It is really quite simple.  At the too soon to tell moment we have fragmentation.  This election will come down to who garners the most enthusiasm and like howard dean and Barack Obama right now only sanders is lighting any fires.  Contrasting and most interesting is the lack of enthusiasm on Clintons side.  As an independent  I can tell you  I don't like the Bush/Clinton option.  Clintons ethics are damaging and Bush's connection to iraq is problematic.  Don't know how other independents feel but the "inevitability" moniker creates a sour choice to most of the independents I know.

Ask yourself this? If both pubs and dems are divided down the middle do you really think enthusiasm will be there for two families that have been creeping around the wings of the Oval Office since the 90's???

Also, I think the pulse of the electorate is still charging toward something newer and different--we have obama to thank for that.



Added......donald trump is the enthusiasm candidate and the momentum has peaked for him today....

So missa Hillary dupes..

Enthusiasm is a biatch for democrats this year.

Too bad he's behind in Michigan, Florida, and Pennsylvania.

No Cinnamon, this race will be called pretty early. He'll lose Florida. Not by much, but he'll lose it. After that, he's done. He'd have to pull off an upset in Michigan and Pennsylvania, something like that. Not gonna happen.

Just curious, what will you do when HRC becomes POTUS? I'm not exactly happy about it myself, but what will your narrative be then? Let me guess, it was rigged?

I am excited for the day after tomorrow.

Because I assume that Cinnamon Julie Troll will be back on her meds.

Hint: (since I already predict a lack of digestion on this very simple concept)

If you were to IVY for undergrad, you are most likely to STAY in IVY after that (even if you have to bounce to other T1 schools, its still WAY easier to get in with an IVY undergrad-it just is, it just is)

I know I shouldn't engage, since despite your frequent name changes, you still evince a complete inability to stay focused on the issue. But here goes-

Two things-

1. The OP was asking about college majors. This has nothing to do with that.

2. Correlation is not causation. Law schools do not care where you went to undergraduate. Certain schools (Ivies, for example) are able to attract "better" (as in, more likely to do well on standardized test, for example) applicants. Therefore, when these same undergrads take the LSAT, they are (all things being equal), more likely to do well than a similarly situated person from State U., even assuming no difference in education during the undergraduate period.

It's another example of the Big Fish/Small Pond v. Small Fish/Big Pond scenario. There's no law school that's says, OMG, look at this Harvard UG- we have to accept him despite his 150 LSAT!

That said, there are a (very) few anecdotal examples of a small preference being accorded for certain cases- see, e.g., a triple eagle (BC High School, UG, Law School applicant). And going to Harvard (or another Ivy) may give you collateral benefits (networking, the ability to say, "I went to a school in Boston ... oh, which one? So glad you asked.").

I'm just watching Michagan.

If trump wins Michagan...it's over with 275 electoral votes.

North Carolina would be icing on the cake.

FBI pop pop pop.

yeah, you read only about half of what I wrote since you already knew what you wanted to post before you began..........


Lets use YOUR logic. If you think the JD matters but not the undergrad, then the undergrad matters.
Since it WILL effect what odds you have as to what JD you get into.

See how that works?

@#!* it go to cooley, apparently no one cares about anything anymore

Not the point at all. Your law school matters greatly, as does your relative rank within the law school and what you did at the law school (law review/journals, moot court, trial team, research assistant, book awards, summer gigs etc.). This will help you get your first job and will follow you for a period of time (until you have some real experience, a book of business, etc.).

That's the thing- for law jobs, it's the law school (and performance therein) that matters. Not the undergraduate performance or degree. The undergrad performance only matters to get into the good law school. In a certain way, that performance is "baked in" to the law school.
