Job Search / Re: Should I apply to all the OCI firms?
« on: August 11, 2007, 09:26:39 AM »
I'm sick of trying to figure out which OCI firms I want to interview with and the resume drop is fast approaching.  Is there any harm in applying to all the firms and then turning down OCI screening interviews after researching some more.  Do firms get offended by this, or is it expected?  Should I care if they do get offended?   ???

You might want to check with career services. It might just be my crazy school, but we can not turn down screening interviews if offered (unless under crazy circumstances and already having a job is not one of them.) I think CS is worried about them getting offended.

Current Law Students / Tax Study Guides?

My tax final is purely t/f or fill in the blank. Does anyone have any suggestions for study aids that are mainly short problems?

I would definitely wait until school starts to buy anything. Some people love study aids and others hate them, so I would wait to see what feels best for you. As far as what to buy, heres some suggestions:
-Ask a 2L who had that professor and see what they used.
-Pick your aid based on what type of exam it is. E&E's have great short answer questions.
-Look around your professors office. I had two professors that had study aids in their offices and those books were prefect matches for those classes.
-Look around your library. Ours has a section of study aids. This will allow you to see what everyone else has used, but it will also let you look at them for free.
-Get ones that match with your book. You assume the professor picked the book because it states the rules as they like, so the study aid which states the same thing would be best.
-Look through old posts on the boards about certain classes. Certain books are known for being good for certain subjects (ex. Gilbert's on Property.)

Good thread. Any other advice?

I think I remember our Dean saying that under the ABA you have to wait 2 years; however, I think you can appeal that after a year and they might let you in if they have "seen a change." I think you might be best actually asking your school.

Do most schools release grades one at a time? Ours get held and then released all at once (for 1L.)

Current Law Students / Learning Assistant?

So, how important is it to be a TA? I was asked to be one for the fall, but I would have to change my schedule so that the classes dont conflict. (I am really happy with my current schedule too.) Im also worried that it might be a lot of work. So, how good does it look on a resume? Is it worth it?

You would have people ordering food to be delivered to the room so they didn't have to leave...

I had an untimed in class exam in undergrad and the professor did order pizza about half way through. Such a bad idea for a law exam.

I love the evening program, but there are a couple of things to think about. How easy it to switch to day? (All I have to do is check a box, but do you have to apply?) How many hours behind are you? (Im just behind one summer, but that has limited my jobs for the summer because I have to take classes.) And what will you do during the day time? (I have been volunteering, but lots of interviewers what to do what your doing, other than watching tv.)

Current Law Students / Re: Ranking of Jobs?

Ok, maybe I didnt really explain what I meant. I meant something like a big law job is better than a small firm, but a non-profit job might be better than a research job? Like how much would I big shooting myself in the foot if I took a research position with a professor instead of an in-house job at a large company?
