1L job search / Re: Magistrate Judge
« on: January 28, 2008, 08:09:48 PM »
Even if I want to see what family law is like? I have very good grades at a T1 (but not T25) and I'm not all that concerned about prestige.  Do you think a state court judge would really be that bad for me?

I received an offer for a family court judge (state court) and I interviewed today with a magistrate judge. I need to tell the family court judge ASAP (she's given me a month) and I won't find out about the magistrate judge until next week.
I don't know what kind of law I want to go into, but I may consider family law.
Any suggestions of what to do? Should I risk it?

Hey! I'm going to be a 1L at Maryland too. I'd say it all depends on your relationship with your family, how long the commute is and whether or not you will be able to do work at home (I never can, though that could be because I'm always home for holidays).

As for places to leave near campus, I'm living in Ridgely's Delight next year, which is about a 7 minute walk to the law school. It's mostly rowhouses and located south of the school on the east (or "right" lol) side of MLK (but near it).  It's a relatively safe neighborhood for what it is, and the rent is very reasonable.  The only other options in my opinion (if you want to live in walking distance) are in apartment complexes downtown. I heard the Marlboro classic, redwood, and camden court are nice. They're more pricey though. What turned me off to the apts the most was that parking is anywhere between $80 and $140 a month!

I hope this helps a bit

my school doesn't allow DirectLoans, but I don't know about others.  I shopped around a bit.. but apparently not enough.. i'm going with Bank of America for Stafford and GradPlus loans.

Choosing Maryland wasn't a very tough decision for me.. I really like Baltimore (though I haven't spent that much time there) and I liked the school's facilities when I visited, though I unfortunately didn't get to see the school while in session.  The jump in ranking also made me more confident about my decision.  I want to live within walking distance to the campus with a roommate… but I haven't decided on either yet lol.  I've been looking a bit on the Maryland housing website and craigslist though.  I don't really know the area well so I'm worried about living in a bad neighborhood.  Any help would be much appreciated! Do you know where you’re living yet? Also, have you felt like there's been a lack of correspondence with the school.. I feel like I haven't received anything in a while...

this is for anyone going to Maryland this fall.. feel free to post anything.. roommate requests, concerns, questions, whatever!

did you just call them to find out?

can you defer after you send your seat deposit in? If I get a job as a paralegal for a year I might want to defer, but I wouldn't know for a little while and the deposits are due soon...
