Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Fordham wait list

Just heard from Fordham and
I am off the wait list.

This complicates my decision process in a very nice way.

Incoming 1Ls / Working for a firm as a 1L
« on: June 18, 2007, 04:43:26 AM »
I have an opportunity to work for a law firm as a 1L.  Its a good firm and seems like a good opportunity (salary is good, support for school), but they want 1650 hours billable from me.  Is it insane to try to make it through the first year part time with this load?  Does anyone have any experience with this type of work load during school? 

I really appreciate the opportunity, but dont want to set myself up for failure.


Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Rutgers N vs. George Mason

I am accepted at GMU and RU-N (with scholarship money and in-state).  I would like to practice in the NY area although I hear great things about DC and will have an open mind if I head down the coast. 

IP is my specialty (based on work experience to date).

Is this a clear win for GMU?  Based on rankings I would say yes, but because of the hassle of moving down to DC (and the vast difference in expense) I would like to get additional input.
