Job Search / Re: Bummed out

I guess this can be flamed b/c it is basically me having a pity party for myself. But here goes. I am near the top 10% of my class at a T4 school and do not have a job yet.

Based on your earlier posts, isn't your school second tier, not fourth?  I think generally people expect that a T4 student might have more problems finding work than a T2 student, so if a T2 student in the top 10% can't find work then that might be more unusual (if the economy didn't stink).

If you're using the Bluebook, keep the semicolon and leave "accord" without a capital letter since both "see" and "accord" are signals of the same type.

I would just wait.  The hiring committees don't always meet when they think they will, so it could (unfortunately) take longer than they led you to believe.

My offer was initially communicated by phone, with a formal letter to follow by mail.

I've been sending individual emails to each interviewer.  I've even received responses back from a few. 

Of course, I have no offer yet (but no declines, either), so who the heck knows.  :D

The holding is the court's answer to the issue/question presented, and the doctrinal analysis is how the court applied the rules or policy to the specific issue in order to come up with the holding.

The curve at my school for part-timers was actually higher than the full-time students.  Lots of people do part time because of work/family obligations, and not because they couldn't gain admittance to the full-time program.

Transferring / Re: $250 Registration Cancellation Fee

I wonder if it is some sort of holdover from your 1L year - perhaps the policy for withdrawing after deposit deadlines still applies later on?

Did you register before you found out you were accepted to transfer?
