I don't think it's a top 10 school, but Pepperdine in Malibu is very conservative and very laid back as only a "surfer school" can be.  Nevertheless, I think they have a decent reputation and you will enjoy the conservative environment (not to mention the beach - take a look at their web site for incredible views!).  Plus they have a great entertainment law department if you want to work in movies or TV.

Wow things have changed since I got out - firms were tripping all over themselves to hire summer associates after their first year - wine & dine, box seats at games, concert tickets, 3-hour lunches on the firm at the best places in town, $30/hr. (a lot of money then) - best time of my life!  Sorry it's so bleak these days, you're really missing out on a great experience.

Better to join local bar organizations or business networking groups as a student and encourage your classmates to do the same.  It will save you a lot of headaches that will be involved with a floundering start-up organization, and you'll make better connections in the real world instead of just commiserating among yourselves.  You'll enjoy it much more.

Buffalo is a solid school.  It is not Cornell or Stanford, but if you do well there, you can have a pretty good career in almost any field.  If you find a UB alum at a firm in which you're interested, send them an e-mail and start a relationship.  They'll have invaluable advice and will be a great contact later when you are looking for work.  Most alumni will bend over backward to help you.

I think the bar examiners have better things to do with their time.

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: Student/Faculty boundaries

It is prohibited almost everywhere by most Codes of Conduct for both students and faculty.  Students can be expelled and faculty can be fired.  They usually decide it's not worth the risk.

Law School Applications / Re: Pre-Law New Years Resolutions

I didn't do any of the things suggested in the resolutions (nor did my classmates) and I did well in school and in my career.  Just do the work, there's not much more to it than that.
