Might as well throw your vote away. A vote that isn't for McCain is a vote that puts Obama one more step towards the White House.

Not correct.  Jack's vote only matters in a handful of states.  If he lives in a solid blue or solid red state, his vote contributes nothing to the selection of the president.  Unless, of course, a significant portion of his state's voters also choose to vote third party - then, it appears Jack has contributed to the growth of a multi-party system, which seems to be a worthy goal, and not consistent with "throwing one's vote away".

Don't worry too much - I'll be balancing Jack's non-McCain vote with one for the Green candidate (unless it's Nader, and then I'll write in Gore.)

LOL @ Al Gore. You're an idiot.

Law School Admissions / Re: Chances at Yale for average Black girl

Guys at my high school used to be black women with 4.0s from Princeton and 180s all the time. They still got rejected from Yale.

It was no big deal.

175.  Docked for wordiness.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: UMich vs. UCLA

I'm being "insistant" because you're a liar.  Forgive me if I don't believe you after you conveniently "forgot" about Cornell, and even Georgetown as you admit. 

Your "point" is that the top firms care about small differences in prestige, i.e. that between UMich and UCLA.  When your firm interviews at GULC (and GW) level schools this argument is undermined.



And you're an idiot. The prestige difference between UCLA and Michigan is not small.

You're an idiot and you miss the point.  How surprising.  Your "argument" was that a difference in ranking of about 10 points is enough to effect one's employment prospects.  This is presumably why you mentioned your firm (though we all know you were just attempting to brag).  Your self-styled "top firm" recruits at schools around and below UCLA's level, hence your argument is undermined. 

It's no secret that people with Michigan degrees have better employment prospects than people with UCLA degrees. I never said my firm was a top firm. And I never said it was representative. 

I thought you quit.  If you don't work there anymore, it's not 'your firm.'  HTH

You see that Rambis is up for the Suns job?

I'm going to need a new alias.

I think you're safe - he's a longshot.

You're an idiot.  This person has been unable to get into ANY law school for two years because his LSAT was so bad.  WTF are you talking about the t14 for?

you'll get in everywhere you apply!

Nice.  I saw a link to this on XO and figured I had to come say something.

A 2.75 GPA will only disqualify you from 5 or 6 schools. A high LSAT will make you competitive almost anywhere, including several T14 schools. Just focus on getting your score up and apply accordingly.

You're an idtiot.  This person has been unable to get into ANY law school for two years because his LSAT was so bad.  WTF are you talking about the t14 for?

I have a friend who's a PA at Kirkland, and he said that the job wasn't hard to obtain.  Then again, he graduated summa from Harvard, with a double PhD. in Econ and Physics from MIT.

That's a *&^%-ton of education for not all that much job...

Sounds like a Cornell guy to me.  That cold sure makes people bitter and brittle.

filet o' fish just likes trashing my school for various reasons.  i take it personally and i'm not kidding about that.

I can't tell if that means you're kidding or not (seriously)
