Probably not lol, it's not a good enough MBA program for big4 accountants to move here for.

Actually, seriously, I have some really really good ideas that can work in the legal industry. So let's keep in touch.


ahh, hum not to jump into this partnership like an opportunist

:ok, exactly to jump in on this partnership as an opportunist:

but I have considered outsourcing doc review to a place like Panama, where I have many contacts, because there is quality labor and assignments could be handled in real time. India is great for overnight assignments, but not as good for day assignments.

plus I'm always down for opening another business or two, so count interested if ya want.


Well... right now I don't understand how the timing works. People in India will work US daylight hours. But sometimes people in South America are more reliable. It might depend on the technology involved...

I have background in AI/automation so maybe we should just work on making a cloud service that does doc review with minimal human supervision? :mrgreen:

Well, figure out where you're going to school and let me know. I'll be at NYU, putting money down tomorrow. And I'll be on here, acting like a moron as usual.

....

And friends? That is what we call... networking.

TBF, I don't think they did much. But now with no kids at home and a successful small business I think they party harder than I do.

Well, I am not going to be at NYU since they don't want me :) Looks a lot like Penn for me, barring some unexpected turn of events.

so generally the only thing that qualifies as a good soft is like curing cancer or something??

Curing cancer or something like that are probably the only softs that will overcome a lacking LSAT score and GPA.

Other less earth-shattering softs can make an impact if you're a borderline applicant.

An example of softs of the latter kind:

Based on numbers alone, LSP rates this candidate a "deny" at Berkeley. Almost every non-URM with a similar GPA was rejected - even those with significantly higher LSATs.
