Evidence? Otherwise, you're just making stuff up.

I dont mean to be cynical toward you hillary clinton supporters but Bernie Sanders did very well in New York --he bested Barack Obama's showing and he is poised to take California...
Bernie is stocking up on delegates as well.

Plus, I can't wait to hear the news after the FBI bring her associates and then herself for questioning...er for her FBI "review".

Just wanted to remind folks about that primary.

Bernie should come within 8 points behind clinton in New York----effectively keeping his momentum strong and she still wont have enough pledged delegates to beat him.

Except that she won by 15 points.

Poised to win in CA? Where are you getting that? Every single poll shows her winning by 6-14 points.

No, it's over for Sanders. He can't accumulate enough delegates at this point. He would have to win every single remaining primary by close to 100% to even have a chance. Not gonna happen. And this isn't just my opinion, it's math.

More interesting is California where Bernie is poised to WIN.  That will be his ticket to go all the way to the convention.

So sad that this is happening to her again....back in 08 she was unable to go all the way...but Bernie WILL.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Brooklyn vs. Rutgers Newark

(As for me- I'd go with the money; Brooklyn doesn't offer enough advantage, and, TBH, I don't think your career plans are likely well-formed enough yet -"public interest of government work"- for you to pass that money up. Because if you're not going into a remunerative field, student debt can be a heckuva thing.)

Agreed.

I don't think the slight variations in reputation or geography are enough to justify an increased debt load. Both schools have very similar reputations, are located in roughly the same metro area, and will offer almost identical educations. The post-grad employment prospects (which you should look at, BTW) are also pretty similar.

I'd be inclined to take the cheapest degree.

Law School Admissions / Dean's Certification

Hi, I was wondering if anyone knows whether or not Belmont Law requires a Dean's Certification form prior to matriculation.  Thanks for any and all help!

That said, for whatever reason, it does have a pretty good rep from those in the know, and it places very well outside of MO. It's kind of like Emory in that way - I never really think about it, but it's a very good law school that places well.

WUSL definitely has a good rep, and it's perennial place on USNWR's list probably imparts at least some degree of name recognition even if it's just "Oh yeah, I've heard of Wash U."

I guess what I mean (and admittedly my opinion is based on ambiguous stuff) is that Wash U isn't exactly what I'd call a nationally prestigious school. Good? Yes. Prestigious? Meh.

I'm sure that Wash U has a great rep in the Midwest, but outside of that region are doors being opened by a strong alumni network or by the school's inherent reputation? I really don't know. I suppose a CA equivalent would be UCLA/USC. Great local reps, but probably not going to land you a gig on Wall St. 

Other schools that are fairly close in rank (Cornell, Georgetown) have a certain panache that the Wash Us, Emorys, and Bostons of the world do not. Such is the ephemeral nature of rankings and prestige.

I think we are on the same page.

I might quibble, a little, regarding GULC. GULC is an example of a school whose name in USNWR and with laypeople is > than in actuality, but maybe that's just me (I cut it off at Cornell).

But yeah, WUSL is definitely with the Emor(ies) and UCLAs and BUs of the world. In terms of reputation. A solid, good school, but not (strictly speaking) a "national" one.
