Job Search / Law Firm Size

So what exactly would be considered a large or small firm?  Would 100-200 attorneys be big or medium?  I was just curious

Job Search / Stupid Question about summer employment
« on: June 23, 2005, 06:10:48 AM »
Okay, for you guys that are working after their 1l summer, how many weeks are you going to work?  I'm just trying to sort of estimate how much in loans I'm going to need, and I'm rying to guestimate how much money I can make in the summer assuming I can get a summer job post 1L.

OneNote seems to have somewhat better organization features.  Instead of dealing with a bunch of .doc files, you can have just 1 notebook file (.one) that you can section and subsection with ease.  It's designed more for outlining, so it makes it easier to move around items in your outline than the traditional copy-paste method.  It's best feature is probably the ability to mark and search marks easily.  Definitions, important points, things you have questions on, etc. can all be marked in your outline and searched really easily and quickly.

Is it nicer than Word?  I think so.  Is it worth $50-100 bucks?  Not so sure, I'd have a better feel after I actually used it at law school.  I'd say its worth downloading on your law school laptop around a couple weeks to a month before classes start to play around with a little bit and use at the start of classes.  Easier to decide then.

Does anyone know how long the recording feature on onenote is?  I was thinking about recording lectures using this feature.  I've been messing aroud with onenote for a few weeks and I really like it.  I tried Gobinder and did not like it at all.

I've just enjoyed reading some cases and learning to brief a little bit.  Even if it doesn't help that much, at least I am getting some exposure to the law and it wont be totally foreign come August.

My girlfriend and I are likely moving to Fayetteville...very likely.  We are early 30 somethings.  I gather a few of the posters are also a bit older than the average.  Correct?
Anyone enjoy canoeing, hiking, etc.?  We live in Boone, NC and have loved it...I think Fayetteville will be somewhat similar, though bigger...looking forward to taking advantage of the area while in school...
As far as looking for a house, are there any fixer uppers floating around?  Did you go through an agent? Suggestions?

I'll be 30 in July and my wife is 26 so yeh, not everyone is right out of college!  We went through Lindsey and Associates.  They are the largest realty company in the area.  Our realtor is Pat Fair.  She'd be able to help you out.  As far as fixer uppers go, we looked at a few houses that were between 135,000 and 150,000 that were definite fixer uppers.  If you want you can go to, click on there search for a property, and enter the MLS# 437547 to see the house we bought.  I want to say this is typical because my cousin's house up there is very similar, but there weren't ay others for sale that were as nice as this one.  You should know though, that the market up there is such that a house may go on sale on Monday and be sold by Friday.  Most of the houses we sw online had been sold by the time we got up there, even the newest ones.
