    was the light worth that, or was it a punitive bill?


    i have a friend at GW right now, he looks like he should have a few options lined up g-d willing, but it seems like even from the better schools, if you not at the top portion of the class, with really good summer internships and what not, you might be hosed.

    this is especially true for the biglaw jobs, which are the only jobs that your typical ivy leaguer thinks is good enough for them. The best qualification that a young lawyer can have right now is the ability and willingness to scrounge and do the dirty work.

    My best friend wants to go to law school and I know for a fact he will be successful as fuck.

    Not even because of whatever law school he gets into, but because he has an amazing network and his charisma and ability to relate to ANYONE is beyond anyone I've ever seen.

    He's the most charming motherfucker I've ever met, it's ridiculous.

    That will take you a very, very long way. I hate people like that, too.

    I've worked with a few people who look great on paper and are just the worst employees. The things that help them succeed in an academic environment make them shit at working in the real world.

    Seriously. Success in life is almost directly proportional to how well you can connect with people and connect other people with each other.


    Nah. We're both quite good looking although I will objectively say I am better looking.

    At 6'1" with a slender / athletic build, MTM clothes, and a solid sense of style, I get double takes all the time. Especially more so because I'm asian and people aren't used to seeing good looking asian guys cause most of them are ugly (the distribution curve skews towards the left in terms of asian male attractiveness). Some girl literally told me guys like me are unicorns cause you never see them around.

    I love meeting cocky but insecure white guys for the first time because they always try to up front me, especially when I'm way taller than them.

    I was blessed with fantastic genes -- thanks mom!

    This is the first time I have ever heard "Asian" and "cocky" in the same breath.

    that was the actual cost to buy new + install. Everything at the corporate level seems 5x more expensive than at home. I swear to god my keyboard could break and my boss would have to approve an expense of $175 or some stupid shit like that.

    The military is the same way. Oh, you lost a Vietnam era canteen? $50.

    I'd bet most of it is going to BS internal expense categories and not the guy replacing the bulb.

    This. Plus (everyone's favorite topic) unions. To move a PC one cubicle over here costs approx $1500 because the building's union employees have a set rate for a "desk move"--regardless of whether it is across the country or one cube over.

    With PCs, lots of corporate companies don't buy, they lease, with big fat service contracts. That's why it costs so much--not because they are buying it, but because if something breaks, they don't want to fuck with it, they want to be able to call HP and say "your problem, take it back and give me another".

    That's a good point: I've heard that Sadaharu Oh could be a little bit arrogant at times.
