1L job search / What is the best thing to do this summer?
« on: January 24, 2008, 09:32:37 AM »
I am a p/t lL hoping to transfer to f/t in the fall.
I'm torn. Is working the best way to spend the summer? I will take a couple of courses. Should I try to go abroad to study? (a possibility) Should I look for an internship?

Any insights or experiences will be appreciated.

thanks

General Board / study groups - 1L
« on: November 25, 2007, 08:34:31 PM »
I know it's late, but I have been unable to decide about joining a study group.

How common/necessary are these groups at most law schools? I am studying day and night, but am I really losing out by not working within a group.

comments?
thanks

General Board / Understanding the Curve
« on: April 01, 2007, 02:09:19 PM »
I'm going to be a 1L in the fall, and am uncertain about the curve.
I need to maintain a 3.0 to keep my aid. I think of this as a B in college, but know this is not the case.

How difficult is a 3.0, and if the law school adjusts the curve (which I understand frequently happens), do I want it to get higher or lower?

Is there an F for every A?
That's downright scarey.

Thanks

General Board / p/t - Day or Evening
« on: March 25, 2007, 02:40:50 PM »
I have been offered part time didn't get in full time.
It is one of my top choices.

Any experiences out there with day, or evening p/t?
Any real differences (other than time?)

Where should I go next fall? / What's happening with waitlists?
« on: May 22, 2007, 03:41:57 PM »
I've noticed Harvard, UPenn, UVA, and a couple of Calif schools have been going to them.

Any updates or news out there for other T100 schools that have indicated they would or wouldn't go to them?

I'm still waiting and hoping on a couple. ;)

Where should I go next fall? / When do waitlists move?
« on: May 03, 2007, 11:46:40 AM »
With all the discussions about low app numbers this cycle, and law schools going to the WL, when can we expect this to happen. Most seat deposits were due around April 15.

Any WLs moving yet? ???

Where should I go next fall? / WL at Miami

On hold, then waitlisted.

Does anyone know if they have gone to the waitlist in the last few years, and how many got in?
