Bar Exam / Examsoft issue- speakers
« on: July 23, 2009, 06:38:07 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?

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

2L job search / Non-BigLaw Summers: where are you going?
« on: April 11, 2008, 02:23:03 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?

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

1L job search / Anyone get a summer position yet?
« on: December 06, 2005, 09:22:59 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, 12:07:33 PM »
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?

Illinois Institute of Technology / Part-timers?
« on: May 11, 2005, 01:05:28 PM »
To current or incoming part-timers:  What are the advantages/disadvantages to part-time?  Are there any differences in the quality of education, career opportunities, general outside perception, etc. between the full-time and night divisions?

I was deferred from full-time so I'm now considering the part-time decision.  This is a big decision for me since I would be moving from out of state, but I really like Kent's curriculum.

Any insights would be appreciated!

General Board / Summer Associateship AND night classes?
« on: May 10, 2005, 01:06:44 PM »
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.
