3L job search / Applying to the FBI
« on: April 02, 2007, 03:56:30 PM »
I am considering applying to the FBI for a special agent position, but am unsure how this will affect my ability to practice law in the future.  I wonder whether spend ing 3-5 years in the FBI as a special agent will hurt or help me if I decide to practice law after those 3-5 years.  Working as a special agent isn't exactly practicing law, but it is a very prestigious position and is law related.  Any thoughts?

3L job search / Army JAG
« on: December 14, 2006, 11:24:50 AM »
I grew up an Army brat and am interested in applying to the Army's JAG Corps upon graduation.  Just a quick question for anyone who may know, does the Army allow JAGs to go to Airborne and Ranger school?  If so, how hard is it to get that opportunity for a JAG?  Thanks for the help.

L.L.M. Board / LL.M. advice needed
« on: October 19, 2006, 09:06:50 AM »
Well, the moment I have feared has finally come to pass.  Let me explain via a brief history.  I graduated undergrad magna cum laude.  I took the LSAT without studying (I know, very stupid) and scored a 158.  Instead of taking it again I decided to just go to school where I could get in (again, not so smart).  I am currently a 3L at Suffulk University Law in Boston and desire to pursue a career as a constitutional scholar and hopefully law professor.  Considering Suffolk Law is not a top 15 I am very aware that I will need a LL.M. from one of the top schools in order to make myself marketable.  So, with my academic history in mind, are Yale and Harvard pretty much out of the question?  I do know Professor Akhil Amar of Yale fame and might be able to get a good rec from him.  Could this possibly counteract my lack of an Ivy J.D.?  Finally, I would prefer to go straight from law school to an LL.M. program, but am willing to work first; would my chances of admission be higher if I worked for a few years and then applied?  As far as the schools I am interested in, it seems to me that only the top LL.M. programs would serve the dual purpose of education and upgrading my pedigree, but if I a wrong in this assumption let me know.  Thanks for the help and any advice you can throw my way.

Studying and Exam Taking / Crunch Time
« on: October 25, 2004, 12:55:15 PM »
I am a first year law student and while I have briefed all of the assigned cases via hilighters, I have not yet begun my outlines.  I typically spend 3-4 hours a day on course work.  I feel like I should be getting ready for exams in the near future.  When should I begin outlining?  Does anyone have any other advice?  Thanks for the help.
