General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: People who went to "low-ranked" and are at the top of their game« on: May 22, 2005, 09:52:50 PM »
you are right in that Case is not a bad school - but many would try to convince you (and me) that if you are not in T3/T10/T14 (its weird how people redefine the "top" schools for their own purpose) or so on, that you would'nt have a chance at a good career.
Anyways here are three more:
Barry Meyer holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Rochester and a J.D. from Case Western Reserve University School of Law – CEO Warner Bros. Entertainment
Mr. Edward Lineen is a graduate of Fordham College and Fordham Law School – General Counsel IBM.
John Chidsey holds a master's of business administration degree in finance and accounting and a Juris Doctorate from Emory University, Atlanta, Georgia, as well as a bachelor's administration degree from Davidson College, Davidson, North Carolina – President Burger King

I am always reading executive bio's and thought I might as well share the info:
Mr. Richard D. Parsons received his undergraduate education at the University of Hawaii and his legal training at Union University's Albany Law School - Head of Time Warner.
Alan Braverman, a native of Boston, received a B.A. degree from Brandeis University in 1969 and subsequently worked for two years as a Vista volunteer in Gary, Indiana. In 1975, he received a J.D. degree summa cum laude from Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, where he was also editor-in-chief of the Law Review - General Counsel Walt Disney Co.
Mr. Nick Calio is a graduate of Ohio Wesleyan University and Case Western Reserve University School of Law - SVP Government Affairs Citigroup
There are a ton of others - I will continue posting as I read them.
Wondering what everyone thought about the job market in Miami - not only firm jobs but also consulting and in-house positions? I know the tourist/entertainment industry is fairly large for the miami area, but what about other business areas? I have only heard bad things about Miami's Career Center, so finding a job will be tough. And not everyone will graduate at the top of the class, so this is a possibility for many.
I personally am interested in i-banking and was planning on getting the MBA as well and Miami seems to be well situated for this business area (see excerpt). I am not looking for a typical firm job. I would be happy to accept an exec/mgt position.
Does anyone have any perspective/personal experiences on this?
Excerpt from a website:
Situated on a 260-acre tropical campus in the community of Coral Gables, the University of Miami School of Business Administration has been called the "Ivy League School of the South." Located at the gateway to Latin America, the University of Miami provides unique educational opportunities in a global community, serving as a major center for Latin American and Caribbean business studies. America's Network ranks Miami as number 5 among the world's top 20 telecom hubs, and as second in the nation, behind New York City, in international banking. Peterson's recently ranked Miami among the top five cities in America for pursuing education. With a diverse educational program and an international community, the University of Miami School of Business provides a unique opportunity to earn an MBA degree. Upon graduation, University of Miami students become a part of the sixth-largest alumni network in the country. The School of Business recently erected a $23 million facility complete with computer access at every seat, a "paperless" library with a full-time librarian, a computer lab exclusive to MBA students, and high-tech classrooms. As a "wireless" campus, the University of Miami provides remote online access.

Are you guys pulling lines from Atell's act? Too bad he doesn't do his insominac anymore...
Linzy628, the program is ranked #1 in FL by the Wall Street Journal. For me, the important factor to consider is the number of large corporations located in the Miami area that would hire JD/MBA grads. I dont know if the "regional firms/companies hire mainly from schools in the region" rule applies to B-school grads as well, but if it does it would be important to know what the market is like in Miami. I personally would like to work in-house at a large corporation rather than at a firm, so I think the MBA would help in that respect.
does anybody have any pictures of the law school buildings and ares around it. I have seen the webcams and some pictures of the campus but no good ones of the law school area. Thanks.
hey jeffgdula, i think the movie from their website will show the law school and the surrounding areas. its been a while since i have seen it, but i am pretty sure they show the areas - just click on the link.
I lived on the coast of North Carolina for 8 years so hurricanes don't bother me. My only concern is where I am going to go if one hits. I plan on living at the beach... does anybody know about shelters. I hope to have made a few friends by the time one hits but I currently know zero people in Miami. Any info on shelters would be helpful (preferably one not too ghetto).
billthethrill, i am in the same boat as well. my closest relative lives in atlanta. i would imagine that miami students have shelthers that they can go to.
