This should scare the sh*t out of everyone.  And if you are not concerned about this, can you please explain why?  Thanks.

I would like to believe that this is a signal that he simply does not believe the government should not be involved. But, I know this is not the case. He simply wants the money to fund different government programs.

You might want to look at the Vault or AmLaw 100 to find some top firms to look at.

I am currently searching for a quality of life survey that it put out regularly. I will post a link when I find it. All I remember off hand is that Wachtell reports one of the highest average hours per week (about 70) and also the highest job satisfaction.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: USNWR median salary figures

What firm pays 160k pre-bonus? Even Wachtell only pays 140k. Penn's numbers must include bonus, which is USNW does not.

I think they're fudging their numbers.  Penn posts their 75th percentile at 160k on their website.

After four years of rugby, which is notorious for fighting, I am confident enough in my large group fighting ability to support this policy.

We could just get together and have a big brawl to decide who is truly worthy, and send the results to HLS. 

I support this policy fully.  Clearly, when deciding between law school applicants, adcomms should take our ass-kicking skills into account.

Depending on how you look at it, I could be a 50/50 shot (I put my odds at 25%) and I expect my rejecting to roll in sometime next week.

Law School Rankings / Re: Predict the upcoming USNWR T14 rankings!
« on: February 18, 2005, 08:31:35 AM »
That data is on admitted students and I believe US News uses marticulating (I could be wrong).

I've looked around at all of the class profiles I could find for the T14.  Assuming that the non-admissions-related stats don't change much (which they shouldn't), the new rankings will probably look something like this:

1. Yale
2. Harvard
3. Stanford
4. Columbia
5. NYU (losing some ground to Columbia)
6. Chicago
7. Penn (Could possibly tie Chi for 6)
8. UVA
9. Michigan
10. Boalt
10. Duke
10. NU (could drop to 12)
13. Cornnell
14. GULC

Boalt's LSAT median may be 169 this year, up from 167 (see http://www.law.berkeley.edu/prospectives/admissions/jddegree/faq.html#Q4: they say that their median LSAT has ranged from 167-169 over the past few years, and it was not 169 before this year, so...)

Law School Applications / Re: Big Harvard envelope ...

female dog female dog, moan moan.

Um, I didn't mean "female dog," but you get the point.

Turn off your language filter and you will see it as you typed it.
Also, that Harvard envalope was mean. Luckily, I had a heads up.
