It's so hard to discern which when those are the two schools most known for attracting insufferable pricks . . .

Don't buy into the hype. Law students are awful everywhere.

sound a little bitter......

Don't act like you wouldn't jump at a chance to attend Columbia or Chicago.


I wouldn't. Chicago mostly because I'd like to continue my streak of not getting shot, though.

Lol at getting shot at Columbia. I know it's near some neighborhoods that used to be seedy, but come on.

Durr, my bad. It wasn't the clearest statement, but if I wasn't finals-addled I would have (and should have) figured it out.

Mea culpa, sir.

I suggested using it as an excuse to ban him awhile ago.

The possibility that you will end up subsidizing the legal educations of PI students is part of what you purchase with your law school tuition. It's perfectly clear that's part of the package ex ante, so you have no reason to complain about it after the fact.

There are a good amount of successful law students that choose public interest b/c of personal convictions. Public Interest is a difficult and uncertain path, especially in today's economy. These ppl wouldn't have the realistic option of choosing a PI career if there wasn't LRAP. Your argument is hyperbolic at best. Most public interest jobs are important jobs that need to be done. LRAP isn't some freeloader's dream--it's a opportunity live modestly, doing good work, without drowning in debt.
