I haven't been on here since before I started law school, but here goes.

I'm a 2L at a very good local school. I didn't do OCI because I am not top 20% of my class. I'm not going to get into deets about my class rank because it's pretty horrendous. However, I've worked on my resume through jobs, externships, clinics, and it's quite solid.

I submitted my resume online for this entertainment company in CA. They have a summer associate legal program in house. I submitted the CL and Resume on a whim, and got a phone interview in the midst of my fall semester finals. The recruiter told me everything should be decided by the beginning of February. I submitted the extra paperwork (company's) as requested, and have been waiting/following up since.

Last time I called to follow up, a few weeks ago, she told me that some of the divisions were just crawling and they were way behind, and thanked me for following up. This recruiter I think is in charge of ALL their summer programs - grad AND undergrad.

This is still a top choice of mine for summer. What's a good way to follow up if I want to call in tommorrow?

I have a friend at Baylor. She told me quite a few have transferred out to UT, GWU and a few other schools.
Good luck!

Transferring / Transferring to Fordham
« on: January 03, 2006, 12:11:44 PM »
I attend a respectable T2 in NYC, but when applying to schools last fall Fordham was my top choice for many reasons. I don't know my grades yet except for Legal Research/Writing, where I was below the curve and pretty upset, but it was only worth 1 credit hour.

Does anyone have any insight to what it would take to transfer to Fordham? One of the reasons I'd like to transfer is the joint JD/MBA program.

Look in Law School Confidential. I bought those, and they're working out far...whatever value that holds.  :-\

Great thread!

So how much time should we budget for the first memo? Mine is due in Mid-Oct and I plan on beginning this week. Thoughts?

Transferring / After the transfer...

Ok, I decided if possible I'd like to transfer. My question is after the transfer, how hard is it to get "in" with your class? Law school is def not social hour, but its always good to have a few peers you can depend on. Any successful transfers have any insight?

TXAggie99 -- actually it depends on your school. If you go to a t2 and want to transfer to a higher t2 or lower t1 i think 15-20% is okay. To get to HYS-CCN you gotta be at the top of your class, like the first 5 ppl.
