Job Search / Re: Pet Friendly Housing in DC?
« on: March 01, 2009, 05:46:07 PM »
2000 N St NW accepts dogs (not sure if there is a limit on size, there may be).  Its called The Flats and is in south Dupont (a few blocks from Farragut North and Farragut West (red line) metro stops).  All of my friends that live in DC that have dogs live in Dupont. 

I can't figure out whether they allow short-term leases, but that looks like a nice place in a great location.  I may have to check it out over spring break.

I'm not necessarily looking for a roommate, but I do need to find summer housing in DC or NOVA that accepts dogs (if anyone has any suggestions).

I am a prospective student having a 15K/yr scholarship to DePaul and maybe something to Loyola. So if it is much cheaper for me to go to DePaul, is Loyola still a better option because of the PLIP? DePaul has a ranked IP program and, at least on paper, seems stronger for IP than Loyola.

I don't belive you need to go to Loyala to attend the PLIP, I think its just held there, at least thats wthe way it is with other law carear fairs held at other schools.

Yes, PLIP is merely hosted by Loyola, and actually takes place at a nearby hotel.  Students from all schools are welcome, and I did not even notice a particular concentration of Loyola students.  The event should not affect your school decision at all.

LSD already contains plentiful material on callbacks.  Do a little searching or ask a more specific question.

I cannot stress this enough: GO, GO, GO the Loyola Patent Interview program. It is usually the last week in July. You ought to be able to get something out that. I will say that I got very little out of my schools local OCI, but most of those firms weren't very IP focused. There is also a pretty good one for the south east that is a few days before, if you want to work in the south east.

Yes, the Loyola PLIP is strongly recommended.  If you aren't landing anything good after callbacks from that, AIPLA has another interview event in late October.

you should be able to get big law or at least a good IP boutique, even ITE.

You'll have plenty of time to take care of a cat.

Ok, so reading all these threads about sending out 80-100 applications is making me really nervous. Is this for people trying to secure firm work? I'm looking public interest work, preferably something immigration or human rights related. How many applications should I be aiming to send out? I'm at a top 30 school, straight out of undergrand, but with a couple of internships. Also, would any one be willing to look at my resume, the career center is closed for break and i really want to send this out soon.

Also should I even bother trying to apply to firms this late in the game as I'm not at T14?

Why would you bother spamming firms if you aren't interested in firm work?  In this economy, and with your pedigree, you only have a very slim chance of landing anything in the private sector, and it seems hardly worth the effort if it's not what you want to do.
