Job Search / Follow Up Advice

I haven't been on here since before I started law school, but here goes.

I'm a 2L at a very good local school. I didn't do OCI because I am not top 20% of my class. I'm not going to get into deets about my class rank because it's pretty horrendous. However, I've worked on my resume through jobs, externships, clinics, and it's quite solid.

I submitted my resume online for this entertainment company in CA. They have a summer associate legal program in house. I submitted the CL and Resume on a whim, and got a phone interview in the midst of my fall semester finals. The recruiter told me everything should be decided by the beginning of February. I submitted the extra paperwork (company's) as requested, and have been waiting/following up since.

Last time I called to follow up, a few weeks ago, she told me that some of the divisions were just crawling and they were way behind, and thanked me for following up. This recruiter I think is in charge of ALL their summer programs - grad AND undergrad.

This is still a top choice of mine for summer. What's a good way to follow up if I want to call in tommorrow?

Transferring / Transferring to Fordham
« on: January 03, 2006, 12:11:44 PM »
I attend a respectable T2 in NYC, but when applying to schools last fall Fordham was my top choice for many reasons. I don't know my grades yet except for Legal Research/Writing, where I was below the curve and pretty upset, but it was only worth 1 credit hour.

Does anyone have any insight to what it would take to transfer to Fordham? One of the reasons I'd like to transfer is the joint JD/MBA program.


Transferring / After the transfer...
« on: September 25, 2005, 12:31:08 PM »
Ok, I decided if possible I'd like to transfer. My question is after the transfer, how hard is it to get "in" with your class? Law school is def not social hour, but its always good to have a few peers you can depend on. Any successful transfers have any insight?

Transferring / Transfer Question!!!
« on: September 06, 2005, 04:34:43 PM »
Hey all.

I'm a 1L in my 3rd week of full schedule. My school is a good local school with a solid reputation and great alumni base. It ranks mid T2. However, I want to transfer (within the same city - NYC) for prestige, mobility of degree after a few years and more options. I don't find the work "easy" nor am I one of the smartest kids in class. I was wondering if just based on this I should forget about transferring.

I picked a school that I knew I would attend happily for three years if transferring didn't pan out. I just wanted some feedback from how successful transfers felt their 1L year.


Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Brooklyn's WL

I called today and was told there has been "very little movement" on the waitlist. Then he looked me up and I got the wonderful "no change".

Just posting for the kids waiting. Hopefully yalls luck is better than mine.  :-\

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Cardozo's Waitlist
« on: June 29, 2005, 08:36:19 AM »
Anyone heard anything about Cardozo's waitlist? Just how it works, how many they pull, etc? I visited last week and fell in LOVE with the school. The facility, the faculty, the students...everything was perfect. That combined with all the different clinics and its placement in the city made it ideal.

Its funny because I applied on a whim, thinking I'd get flat rejected and was really surprised that I even got on WL. I know my shot is still a longshot, but its one I'm going to take. Anyways, I wrote a novel...but any ideas?

Admitted students, where are you guys living? Any suggestions? I am visiting in a few weeks, but at this rate I think I'm gonna call, beg and plead for grad student housing or the townhomes if they're not full.
