You wouldn't make it in Texas, Walls.

We have a girl in our class who wants to do energy work and has the consulting background for it.  She's from a nearby state (think OK, CA, NV), and Texas firms still dinged her on the basis of no Texas roots.  One associate took her aside and told her to try to marry a Texan, or find a Texan boyfriend, or find a family connection.

I don't understand why they would be so insular.

Someone I know who does recruiting for a large Dallas based firm explained it this way: "We love T-14s, but they probably aren't going to get an offer without a Texas connection." Most of their hires are top 25% UT.

If by "probably," they mean "stay the @#!* out of Texas, carpetbagger," then it sounds about right.

i wish i had gotten into yale.  grades suck.

Right.  I just got hit with 3 credits below the curve from our bull legal principles class.

You had one of these as well?  My low grade was in a bull legal philosophy class.

And I just find that blog really . . . grating, I guess is the word. 


So I guess it would be an inappropriate time to say this?

Wouldn't that not apply here?

Anyway, it's not that I'm offended.  I thought it was funny for like, a week.  But now I feel like people try to use that almost list to delegitimize liking stuff (not that you're doing that), which is just sort of stupid and irritating since the whole thing was a joke to begin with.

Here's hoping.  It's 11:43 and I'm still plugging away at an early outline.

Are you back home?  I didn't realize your state had T4 schools except for maybe . . . but it's not that, is it?

Please update.

Also would welcome any other distractions that might serve as alternatives to researching this brief.

You're already doing briefs at your school?  We're still on memos.  I'm writing a boring memo on an obscure Illinois privacy tort.
