I am hoping that doing neither will not prove detrimental in my job search, as I am far too lazy to devote that much time and energy to something. :D

If you date a lawyer, you're f**cking smart. True, they're boring as hell, but they do have money!

I suppose the fact that I want more than financial security out of a relationship makes me stupid.  So be it.  I would rather have love over money any day.

Indeed; I believe she is in my IP class. I'm probably wrong, however.

Ruskie hates IP. :P

You working in Tampa?

I will be working at a corporate law firm with about 30 lawyers. I am also happy about returning to and working in my home town.

Congrats!  I feel the same way.  When I first left for law school, I never thought I would want to return home for work, but now I couldn't be happier.  The only thing that sucks about my summer job is that I will be living at home and will have to commute about 40 minutes each way to work.

No, St. Pete.

Awww, thanks, Kelly.

Sands - there's too much bull and drama there for me.  Please tell your boy HBCU to keep me out of y'all's *&^% over there.

it ain't him as much as its those other wack cats on there. there are a lot who are still positive but I think you let some of the negative cats get to you, namely the females.  I need another voice of reason

A voice of reason cannot exist without credibility.  There, I seem to have none.

You should come hang here with me more often. ;)

Are you referring to the "gourmet ghetto?"
Yes, my bad.  Two hours of sleep will do that to you.  Will edit original post. Thanks! ;D

Yeah, you're right, stuff is open etc at night, but I'm not a clubber. And at clubs everyone's drunk and eighteen, anyway. What I want are lae night cafes and bars. Not enough of those. I guesst he college system makes it hard to meet people, too. When were you here? What did you do?
You should be able to find that in SF.  Also, the gourmet ghetto in Berkeley, although somewhat expensive, caters to that interest.

Can't wait till you come! ;D

Hi.  I am new to this discussion board.  I am making a decision right now between a FT program and a PT program.  I am wondering what y'all think about the opportunites for work experience as a PT/Evening student.  I suppose I could ask the schools, but their answers will be such that they will put the best spin possible on it.  What really happens?  Please be honest, even if it is brutal!  Thanks for your input. 


Good question.  While I do not have anything but my gut instinct to back this up, I would guess that it shouldn't work to your detriment as long as you have good grades, your school is accredited and you interview well. 

It may be worthwhile to place a call to the recruitment offices of a couple of organizations that you may be interested in and ask them.  If anything, they ought to give you a more honest answer than your school's career services office.
