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?

Denials / Re: rejected at yale and stanford

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....

Wachtell. Unfortunately, so does every other prestige whore law student.

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).

Don't count on your major helping you any.

I expect to be added to this list tomorrow.

All I want is enough for a small house, to vacation in when I am away from gigantic mansion. And a car or 12. Perhaps a jet and a helicopter. And enough money to buy my way out of a murder or two.
