Transferring / Re: top 10% at T3 is what % at a T20 (GW) ? - (OCI)
« on: July 18, 2008, 10:17:46 PM »
Most OCI firms will tell you what percentage they are looking for.  They may go deeper at some schools, but I don't think there is a formula to help you.

Haha. Do I sense some jealousy? Or have you just learned when to shut your mouth? Check my past posts. I haven't been on here long, but I've discussed clerkships before. Thanks for playing!

Wait is this where I'm supposed to be impressed? Cuase I'm not feeling it for some reason.
Who are you?... Just feeling lonely and wanted to join?

Matthies is everywhere.  He's in the birds, the trees, even the air.  Sometimes you'll see him, sometimes you won't, but he's always watching you.


<--- is omnipresent


wait.  i thought you were omnipotent.

Can't it be both?

Btw, was that the "You want some too?" comment I just saw?  Way to break it off old school... didn't think I'd see that here.

I find that, despite the many rationalizations, most people who didn't apply for journals just didn't think they'd get on.

Fighting... urge... to... make... remark... about... ignorant... over... generalization...

Ok, the moment has passed.

Who's up for streaking through the quad up to the gymnasium?  Anyone?

Are you interested in clinics, moot court, or mock trial?  These help tremendously.  Also, do you work outside of school?  Smaller firm work during the school year can really help, or so I've heard.  I would rather take someone who's been drafting MSJs or writing briefs for two years over the kid from the International Law of Hot Dog Vending and General Snack-Dog Practices Journal any day of the week.  Possibly they'll know what they are doing when they get there.

I'm going the clinic route.  I had an easy decision in front of me though.  I don't want to do big law and would like to study in Canada for a semester.  Journals at my school are a two year commitment.  Thus, I'm no longer eligible.  So long as you look like you did something, you should be fine.  I wouldn't rule out a successful career just yet.  Employers are going to care about grades more than anything else.  Boost the GPA, but that's standard advice regardless of the circumstances.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: U of Oregon Law??

You have a good shot at getting in there.  Also, if you're looking at practicing in Oregon, you're making a wise choice.  Besides, I hear Eugene is a crazy town with a great college atmosphere.  Get ready to be assaulted by green and yellow though. 

The Pacific NW is an amazing place.  I hope you're an outdoors kind of person, because when it's nice outside, there is no better place to go hiking, swimming, kayaking, etc...  I'm also incredibly biased because I'm totally crushing on the NW.  Some would call me a player, but I'm not.  I just crush a lot.

My biggest piece of advice is choosing the people you decide to associate with. Don't form a study group until you have had a few weeks to get to know people. And even then, keep everyone at a distance until you are absolutely certain they are cool.

For example...I found out that one of the guys in my study group of five was secretly checking another guy's emails and found out he had lied about one of his grades. I have a super problem with the first guy, and now (not that I care about his grades) I always second guess whatever the second guy says...

Also, stay away from the "stressers" and the "braggers"...and don't become one.



Really? Wow, that's sketchy.  I haven't seen anything like that, but then again I'm oblivious.
I've heard of people in study groups giving intentionally false information, but I've never experienced it myself.  However, I second the idea of you needing to trust the people you're in a group with.  It would be WAY too easy to manipulate the information if someone wanted to be an a$$.  This is why I <3 my study group.  We're all either (1) clueless or (2) honest.

That is true, he/she appreciated it.  I guess some guys like a girl to put them in their place once in a while... :P

Good luck.  You'll have many "sisters".

For me, either the 5 day stubble, or for a bolder approach, the "Full Bunyan."

Discuss.
