Do we have a chance at a decent job? Sure, but who the hell has the time to find it? I have found the leg work prohibitively time consuming. I simply do not have the time to keep up with school work, the journal, and conduct a never-ending job search. At some point this job search thing has diminishing returns. If we invest all our time in the job search, this may be to the detriment of our grades. Then there is a chance that not only do you not have a job, but you have another set of bad grades. Who needs that? I'm thinking about being a research assistant this summer, going abroad to study and knock out a few credits, or, *gasp* working part time as a court runner, or at the law library, or some lame thing. What more can I do. I'm going to shoot out resumes here and there, try to send out 5 per week or something. But, I'm through letting this consume my life. Like you, I have a boyfriend with the grades, an Ivy Educ., and a stellar job. He's making it and I am happy for him. I am also proud of myself to. Cheer up sister, we'll have jobs too...eventually. In the meantime, let's let the guys take us out for a nice dinner. We are no slouches either, and we deserve it!!
