Pennsylvania State / Classes/Professors
« on: August 09, 2007, 05:02:05 PM »
Hey everyone... This is probably a dumb question, but so many other students from different schools are talking about having signed up for classes already, so... we cant sign up until we get our ID on the 22nd right?

And does anyone know of a site where students rate/discuss the professors? At my undergrad there was a site like that and it was soooo helpful in choosing which professors to sign up with (not that we have much of a choice right now). Thanks! See ya soon.

Pretty much.  Some people will start preparing their resume in November (most wait until after exams), and have it ready before the holidays to send out in mass over break and in January.  OCI stuff for 1Ls will start up in January and run until March.  But if you do not get a job through on-campus or resume collect, do not be disheartened.  Many students I know didn't have a summer job until April, and many more went into May.  Personally, I didn't have a summer job until April.

But, I forgot that the semester ends later this coming fall due to the elimination of fall break for a week at Thanksgiving.  So, I am not sure how that may affect the whole 1L process.  I am assuming not much.

Great thanks.

Kilroy, I have a question for you...

I'm trying to budget and plan for the semester, and I know I will need to update my professional wardrobe for when the time comes to interview for summer jobs. I've also heard there are some networking functions and what-not. Will I need a nice suit for anything during the first semester, or can I wait till December to do some shopping?

To my knowledge and what I remember of my first semester, I did not need a suit for any law school function, network function or employment purpose.  The career services office will not even allow you access to the OCI system, and strongly discourage you from working or looking for jobs.  As a matter of fact, you will not be able to even talk to Career Services until November.  So I would say you do not need one.  Now, you may be involved in other things where you need a suit.  I had one nice suit that I brought with me for first semester.  It sat in a closet all semester.  I updated over winter break.  You should just be focusing on first semester classes, and not anything else.  If you have a suit (even if it is not nice), I would bring it just in case.  But I can almost guarantee you it will sit in your closet until January interviews start.

So do students start sending out resumes in December for summer internships/jobs?

I was wondering about this too....

That sounds like fun! My last day of work is Friday - yay! - I gave a really long notice so they could find a replacement and I have been so anxious for the past few weeks. Can't wait to get this dreaded move over with and finally get settled in my new apartment and start school!!

Yeah I feel the same way. My last day isn't until the 11th... but it keeps me occupied I guess because all I can think about is getting to PSU!

Great - welcome, CCH! I don't mind multiple outings...sounds like fun! Maybe we can have a pre-orientation cookout or something.

Thanks! Sounds like a good plan  :)

I can't make the 3rd but I'm pretty certain that I can make the 11th.  It would be fun to connect some screen names with faces...

I won't be there until a little later... like the 18th maybe?? So if you all get together again before school, I'm in.

Hey everyone - I'm starting this fall in Carlisle. Just wanted to say hello. Can't wait to meet you all.

Yeah... it seems like it would save time but might be a little confusing to not have a brief written out to-the-point in front of you and in your own words.
