Job Search / Re: How to Decline Summer Associate Offer
« on: September 26, 2007, 09:10:15 AM »
So far it looks like email is the choice for declining offers. A couple of the firms which I have offers from I really liked. Would it be acceptable to send a typed and signed letter letting them know of my choice? I feel like this way they know I was really interested. The only thing I do not want to do is decline by phone. I don't want to say something that could wind up being taken the wrong way by a partner. Thanks for the responses.

Job Search / How to Decline Summer Associate Offer
« on: September 24, 2007, 06:22:21 AM »
    What is the right way to go about declining an offer? I have been lucky enough to receive multiple offers and find myself in this akward situation. Does denying an offe r effectively sever future ties with the firm? I feel like I have been "two-timing" these firms during the interview because they have all gone so well and I have honestly told all of them that I would love to work there. Didn't expect to be having to make this decision and don't want any hard feelings after the process. Any help is appreciated.

Let me start out by saying I know exactly how you feel right now. A year ago I was in your shoes terrified that my life was on hold for 3 years. Bottom line, its not true. I don't want to make it sound easy, but it is not going to kill you.
     I spent 3, maybe 4 hours a day reading. I always made sure I had my reading done. And this was not library reading. It was in my bedroom by myself reading, less distractions and better environement. I was able to see my family/friends/fiance everyday. For exams I studied for 2 weeks using my notes (took good notes in class) and outlines from others. After the first year I am in the top 10%.
     Be efficient and get your reading done and you will have no problem. Don't let the hype slow you down. Good luck, you'll do fine.

Current Law Students / Torts Question re: Reasonable Person
« on: December 06, 2006, 08:47:19 PM »
I know that a person with a defect is held to a reasonable person with that same defect. I also know that mentally insane people are held to the "normal" reasonable person standard, but my question is: Is a mentally retarded person held :P to a reasonable person with the same mental state, or are they held up to the regular reasonable person standard? Thanks.

Transferring / Re: Anyone attempting a transfer to Buffalo?

Buffalo (the law school) is a great education and is located in Amherst (a suburb) that is not bad at all in my opinion. Good luck!
