sorry, i forgot Big Trouble in Little China
This is on my to see list.

I second Franz remark.

Does anyone care what color the writer/creator of a movie they watched?

Also, I would not want credit for any of the Matrix sequels.

I also got 20k over 5. Honestly, I expected more.

It is definitely not their bread and butter, but it is listed as something they do.
Thanks for the advice I will look into them. Fortunately, I have a year and half to find a firm that suits me.

I wasn't aware that antitrust is one of their strong suits.  The Vault guide has a top 15 for antitrust, and Wachtel isn't in it.  I bet they're OK in creditor's rights, though.  Actually you should look into Arnold and Porter.  According to the Vault, they're number 1 for antitrust (by a LARGE margin of the votes), and they have a reputation for treating their associates very well.  The pay isn't quite as good as Wachtel, supposedly...but they have a very flat partner to associate ratio.

More into Creditors Rights and Antitrust defense (which they also do). But, M&A work would also be very nice.
If I could find another firm that treated associates like they do (worked hard, but generally rewarding) and worked in the same area I would probably be fine with it (inspite of the decreased odds of making partner).

Do you want to do Wachtel because you love M and A or because of the prestige/money?

And, for people that are paralegals at big firms, what can you tell about the associates hours?  Are they that brutal?  Is it like 60 hours a week?  80?

Off to play PS2.  TV you can interact with.
What game?

At least you know. I am still on watch for my Yale rejection.

i'm fine with it, really.  i just don't understand why they had to come on the same day.  and on a day when i've been out celebrating how happy i am all day.  so essentially i was having an awesome day, and i come home at 5:00 and see that i am a reject.  i saw this coming, but i thought (hoped) they would wait a little longer.  really, how am i so bad that despite the numbers they don't want me?  wait, don't answer that, i don't want the answer. 

i am sorry to start a whole silly thread about my inadequacies.  to be honest, i am a bit drunk right now (i had a great day yesterday and today) and totally didn't see this coming.  i mean, i expected to be rejected eventually, but not right away, and not in the same day.  i am going to cry some more....

Congrats. Mind saying where in PA (I am in the middle of nowhere western PA and hoping that I hear tomorrow).

Eh, I just dont care.  I bet there are a few guys who would want to fight me on sight.  ;D
I would, nothing against you. I just love fighting.

If you're stats are significantly greater than 6'0 195 then its probably a no go. 

I guess I better keep these brass knuckles just in case.  ;)

6' 2" 180. Also if it helps, I am in very poor shape (which will suck when rugby practice starts).
