Job Search / Re: McDermott Will Emery

Glad I read that before OCI.  Definately will not be bidding on them.  Also heard they gave no offers last year.

Transferring / Re: Where Should I Transfer - Harvard/Stanford?
« on: August 06, 2006, 07:13:54 PM »
The schools are so close in ranking I think it really comes down to geography.  I think Harvard has a slight edge in prestige, clerkship placement, and academia.  If you just want to do biglaw you can get those jobs at either.  The class size is super small at Stanford and it is supposed to be a more relaxed atmosphere.  The drawbacks of that are less class variety and lots of gossip.  Harvard, on other other hand, is huge with lots of niches to fall into but possibly more competitive.

Congrats.

Transferring / Re: columbia v. NYU?

Tough call.

Columbia: more presitigous, higher ranking
NYU: better location, I have heard the environment at NYU is better- less competitive & friendlier.

I would maybe look into any specific programs you are interested in.  I want a clerkship so I would choose which one had higher clerkship placement.

I am applying to both as well but my theory has been throw out a "wide net" and make decisions later.  Do you think you will get into both?

Current Law Students / Re: Write On Hell

I agree w/ Giraffe that a short time frame is better, like ripping off a band aid.  I just would have preferred more time after my final to start, since we had less than 24 hours.  I am really unmotivated.  And its a bummer that it eats up almost all the time I am visiting home before my internship starts.

Current Law Students / Write On Hell
« on: May 20, 2006, 01:09:25 PM »
Had my last final on Wednesday, just want to relax at the beach, but I have 12 days to finish a 10 page law review write on.  Anyone else feeling the pain?

Studying for the LSAT / Would 28 be a bit old to start law school?

I am just curious of what the effects of been older would have, and self conscious also.
