2L job search / Re: Summer 2011 Outlook
« on: April 06, 2010, 04:46:55 PM »
If you don't mind my asking, what (if any) did you end up with?  Considering I mowed through applications to land a menial summer job with Home Depot before starting law school (I am doing this straight from UG), I have no problem doing a ton of legwork to secure myself employment.  I figure directly after OCI, I will be pounding the pavement.

2L job search / Summer 2011 Outlook
« on: March 24, 2010, 02:32:55 AM »
Hey everyone,

I am a little confused here.  Depending on which camp I talk to, there are people who are optimistic about the summer 2L job outlook for 2011, and others who think it will be as bad (if not worse) than this year.  Does anybody have any inclination one way or another?

Making this question more specific to me, I am currently above median at Illinois Urbana-Champaign, have locked up an externship for this summer (get to sit in on the Drew Peterson trial, pretty pumped), and am the first person in my family or circle of friends' respective histories to go through law school.  I would just like to know what I can reasonably expect for this upcoming OCI and summer 2011 cycle.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Scholarship Negotiation?

IT WORKED!!!!

Took a little bit of time, but Illinois took my Indiana scholarship into consideration and offered me a 10,000 per year scholarship.  Nothing massive, but it was from no scholarship at all.  Also, since I get in-state tuition as well, it knocks things down significantly.  Thanks everyone for your help.  If anyone has any questions specifically about how I did it, I would be glad to help as well.

How long after not hearing anything should I follow up, and should I do that by calling or another email?

And any thoughts on IU vs. Illinois?  U of I is 9 spots higher in the rankings, but at the same time, I saw people with very similar numbers to me (165, 3.45) get a little bit of money.  Also, how fast and in what manner (snail mail, call, email, etc.) did these schools get back to you?  Sorry for bombarding with questions, but these are the things I couldn't find in other forums.

Hello everyone,

First time poster.  For those that pulled this off, did you send an email or snail mail letter?  I sent an email to Illinois, noting that I received a 15,000 per year offer from Indiana-Bloomington.  Any thoughts, and is an IU scholarship enough to sway Illinois?  BTW, many thanks to JeNeSaisLaw, as I used that letter as a guide.
