Re poll: It's obvious, but don't forget Chris Hemsworth and Chris Pratt. Find some good men over 45 too. Wait, do we only get to pick one?
Aubrey Plaza and Ellen Page are great choices. And Tegan AND Sara of Tegan and Sara.

Aubrey plaza would totally have a sex slave

Also I'm onboard for the sex slave poll. That is not something I ever expected to say on this forum.

Who do u suggest

Gal Gadot, Aubrey Plaza, Emma Watson

I'm comfortable enough to say Idris Elba is a beautiful man.

Schools definitely go through apps pretty early on. I know Duke can return a decision 10 days after file completion through priority track, and other schools notify as early as October.

UVA also admitted a guy within 24 hours of applying on September 1st at midnight this cycle.

If you apply with a score on record and are retaking, you need to tell the schools that you're retaking and to hold your app unless you're retaking to sit the cycle out. They could make decisions before your new score comes out. And if you have good stats Duke will offer the PT app and it's really cool to get a t13 acceptance out of the way quickly

Random question that's been flying through my mind lately, if I want Florida Big Law/Fed Clerk (which isn't my only target but lets assume it is for now) would I have a good shot at it from lower T13 with strong legal and personal ties to the state, or is it really such an insular market that UF would give you a better shot?

I looked at the associates' education at the top firms in my state to better gauge this.

I just want to remind you that the FL market as a whole is a tough market to crack, nonetheless their BL market.

I second chargers with Duke being a good choice for FL though. But still, see where some recent associates at FL's BL firms went to school at though.

I also know someone who was admitted within 24 hours of applying, on the day apps were due lol

That's really interesting to hear of someone going Florida BL from Cornell!

Yeah Florida BL is tough to crack, which is why I am planning on targeting multiple other markets. And as you and others have said, I'll look into where new associates at FL BL firms went to school. I'm mainly just thinking out loud here in order to get the LSAT out of my head, the real research will be done later.

Yeah, if his priorities go something like Florida BL > generic BL > generic Florida law, Duke gives plenty of great options in case Florida doesn't come to fruition. UF/FSU would not. Now, if he wants Florida BL and in the event he misses that train he wants Florida small law, and does not want to go elsewhere at all, then UF and FSU make some sense

You're likely going to see that many went to UF and FSU. At my home market firms, almost everyone went to my UG or the ttt in the city. I still think my t13 degree would allow me the chance to go back with some grade flexibility

My priorities are currently Federal Clerkship > Florida BL > DC BL > Southern BL > NY BL > Florida Small Law/PI/State Government. Duke and UVA seem to be far and away the best schools for fulfilling these goals, with Cornell and Vandy being up there as well, despite location and lower BL% respectively. In the event I do not initially practice in Florida I'd want to eventually lateral into midlaw/in house in Florida, although I'm open to living elsewhere long term.

Gotta get that LSAT first though!

I'm so tired of being in limbo, I don't think I've ever been this anxious about anything. I felt most confident immediately after the test, so I'm trying to bring those feelings to the forefront because this self doubt makes it so much worse haha.
