Transferring / 2 LORS required for UCLA?
« on: June 24, 2007, 11:38:12 PM »
I just realized that 2 LOR's are required for UCLA

I'm trying to transfer from a  T2 60-80 in the Midwest....3.73, prob between top 5-10 percent.

Problem: I only have one LOR, and its from a legal writing teacher. I didn't know they required 2 letters, and its way too late for me to get another one on this short notice (also...I didn't really consider transferring all that much until recently...but now i'm fairly set on it.....I didn't make much attempt to build relationships with profs, since i didn't suspect I'd need a recommendation anytime soon.)

Question: Is the fact that I only have 1 letter going to be fatal to my application at UCLA in lieu of my other numbers? Is anyone applying to UCLA who is in a similar predicament?

Also, I'm applying to GULC, NW, USC.....Are there any other places I have a reasonable shot at getting into? My main criteria are simply a great school that will allow me to practice pretty much anywhere. The school I'm at now is fairly regional, and I dont' feel particularly tied down to the region for any reason. Suggestions?

« on: March 16, 2007, 07:21:49 PM »
I'm at a T2 in chi with an approx a 3.55 after 1 semester.

What are my chances of transferring to some T15-T25's.

I was waitlisted at 3 of them when i initially applied? Will this fact, coupled with my current gpa help/hinder/have no effect on a transfer app?

any info appreciated

1L job search / Need advice regarding judicial externships
« on: February 06, 2007, 11:13:39 PM »
What is the difference between externing for a Federal judge vs. state judge, both trial level?

I've heard federal is more prestigious, However one particular state trial level judge is very good about workign with the externs and giving interesting work and court room experience.

So....if i apply for both, and assumign i'm offered both, should I take a federal judge externship regardless, or go with the state judge externship that has good reviews from former externs?

I'll be working for the summer after 1L, and both are unpaid and in Chicago.

Also, assume i'm offered both (i know its not likely, i'm just trying to see the perception of federal vs. state)

1L job search / Tell me what to do

I may be able to line up a summer job lined up with a trial level judge in chicago, but its unpaid. Grades are decent at a T2. Should I pursue summer job with a firm instead, or is working with a judge post-1L seen as better. Note: I have no idea what I want/should do.

Anybody know what GPA and/or Class Rank that would be needed to transfer from one of the Chicago T2 schools (Depaul, Loyola-Chi, Kent) to Northwestern or UChicago

also, what would be needed for a transfer from one of the same ChiT2's to GULC or UVA?
