Perhaps I should have limited the scope of the questions to my law school.

1. No.

2. Depends on your definition of "fun."

is it really that much better than Northwestern?


1. I'm rarely there, except when I watch NFL games on the 4th floor. Go Bengals!

2. I have no idea. FWIW, I have a job.

1. how many people pursue clerkships obtain them?
2. How are people fairing with employment that are below the median/bottom of the class?
3. What is the difference between people who are above the median and those below it?

1. There are clerkships talks/a manual in the spring of your 2L year. You go through OSCAR. Honestly, this process is not very interesting.

2. Depends on personality/effort/luck/market to which you applied. I know that's the answer nobody wants to hear, but, alas, such is life.

3. Not sure what you mean.

3. I meant do people have different attitudes towards school that cause them to be at the top or bottom. Or is just a matter of preparation and performance on exams.

It takes all kinds to make a curve. Some don't care. Some effortlessly infuse issue spotters with their brilliance. Others don't "get" law school. One guy wrote slowly and couldn't get to every issue.

Being an amphetamine fiend doesn't make you a fraud? The Babe never left home without a corked bat, and the say hey kid was a fiend for greenies just like hammerin hank. Maybe Griffey is TCR.

1. Did you live in regents? If so what did you like least about regents?
2. Are there any other high-risers that face the lake that are affordable for students?
3. Or would you recommend living in UC grad housing?

1. I lived in Regents last summer. I liked everything about it except for the price.

2. I think so. A good friend of mine lived in one. But I don't know anything about it.

3. Yeah. It's affordable (usually $700 for a studio, including utilities but no internet), and you can break the lease at any time, for any reason.

1. Depends on the prof. Most are fairly accessible. A few make themselves more scarce.

2. Determined. To do what? This is the real question.
