I second botbot: it depends on how close you are.  If you're not close and you can get a higher GPA by dropping it, I say drop it.

Law School Admissions / Re: UCLA - summer associateship, 1L and 2L

From speaking with current UCLA law students, there seems to be a lot of uncertainty.

Uncertainty as in they think prospects are bad or uncertainty as in they have no idea what prospects look like?

If the latter, I'm not sure anyone could really give you any good answers.  The whole biglaw framework is getting shaken around a bit.  Hard to say what's going to happen in the next year or two until it actually happens.  :(

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Goodbye from LawDog!

I say this from the bottom of my heart: You might be the biggest idiot I've seen on LSD. Of course that only spans the three year period I've been on this board. I do not wish you good luck. I wish that you don't go to law school.

I hope he goes to my law school to create a buffer at the bottom of the curve, however if he's an idiot savant I don't think I could stomach getting beat by LawDog.

Imagine how I'm going to feel when he creams me in court.  :D

LOL.  Good to know, since I'm definitely headed to law school to have a good time.  ::)

I think it's a good thing.  Get some sense of where you are, what areas you need to focus on, etc.  Worked for me, anyway.  :)

How about populists? 

Those come in all flavors.  ;)

Law School Admissions / Re: semester off??? part time??

My instinct is it seems like when you compare two similar applications, it would look like the kid who took a semester off (even if it was for some kind of legitimate mediocre internship or something)was lazy in comparison to the kid who did not.

If this is, in fact, not advised, how could it compare to the part time option? in a way, taking a class or two might even seem more like a cop-out. At least if you were completely away from school it could be assumed that that the student was doing something as an alternative.

I know people who took time off during school and didn't do anything really amazing or anything.  It didn't impact them negatively, as far as I can tell.
