2L job search / Re: Grades Needed For Market Pay From Michigan???
« on: December 17, 2008, 05:48:50 PM »
I'm willing to go to almost any market - prefer Chicago, but willing to go to California, Texas, DC, Seattle.  I more than 3 years corporate work experience (not lawyer, just various positions).    Career services doesn't have any stats yet. 

Pick a market or two to which you have close ties.  If you're not from CA, TX, or WA interviewing for those markets is pretty much a waste of time.  DC also is pretty tough to get into without some valid reason for being there.

Stats from career services for this year aren't going to mean much.  The economy will be much different next year, either significantly better or significantly worse.  Also, I don't think looking for a specific grade cut off really makes much sense.  I know many people around the median who had multiple offers and many signicantly above the median with comparatively few.  Just do the best you can on exams, I promise you that you'll have plenty of time to worry and obsess about this stuff next June-November.

how can you afford to pay back over $100,000 in loans on that?

Many many many people are closer to 175k - 200k in loans. . .

Minority Topics / Re: The LGBTQ Thread

Come to Penn  :)

I have heard that Penn loves the gays!

Is that true?

Yes, very much so. Penn is extremely inclusive and supportive. Aside from having a significant number of out/self-identified LGBT students, I think what's even more impressive is the number of straight allies who are actively involved with Lambda and sincerely concerned with LGBT issues. It's really great. 

The same goes for Michigan.

2L job search / Re: Rescinding Offers
« on: October 23, 2008, 12:25:37 PM »
People aren't going to post the firms on ATL because its fairly easy to figure out who the blabber is and no one wants to @#!* her or his career.  I had a V50 firm call and dissuade me from accepting an offer b/c their class was full, but was careful to say that their offer was still good.  Definitely glad that I accepted another offer, though.

Does anyone know the toolish 1L posting on ATL re: getting a firm job on Dec 1.   If you do, please teach him/her a lesson on not being a feminine hygiene product.

THANKS!!

Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Re: BAD EXPERIENCE WITH TEMPLE

Good call on the not giving "legal advice," but his "case" with Temple's financial aid office is pretty weak as well.

He had already decided to attend before the whole scholarship mishap.

I got accepted to the school with no $ and had sent an email asking if they could re-consider. I got a message back saying there was nothing they could do and I resigned myself to that. I made up my mind about going there and having to borrow the max amount of loans for the 1st yr then I got my fin aid award letter in the mail teling me they were offering me 15,000 for the first year as a Law Faculty Scholarship.

The relevant issue is not whether he decided to attend before he got the scholarship offer.  The issue is whether the court believes he did.

Unless he formally declined the other offers before the scholarship offer, he could still potentially argue PE.  There's no way for the court or anyone else to read his mind regarding the ultimate decision unless he somehow made his intentions manifest.

For example, by posting them on an internet discussion board?

I don't see the point of doing a collective note...I mean, do you really think the recruiting person will get your note and then immediately email the hiring partners or whomever and tell them that you thanked her for having you at the callback?

The point of the note is not not sending a note.

Soooooo bummed that he came on a Friday during callback season. :(

ME TOO!!!!  and I made a point of saying that to like everyone I interviewed with on Friday"  "It's so disappointing to be interviewing today because..."

Those are some jobs I won't be getting!
