1L job search / Advice needed on a cover letter to a solid contact...
« on: January 07, 2009, 12:27:12 PM »
I have a great contact at a local firm.  Going to do the standard "want to get together and discuss your area of the law".  Thought I would approach it from a 'looking for advice" angle (which I am - a summer gig would be great though).  Has anyone crafted a letter like this?  If there is any advice out there, let me know.  I'm stuck on tone, mostly -  Formal, informal, email, regular mail, send a resume or hold off...

Law School Applications / Deadline Question
« on: March 28, 2008, 05:13:04 PM »
Honest question here - I'm a semi-non traditional student whose choices are limited to where my wife gets offered a residence life position (so we can live rent free in the director's apt).  Obviously this makes for a hectic and somewhat unpredictable app cycle - I've been applying since October and just sent my most recent today.

Anyway, she's just been contacted for a 3rd on campus interview for an on campus res life position at a school I would theoretically have(under normal circumstances) a near 100% chance of being accepted to.  Unfortunately, the law school's app deadline (per lsac) was 3/15.   Anyone have any reccommendations or have any experience with this type of situation - anyone ever heard of exceptions being made?  It's a T3 with a good local reputation and my wife and I both consider it a potentially ideal situation.  It's just too bad it came so late - anything?  Anyone?  (aside from "wait a year")
