General Off-Topic Board / Interview Questions
« on: September 09, 2010, 11:02:18 AM »
Just seeking some advice on how to answer some typical interview questions. One question that I frequently get is, "where do you see yourself in 5 years?" Well, I just graduated law school and I am waiting for my bar results. The truth is that I don't know where I see myself in 5 years. If I get a good job now, I will stay there. If I get a crappy job, I will look for another or go solo. I basically just want to get my career started. But, that is obviously not something I would say in an interview.

Any advice on this question or does anyone have any other questions they hear frequently?

Transferring / IP Electives or Bar related courses?
« on: August 10, 2008, 01:41:23 AM »
I am a 2l and my school does not require several courses that are tested on the Texas Bar, such as Evidence, Wills and Trust, etc... I am interested in IP and Real Property law. Should i just take all property related courses or should i take more Bar related courses? Could I just rely on the Bar prep course after graduation to learn what I need for the Bar? I am worried that if i take all property classes that I might not be prepared for the Bar. Any suggestions?

Transferring / T4 to T1
« on: August 09, 2008, 07:44:39 PM »
I am giving up top 5% rank, free tuition, and Moot Court at Texas Southern University to transfer to the University of Houston Law Center. I may be able to make Moot Court this year, but will have to re-earn my rank and scholarships. Is it really worth transferring? Texas Souther is a T4 and UH is T1 - #55.
