vote for 2 final schools for me
« on: August 22, 2006, 11:32:56 AM »
I don't want any "apply to some t14" suggestions.  Please vote on the above schools or suggest another one that I have a reasonable shot at.

My lsn has my stats and other schools. 

EDIT: I see where this may be headed, so I'm NOT interested in BIGLAW.  I do not care that much about prestige or what USNEWS thinks.

Is there any contest?  I picked GW and Vandy.  You have good numbers for both of them, why go lower?

Perhaps the difference between 17 and 27 on a silly rankings scale isn't that important to me.

This is a difficult situation.  You say that you are not interested in biglaw, not interested in prestige, you've chosen primarily schools around the New York area in the past, but now ask a bunch of mostly-anonymous peopleto selct the best Southern/Midwestern schools for you without giving them any indication of what you do[/u] want from your degree.  It'd be easier to vote if you told us what factors actually matter to you.

Sorry. 

No matter where I go, I really think that I will return to New York and work at the kind of firm that doesn't do OCI.  I can get this job coming out of a local school just fine.  I guess I'm looking to use up the extra 2 reports I have and maybe throw some away schools in there that might attract me with a tad more prestige and a nice 3 year vacation.

For what it is worth, I voted for UNC & W&M.

I vote NYU, because that's where the cool kids go.
