Or as New York rapper DMX and his Ruff Ryders crew would say: "Get down or lay down mothafucka."

We will be losing an ungodly amount of talent in the 2016 NFL Draft. So much so, I would even go as far as to call 2016 a rebuilding year. I would almost expect to lose more than one game and fall out of playoff contention. HOWEVER, since we're having this whole "dynasty" conversation, should Coach Meyer lose that many players and STILL find a way to Three-peat, I believe the "dynasty" term would absolutely be relevant. Hell, even if he is able to field a team that enters the playoff, thats damn good.

Side-note: While we're on the topic of the 2016 NFL draft, anyone think NFL teams will collaboratively shell out 9 figures ($100 million+) in contracts to our rookie Buckeyes? I, for one, absolutely do.

Can't wait until I'm an Alumni.

I would love to only be $50-100k in debt at the end of this thing. Most T14 schools are about $55-$60K per year for tuition and fees alone. Lets conservatively say living expenses are in the $25k a year range. We'll say the total cost of attendance per year is roughly $85,000. Most people do not/cannot work a normal job while attending law school. So I'm looking at about $255,000 in debt by the end of it. For shits and giggles, lets toss in another $30,000 for undergrad debt. 

The way I see it, if I'm not making $100-$180k out of the gate, I'll drown in that for the rest of my life. 

Which also makes me wonder. If I were to receive a full scholarship to Top Tier law school that isn't a T-14 (14 through 50), should I take that? Granted I would assume minimal debt, but if that damns me to a life of career mediocrity, should I just take the enormous debt and roll the dice, so to speak?

I'm totally joining this week. My only complaint would be the flask. As a recovering alcoholic, I don't have much use for it. However, I have plenty of use for every single other item in the Dry Goods store.

Thank you for the advice! Yeah, thus far I have a 4.0 with honors, I'm certain something will come along and knock that down a peg. Generally speaking, do these paid LSAT prep courses that are offered seem to help? I've also seen former admissions employees offer "consulting" services when it comes to the admissions process. 

I also read your other posts. I, too, am used the being the smartest guy in the room in all of my classes. However, I have this enormous fear that I'll get into law school and be "exposed." That everyone will eventually figure out I'm some kind of fraud and I don't deserve to be there. I guess that's a common sentiment. My stepfather is a rather prominent physician in his field, even becoming Chief of Staff for a very large hospital. He told me that he constantly felt that someone was going to "figure him out" all throughout med school and the first decade that he practiced medicine. He said that eventually goes away.  I hope it does! I won a literary award at my school this past year and I was convinced that the English department head made a mistake when she told me that I was "one of the best thinkers she's ever worked with." I kept waiting for the punchline. LOL. 

Comment 11 Aug 2015

Completely agreed. It's the reality of the profession right now. As much as I want to practice law, I have no desire to be a quarter million dollars in debt with a $50k a year job. Unless, of course, it's a federal clerkship in the first few years after graduation. I'm a philosophy/political science major. If I don't get into one of the T14's, I won't be attending law school. A career in academia will be my next step. 

Comment 11 Aug 2015

Agreed. If it was the very best LS I could get into, I could swallow my pride. However, I think if I had other potentially equal or better options, the whole UM hatred thing could probably play a pretty hefty role. 

Comment 11 Aug 2015

I can't bring myself to go to The Game in Ann Arbor, much less live there. But what a great law program they have. 

Also: I've only entered the State of Michigan once in my 28 years. I was in Detroit for less than 24 hours and I was robbed at gunpoint. This actually happened.

As your resident 11W sneaker aficionado, these do not glow in the dark. They have 3M reflective materials on the back heel. So they will reflect light when it is shined upon it. There are different levels of 3M reflection, some of it REALLY pops. It doesn't even need to be dark for it to "bling." Just google "3M Sneakers" for a better idea.

I usually love all things 3M. I have an all 3M windbreaker. But these are my least favorite Buckeye-themed shoes to drop recently.

The Lunar TR-1? OH HELL YEAH.

The Nike SC-2 Trainer (Bo Jacksons)? CUT ME SOME.

Just not feeling the new ones.
