Anywhere he wants. He isn't looking for biglaw and already has boatloads of cash.

Going out on a limb here and saying that he applies to U. of Richmond. Total shot in the dark though...

Don't ever count Ben Wallace out. He went from an undrafted, unknown rookie to one of the best interior defenders/rebounders of the last 15 years.

Probably Cooley.

He has spent much of his time in Michigan so he wouldn't need to relocate, and from hearing him speak during a few post-game interviews and on PTI, he doesn't sound like he would make the brightest incoming 1L.

Not to mention the fact that he shouldn't care about the "prestige" of the institution he attends because everyone will already know who he is.

woahh this was completely uncalled for and is incredibly offensive. Are you really so ignorant that you don't realize the connotations of saying that you're kids will "one day buy and sell [my] kids" because me and my son are black? Do you really have any sense of the history of slavery in this nation? You are seriously a terrible person and it disgusts me that our country still has racists like you

Lol...he/she pulled the racist card. I have no idea, nor do I care, what race you are. If you don't like my rebuttals, than try not to throw insults around :).

oh racism didn't motivate your post? you just happened to invoke a response involving slavery to one of the few black people on the forum? I hope that admissions committees and the state BAR organizations find your posts so that they can ban you from the profession like the bigot you are

You have serious issues, and I highly recommend you seek help. That alone should be enough to disqualify you from any law school, accredited or not. Like I said before: I neither know, nor care, what race you are. Go play your racist card somewhere else because it's not going to fly here.

wow can you become any more terrible of a person? now I should be disqualified from EVERY law school because I'm black? you're even worse than "separate but equal". enjoy your white privilege while you can because you're racist ways will be revealed and you will live a sad lonely life

So much loss in this thread already. Kind of like the Pistons.

There's a former NBA'er at Stanford Business, maybe we'll see Ben come out this way as well.

Yeah...serioussssss issues. You're talking about "white privilege" when URM status automatically boosts your LSAT/GPA numbers. The only one that comes close to being a "racist" here is you.

I'm black and didn't immediately think of racism. That said, it's generally not a good idea to talk about buying and selling people... too soon... :wink:

In today's American English vernacular, the expression "buy and sell you" refers to financial superiority, not literally buying and selling people. Capitalaq, or whatever her/his name is, is wildly misinterpreting what was written.

oh so people can be racist and offensive if they say "lol"? That girl is a disgrace to this country and would be a disgrace to the legal profession if she actually had a remote chance of entering it.

You really need to relax...no one was being racist, so stop throwing around pointless insults.
