Law clerk at a nyc public interest legal services center. Lots of time to have fun in the big city.

Look, the ultimate point is, no matter what the melody for the SSB came from, don't mess with symbols of people's country. Don't mess with their flag, don't mess with their pledge (if they have one), and don't mess with their national anthem. It's just a matter of respect. I hate it when i see things like flag burning (both American and Mexican), and I just don't think that Dominicans or Mexicans, or French people would like it if we started changing the words to their national anthem, even if we did not mean any disrespect.

Since we're talking about LEEWS and PLS generally...

I found that the advice that PLS II gave on exam writing is the best advice you can take. I found that the exams that  I thought that I could ace by just memorizing my outline because I was running out of time (mainly from spending so much time CREATING my outline), I did the worst on. The two classes that I spent more time doing exams over and over were the two that I did the best on. I actually never made a real Crim outline and I did better than the other classes that I did make one for.

So it's exam writing that does the best for me. Good luck.

Actually you should think about it very hard and visit both places. I'm from NYC and i'm stuck in CA right now. I hate CA and I wish I had stayed home. Ther's nothing I could do about it now, for various reasons. So make sure you know what you're getting yourself into. If you know that the LA environment is gonna be rough on you, it could affect how well you do in LS. I mean, the fact that I don't like it here won't make me get Cs or anything, but it does affect you. But you're from the Midwest and neithe school you mentioned is close to home for you, so i guess you'll have to see which one is least un-homelike. good luck in your decision.

Because I can tell one when I see one... and Mr. Leaf is wearing a Boston hat in his picture.

haha, that must be one reason I find him annoying.  Ah well, it's destiNY then.

I'd respond to Leafie, but all he did was play the "I know you are, but what am I?" game.
god damn you are fking lame.

I'm actually quite comfortable in terms of money too, but that doesn't mean I go around making silly comments that have nothing to do with people's questions. It reflects poorly on us people who are quite comfortable in terms of money.

Don't be sorry, we all understand your deficiencies as a person and a lawyer.

womp womp.

Well i'm over here at Santa Clara. I don't mind the idea of working in San Fran or LA, but from what i'v heard this degree travels only so far (which is weird considering that San Fran is like 40 miles away). I want to transfer not because of biglaw, but because nyc is my home and i don't think i'd be happy here. I'm pretty sure i could get into NYLS, Brooklyn, Cordoza, and maybe Fordham (need a bump in grades for this one). I might even try Rutgers Newark, which waitlisted me last year.

I know I would be happy back home, but i'm not sure what career path I want to take. I think i'll be focusing on administrative law dealing with property, land use, etc. or maybe taxation, i like taxes. So, anyway...wish I had a crystal ball.
