Does anyone have any information on either of these 1L summer internships? Which is more prestigious? What are the pros and cons of each?

Current Law Students / JD MBA?
« on: July 18, 2005, 06:04:18 AM »
Anyone out there considering a JD MBA?  What are your thoughts on the dual degree in terms of career path?

Yes, I've heard the argument about sacrificing one year of salary to finish the mba but what about salary after a few years in biglaw?  Assuming that one goes into biglaw, my initial thoughts are that salaries are pretty similar for the first few years.  However, what if you jump to an in-house corporate counsel position?  Does the mba help?  Does it help you get paid more??  I believe this is the point where a jd mba becomes compelling...

Thanks for your thoughts.

Choosing the Right Law School / If you were on the waitlist...

Hey everyone,
If you were on the waitlist for your top school of choice, and you were visiting the school, what kinds of questions would you ask?  I guess its pretty obvious that I'm this situation, but I'm not really sure what I should be talking about when I go in.  What is the standard protocol for these waitlist visits?  Do you sit down with someone from the admissions committee and actually go over your application package?  Aside from the standard school tour, what else can I do to improve my chances of being admitted?

Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Seton Hall Admitted Students Day
« on: April 08, 2005, 05:42:12 PM »
Did anyone else go to Seton Hall's Admitted Student's Day today?  What were your thoughts/concerns?

Here's my take:
The Dean and Assistant Dean seem nice and genuinely committed to the School's future.  Does anyone else feel an induced false sense of security about the program?  I dunno.  Maybe its my spider sense...

The Tort Professor was very interesting.  He gave a brief overview of what a tort is, and engaged the class in a healthy discussion about the nature of liability.  Good communicator and hopefully an actual example of what students will experience this Fall.

The tour of the school was ok.  Nothing spectacular, except for the large number of windows that allow for lots of sunshine (when the sun actually shines in Newark..)  The library seems a bit small for the twelve-hundred or so students that are currently enrolled there.  The building is quite nice though = )

Housing seems adequate, although a bit on the expensive side due to the School's proximity to Manhattan. 

And most of important of all, JOBS actually do exist during and after graduation.  The School seems to offer quite a few opportunities for externhips and clinics.  I don't know what a successful student might actually make in terms of salary because only 45% of graduates responded in the US News survey. 

What did you guys think?  Have you decided to go based on what you saw today? 

Choosing the Right Law School / Seton Hall

Anybody familiar with the Seton Hall campus?  How about the surrounding area?  I'm trying to decide between Hofstra and Seton Hall, but I haven't heard great things about the Seton Hall neighborhood.  What do you guys think?   ???
