Current Law Students / GRE v. LSAT

Anyone who has taken both - how do they compare?

Job Search / How are you wearing your hair for interviews?

Just curious as to how everyone is wearing their hair for interviews.  I know it is recommended to wear hair back, but is this a must?

Job Search / Working Part-Time During School Year
« on: August 25, 2005, 03:04:08 PM »
Those students who are working part-time during the school year, how many hours a week do you work, how many days?

Current Law Students / Working 2nd Year
« on: June 30, 2005, 08:25:06 PM »
How difficult is it to work 2nd year and still have enough time to study to get good grades?

How many hours a week do 2nd years typically work?

Do you continue working even during finals or do employers give you time off for that?

Current Law Students / Bank One Education One Loans
« on: June 12, 2005, 06:05:18 PM »
Does anyone have any experiences to share or comments on the Bank One Education One student loans?  I am apprehensive about taking on more loans, especially private ones, but I am taking classes this summer and doing an externship and I can already tell that I am not going to have enough money to get through until the fall semester starts.  Getting a job is out as I will only have 2 weeks free after I finish my externship before I start another class, which is 1.5 weeks long, and then after that only about 2.5 weeks before fall semester starts.  I think I would only need to borrow about $2,000. 

Job Search / Interview Questions
« on: February 16, 2005, 11:08:49 AM »
I just learned I was selected for an interview for spring OCI.  Anyone who has already been interviewing, do you have any tips?  What are the typical questions you have been asked?  Will they look at my grades and question why I did better in one class as opposed to another?

Current Law Students / Fatigue
« on: February 11, 2005, 05:27:05 PM »
Has anyone had any problems with fatigue?  If so, have you found a solution?  I get really tired each day at around late afternoon and it affects my concentration.  Then finally I start to get over it and can focus again.  Any suggestions?  Does exercise really work?

Current Law Students / Outlining
« on: February 11, 2005, 05:24:21 PM »
What is everyone's approach to outlining?  Do you outline weekly, after the end of a topic, every few weeks?  How do you fit it into your schedule?  I had trouble last semester trying to fit everything in. I am trying to outline as I go along now, but it is hard to do everything.  I want to continue briefing the cases and focusing on legal writing assignments.  It seems I can't give everything the attention I would like to.  Any suggestions?

Job Search / Judicial Externship
« on: January 22, 2005, 10:48:40 AM »
Which would be more impressive when looking for a 2L summer job next year: doing a judicial externship this summer in a federal district court or one in the state supreme court?  Do you think doing a judicial externship will look better than a law firm job?

Current Law Students / Book Briefing
« on: January 19, 2005, 07:55:27 PM »
Just curious, are any 1L's now only book briefing cases?  I have still been typing them out.  When is the usual time to begin book briefing?
