Job Search / Are expenses covered for most out of town call backs?

Are expenses covered for most out of town call backs? I have been reading about people getting their hotels, airfare, meals, taxi's covered by the interviewing firm etc, I have read on some firms websites their policy on this subject and I assume it would be widespread in Biglaw situations. What have your experiences been?

How many ABA law schools have paths of entry for people with no undergrad degree? I know our favourite whipping boy Cooley does, but I am curious to know if there are any others, I would assume that they would of the T3/T4 type.

Current Law Students / A few law school questions
« on: October 04, 2008, 09:24:08 AM »
I have any a few law school questions that if anyone could provide some info on it would be great.

1. Does Tier 2 still exist, it looks like US News has made all Top 100 schools Tier 1 and the rest Tier 3 and 4.

2. Without an assigned score on the ranks how do they give one school a Tier 3 ranking and another Tier 4?

3. Why do a lot of people refer to the group T14, how do the top 14 schools get grouped and not say top 15?

Just a few thoughts that crossed my mind

A friend of mine goes to a mid-range T3 school but due a close family connection have been afforded an opportunity to work at a V10 firm during the summer,He is a little bit torn about this because in reality he would never qualify for such a position in any other circumstance.

Do you think taking it could hurt him in the future because mid to small firms could be scared off by seeing such a firm on the resume especially if he were not asked back by the such V10 firm, wondering what happened, I assume in most circumstances 2L summer students at V10 firms at least get an offer to stay on after school, I mean money is not an issue with firms at this level.

One question do biglaw firms have students beyond their student program?

Any insight into this situation would be great.
