1L job search / Circuit Court Judge, Internship?
« on: March 02, 2008, 02:11:45 PM »
Hello!

I have an opportunity to work with a Circuit Court Judge as an L0 with an acceptance letter from a T1 school.

I want to emphasize ‘work with’ over ‘intern.’  I will be performing IT duties and other more menial labors due to my background in computer science. 

I have three questions, if you would be so kind as to answer them (or point me to a website with relevant information):   :)

1)   Is a Circuit Court Judge Internship a prestigious position (does it usually pay, is it sought after, etc), or does it vary wildly by state?
2)   How much does it matter that I do internships in a state that I will eventually be working it? For example, I do not care where I work as a lawyer, as long as it is BIGLAW.  Do I need to intern in specific states (like not Montana, West Virginia, North Dakota, etc.) or will it not have an impact?
3)   Lastly, is this going to be a better resume builder than just jerking it over the summer, or could it potentially hurt my long term job prospects by nailing me down to one state?

I truly appreciate your helpful responses.  I look forward to the day I can pass on the advice that you give me.

LSAC and LSDAS / Hold LSDAS report for Rec. Letter???
« on: February 26, 2006, 11:04:07 PM »
One of my professors just barely sent out her letter of recommendation this past friday. My Feb. LSAT scores have come in, and my LSDAS reports will probably be going out tomorrow (Monday). I know LSAC says that once they receive the latest letter, they'll send that out also in another "updated report". But what if the schools make their decision immediately, even before receiving that letter? Should I somehow try to have my LSDAS reports held up? Thank alot for any insight or advice on this.

With handscoring, can they decrease your score too??? or are you locked in at the score they gave, plus more, if warranted?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: LSAT SCORED SHOCKED!!!!

In regards to the handscoring, does anybody know if they're allowed to decrease our points if it turns out that way? or are we locked in at the score we got plus anything else they may give us?

For LSAC to run an investigation every time somebody got written up would take so much $$$ and man power. They're in this business for the money, not to DING people. Also, I don't think it's fair for somebody to get dinged just for looking back at a previous section. That is a minor offense. A warning is sufficient. And I don't think your friend is a bad person... like all these stupid whiteys are making him out to be. "i hope he falls off a bridge," etc... that's bull. you guys worry about your own *&^%. he tooka risk, and it paid off. don't hate.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: Is It Worth It?
« on: January 26, 2006, 07:49:28 AM »
Sorry about the 139 man. in regards to TestMasters... FLIP THAT. go buy the real LSAT books and just do diags or if you dont wanna do full diags.... do sections. that's the best. it comes a point when you wanna stop learning and start doing. good luck man. get that to a 160... and you'll be fine. with about a 20pt increase... or hell...or even 15, most schools will not even look at a 139.
