*Does not go to T-14*


Outside of the T14, I'd say that pressure is even higher. Everyone knows that they're gunning for the few jobs available at lower ranked schools.


Was more referring to the "its not hard to get median" comment. Just because everyone eventually ends up at median, doesn't mean it doesn't take a fuckton of work


If you work 40hrs/week like a normal job you're fine. Hitting the curve isn't too hard given that theres usually at least a few people in each section who don't care.
Also, why are you always a prick on the interwebz? UPennstate is a great school, you shouldn't be so self-conscious.

Ah yes, because those 2-3 LSAT points separating the T14 from the T20 are so staggering.

Or are you just trying to compensate for being sub-median at Penn? Trying to tell yourself if you had gone somewhere else, everything would have been okay?


:lol:

Also, Blindmelon got BigLawl. I think I speak for pretty much everyone in saying I'm curious how Veyron does at OCI this summer/fall.

Very true, but all the UG girls who have taken over our library make a pretty unflattering comparison. You can tell they are UGs too because they look happy and well rested.

To be fair I'm sure the girls in our class feel the same way.

If it makes you feel any better UVA has a large contingent of attractive women. However, a lot of them are intense as hell. They're not the sort of chicks you can kick back and relax with.

If you treat them like your long term girlfriend or fiancee. Which to me is a bit much considering the young age of most of these girls. And when you do, they're going to try to attach themselves to you really quickly. A lot of them seem to be looking for husbands. And like I said these are some intense chicks. After you guys finish she'll probably start asking you if you are going to meet the grade on cutoff for Law Review, and what you think about that latest Scalia dissent. But I have to give them credit; I've really been pleasantly surprised with just how attractive many of them are.

Honestly, many of the girls are way out of the league of a lot of the guys. A lot of the guys are gay too, so if you are a handsome charismatic guy here you will have a decent set of pickings. Many of the straight guys are super nerd awkward and probably have never touched a woman. The few guys that are what most women would call attractive and charismatic do really well for themselves.

Understandable.

Considering that she'll be making after-sex omelet. It's only fair.
