Current Law Students / Law School Loans
« on: February 02, 2011, 12:33:57 PM »
Any out of state students that have graduated or about to graduate ---

What will the total amounts of your loans be?

Exclude mortgages.
Include things like public student loans, private loans, bar loans, car loans, family loans, and undergrad loans.

Curious about how others are faring.

Bar Exam Preparation / MEE Scoring
« on: July 21, 2009, 05:27:56 PM »
Can anyone here give me some insight on MEE and MPT scoring in most states.  In my state, 276 is the score needed to pass the bar, but I can't find information on scoring essays.  What is the maximum possible score for each essay and MPT?  What are realistic average scores?

The Barbri answer are ridiculous, but what level of knowledge is necessary for the non-MBE subject MEE's?

Job Search / State District Court Clerkships
« on: June 08, 2009, 04:56:29 PM »
Hey all,

I am a recent graduate of a T1 school, and I graduated in the top 1/3 of the class (for background).  Yesterday I was offered a state district court clerk position.  I have read some other threads here about state district court positions, but I was wondering if they are generally looked down upon because they aren't federal or state appellate level court jobs.  Is this still a good job to take?  Where would you rank it compared to a big/medium firm job, a small firm job, a federal government job, and the military?

Job Search / Federal Honors Programs or other hiring
« on: April 30, 2009, 02:17:52 PM »
Hey guys,

I was recently screwed by a federal agency for a job (offer taken back -- not my fault).  Now I am in the very tough position of finding a job this late in the process.  Does anyone know of any federal agencies that are still hiring through honors programs?  I know that most ended in October or November unfortunately.

If not, do you know of any other federal agencies that are hiring entry-level attorneys still?


Current Law Students / PMBR + Barbri?
« on: March 27, 2009, 04:25:06 PM »

I am having trouble finding a search button on these forums, so I'll just ask this question again.  I am taking the bar in July.  Would you recommend taking Barbri and the Kaplan PMBR?  If so, which PMBR (e.g. 3 day, 6 day, 9 day)?


Job Search / FBI Summer Honors Internship
« on: October 23, 2007, 07:37:05 PM »
Hey, I have read some about the F.B.I. Summer honors program here on the forums.  I have a few questions I will throw out.

1)  After a call-back, are chances pretty good for an offer?
2)  Is this a summer position that would allow for a different career path after law school, or would I be choosing a path by working in D.C.
3)  Overall opinions of the position, good or bad?

Current Law Students / LR/ LJ
« on: August 03, 2007, 07:21:11 AM »
So I didn't make Law Review or Law Journal heading into my 2L year.  Does this put me in a really bad position?  They absolutely drill into our heads that employers mostly require one or the other.

Current Law Students / Contracts II/ Sales Flow Charts
« on: May 06, 2007, 09:44:56 PM »

I have scoured the internet and I cannot find flow charts that apply specifically to a Contracts II class that is dealing with the UCC only.  Anyone have a set they could share?  If they are your personal ones, I will give a small reward!



Job Search / Clerkship not in career field
« on: March 28, 2007, 04:49:20 PM »

I was offered a clerkship for my 2L year with a local judge.  The judge handles cases in an area of law that is very different from my area of interest (international law).  Would this type of experience still look good on a resume?  Is this something you would consider during your 2L year?


Job Search / US Attorney

What do you guys think of the US Attorneys office for first year summer?
