haha, well, it wasn't easy, that's for sure...but i don't think it something that should have been easy...there were just a bunch of sub-issues that i thought would play a role and it was hard to narrow down exactly the issues/elements that were the most important...

if it makes you feel better, your work was great...mine was pure crap

93

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: USD + 20,000.00/yr or Loyola?
« on: May 29, 2007, 04:18:06 PM »
$20k a year at usd v - at loyola? usd no doubt. if loyola matches it or makes your cost of attending similar, then it depends where you want to practice. it's "harder" to get a job in la coming from usd and harder to get a job in sd coming from loyola, but it's certainly not hard enough to make up what is potentially $60k. being perfectly honest (and i know i appear biased), $60k is enough of a difference for me to not go to hastings over usd (even $30k)...ucla, yes, i'd take ucla over the money at usd...the other schools, no way...it's really a misperception that going to usd makes it impossible to get a job in la or that going to loyola makes it impossible to get a job in sd...between hastings and loyola at $30k cheaper, i'd take loyola...hastings is ranked better, but it doesn't magically make you guaranteed a job in any market...the only real difference rank makes is in big law, and between all these schools, you pretty much have to place at the top of the class (yes, even hastings..i think)

as far as the usd rank drop goes...the only reason that should be of a concern is if your ego cares about #s...in reality, usd rep hasn't changed a bit in the sd or la market...usd's rep has taken a huge hit, but mainly on places like lsd...and i couldn't care less how prestigious a bunch of 0Ls think the school is, what matters is what the employers think and that's not changed in the last 2 months

You are correct. Now that I look back on what I wrote I guess it wasn't necessary. I posted those comments in the middle of the night when I was feeling particularly lucky about getting into USD and for not having to worry about scholarship requirements. Lately my comments have been particularly callous because I've stopped caring about the opinions of others on this site. Several members, including yourself, have gone out of their way to insult me in the past and since the only people who get treated that way are trolls I am considering that route now. If I keep getting comments that insult me then I will make sure to respond in kind. I appreciate the way you've addressed me. I will respond to others in the same way that they respond to me.

Have you ever heard of the saying that it takes a bigger man to walk away? I'm really saying this (and anything else I may say) as advice for an incoming 1L. Honestly, I really don't know if you are like this IRL, but if you are, may I suggest that you learn to bite your tongue once in a while? You don't always need to get the last word and if you insist on doing so, you'll quickly make yourself no friends. Not to attack you personally (though it certainly will sound like it), from what I've seen, the troll is you. I'm glad you recognized the issue with your statement here and can only hope that you'll take this incident and apply it to others.

As I sit here ripping my hair out answering Law Review questions, I find this very funny.
Why is it funny?

as i sit here ripping my hair out reading law review material, i also find this very funny

No, don't rip your hair out.. it's good for you. :)

And if you ask me a stupid question on there, I will hunt you down like Roman's stalker. :)

i think i'm gonna start asking random stupid questions there just for kicks now...e.g. "what is a bluebook and is it really 'blue'?"

God, don't even joke like that.  That sounds like one of the next questions.  "So, this Bluebook thing... um, it wasn't in the packet."

hmm...actually, that's a good point...this bluebook thing i keep hearing about, where can i find it?  :P :D
