It's using eminent domain to evict tenants and businesses so COLUMBIA can build on that land! (PS- I just got a really nice booklet in my box about PI at CLS. Have you read it? That should also help combat the CLS = Corporate, NYU = PI stereotype for cross-admits)

I deleted out of this thread a while ago. Here are some updated classics. By which I mean ramblings which should be discounted:Penn and Cornell:1) You're only in the T14 because you're an Ivy and USNews has decided to play along. People correctly assume that you game the rankings more than others.2) People continually are forced to refer to generic notions of atmosphere and culture in order to not feel bad about turning down money at a school that would have disappointed their parents.3) People think there's a difference between these schools. Specifically, people at Penn.Northwestern:1) People think you're in Evanston. Evanston sucks.2) You're associated with the people who go to Northwestern undergrad.3) Over half of the nontrads students with work experience that forms that backbone of all of your stats are ultimately those who are seeking a raise, not those with any particular interest in law, making you a b-school backup for those who were pleasantly surprised by their LSAT score.Virginia, Duke:1) I never learned anything about you because you're too far in the South.2) I stand by this decision.3) Duke sucks. UVA, I ain't got no quarrel with you. Stanford:1) The only people who would choose to live in Palo Alto over Berkeley are the ones there now and you're stuck with them.2) I love you and you love me and life is good as long as everyone is white and well off and we don't have to worry about dealing with the real world if we avoid working in it before law school or paying for it while we're here.3) It's so obvious to everyone that you're at the right school for you that you can't understand why anyone would ever choose otherwise and you pity those who did. It's unclear to you why this is a problem. You're thinking of getting into est.Harvard: 1) You've sold your soul to the devil and yet you constantly remind everyone that you're not a sellout and that Harvard is not what they think and that you're not going to end up like they always knew you would.2) So it turns out that the reason you didn't get laid in undergrad wasn't that you couldn't drop the H-bomb after all.3) There is so much free booze that you post stupid sh*t like this to LSD.
I'll have a stab at it:Yale:1.) When you try to pick up girls at the bar by dropping the Yale name, you need to then explain why you go to Yale and not Harvard ("Seriously, Yale is better than Harvard, just look at this rankings list I keep in my pocket for moments like this")2.) New Hellhole Haven3.) When you realize you don't want to go into academia and find out that Harvard's alumni dominate all other areas of the law.Stanford:1.) The west coast affirmative action admit of the T32.) All the money you pay to live in Palo Alto, only to see that everything closes by 113.) Your former dean couldn't pass the bar. Can you?Harvard:1.) The law school of the greatest university in the world is ranked third...2.) By telling people you go to Harvard they automatically assume you're a d0uche and start treating you like one3.) If you're not a d0uche yet, being at Harvard will make you oneColumbia:1.) You keep losing faculty to NYU2.) Public interest law at CLS means learning how to use eminent domain laws to knock down housing projects and public parks so that the new Walmart can be built on that land, all in the "public interest"3.) Having to always mention you're a Hamilton scholar in order to prove to people you could have gone to Harvard, Stanford, or Yale but didn't feel like it, a line which may work with law firms in New York but doesn't work quite as well with that cute chick who has moved onto the HLS grad since speaking with your pathetic assUsual disclaimer, just being facetious. If they can't take a joke, f!ck 'em.
it's f-em...if they can't take a joke but i guess either way will work
my way's common in the military...one of my favorites
