Why Philly? If there’s anything I know about PA it’s that Pittsburgh >>>>>Philly.

Also, was recently opposite Pepper Hamilton and not impressed. Maybe Blank Rome would be a good prospect? What kind of law do you practice? I have a friend who used to work at Saul Ewing and liked it there.

Morgan, Dechert, Pepper, Duane, Drinker, Reed Smith, etc. I have heard great things about Saul and Drinker. Some of my friends have even worked it some of the other offices (Chicago/NYC) and noted that Philly’s hours are better.

I am very conservative in investment. Have $650K in CDs/HYS, $50K in stock funds, and maxing out 401K. I have no debt except $520K of house mortgage @ 2.6% interest rate (house value is approx $1M). Does it make sense to pay out a portion of the mortgage or should I invest more in the market?

So, I see a lot of passive aggressiveness towards the new bowl. While someone rightly pointed out that it really highlights the divide amongst us, the reactions to the creation of the other bowl also highlights our intolerance. If you guys have a problem with that other bowl, just don’t join it! I’d rather there be a separate bowl than have people to hear moan about visa posts. Also, I don’t understand when people moan about these visa posts. If you feel that’s all that’s being discussed here, it’s because the others aren’t posting at all. Finally, just to add I’m one of your ‘visa’ guys too. Let’s just learn to be a little tolerant about people who don’t agree with our views, shall we?
