1L job search / slightly personalized rejection letter
« on: March 11, 2007, 12:13:45 PM »
ok so i got a letter in the mail yesterday from a dallas firm. they used the name of my law school. they told me to contact them in the summer and let them know if i was going to be in town as well as to send them my resume as soon as it comes in.

Does anyone think this is actually a good sign or is it just a form letter that they type law school names into to be nice?

1L job search / Landman or lawyer at oil and gas firm question
« on: January 26, 2007, 06:33:28 PM »

General Board / grades
« on: January 19, 2007, 04:31:40 PM »
I got an A in Contracts

I got an A in Con law

I got a B- in civil procedure

I got a C in torts.

I knew when i walked out that i aced contracts. i thought i would get a B in Con law. I thought I would get an A in civil procedure and a B- in torts. 

Its weird that a class i thought i nailed i got a B- in while one i thought i blew i got an A in. I am fine with all of my grades except for the B- in civ pro. I really felt like i knew everything. As for the C in torts. I just misread a question. Ill take the hit for that. Oh well just thought i would share.
