2L job search / Re: Post Call-Back: How are you notified?
« on: September 26, 2007, 11:12:22 PM »
I got notified of an offer last Friday over the phone but the firm hasn't snail mailed me anything yet?  How long has it taken firms to send the follow up snail mail?

Just passed the patent bar so I'm putting up my study materials for sale on ebay here:

Course assumes you have no prior knowledge of patent prosecution ( I didn't).  Ideal for those planning to take the patent bar this summer.

Thanks.

Sort of off topic but I finally realized that Wentworth Miller, LEEWS founder, is the dad of Wentworth Miller, star of Fox's Prison Break.

Still waiting on Hastings. Some people that applied the same time I did not only managed to be put on the waitlist, but also to be accepted off it as well. 

My status checker is still listed as "ready to review."  A Craptacular Craptacular indeed. >:(

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Still waiting at Hastings?

Looks like the pace is picking up at Hastings.  A lot of applicants are getting waitlisted in the past 2-3 days. Not exactly the kind of movement I like to see but, hey, any movement on their part is good at this point right?

Magnolia-Boogie Nights is PTA's masterpiece.  Amores Perros dealt with the same issues using similar story telling techniques to better effect. Don't know why the fanboys love this overwrought, self-absorbed piece of cinematic turd.

Crash- Magnolia for the Star Bucks crowd.  It lifts--err pays homage to  Magnolia freely right down to the Aimee Mann inspired montage at the end.

Grand Illusion-Yes it's on almost every critic's top 10 list but it's also boring as hell.  Renoir's Rules of the Game is a much better film imo

I loved Death and the Maiden.  Doesn't he have a new movie coming out?  or did he and I'm just really behind?

Nope, Oliver Twist was his last movie.

What about Paul Haggis not for the overrated Crash and Million Dollar Baby, but for creating the show that resurrected Chuck Norris's career: Walker: Tejas Ranger!

I liked "The Ninth Gate", and it made me a fan of both illuminated manuscripts and Arturo Perez-Reverte, so Polanski gets a few points for that...

...but seriously, anyone who read the court docs on his rape charge wouldn't consider naming him for anything positive.  To sum: Young girl + photo shoot + drugs + wine + body part usually used for outgoing, not incoming.  As a dad, I'm not cool with it. 

Or should I say, as a human?

Chinatown, Knife in the Water and Rosemary's Baby is a list any director would kill for--not to mention Repulsion and the Tenant. He's been Mr. Irrelevant for the past 20 years (Pianist was highly overrated and I wouldn't consider it a typical Polanski film), but he's definitely top 10.

What about Altman--McCabe and Mrs. Miller, California Split, the Long Goodbye, Nashville, Short Cuts...the precursor to PT Anderson, Innaritu et al.

Law School Applications / Re: Getting SO sick of Davis status checker!
« on: April 23, 2006, 05:55:37 AM »
Just got into Davis (letter dated 4/20) today via snail mail.  Funny thing is, the status checker still lists my status as "evaluation in progress".  The last update, however, was on 4/17.
