3) What percentage (guesstimation) of people that want LR get it?
1- I haven't talked to anyone that is aiming for entertainment law, but I'm sure there are a couple out there. There's a strong concentration of California and thus LA natives here, and I wouldn't be surprised if a handful of them ended up working in sports/entertainment law.
2- We've only had the fall intramural season thus far, but flag football was quite popular. I captained and ended up with around 20 1Ls on the team and had to turn away some people. I am expecting intramural basketball to be quite popular, too. Basketball tends to be the most organized, well-run intramural sport at Stanford because games never rainout and it's always easy to get at least 5 people to show up and play on a weeknight.
There's also a healthy community for pickup basketball and football that we run through various email lists/fbook groups.
3- Other SLSers should correct me if I'm wrong, but I think around 1/3 of the people who do the LR writing exercise are selected for LR.
