1L job search / Weird Day
« on: February 05, 2008, 06:38:35 PM »
So I got an email today from the firm I wanted to work at since I was like 12.  It was just a general email saying they didn't hire many 1L's so sorry.  I sent a quick email back saying thanks for the consideration and what not.

I then got a call from the firm saying that they sent me that email by mistake.  They said I should be receiving a call from the recruiting coordinator soon. 

Any ideas on how positive this might be.  I figured if they were gonna offer me an interview they could of done it when they called and told me there was a mistake.  I am very excited and a little confused.  Any ideas on what to take of this situation.  I have a really good connection at this firm that is helping me out so I am hoping that they aren't just going to call to say no politely.

Transferring / How Quick does GULC make decisions
« on: January 25, 2008, 01:02:56 PM »
I was wondering if you get all of your application materials in on
Feb. 1st if anybody has experience as to how quick GULC will make
decisions. It seems in the past that most people get accepted in
early April but I was wondering if people ever got accepted in Feb. or
March? Thanks.

Transferring / Schools that Don't Rank
« on: January 24, 2008, 08:53:34 AM »
I am curious as to how you think GULC will look at you if your school
doesn't rank. I am interested in applying EA and earned a 3.95/4.0
this semester from a school ranked in the 50's. My concern though is
whether I should write a letter and tell them that our school doesn't
rank or what not. Also, our school publishes charts of where you
would fit on a ranking so if the past results are any indicator I am
probably #1 or #2 in the class. I just wish there was a way for me to
get this information across to GULC. Anybody have any ideas and
whether or not the no ranking policy is going to hurt my chances.

On a further not I am doing well in law school but my undergrad GPA
was only a 3.06 with a 159 on the LSAT. Is it possible that could
come back to bite me in the rear or will they really only look at my
law school grades. Thanks in advance for the help.

I have just written a rough copy of my reasons for wanting to transfer to Georgetown and was wondering if anybody would be willing to look it over.

Transferring / Transferring to GULC EA
« on: January 16, 2008, 11:07:45 PM »
Hey guys I just finished up my first semester at UPitt.  My GPA for the semester is a 3.95.  I was wondering what you thought my chances of getting into GULC EA were and whether there are any other schools out there worth considering.  Thanks in advance.

Pittsburgh / Grading at Pitt
« on: April 30, 2007, 10:55:50 PM »
Hey guys I am going to Pitt in the fall and was looking at the website the other day and it didn't seem like Pittsburgh gave a very strict rank of its students nor did it use much of a forced curve.  Am I wrong in this?  From the charts on their website it seemed that quite a few students got A's and am trying to figure out the grading method they use there.  Thanks for the help.
