Can someone please explain to me why it is such a horrible idea to bid two markets, other than that it makes you look uncommitted to the location? 

It's not.  But if there are a limited number of spots and they base what interviews you get on how highly you rank the firm in your bid list, then you might end up losing out on interview slots to people who focused on one market and prioritized those firms higher than you did.

I'm excited for 2L-- less learning about how to get murderers off the hook and big settlements for big whiners, and more about how to make banks richer and take advantage of the uneducated commoners. Yay.

I saw your FB schedule, ss.  Good work.

I'm looking forward to it because reading cases is a joke now, and preparing for exams will take maybe a long weekend, so I can spend most of my time doing other things.

Any thoughts on White and Case?  Their callback median is basically my GPA.

Not much new here. Just trying to get the new place livable. How about you?

And, windsor.

I gotta run, but I'll be back here tomorrow and we'll chat it up. Why are you so sure about windsor? It seems that only really cool people or giant nerds wear it. I'd like to be the former, but I might be the latter....

In other news, dudes, my EIP bid list makes me want to cry shimmering diamond tears of happiness.  I really hope none of these firms pulls out of interviewing...

Mine is more like:
