General Board / breakup before/after bar exam?...
« on: May 20, 2011, 10:53:39 AM »
my boyfriend and i just graduated this week from law school.  i've realized that i want to break up with him for the past few weeks now, but because of not wanting to jeopardize his concentration on finals, and the joy of graduation on the horizon, i haven't had the guts to do so.  now that graduation is over though, we have the bar exam ahead... in 2 months.  things are fine between us, so it wouldn't be like we were staying together in a tumultuous relationship if i decided not to end it before then.  but on the other hand, i think it's unfair to me to remain unhappy and to him to not have a genuine relationship for the next 2 months... although again, i don't want to jeopardize his focus on the bar exam (and of course mine, if it turns out to be a bad breakup).  i fear that if i do break up with him before then, HE might even be like, "couldn't you have at least waited till after???" 

Extremely tormented.  Not sure what to do.  Advice?  What would YOU do???

i didn't care in july. come august, everyone at my school was manically obsessed and now i feel depressed about being a V-(XX) vs. V(Y).  i recognize it's shallow - but hard not to get sucked into.

General Board / how difficult is it to lateral transfer as an associate?
« on: August 18, 2009, 06:19:52 PM »
let's say you end up graduating from an HYSCC with latin honors, but summered and spent your first post-grad year or two working at a mid-sized law firm, then clerk for a year or two... is it somewhat easier to get a V10 than if you tried getting one of those as a mediocre-GPA'ed 1L?  (clearly i am talking about a hypothetical "friend" of mine.)

It seems like a bad ruling - is the dissent more significant than the majority here?
