Point taken and appreciated... I guess these should have always been my priorities anyhow.
I think your implied definition of "transactional work" is unwarrantedly narrow. The stuff I got to participate in was far from repetitive — yes, contracts are contracts, and the same broad issues (e.g. IP, liability control etc) pop up, but there was a pretty broad continuum of substantive variance. And if you think the negotiations (anywhere between two to twelve months of hammerheading terms with legal depts of defense contractors and the like, with governing law...
No, the course was just called "Constitutional Law" and offered by Yale on Coursera. I looked up that book you mentioned though, and it seems to have pretty good reviews all around — but I guess that doesn't necessarily mean anything. What did he revise exactly?

I have a bit of a dilemma so I figured hey, why not take it to the streets? You guys have always been helpful in the past — alright that's a slight exaggeration, but not as much as you'd think. To summarize: I'm at the gates of law school. It's been a long road but I've finally sent out some applications (well, one) and received one acceptance. The catch: I... AM... CANADIAN!! Yes, it's true; I am a naturalized Canadian citizen. The University of Toronto's Faculty of...
