2L job search / Declining Offers
« on: October 25, 2005, 04:18:12 PM »
What's the best way? Letter, phone call, email?

If you are writing a letter, what format are you using?

God, I am really starting to hate this part of the process.

Stetson / Dear Stetson Students, I am in LOVE with your campus!
« on: June 28, 2005, 08:10:00 PM »
I was there today, working on a brief for work.  What a place!  The library is large, roomy and well-equipped.  Moving bookcases -- *&^%, we only dream about stuff like this at Boalt!  Your campus rocks -- just thought I would tell you! 

I look forward to going back tomorrow. ;D

Where's everyone going to be working this summer?  Are you satisfied with your placement or was it a last-resort option?

A friend has recently turned me into a points-whore. :D

Studying and Exam Taking / Siegel's Multiple Choice?
« on: January 28, 2005, 01:03:41 AM »
Have any of you used Siegel's and did you find it helpful?  I am particularly interested in the K's, IP, and Property ones.  Thanks!

1L job search / How to address cover letters
« on: January 03, 2005, 10:25:01 PM »
How are you addressing yours?  What is considered proper form?

To Whom It May Concern:?

Mr. or Ms. So and So?

So and So, Esq? (if they are a partner)

I feel so frustrated by this whole process, because, as a fresh-out-of-college 1L, I have never looked for anything more than a part-time job.  And even my most serious employment was tutoring athletes -- hardly a law firm application process.

Any suggestion?

General Board / Civ Pro is kicking my ass
« on: September 14, 2004, 09:12:59 PM »
Ok, folks, I admit it.  There's something in law school that doesn't come as second nature to me -- Civ Pro.  At first I was ashamed to admit that I was having trouble (you know all that vanity left over from the I'm a 3.9 GPA Phi Beta Kappa student in undergrad days). 

The funny thing is, I really can't place a finger on what it is that doesn't click for me.  All I know is that about 30 per cent of the time, I find myself at least somewhat confused.  They say this is normal, that you aren't supposed to understand everything that you learn during your first few weeks, but I don't seem to have any problems understanding the concepts in my other classes.   :-\

I suppose the logical thing to do would be to go talk to my professor and ask her if she thinks I am not up to speed and start reading pertinent topics in Examples and Explanations.  I do plan to do these things, but I guess, more than anything I need some moral support, an affirmation that I am not the only one.  Misery loves company, you know.  I'm just scared because I don't remember the last time I was lost in class.  Anyone else share my pain??
