Anything you get is going to be purely anecdotal and probably unreliable, you will just have to wait for the actual data to be sure


Thank you. When does such information generally become available?

only anecdotal thing that I will say is that kids at the top that were sociable crushed it harder than I expected them to. Getting top firms in cities to which they had no ties and getting firms I had no idea you could get from a lower t14. Off this anecdotal evidence I would hazard a guess that crushing it here puts you in a better position than crushing it at other similarly ranked schools.

What on earth do you mean? No one landed Wachtell or Boies (and obviously no susman), so you must mean W&C. Everything else is fair game.

Yah I know of a callback there, but that is sort of a special case.

Oh I didn't realize that there was anything special about it. Just heard through the grapevine and was pretty impressed.

Has anyone managed to sell any books to Kraftees or the bookstore? I have a like new copy of Shiffrin's con law and would love to get some cash for it. I also have a ton of supplements (couldn't make it to the sale) any thoughts on another good way to get rid of them?

Any upperclassmen here have Meyler for Con Law? How was her exam/what seemed like an effective way to prepare? Thanks.

To be fair, it didn't say Meyler's or Rossi's exams would be discussed. Although I guess that's open for Q&A.

I know some 3Ls who had him. Sounds like the test was had, but nothing out of the ordinary. Big complicated fact pattern/issue spotter. I think a few years ago the question was about a complaint amendment connecting back to the original date in the case of a P dying after a long delay or something like that.

BHS/Clermont exams should give you a good idea of what to expect.

Whaaat? I didn't make that connection at all...if the person who discussed Clermont is here, you're a life saver (...you all were amazing but I only have 2 of the professors that were discussed).

Also -- if anyone has Clermont's hornbook I'd be more than happy to purchase it! (Don't want to wait for it to ship unless I have to) :)

I'm pretty sure only one of the people on the panel posts on TLS. Feel free to PM me your guesses.

the construction really didn't bug me too much until today. now it really bugs me. mostly just the principle of it. Did they tell class of 2013 or 14 that they were going to do this when we were admitted? It seems like the sort of thing effected classes should have gotten a discount for, the least they could do is give us free coffee more than one day a week.
