to elaborate on your reasons for picking your school of choice.

FWIW, TLS already has a similar thread, and everyone over there seems to have a good idea of where they'll end up.

I'm curious as to how we feel about it, now that many of our options are coming together.  Pending decisions count as disappointments, or default WLs/Rejections at this point, unless you applied really, really late.

General Off-Topic Board / Bad Feeling About A Trip? Advice, Please.
« on: March 23, 2008, 02:40:12 PM »
I realize that the question is a little abstract, so I'll ground it by saying that I'm getting cold feet about visiting Boalt.  I generally don't like flying, and I don't have a very good gut feeling about this trip, so I'm tempted to cancel it and move on.  The school would be in the running if they weren't so frugal, almost as a matter of policy, with scholarships, and I wasn't so intent on matriculating at the best ranked school which accepted me.  I mean, what's the point?

What would you do?  Trust your instincts?  I can earn another two days worth of income at work.

Has anyone had a similar experience with a trip?  How'd it turn out?  I try to trust my instincts whenever possible.

General Off-Topic Board / Any Thoughts on Chicago, the City?
« on: February 29, 2008, 08:46:44 AM »
I've heard it described as everything from a "dead workers' town" to a thriving metropolis where people are almost as hip as their West/East coast counterparts.  I guess that makes it no different than any other major town, as evidenced by my own vitriolic anti-NYC trolling.

I'll visit soon enough, but I'd like to hear some thoughts from people who live(d) there about what makes Chicago attractive, why it's so cold, and which neighborhoods are nice.  Do you prefer it to NYC?  How do the two cities compare? 

Law School Admissions / I Regret Sending a Preemptive LOCI
« on: February 24, 2008, 06:15:58 PM »

As the days go on, I feel slightly worse about it.  It wasn't as convincing as it could have been, and I made a spelling error in the LOCI, so it might harm me in some way.

Moral of the story: everything in its right place, no fluff.  All of my "Why X" essays were catastrophes, as anyone who read my Why Michigan will tell you.  Either put your maximum effort and brilliance behind it, or don't do it.   

*sighs heavily*

General Off-Topic Board / LSD D-Dubbers Unite!
« on: February 22, 2008, 05:15:40 PM »
Regardless of what anyone says, I'm proud to be a d-dubber, just like troublemaker and possibly Stotan.  You were either here or you weren't, and post counts are precious.

<-- Wishes he could delete threads as well.   :o

General Off-Topic Board / Bored Wally Taking Questions
« on: February 20, 2008, 10:45:31 PM »

I'll sleep on the bus. 

Thanks to a FB poster for the thread's idea:

What do you think your "rep" will be? Will you shoot for cool kid status, or possibly "player" or "man-whore?"  "Guy who studies all the time?"  "Girl who failed contracts because she dropped Jay-Z tracks the night before the exam?"

I think I'll be "easygoing dude who knows how to have a good time."

General Off-Topic Board / I'm Flying Alaska Airlines. Any Experiences?
« on: January 25, 2008, 12:26:15 PM »
Apprently, my tickets to visit a certain school were booked through Alaska Airlines.  I've really never heard of this company, and all I can imagine when someone says Alaska is a polar bear mauling a trash can.

Any thoughts?
