A few weeks ago, I was pushing Nicholas Allard as my choice for the new dean at the University of Baltimore Law School.
Well, he got hired. But not by us. At this time, I would like to withdraw my endorsement.
In the spirit of sour grapes, I want to say that I did not want this guy anyway. Seriously. After I wrote that blog post, I Googled him and found that he has basically been applying to be the new dean at every law school from here to Timbuktu. I thought he saw a unique opportunity in Baltimore. Instead, he was just a guy who wanted to be a law school dean somewhere. Not that there is anything wrong with that. But, the girl at the bar who really wants to go home with anyone is not quite as appealing as the one who sees something special in you.
I learned about this from a comment to my original post.
