how many buroughs there are in NYC

Hey now!  I always forget that one...5 or 7?  Don't ask me to name them.


(OK, I probably can now, but I couldn't 2 years ago...Manhattan, Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn, Staten Island?  So I guess there are 5?)

yeah, I should have prefaced by saying the person in question was born and raised NY.
"A lawyer's either a social engineer or a parasite on society. A social engineer is a highly skilled...lawyer who understands the Constitution of the U.S. and knows how to explore its uses in the solving of problems of local communities and in bettering [our] conditions."

I once knew a girl who was so wrapped up in elitism and rankings she got into NYU, Columbia, Stanford and Harvard, but got dinged at Yale and based on that 1 ding decided not to go to law school at all.

No, I'm not kidding.

She didn't really want to be a lawyer

It's only fair that people also read this article. It's two years old, but as relevant as ever...especially since nothing has been done to fix the problem.
