Bar Exam Preparation / Examsoft issue- speakers
« on: July 23, 2009, 04:38:07 PM »
I downloaded the ExamSoft software and did a practice test on it.  Ever since then, my speakers and headphone jack don't put out audio.  I've tried adjusting my speaker settings, to no avail.  My headphones work fine on my MP3 player, so I know it's not they're not broken.  Anyone else dealt with this?

Job Search / Equal Justice Works Career Fair

Anyone else applying for post-grad jobs through this thing?  Looks like most employers are only looking for summer interns though.

Job Search / Non-BigLaw Summers: where are you going?
« on: April 11, 2008, 12:23:03 PM »
Just curious about the range of work here for people who aren't going the BigLaw Summer Associate route.

I'm going to be interning at a small boutique firm in DC.  You?

Job Search / Fellowships?

Just curious-Who's applied to summer fellowships?  Which one, and how are you doing in that process?

Job Search / Anyone get a summer position yet?
« on: December 06, 2005, 07:22:59 PM »
I got an offer for a summer position yesterday afternoon.  Don't know if I'll take it though since work-study or a stipend is not guaranteed....

Anyone else?

Transferring / Possible to transfer without grades/rank?
« on: June 29, 2005, 10:07:33 AM »
I'm going to be starting law school this Fall but am very torn about which school to choose. I was waitlisted at my dream schools and so I think I have a decent shot of being accepted as a transfer if I do well in 1L.

For now, I'm deciding between Northeastern and two other schools (a similarly-ranked school and a T4 w/$$$). Most people are telling me to go to Northeastern, but since they don't have letter grades (the infamous "narrative evaluations") or class rank, I'm not sure if there's any way for me to apply for transfer. What do you guys think?

Current Law Students / Summer Associateship AND night classes?
« on: May 10, 2005, 11:06:44 AM »
I'm considering applying for a part-time program out of state and transferring to full-time in 2L.  That would require that I take 6 credits of summer school courses (night) and make up another 2 credits later on. 

My question is this: do you guys think that I can perform well both on the job and in classes considering that this is half-time credits? 

Since I'm not in law school yet, I'm not sure if it's possible to do the majority of schoolwork on the weekends.  I know that summer associates are asked to put in long hours, but do you think firms might be flexible in this situation? 

I'm glad that my school has a good proportion of non-trads.  It seems that a lot of BigLaw firms seem to prefer students who went to law school immediately after undergrad.  I don't know if they consider them more "trainable" or more likely to fit into that type of culture for some reason.  What do you guys think about that? 

Also, did anyone see this article about Summer Associates making as much as $3K per week?
Now, I don't mind that in theory, but it does bother me that this is the first real world experience a lot of these interns have, and I think they come out with a skewed sense of reality.  Can't stand the entitlement either.  Found that firm's motto "When Experience Matters" a touch ironic as well.

Financial Aid / How much difference does a co-signer make?
« on: August 18, 2005, 03:47:47 PM »
Trying to decide whether or not I should ask my parents to co-sign.  I'd rather not (independent streak), but I'd like to know how much money it might save me.

I have good credit (low to mid 700s), and have earned no less than $50K/year in the last 3 years but just recently quit my job.  I do still have about $10K of undergrad loans though, but I don't know if that makes a difference.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Who to e-mail last plea to?
« on: August 16, 2005, 08:21:22 PM »
I want to let a school know that although their orientation has started, I'm still interested if a seat opens up either now or next week when classes really start. 

I've been corresponding with the "Assistant Dean of Admissions" since that's who wrote my notice of deferral.  However, I'm wondering who to e-mail this last plea to.  I see from the staff Directory that there is also a Director of Admissions.  Which title is higher or has more weight in the decision?
