I should be outlining (and so should all of you!)...  but if you'd like to know more about Vandy transfers, feel free to ask.

Job Search / Pet Friendly Housing in DC?

Job Search / Summer job and your pet?
« on: October 21, 2008, 04:28:57 PM »
I'll be moving to another city for the summer. I have a dog, and I was wondering if anyone else has brought their pet with them to the big city for the summer? I'd rather not leave her with friends/relatives, but I also think that not having to care for her over the summer will free me up more to participate in summer activities with the firm.

Any thoughts?

How are you transfers listing the change in the Educaton section on your resume?

I was thinking maybe something like this?

   Transferred after first year at XYZ SCHOOL OF LAW

XYZ SCHOOL OF LAW, City, State               
Attended DATE - DATE
   XYZ Journal of Underwater Basket Weaving Litigation Member
   Dean's List, Top X%.....

DFG College, City, State         
B.S. 2006 
   etc. etc. etc.

Thoughts? Any advice on this?

Transferring / Vandy or Texas
« on: July 19, 2008, 07:02:30 AM »
I'm pretty torn over this decision. Any thoughts? I've visited both schools.

I got a really good feel from Vandy, but I know Austin a little better and I have friends at UT. On the other hand, Vandy = more personal attention; whereas Texas = large state school. In looking at NALP, they get about the same number of firms recruiting there.

I'm not necessarily interested in practicing in TX (the big problem is that I don't know WHERE I want to practice; probably SE/NE). I was really impressed with Vandy's admin and career services, but I have a mtg with UT's career svcs on Monday.

Anyway, obviously at the end of the day you can't go wrong with either school, but I still want to make sure I pick the right environment for me. I've always gone to large public schools, so Vandy is very appealing as a welcome change. However, UT was my top choice when I applied to law schools. I don't have any family in TX, but I lived there for 2 years.

Is June 08 too early to start sending out resumes for June 09 2L summer jobs?

Job Search / help me compare my summer options
« on: March 24, 2008, 12:20:22 PM »
I'm interested in general feedback regarding some of my 1L summer work offer so far-->

1) Unpaid internship with an advocacy group on Capitol Hill. Flexible scheduling, incl. opp for split summer.
2) Unpaid internship with JAG in Northern VA
3) Paid Research Ass't w/a law professor at my law school in an area of personal interest w/in the law

I did find out from my school that I may be able to create an externship #1 and #2. (Previously I thought there weren't). However, I'll be paying out-of-state tuition for the privilege of taking out more loans. In addition, I will be continuing to pay rent on my apt at school for the summer (subleasing/breaking lease are not options). No family $ assistance available.

Of the three, which would you do? I'm just looking for other's perspective; it won't necessarily factor into my decision-- just curious. Thanks!
