Job Search / Brooklyn DA's Office
« on: March 22, 2006, 03:50:24 PM »
Anyone heard anything positive or negative about Brooklyn DA's office or what to expect interning at DA's office in general? Looking for an opportunity to learn a lot and also get clinic credit. My school does not give clinic credit for work in most private firms so that narrowed the list considerably. I have a lot of other letters out but started a little late and just think it might be easier to accept this and have that out of the way considering finals, brief, and orals are all coming up? What do you think? Oh I only have a couple of days to decide before they offer to someone else - and I doubt I will get any calls backs or interviews that quickly. So basically -- take it or don't and HOPE something else decent comes along?

I am so happy!!! Just got the call that I got in off the WL for PT. I wanted FT but that is ok!!!! Brooklyn was my first choice so I will take anything!!!! Now I will just have to work my rear end off so I can have a chance to transfer into FT after 1L!!!! Oh and don't worry I will notify my Hofstra of my intend to withdraw!!!!! Good Luck EVERYONE!!!!

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Rutgers-Newark Frustration!

Ok...I know other schools do it too but what is with schools randomly sending out acceptances to people who did not even care to apply to them and offer scholarship money, when they have a million people on the waitlist!!!! I was deferred then moved to wait list! When I call, they give me the run around (which I do not, as a rule, call much at all because I do not want to be annoying, only when I have a legitimate question) Well I know this is so bitter but I am so ready for this process to be over...Congrats to the person on LSN who got the offer....just wish they would wake up and see that they do not have to pay people to go there when there are people like me who want to pay THEM!!! oh has been a bad week...sorry for the whining...just gotta do it sometime!

Choosing the Right Law School / Anyone heard from Rutgers-Newark WL?

Sorry could not find the old thread to revive but just wondered if anyone has heard about any possible WL movement. I heard possibly after July 1st because of that was the final date to request a deposit refund...guess no spots opened up?

Hey just wanted to see if any brave souls had called or heard any updates on possible WL this point I will even take rumors! JK

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / St. John's Waitlist....
« on: June 27, 2005, 07:16:39 AM »
I called to make sure that Columbia had sent my final graduate transcript and the lady said..."I noticed you only want to be considered for day, that will damper your chances"...this to me could mean to things....
1. The chance of getting off waitlist may be smaller this year (as of this point)
2. Or it confirms a suspicion that I have had, if you don't mark you want to be considered for everything you kind of get knocked down a few notches...I hope this is not the case because I really like St. John's and it is not that I won't do anything to go there, it is just I have already been accepted with money to several other schools for full-time and I would rather go and then if I hate it transfer after my first year....

Now that I have written a book...anyone heard anything or have any thoughts on this exchange?

Well we sat here together every day praying for a miracle...but I have to say that the time has come to concede defeat....I wish you all luck with your other choices! Let's do great wherever we go and make them sorry for overlooking us!

I had to leave early and did not get to go on the tour...did anyone go on the tour? and if so what did you think of the facilities? Also is anyone thinking of attending and commuting from NYC? I am and just want to see what other people think about it.

Choosing the Right Law School / Rutgers-Newark- The Land of Indecision

Anyone else still waiting to hear from them? I don't want to call because the concensus is that their office staff is not welcoming of status calls but it seems like forever! Well I guess I should count my blessings that at least no rejection yet. So far the luck as not been on my side, guess I should not have waited to until early January to apply! They were the first to go complete and the last...and my first choice because of their Global Legal Studies program and it seems like forver! A lot of people are still pending on lsn...are any of you out there? Or gotten brave enough to call and see what the hold up is?
