I don't understand ATL's "Education Cost" metric at all. It's pretty heavily weighted for something that doesn't really measure anything particularly insightful. I know it's trying to approximate the burden of student loans but this is really just a half-assed attempt to gauge that.

Also when did ATL actually care about presenting information in a decent way? Kudos to them. Maybe they'll start taking their jobs seriously now.

EDIT: So I looked at the thread in the main forum and it looks like this issue is already being beat to death. Damn, it's sad to know that my mind is in no way original.

I love their blend of usefulness and trolling personally. I hope they don't become too reputable

If becoming reputable means that they have to forever do away with using "DEWEY" as a pun then so be it it's a sacrifice that I am more than willing to make.

I noticed that too, and found it highly amusing since Mich had their student dinner in the SF Kirkland and Ellis offices.

Hey future NLaw-ers. I'm a 3L and trying to procrastinate so I don't have to study for any exams or write any papers, so feel free to ask me questions! (Please ask me questions. I really don't want to do any work. :( )

What's the most difficult subject you're currently studying? and can you please explain it in meticulous detail?

Are you and your 3l buddies ending up somewhat with the jobs you expected, or are a ton screwed with debt and no jobs?

Most of my friends are pretty happy, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't know a few people who think law school was a mistake.

Yeah, I've been trying to trick myself into studying all day. Still hasn't worked yet.

I wish I were going to the Blackhawks game tonight! This season I've been to Bulls and Blackhawks games. Surprisingly, no Sox yet, but I'll fix that soon enough.
