Thanks! Didn't we decide that an A- warranted a euphoric response?

Straight A-sus merits euphoria. The jury is still out on appropriate responses to a single instance. But even so, it's a great start, and to be honest, I for one would be euphoric with an A-s for at least some of my courses (looking at you, con law and legreg).

I don't believe that was the holding ITT. Euphoric has been referenced the most, but I think it has been dicta. I don't think there are enough grades out and emotions felt for this issue to be ripe enough to have a thread-wide standard. Your case will help crystalize the boundaries.

I'm sure the 2nd circuit will find a way to gratuitously raise the bar for euphoria no matter what the rest does

I'm happy to see our procrastination is, once again, in sync.

I give you about 50/50 but since application fees have been waived you might as well give it a shot. I'm only top 98% at an ATL T20 school so given those odds I'm not sure it's worth the effort of getting my application materials together for this POWERHOUSE but maybe I can be a visiting student for a semester, that'd be great too

You're not T20 anymore bro. Good luck, you're gonna need it if you want to transfer to a 'MOST DIVERSE' LAW SCHOOL with HANDS-ON CLINICAL PROGRAMS.

Somehow google took me to last year's version of this all-important ranking, which is shocking, since the new ATL rankings should be the first result no matter what the search terms were. This lack of attention to detail on my part merely goes to show just how unworthy I am of transferring to the LEGAL POWERHOUSE

I can personally attest to the greatness of attending a law center, as opposed to some petty law school. Everyday I wake up with a sense of purpose, knowing that, while the world is my oyster, I am bound by a duty to mankind to better this world by utilizing the skills the law center helps me develop. Justice is the end, law is but the means.

Since justice is the guardian of liberty, does that mean law is the means for liberty? I'm bad with all of those transitive properties and logic stuff.
