Damn I wish I got here earlier.

:D :D :D <3

I thought one of your alts were. Like I said, no idea what's going on in here.

Anyways, I think you're arguing a moot point since the heart of this entire thing whether choosing MVP over CCN is a good idea.

We got pigeon-holed into this discussion because you suggested that Chicago was the clear choice for COA clerkships without any substantiating evidence apart from a USNews "4-6 ranking" and "age-old prestige". While Chicago may have an advantage in other areas, I don't dispute that. Rather, I responded specifically to statements like these:
glewz wrote:. Also, in the long run, chances of high level clerking are better for Chi. Chi is consistently ranks 4-6 and is still on a different class level compared to penn.

glewz wrote:Chi LT is > for academia And for higher level clerking (SCOTUS / CoA).

glewz wrote:Though if all else were equal and my goals were CoA, I'd choose Chi

Does that make sense?

glewz wrote:As a side note, I don't find it unreasonable to put SCOTUS into the equation, if you're looking at clerkships as a whole.

Already conceded, but if you want to run with the argument that Chicago is better for AIII clerkships because of superior SCOTUS placement, knock yourself out.



Wow you take life too seriously...Are you mad that you didn't get CCN or something? It's not a big deal...I'm putting out my personal preference dude.

And I still stand by my comments. Your responses were directed entirely at CoA, while I was referring to "higher level clerking." Those are two different matters; for all your (incredibly anal) close reading & quoting, you seem to have missed that distinction entirely.

On your last point, I'm not arguing that Chi is better for AIII BECAUSE of better SCOTUS placement. I do, however, think that from an applicant's perspective, the difference is not very meaningful. If the applicant were shooting to clerk, he/she would be aiming for a school's top %, and if I were that applicant with that kind of confidence, why wouldn't I put SCOTUS into the equation?

ALL of my comments are in line with ^ reasoning. Go cross check my comments like I know you will. I wouldn't be surprised if you had an Excel/Word doc with my username as its title. Goodness.

I don't think we should derail this thread away from its original purpose of giving attention to OP.

Resume custody battle.

Really? Because I think I just decided on Penn....

Until someone tells you Chicago is better.

Edit: Chicago is better than Penn. In every way. Including AIII placement. And obviously SCOTUS placement.
