My hate on corporate law is a general one. I'm sure there are few exception to the rules that allows it for a certain individual to pursue that career path with justification. But some of these corporations...man I don't know. Granted my hate is unfair but to me, it seems like some of these corporate lawyers sold their souls to the devil just for the big paycheck.

I want to be a criminal defender (or perhaps immigration lawyer). But this stigma against prosecutors..it's nonsense. If there's going to be a stigma against prosecutors, it should be the same for defenders. And I thought I was pretty progressive. Have to see for myself how the student body is like once I get admitted.

it's a public school so I'm guessing probably closed.

Well aware that law school chicks are not...hot in general. However, one can wish that a certain school is exception to the rule.

For real? You're "pretty progressive" and you're asking what women at your potential law school look like?

Maybe you should relax about people wanting to do corporate law! See, no one is perfectly PC. We should just accept each other for that. It's much better than ripping on everyone else because they aren't perfect.

It's just my opinion of corporate law. I don't know why people are overly sensitive about what I said. If you don't agree with me, that's fine. I don't know why I should be lectured on for though, especially when that was 1 page ago. If you've had bad experience with your classmates, then that's unfortunate. No need to lecture a 0L about it.

the poster who is implying that i'm a hypocrite..how is asking if the female student body is attractive or not any means sexist? It was a silly question to ask I admit but I'm not basing my law school decision on that. It's not a serious matter. I don't think wanting to see a beautiful girl or two has anything to do with political stance.

It's not sexist at all; women judge men on their looks too.

The person who called you a hypocrite probably did because it's superficial to care about someone's looks, just as it's superficial to want to work purely for money.

I'm not judging you at all for that-i judge women on how they look too. I'm just saying we all have out superficialityies and ideological imperfections, so we shouldn't judge others too harshly for thinking a certain way. Example: saying you hate people that want to do corporate law for money, or saying you hate people that judge other people on the way they look.

And I'm really sorry if I'm coming off as a dick. I'm gonna PM you.

I don't think that's what that poster meant. Didn't seem like poster was implying anything about that but who knows.

Don't worry about it. I'm not exactly one who gets offended easily. I did voice my opinion rather hastily. I do apologize for that. I'll choose better words next time around.

@scrowell: I'm not concerned with whether people are PC; I'm concerned with whether people are saying things that are offensive.

@fatpeopleavenger: I understand that asking about the attractiveness of "chicks" at a particular school may seem benign, but when you consider that we live in a society in which girls are taught that looks are basically their most important asset and women are constantly measured by how "hot" they are, that apparently benign question takes on new meaning. Of course, women sometimes judge men based on their looks too, but the context is different because men are the ones who primarily hold positions of power (i.e, CEOs, political positions, etc.) and their perceived worth is more often not based primarily on appearances. What I'm trying to say is that in a vacuum, your question would be benign, but because of systemic power imbalances and sexist double-standards, I find it offensive.

The reason I pointed out that you had said you were progressive is because I tend to make the (maybe erroneous) assumption that progressive people are "supposed" to be anti-racist, anti-classist, anti-sexist, etc.

Also, I'm absolutely not saying that it's bad or wrong or sexist to think that someone is hot or attractive or whatever. It's just bothersome when that aspect consistently supersedes other qualities.

Still in review. Nuts. I'm leaving home for the next four months tomorrow morning, so if they try to reach me via snail mail, I'm going to find out later than they expect.

You should send them an email telling them of your situation.

I think you will find out via status checker and mail at the same time. This happened to me, but I never got an email though.

AND... under the Mailings heading it says Decision letter mailed on 2/24/12 (which is tomorrow).
