word. posner/scalia clerkships were clearly the result of him being a second-class citizen at yls....

and to clarify, because wikipedia doesn't make this clear, he started at chicago, then transferred to yls

I know I don't, but everyone ITT who was waitlisted has good options. In order to actually be able to get into Yale your grades still have to be pretty darn high. If you are top 1/3 at HSCCN etc why leave?

ok that was hyperbole. but i would only transfer if i was lower t14, if you're in a position to get in as a transfer at yale and your at HYSCCN, you're likely on your way to glory already (top 10%). and there's a chance that you wouldn't do as well at yale.

If you've got a specific reason to be at Yale. For me, it's a certain professor I would sell a kidney to work with...

If by "do[ing] as well" you mean "...as well academically," I doubt what you're saying.

At Yale, it's all Hs and Ps (assuming no Fs); there are no GPAs (unlike Harvard); and there's no curve. Graduating from Yale with Hs and Ps, I think, is far preferable, ceteris paribus, to graduating from anywhere but HLS or SLS.

My roommates have taken advantage of my stress and roped me into driving to the "fancy" liquor store, so at least I will have provisions.

As someone who will be in class (in a cell phone reception-less dungeon no less) until 9 PM tonight, :evil:

Don't worry sabanist, I doubt they'll have decisions by then. My bet's on a midnight-ish release. (I picture them huddled in a room nursing espresso drinks while hashing our fate).
