good for him, he gave up an almost certain multi million dollar film career to do something he believes in

though of course he could graduate and decide that he wants to go hollywood anyways

case western, you may as well not go to law school and just get a regular job rather than going to those other two

you can find all the rankings on the yahoo group called law school rankings I think, just go to yahoo groups and search for it

Yeah I thought it was idiotic too when I got it. Its not like we're going to be rebuilding historical wood buildings and sharing heroin needles. That stuff should be for undergrads.

Wonder if they allow you to skip it if you claim religious objections.

The above is painfully stupid. 

Now, while Georgetown has a better national name, it is not necessarily a better school for what you want to practice, where you want to practice it.  Spending substantially more money to go there and live in DC when you will probably end up back in California with the same job you would have gotten otherwise doesn't make a lot of sense.  I don't really know much about Hastings' placement in CA, but I don't think either choice will hurt you, and unless you're very concerned with your school having a national brand-name, I don't think G'Town will really help you. 

He wants to practice IP law in southern california. His chances of getting there with a Georgetown JD are far higher than with a Hastings one. The extra couple thousand dollars in tuition will be meaningless considering the higher earnings potential. There's nothing 'painfully stupid' about it.

That $1900 apartment was actualy 1 room in a $3500 3bdroom. So the actual rent wasn't quite so outrageous.

That $850 1 bedroom sounds incredible. I'm sure at least thats not typical.

There is no question here. Even if you want to work in San Francisco. Hastings has a good reputation but you still need to be top 10% for the biglaw jobs. You will be able to get the same jobs going to georgetown with a much much lower class rank. Don't ever assume where you will be in the class.

You went to medical school without knowing about residency? Wow

I believe that notice we got with the signup said they would be sent on the 11 or 12th.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: 171 3.5 where to apply?

What are these 'join the army' people smoking?

Apply to the entire T14 and 1 safety. Make sure you've got good academic recs and a good personal statement. If you want to stay in your area, UVA is an awesome school and will probably be giving you money.
