hi ikhorgan,

would you mind elaborating? i'm a little confused. are you a 2L interviewing for a summer job or a 3L interviewing for an associate position after graduation?

I worked in the inhouse legal department of an investment bank.  I got paid 2500 biweekly. Inhouse positions especially at banks are difficult to land but if you do, it's a pretty sweet gig.  :)

sorry i guess i'm a little clueless. how would the nalp changes affect the turn around time for extending offers?

oh wow. thanks so much guys for the advice! i didn't realize professors were willing to discuss practice exams.

Another question for all you legal eagles out there..

i know that you all recommend working through practice tests as much as possible. i know that a lot of the times the practice exams are in the library reserve but i don't think a lot of them have model answers. since that's the case i think for most schools, how do you know if you are improving or you are on the right track?

thanks in advance! :)

Question..I've been reading through all the different study strategies in this thread and was did you guys maintain your rigid exam practice and outlining schedules when your memos were due? doesn't llrw take a lot of time? any advice on that class? books that explain brief writing,etc? thanks!

I second CamelMan's recommendation on writing a good addendum.  Just to let you know, I just went through the reapplication process after withdrawing from school in 2003 which isn't that long ago. I don't know if your situation will be different since so much time has elapsed but it hurt my applications to have a prior record. I was in a comfortable numbers range for a lot of the schools I applied to but all of them rejected me minus one which waitlisted me. Luckily, I got off the waitlist pretty early in the summer and will be attending a top 20 school but the process was very stressful. Most of the schools did hold my prior record against me.

Your numbers are almost identical to mine, PlzAccept, so if GW is still looking for the same type of candidate in terms of numbers, you are in the running. However, you should definitely send LOCI's and additional recs if you haven't done so already. I really expressed my interest strongly and persistently (without sounding desperate :)) and I think that is what helped me to get off the list last month.  Good luck!

ur right about the phone calls. i got a call as well. maybe they are rejecting people off the waitlist by snail mail?
