Don't post shit like that in here, thanks


Yeah, I really try to be polite here... so I'm going to politely ask you to go fuck yourself.

Median at CCN usually leads to really good outcomes unless you're a bad interviewer. Maybe callbacks are just happening a little slower this year.


Yes usually. This year is not usual. Half of H doesn't have a single CB right now.


Err. You sure? Everyone I know at a T14 has been killing it. Multiple CBs and multiple offers.

I'm digging all the free food. Otherwise orientation is pretty boring.

Just found out that Michigan didn't actually book my room for pre-orientation, so I get to spend $160 to stay at a Comfort Inn.

Law school is off to a SWIMMING start.

Does law school start at orientation or with classes? What's the consensus?

So far law school includes getting to sleep in and lots of free food. And tons of reading but the food makes up for it.
