At my school (tier one), many of the students (nearly all it seems) who are Part time either have several children (taking care of them is a full time job for sure) or work.  In fact, I don't know of anyone who is part time and does nothing else.  I would suspect that employers would look down on a student if they were part time and did nothing but school. 

I think the bigger issue is that as law students, we spend too much time measuring ourselves against others, and not enough time just looking at ourselves.

I have never read the unedited case either.  I don't know anyone who is doing that.  Are you sure that someone in your class wasn't just preying on your paranoia and pulling your leg about this?

I people really want big money, they shouldn't go into law at all.  They should be out there working in the business world.  :)

For those of you who think that being a Paralegal just means "slapping labels on binders," you are going to have a very difficult time at your first job.  Paralegals run more than you think in big firms, especially since some stay on much longer than the associates.  Treat the support staff like crap, and your reputation will suffer.  Have some class and stop acting like a pompous jerk.  You don't know what you are talking about!

Well, you actually named the employer, so she must be getting $135,000.  I am not a firm person, so I guess I was off on the salary amount.

I would too, but maybe you should ask a prof that you trust and who knows you from LS? 

Remember that you are already admitted to the school.  You really aren't there to impress the admin anymore.  You can be yourself.  Not being yourself makes you a D.B.  That includes wearing clothing that isn't comfy.  They are just going to have you do some easy stuff to get your feet wet.  Ours is easy and friendly.  Nothing whatsoever to worry about.  My only worry was that it was too boring! 

Try to remember the names of people you meet.  Have fun!  Orientation is a piece of cake.  Go out after and have some fun. 

Nothing about orientation is difficult unless you make it that way. 

That's terrific - Congrats!

No list that I know of.  I do know that these jobs (for national non profits) are very competitive.  You can expect salaries in the low 40's max.
