How good is this place? I have heard good things, but I'd like to hear from some more people...

Different firms seem to require different things -

All firms ask for Resume + Cover Letter

Some ask for transcript

Some ask for UGrad transcript

Some ask for writing sample

Some ask for a combination of the above.

Is it an autoding if you don't include some of the above materials if asked? It would be very difficult to mass-mail firms if I have to individually prepare every packet with different items. Advice?

Has anyone gone abroad in Law School? Do you think it was worth it?

[Edit - I started this thread as a post regarding my individual situation, but Botbot posted a wonderful response that anyone could use, so I decided to open the thread up to any and all 2L job search questions or advice. Good luck to everyone with your searches!]


Grades are out, and Bears is ballpark-ish top 30-40% 1L at BU Law. Not the smartest person in the class, but certainly smarter than the average Bears.

As LSD gunners know, BU is a T20 school, so it's not too bad. Bears won't know if bears wrote onto law review or journal for at least a month. Bears also won't know his moot court status until the middle of 2L year. Bears has a lot of litigation experience as a paralegal at V10 firms and prestigious government agencies. Bears has a summer job at a prestigious government agency right now.

Bears is starting to prepare for OCI and the hiring season. Bears' goal is to litigate at a reasonably high level and pay off his student loans. Bears wants to avoid ID work and temping if at all possible, and he is willing to do practically anything to make that happen.

Primarily, Bears plans to target the market between NYC, Boston and Albany. Bears would also like to try to get a gig in Florida becuause Bears is a fan of pina coladas and enticing female bears from Cuba.

Bears needs your advice! What would you do if you were a Bears?

Come here! I need some helps!

EDIT: Ok, fine, I will state my question, because I feel like my thread is being dismissed for failure to state a claim. (12b6)


If I am the last kid in my class at T25 school, will I be able to get some crummy PI job in a third-market city, or is my life over?

Long time no post. Wanted to say hi to old LSD pals. Hope everyone's doing well!  :)

So it looks like Bears qualify for Prime Rate Private loans, which are actually lower than Stafford and GradPlus. Too good to be true? Maybe - It turns out that private student loans are all adjustable rate - pegged to prime. So what are bears to do?

Take the 6% private adjustable loans, or go for the 6.8% Stafford/7.9%GradPlus loans?

How often does prime fluctuate? How likely is prime to become more than 7.9% in the next decade or so?

Goddamit I shouldn't need a CPA to go to school! >=(

Well? What should I do?  ???

You can vote for several options!

Anyone who gets me into T14 gets a cookie*!

*Cookies will be provided by Costco, supply limited by how much money Bears have. Milk not included with purchase.
