Umm...turn off the internet during class. I haven't been able to do it yet, but I'm pretty sure it would do wonders for my attention level.

I'm working at a great law firm

there are law firms in DC now?

on a serious note, how does 1LSAness affect your fall interview strategy? 

on an unserious note, i'm neither Harvard or Yale and i'd like to know if you would be willing to give me a job.

I'm not sure how this will affect the fall OCI, honestly. I really like this place, and I'd love to come back if they give me an offer. I'm not sure if any other place could really top it, but I guess I'd take a look around at other firms for next summer, and maybe a few public interest places, if they'll take me. If not, I'd be perfectly happy to come back here, which reduces the job-finding stress significantly.

I'd be willing to give you a job. How good are you with cats? ;)

Wishing the next five weeks would fly by so I could be where I f-ing WANT to be.

And chewing gum.


Where do you want to be? And where are you? Remember, I've been away. I know little.


Blonde, hot, and awesome. As always. :P How're you?

You're blonde? 


*le sigh*

Nonono, HD is blond. I'm a brunette. I'm not sure if that "le sigh" was good or bad, so...

I'm working at a great law firm, getting market rate in DC ($3100/week, though most of it gets deducted off my grants, sadly), and it's a job I got through Spring OCI (I got two firm offers and a couple of public interest jobs through that). I'm also splitting with a non-profit in California, which will be paying me like $250/week (this one I got on my own, just sending out my resume in late February).

So far, the firm's been awesome. There's three other 1Ls in the summer class, but they're all from Harvard/Yale, which confirms what everyone's been saying about how much school names matter (they didn't even ask me for a writing sample).

Everyone on here seems to be doing the Access group for loans, what about the Gate Y loans? I just figured they might be easier since they are administered by Yale. Also, I'll be living in a building called Howe Place, they are pretty close to campus and have good rates. It was highly recommended by a current student, who also said the Towers are awful. The reviews seem to be mixed on the Towers, however.

I like the towers (Madison is the one I have personal experience with). Fairly cheap for lots of space. They're old, but management tends to be responsive to problems (for example, we had issues with our shower leaking, so they replaced the "painted" shower floor with tile, and they replaced our old oven with a pretty cool new gadget-y one without our asking). I've seen some really well-decorated, nice looking apartments in the Towers. On the other hand, our cat killed a mouse in the apt. a few months ago (the first evidence of mice we've ever seen, but there it is).

As for loans, I use Gate-Y. I'm not sure how it compares to the others, though, because I actually had no choice but to use Gate-Y (I'm an int'l student). I've had no problem with loan disbursements so far, and Yale Finaid has been incredibly helpful and responsible.

To Yale? We all know that, Stan. 50%, no matter the numbers.
