For law firms? Probably not. For things that arent law firms. Undoubtedly yes. Univ of Chicago is an all-world degree to people who know what they are talking about


What do you mean 'all-world' degree?

and also why not law firms? according to those NLJ250 rankings or whatever, chicago actually places better than NYU, no?

From my google-fu, it looks like just perception that NYU is better for firm jobs. UChi seem to place better in "top" law firms, but I'd also look at geography. I would imagine if you really want to work in NYC/Northeast, NYU might be a better fit.

There was an interesting debate in this thread - viewtopic.php?f=1&t=103930&start=50
The thrust of it was Chi places as well if not better into NYC than NYU.

What do you mean 'all-world' degree?


By "all-world" I mean that the University of Chicago is one of the most respected schools in the world across many fields. It isnt known to just have a good law school, it is known to have a good everything school (especially at the graduate/professional level... unless you want to argue arts but honestly who cares about that).

If you are referring to the latest NLJ 250 ranking then yes, Chicago is ahead of NYU by a whopping 3% on that chart which translates to a whopping 5 or 6 students. You cant separate schools based on one year snapshot data like that when things are that close. NYU and Chicago place about equal at NLJ 250 firms.

Khaki pants, blue blazer, bow tie, gelled hair, and intellectual glasses = the ultimate rigor outfit

This is pretty much our uniform at UChi, so don't let us down.

Or a hoody and baseball cap, whatever you want.


anyone from this thread that shows up to asw dressed exactly like that, i'll give you 20 bucks

You need to up this. It's not worth it for $20.

The bow tie alone will cost more than that. I mean bright plaid bow ties are hard to come by. The are niche item.

Unless, of course, someone already owns this outfit. And then they don't deserve the twenty bucks.

Goodwill my friends, Goodwill. Except for the pants. I'd recommend http://www.rustyzipper.com. They've got a yellow pair of pants that would probably fit most of you dudes. I would also strongly support someone wearing those navy shorts with crabs on them instead of the pants.

While I love Balderdash/Taboo, my favorite non-board game to play while drunk is probably Jenga. We call it Drinka. I"m going to go ahead and out myself as a humungous nerd, and say I hope there will be some drunk Catan/Dominion/Risk/Diplomacy fans too.

Also, come on Chicago. Send me $ so I can w/draw all my apps. We both know you want to.

Rather than one guy wearing that outfit, I think it would be funnier if every guy from TLS wears it. Then we claim that this is how we regularly dress and in no way was it coordinated. If it gets to 5 or over, I'm in. My bow tie is going to be extra floppy though.

Talk about rigor, there is a kid in the class I am sitting in on playing one of the most rigorous games of tetris I have ever seen :D ...to be fair, the percentage of students taking furious notes is way higher here that at the class I sat in on at Michigan...

Ugh.

Stig, please tell me that all of the students are not taking the exact same notes? That would be serious waste of efficiency.

Wait... Why are you posting on TLS and not taking notes?

This is where you fail.
