I'm crestfallen.  I love the Cardinals.  Anyone remember the famous SI cover with Kurt Warner and "who is this guy"?  I was hoping to see another one of those.

I do!

1L job search / Re: Does the set-up of the interview mean anything?
« on: December 24, 2008, 02:53:52 PM »
Congrats.  That's similar to what I had in a secondary market, and it's generally called a "callback."  After the lengthy interview(s), they'll decide whether to extend you an offer for 1L summer, skip next year's callback and give you a possible 2L offer, or ding you for the time being.

I enjoyed my callback.  Just take it easy and try to connect with the interviewers.  Talk about what they want to talk about.  In one interview, I talked to the guy about a small town in my home state, but it turns out we both know the area well.

Just sent you a PM.

General Board / Re: What is the interview to offer ratio?
« on: December 23, 2008, 03:37:39 PM »
They used to say that it was 50-60% callback to offer ratio for 2Ls, but it was NOT that this year.  I went about 50% (admittedly applying to top firms in places where I had no geographic connection) with good resume from a T14 school.  Last year I went 80% callback to offer ratio (as a 1L).  It was a crapshoot this year for 2Ls, and it's ALWAYS a crapshoot for 1Ls.

i was 2/3 1L year, 4/5 2L year.

cool thx. i figured it would be a crapshoot.

MPC? ........I'm not up on the lingo.

"MPC"="Modern Penal Code"

This link explains it:

Thanks :D. i'm familiar with the Modern Penal code.... but not the abbreviation

Really?  That's interesting.  I've never met someone who knows the MPC and never seen the abbreviation. 



Really? That is interesting. i've never met someone who knows the abbreviations of everything they've heard before.
