2L job search / Re: Federal Public Defender - worthwhile?
« on: September 27, 2009, 09:38:05 PM »
FWIW, I interned at an Office of the Federal Public Defender during my 1L summer and really enjoyed my experience there. It has not hurt me at all this fall during 2L OCI/callbacks. PM me if you have any specific questions.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: UMiami vs. FIU

I would recommend Miami. If you do ultimately pursue a PI career, you can switch your government loans to the income sensitive repayment plan and after 10 years, your loan will be discharged (as long as you stay in PI). Furthermore, if you change your mind for some reason, Miami will provide you with better options in private practice.

Do you know much about finances? 

Yes...

I think the pocket version is very useful since you can carry it around easily and quickly reference it while reading cases. I used mine quite a bit during 1L. It's also only $30.

The hardcover version is too big IMO and like others have said, there is no need to pay for a digital version since you can get free access to one through Westlaw.

In my experience you see the following:

1 (this is the prototypical gunner), 4 (on occasion), 5, and 6.

Thanks for your kind words Unbiased.

I think all of our (Dash, Unbiased, etc.) collective energy would be better utilized preparing for exams than bickering on an online discussion board though! I got my question answered... thank you to everyone who replied.

 
Here's to the last Friday night of fun until summer  ;D

I guess I should stop participating in The Restoration of Civil Rights Project since I am not 100% committed to working in PI and "don't want to be there".

This thread makes me feel irritable.

Why?

1L job search / Fed. Public Defender

Would interning with a Federal Public Defender's Office pigeon hole me to public interest jobs come Fall OCI?

Acceptances / Re: University of Florida??

I am asking this on behalf of a friend of mine.

How did you all find out your username and password for the online status checker? She has tried her LSAC password and username as instructed, but it does not work. Thanks in advance.
