WTF? A Harvard pedigree that looks like that?

1 - She's the worst actress in Hollywood, and it ruins her looks. Which were unremarkable to begin with by actress standards.
2 - The picture isn't working.


Megan Fox has already been mentioned ITT

I'd take Fox over Portman. At least Fox knows she's bad and sticks to shitty, dumb movie roles. Portman loves to show up in otherwise well-acted movies and ruin the shit out of them. See, e.g. Closer (wasting Clive Owen's great performance), see also The Darjeeling Limited (wasting Wes Anderson's direction).

I've heard Portman isn't nearly as hot IRL. Then again, I'm not sure what constitutes "not as hot".

If you don't like Portman, how about Shakira as T3? She's supposed to be pretty sharp.

Curious: why is Megan Fox a skank? She doesn't have any getting-out-of-a-limo pictures or multiple boyfriends.

You never saw this story? Besides, if the only role you play in a movie is "girl who fixes a motorcycle upside down so you can see her cleavage," you're a skank by definition.

Even if I finish 1st in my class at my T25 school, I have no problem buying the notion that every Harvard grad, including the kid who finishes dead last in his class, was better qualified going into law school than I was. There's a reason I got dinged from every school ranked higher than 20 that I applied to.

But I don't think the lowest Harvard grad will have a better understanding of the law than the top grad from my school, just because he had the opportunity to learn from Harvard professors (I'm not implying that there is anybody who would make this drastic of an argument).

If you had to rank every grad from every school for a given year, how would you integrate the [Penn] class with the [Yale] class with the [Emory] class with the [Cooley] class? (Insert whatever school or group of schools in the brackets.)


Are you serious?

When people graduate from law school, they generally have equal knowledge of the law (whether it be Yale or just about any other law school).

That knowledge is pretty much useless to employers.

So they have to train you - whether it be judges or partners.

What distinguishes schools are the rankings.

While firms do enjoy hiring people at the top of a class, there is little difference between them and someone at the middle of a class.

You need to distinguish between "real" differences and "firm perceived" differences in your question.


Even ignoring you're terrible formatting and structure, this is one of the dumbest posts I have ever read.

I'd easily take Shakira over Portman and Fox.

And yes, most of them (probably all) are not as goodlooking in RL. But that's hardly a surprise.
