2L job search / Re: Callback interviews
« on: September 20, 2006, 09:17:14 PM »
I have to say I send thank you notes and I don't think they hurt at all especially if you think that a firm might be a bit of a reach.  I haven't gotten the callback yet, but yesterday I got a personal response to my thank you letter (i just send email) that was very positive about my credentials and telling me that they would be in touch with me soon.  I mean obviously we are all adults and you do need to proof read, but sending a quick email showing that you paid attention during the interview never hurts.

Transferring / Re: Transferring to a high Tier 1 from a low Tier 1
« on: March 12, 2006, 06:00:03 PM »
So I currently go to a low ranked Tier 1 on the east coast and am seriously considering going back to California.  I like my school but the more I think about it longterm I want a job in California.  I'm currently in about the top quarter of my class (and just didn't make moot court boo!) what are my chances of making it into UCLA or USC?  Is there really any point in trying.  I'm debating whether to study abroad this summer and if I did I couldn't transfer so I'm trying to decide what to do.

I really would like to know why one cannot do both a summer study abroad and transfer to a different law school?

FYI: From what I hear USC practically does not take any transfer applicants while to get in at UCLA would depend on where you school is ranked (by lower tier 1, do you mean closer to the 100s or the 50s?). If you are closer to the 100s then you would probably need to be in at least 10%.

Basically I can't do a study abroad because that would be too many credits to transfer, I'd essentially be throwing away all the money I'd have to pay for the summer study abroad.  I also think there would be other complications with accepting to the other school and dropping out of my school.  My school is in the 40's.

American / Re: anyone decided on american for '05?

Yeah I remember them giving some sort of reasoning, of course I can't remember.  But I think it was along the lines of the 2L and 3L's were off working and that sort of thing so much it worked better for the schedules to get all the classes in M-T.  I was there on a Friday and even though there were no classes there were tons of students around, studying and that sort of thing so I don't think it's quite as great as it sounds, but still 3 days a week to sleep in.

Well I did go to the admitted students day on like no sleep because I took the red eye, so I may be off.  Maybe it's just spring with no classes on Friday, because there were no classes on when I was there and I remember them mentioning that and how they sort of get three day weekends, but then again that might be for 2L and 3L's.

I might be remembering this wrong, but I think I asked that on my tour and classes start about 10 and I don't think there are any classes on Fridays.

I think if you re read your own post you'd realize what a complete and utter a-hole you are. 

And as for my post, someone asked if anyone had a serious relationship that sustained through law school, I had a friend who did, so I shared.  So if my post was complete and utter dribble what exactly was yours?

Hey I was actually in almost the same boat.  My decision came down to Loyola and American too.  I live in Santa Barbara right now so it's a huge move for me too.  American definitely isn't in the heart of DC, but it's in a very nice, if very boring, part of town.    I'm definitely a little freaked out about moving so far away, especially since its not like college and I actually have furniture and a car.  I sort of figured either way I'm moving and whether its an hour or two away or the other side of the country the only real difference will be I'll get to see my friends here a little more often.  Still have to move, still won't know anyone, sure it would have been easier, but other than that it all kind of boils down to being the same.

That's cool, yeah I didn't really realize you could do a semester program in law school, I thought it was pretty much only summer, but I guess in the 2nd and 3rd year you're pretty much free to do what you want. That might be a good idea because then you won't miss out on all the recruiting stuff that happens during summer jobs.
