Who was butthurt? I'm trolling this thread because you're allowed to troll a thread that started off with a ridiculous OP. It's in the Constitution or something.

I don't give any more of a shit about CLS than I'm legally obliged to. And I imagine sinfiery doesn't care either.

As I said ITT, the best of CCN will be determined three years from now, by a 24-year-old girl in a club who's been carrying her heels all over the dance floor for the past hour, dropped out of school after three semesters of a comm degree, puked in her purse a half-hour earlier, and thinks I'm Ryan Reynolds because I have the same haircut as him.

As a woman, I look forward to comparing with my other high-powered lady friends how effective at repelling men we are just by namedropping our respective graduate/professional schools. I look forward to those (very special) olympics.

Also: three years from now, said 24 year old girl will still be a year older than you.

Fuck you people for keeping this at the top of my "View Your Post" page for no good reason.

There aren't enough eyeroll and handjob motion gifs in the world to do justice to the amount of idiotic circle-jerkery in this thread.

In coping with that shame, it's going to be hilarious explaining to a judge why I'm a 23-year-old with a fake ID that says I'm 26.

Although really, said 24 year old girl will probably not even be able to count to 24 at that point. I'm just going to tell her I went to Goldman Sachs Ferrari Kate Middleton Medical School, on the theory that her brain is just hearing words at that point and not connecting them to form coherent thoughts or stopping to realize that it made absolutely no sense.

Also, I think I'm going to flame the entirety of 1L by referring to "HYSC" and "CNMVPBDNCGCooley."

I'm just going to assume based on this too-drunk-to-consent club girl fantasy that you're an overachieving virgin

It's ok, we were all virgins once and not all of us were overachievers

Hey, nerds can pick up girls too. Mainly other nerd girls, but my point stands.

I was just thinking it might be easier to lie about my education rather than lie about my entire personality, which is my current standard for establishing any form of human contact. But if I can't impress vapid and boring women with DAT IVY DEGREE THO, then I don't really see any point in going to law school at all.

I don't think there's any chance NYU's median drops for the second consecutive year. If they were at risk for that, they'd be opening up the scholarship war chest this cycle.

Congrats on CLS, by the way. I'm very glad to hear that you won't be an insufferable UVA homer after all. :lol:

Yeah, I called NYU's median dropping something along the lines of "almost a coin flip", but upon thinking about it, it's probably pretty unlikely. Even if they didn't have the $$$ to shell out, they'd drop class size slightly or start gaming the LSAT median.

It's probably as likely as UVA or Penn's median dropping, which is to say it's possible, but I doubt it happens. I do think there's a better than 50-50 chance NU's median drops, though.

sinfiery wrote:I enjoy how you compared.the results in absolute.terms.to.favor your side of the argument but used specific percentages to differentiate the miniscule difference NYU holds as an advantage in one elite firm. Having looked at the data myself but far too lazy to look up specific numbers again on my phone, I know the miniscule difference works both ways. Ie, the firms where there are more CLS grads is also by miniscule percentages.


Now, let us examine the historical biglaw percentages from these schools. We know that CLS outpaces just about everyone but Penn in placement. Including NYU, sometimes by a wide margin. So if we account for the self selection of PI kids (which, let's face it, NYUs UG screams, their institutional support is widely acclaimed, AND they have famous PI alumni funding PI specific scholarships that are awarded more for PI softs than numbers versus CLS having....I'm ignorant. Fill me in if you can help me out) you see that the average quality of the firm for CLS kids wanting biglaw is actually quite less than that of NYU.

Also, CLS class has a much larger transfer class. And we all know transfer kids have great grades, which sort of hides the placement inefficiency of CLS 1Ls because the percentages are inflated on who receives.biglaw jobs as most transfer kids with their 4.333s are likely getting said jobs with that CLS institutional support plus amazing grades.


So, CLS best start attracting better professors by shilling out 6m condos or maybe try moving their school out 150th st or something


/t6 for life :D


Damn, you wrote a post that long on your phone? What kind of phone?
