3L job search / Re: Bummed out
« on: January 07, 2009, 09:45:36 PM »
I guess this can be flamed b/c it is basically me having a pity party for myself. But here goes. I am near the top 10% of my class at a T4 school and do not have a job yet.

Based on your earlier posts, isn't your school second tier, not fourth?  I think generally people expect that a T4 student might have more problems finding work than a T2 student, so if a T2 student in the top 10% can't find work then that might be more unusual (if the economy didn't stink).

If you're using the Bluebook, keep the semicolon and leave "accord" without a capital letter since both "see" and "accord" are signals of the same type.

2L job search / Re: The Waiting Game - Callbacks and Rejections?

I would just wait.  The hiring committees don't always meet when they think they will, so it could (unfortunately) take longer than they led you to believe.

2L job search / Re: Post Call-Back: How are you notified?

My offer was initially communicated by phone, with a formal letter to follow by mail.

I've been sending individual emails to each interviewer.  I've even received responses back from a few. 

Of course, I have no offer yet (but no declines, either), so who the heck knows.  :D

The holding is the court's answer to the issue/question presented, and the doctrinal analysis is how the court applied the rules or policy to the specific issue in order to come up with the holding.

General Board / Re: A Unique Opportunity...Would you do it?

The curve at my school for part-timers was actually higher than the full-time students.  Lots of people do part time because of work/family obligations, and not because they couldn't gain admittance to the full-time program.

Transferring / Re: $250 Registration Cancellation Fee
« on: July 31, 2007, 05:34:41 PM »
I wonder if it is some sort of holdover from your 1L year - perhaps the policy for withdrawing after deposit deadlines still applies later on?

Did you register before you found out you were accepted to transfer?
