anyone know much about this? how many people really get anything from this? when will i even find out if i get interviews? is it on a rolling basis, or will the symplicity system send all the applications to the organizations on the last day to apply? i am trying to make travel plans fo the week and keep thinking, i don't even know if i am going to have any interviews.

Hmm. Strange thing. I applied to a firm, did not get an initial screening interview, and then got a letter inviting me to a 1/2 day interview. So it's a callback. But I guess it's not really a call back since I never had an initial call. Has this happened to anyone else? Did they mess up in calling me back? I feel a bit weird about this.

So I have a few callbacks in a city I want to move to...I will do one on friday, and one on monday, as this works better with my school schedule and as I love this city and have people to visit. i won't even need a hotel. what i want to know is, what are thoughts on friday afternoon callbacks?? bad idea? i could go friday morning or friday afternoon. and what about monday? i feel like monday morning, people are sad the weekend is over, stressde, etc. but that is based on interviewing in other industries. again, i could go monday afternoon. the fternoon advanatge i see is that i sometimes stess out and have a hard time sleeping....so if i need to sleep til noon to be ready, i could, if the callback is at 2. Does any of this matter much in OCI? thanks!!

Don't laugh but I was wondering if anyone out there had a recommendation for a CD series to help me study for my Ethics class. I never bought the book (which is Nathan Crystal's on Prof Responsibility and Ethics) and just read it at the library. And I am taking the class in the summer, and the final is right after the July 4th weekend, which totally sucks. I am taking a few road trips before then and thought, maybe there is some audio supplement that will help....anything to help me get down the Model Rules will be great.

hi, i am a non trad. i am accepted at a good law school, i have a good scholarship, and i think i can make a law degree work for me. i took a law class last year and liked it immsensely.
but i am still not certain i want to be an atty. and today, i started reading all these other articles saying don't go to law school unless you know you want to be an atty, and about how many leave within five years, etc. i've read them before...but they are scarier to me now.
and now--the day i was going to tell my boss i was leaving--my heart is pounding.
My questions are, are most of you non trads 100 percent sure you want to practice law? am i too old (over 30) to pursue a JD if i am not certain i want to be a lawyer?
or maybe i am just freaking out b/c it's very real. i keep telling myself, i can leave law school if it's not right for me.

So according to the website they've made a decision...as of Feb. 28. But still no word as to what that decision might be. Each day I open my mail box slowly, ready for the thin white envelope. Yesterday I found a big white envelope from Golden Gate, encouraging me to apply despite the fact that the ABA just issued a warning against them b/c so few students of theirs pass the bar. That's encouraging!!
Any one else still waiting to hear from Georgetown, knowing a decision has been made? I am not optimistic...just reject me, already!!

American figure skater Matt Savoie is going to Cornell Law this fall. That's cool. I cannot imagine taking the LSAT, writing a presonal statement, and preparing for the Olympics. You think his essay was all about skating?
