I feel like law school is a surprisingly apt analogy.

What did you guys put for the entertainment etc part of the financial aid form?

ETA: and the "dollar assessment of your financial need", does that include all the tuition and stuff from the previous page?

wannabelawstudent wrote:Yeah I didn't want to push the issue when whats his face did the "ftfy" But please please please don't choose WUSTL based on the people posting in this thread. The fact is half of us probably will not go, and going to a school because you think you'll like the classmates is a bad choice. The fact of the matter is wherever you go more than half of your class will be pretentious kids you'll never wished to speak to.

If my joking fix influences anyone, then lol at them (no offense [kinda]).

I think I put $1000, because I had no idea and it's a nice round number.

And yeah, that's how I read it. Minus savings/family contributions/etc. if applicable.

K I did abouts the same. Btw I wasn't offended I was just poasting on my phone and couldn't look at who posted what.

As for why I want to overthrow dproduct. I don't quite remember why but I imagine if I feel this strongly I had to have had a good reason.

"Firms have . . . begun to move toward more flexible staffing models, expanding their use of non-partner track associates, staff attorneys, and contract lawyers. Going forward, it is likely that firms will remain conservative in their hiring policies, even as demand begins to grow. As a result, firms probably will be relatively smaller in terms of the number of partners and traditional partner-track associates and relatively larger in terms of the number of other lawyers and non-lawyer professionals."

Awww yeaaaaaaaaa. More encouraging news!

That doesn't really sound like a good thing if you want partner.
