actually he went to harvard law


+1!

I read a criticism of the law rankings arguing, in one word or another, that "if Princeton had a law school, it would be ranked in the top-10 just by virtue of it being Princeton". It mentioned that "Uncle Phil attended the fictitious "Princeton Law". The show never propagates that...Princeton, which is Phillip's UG, is where he wants Carlton to go right after high school.

He did go to Harvard Law.

It's curious to me that she says where she went to high school and where she got her LLM but leaves out where she went to law school on her own website. http://www.michelebachmann.com/about.php

Wikipedia says she went to Oral Roberts though..http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michele_Ba ... Early_life

edit: doing some research shows why. She is rightfully embarrassed of the school. It was a law school founded by a televangelist that closed after being in operation for less than a decade

This is the kind of thing I would expect her to be proud of.

I cannot BELIEVE Feiger went to MSU. That blows my mind. Even though this is TLS, it goes to show that lay prestige will only take some people so far and hard work pays off for some.

+1 to anyone who gets this one...Mitch McDeere, Harvard law (*hint AHEM top 5, not top 5%).

jesus christ you can't be serious. Even those admitted to Yale can be complete retards... here's a story about this one time he was hanging out in college and he and his friends decided to perform an exorcism (the article he wrote on it follows a brief lead-in. I have no idea how credible this specific source is, but the shit is corroborated everywhere on the internet):

http://blogs.cbn.com/thebrodyfile/archive/2009/02/24/bobby-jindals-story-about-demons-and-spiritual-warfare.aspx

cliff notes version: some chick made sexual advances on him and he discovered it was because a demon was possessing her, and he exorcised the demon.

I really hate Bobby Jindal.

oh I understand. I just wanted to make the point that getting in to Yale Law does not necessarily imply that someone is a genious. I also know someone that got in to Yale and turned it down for a full ride at ND... what an idiot.
