I've heard of fellows being a professor's research assistants

What a nice grandfather to call a professor...

i know what you mean. i am in a tier 1 school, yet it is just not as good as other schools in tx. i "wont get a job" just cause im not in the higher ranked tier 1 school. people always look down upon other schools because they want to feel good about their school even if they hate it. its bs, but its life. we all have to deal, i have. it took awhile, i was really ticked off for awhile about people dissing my school because it "focuses on black letter law too much". but whatever, im gonna get a job, im gonna love it, and they can all kiss my, well you know...

Just wondering, what school are you referring to? Because Texas only has one tier 1 school....

Who pays a deposit to a school without seeing the financial aide award letter? Just wondering.....

I took rank over money because in the long run it's going to be better careerwise. I had 9 full tuition scholarships at tier 3 and 4 schools, but chose to go to my state school (U of Arizona) with a smaller scholarship because it's going to be to my advantage when it comes time to get a job in Phoenix

Hey guys thanks for your info.  I think I'm going to ask both of them to write PSs just for the hell of it.  I guess it can't hurt to see what each write.  Although i'm 99% sure that I'll be using my DC bosses.

Usually, you don't see what they wrote though

Why do you need examples?

Last time you were here, you posted the same thing but never came back to answer the questions :)

Here's how it is at Arizona:

Graduation with Honors

The faculty has adopted the following standards for graduating with Honors:

(1) Summa Cum Laude Top 7% of the class

(2) Magna Cum Laude Next 7% of the class

(3) Cum Laude Next 11% of the class

No more than 25% of the class may graduate with Honors; there may be fewer in the event of ties.

Don't do the suit thing. It's not an interview. I think jeans or khaki's are best for the first day
