This is retarded. California will eventually make the budget process simpler, but come on. There are more than 30,000,000 people here, including three of the most important urban areas in the nation and the center of the tech industry. California isn't going anywhere. Notwithstanding NYC and DC, it's bascially the center of the world, and will continue to be for quite some time.
If you're going to worry about something, at least make it earthquakes.
this makes me feel better.
i was more talking about job prospects. i heard from a 1L at hastings that the government has implemented a hiring freeze which makes all firm jobs more competitive. obviously it is tough everywhere but id rather not move to a place that was even more competitive because of the state's economy.
i wouldnt exactly say my feelings are retarded..
Govt. hiring is down in a down economy, there's no getting around that, but that will change. CA fluctuates like any other place. This last year was bad, but it's far from a huge deal in the long run. It might even be beneficial if it sparks some momentum to overturn Prop 13, but that's another thread.
Besides, this is TLS. What are you talking about govt. jobs for? 100% of TLS posters are sure they will be top-10% and making $160,000.
that makes sense. well thats good. id love to move to cali. i got into hastings and now waiting for davis.
