Where should I go next fall? / Re: Any suggestions on peaceful law schools ?

it is a huge detriment to any law student looking for a job not to have a class rank.

Employers can figure it out pretty quick even without a rank. GULC does not "rank", but the honors cutoffs for top 10%/33% are publicly available. If top 1/3 = 3.4,

Yea for B+ cruves. That's top 10% at my school.  :o

That's intense. She did have a much better six pack than me though...

Should I feel bad for laughing because, not only does she have hidden testes, but "semen" in her name?

Not as bad as you would feel if you laughed and said that in front of her and she got pissed enough to try and beat you up.  The way she is built she certainly could kick my arse.


and you could not run away from her either, she's faster than any man not form Kenya

That beating would be richly earned. Of course I would stick around and take it.

Kick her in the balls then run and get as much of a head start as you can

That would probably be a very deep kick to the abdomen, so I doubt it would work. Besides, I'm a big fan of taking responsibility for making really stupid decisions. The beating would be deserved.

Would you lay there and take it, try to defend yourself, or try and tap out by screaming 'uncle' (the magic 'I've had enough' code word that used to work in grade school to stop getting beaten on)?



Oh no, I wouldn't just lay there! I'd approach it like I would getting jumped into a gang: get a couple shots in to save some dignity, then take whatever comes.

well you would have to be forver that guy who got his ass kicked by ahermpodite

General Board / Re: how difficult is it to lateral transfer as an associate?
« on: September 11, 2009, 04:37:49 PM »
which would you hire lateral w/ biz or lateral w/o biz, everything else being the same?

probably the former, obviously, but that's a strawman.  which would you hire, an associate that required sleep and bathroom breaks or an associate that required neither sleep nor bathroom breaks, everything else being the same?

please note: i'm not saying this is true across the board.  i'm just saying that at the "V10" firms, i don't think that there's an expectation that mid-level associates will bring business with them when they lateral.  useful contacts at potential clients maybe, but that's probably the outer limit.

I think in this economy you need more than just five years experince. As for who i would hire, I'm old school depends on what she looks like ina dress bending over picking up a pencil, no pants suits, won't even get past a screening interview

LOl, I would assume, or hope one would get at least one pay raise in 30 years. besides isn't there a thing now where after you pay for 25 years the fed drops the rest you owe?

i didn't realize that was a thing on TLS.

You took out of conext, no TLS in what you quoted, so you got an out of context response.

My point, then wny hire a 5th year from the outside with nothing to offer you don't already have?

one more associate who shows the ability to perform at a high level at the time of the lateral and the potential to bring in business in the long run.

just because you have some already doesn't mean that you don't want more.

or maybe you can't keep the ones you have

either way, it doesn't necessarily mean the lateral has to bring business with them.

which would you hire lateral w/ biz or lateral w/o biz, everything else being the same?

This would be much more useful if they published mean, median, and modal salaries. The means are often skewed by the upper-end outliers. If 9/10 people surveyed make 50k, and 1/10 makes $1M that puts the mean at 125k (I wager this is especially likely to be the case in the PI field).

Also, since this was a survey, it is more likely that the more successful types will respond. Therefore, a response-rate number would be useful.

In the survey hthey have 25% and 75% but too many nubers to post. Resposne rate in somewhere in the survey.
