    Thrifted the trench, thinking about slimming it down a notch, and shortening it. 
  You do know that communism and socialism is different, right?
    Thank you for a smart reply. Cold winter time is just something scandinavians use as an excuse. It´s rather the wish for change. As you say, there are a lot of variables to take into consideration. Most people would benefit from staying in Norway, it is much easier to maintain a high living standard here. On the other hand, it is nearly impossible to get stinking-filthy rich in Norway. It does however, after some research (yes, other than internet-forums ;-)) seem...
  True that. No, I haven´t taken purchasing power into consideration. It seems like the salaries are slightly lower in US then. No biggie, I won´t take a job offer in the US unless it´s a good one, so for the sake of discussion, lets say they are the same. Are taxes taken into consideration here? With $90K salaries, you´re looking at 50% tax in Norway.    I´ve heard that there is really long hours and poor labour-law. How do these compare? Working hrs is 37,5 hrs/week....
Will be double post, but waiting for mods takes forever sometimes.   @why: I am aware that it takes more than grades, but thanks for the heads up. I believe I am competent enough to get in, I do more than studying.    @FLMountainMan: Yes, I´ve been offered $90 000 in one of the firms I´ve interned in.   EDIT: Yes, my school has exchange programs with the listed schools. 
  Yes, that is what I have been offered in the firms I´ve interned in.  Thus the thread. I know some of places is the US are cold as well, but not nearly as many. Anyways, I´d like to live in a bigger city too. That excludes Norway.    I am fairly certain I´ll get in in most schools. Served in the military, I have board-experience, teaching experience, 6 yrs in the Red Cross, 4 of those as squad-leader, and some experience as head of operations. I´ve also had internships. 
A lot of great advises here. And + karma for nerdykarim for reaching out.    I am not a lawyer, nor have I studied it, or been in your situation, so this is pretty general stuff.    In my experience, doing well on tests is all about living the field. Talk about law with your friends, think about law, dream about law. That´s how to pass, in addition to the advise the other guys have given, of course.    Whether to take the bar, or not, is a different story....
Not trying to start a flame war. I am just interested in the facts. Currently studying BA. Planning to take my third year(European batchelor degrees are tree years) abroad, not sure where yet. Also planning on taking my masters degree abroad. Doing good, acing most classes so far, so I am hoping to be able to pick whatever schools I´d like. Having looked around in the threads here, it seems like those who have a MA and work in the US are getting $25/hr. How does this...
  It diden´t look like this before, but I can´t find any pics of how it used to look. Anyways, its a 1974 BMW 1602. Not sure whether I love it or hate it. The endless hours of welding, griding and all that shit vs. the joy of driving it. Bilstein Sport dampers and Alpina springs and new bushings makes for a great ride on rainy days.
Where do you live? Different climate calls for diffrent clothing. Also; what are you wearing now, if you are think about upgrading to dark jeans?   Shortlist:   Trousers/jeans:   Chinos; khaki and navy Mid-grey flannels Jeans, find a fit you like, Wagner, Levis, A.P.C, Nudie are some brands.   Torso: Black and white slim fitting tees, I prefer crewnecks to wear under sweaters. V- and crewneck sweaters, Ralph Lauren, Uni-qlo, Lands End, J....
