2L job search / Re: How to Decline Summer Associate Offer
« on: September 26, 2007, 12:10:15 PM »
So far it looks like email is the choice for declining offers. A couple of the firms which I have offers from I really liked. Would it be acceptable to send a typed and signed letter letting them know of my choice? I feel like this way they know I was really interested. The only thing I do not want to do is decline by phone. I don't want to say something that could wind up being taken the wrong way by a partner. Thanks for the responses.

2L job search / How to Decline Summer Associate Offer
« on: September 24, 2007, 09:22:21 AM »
    What is the right way to go about declining an offer? I have been lucky enough to receive multiple offers and find myself in this akward situation. Does denying an offe r effectively sever future ties with the firm? I feel like I have been "two-timing" these firms during the interview because they have all gone so well and I have honestly told all of them that I would love to work there. Didn't expect to be having to make this decision and don't want any hard feelings after the process. Any help is appreciated.

General Board / Re: Is life as a 1L really that difficult?

Let me start out by saying I know exactly how you feel right now. A year ago I was in your shoes terrified that my life was on hold for 3 years. Bottom line, its not true. I don't want to make it sound easy, but it is not going to kill you.
     I spent 3, maybe 4 hours a day reading. I always made sure I had my reading done. And this was not library reading. It was in my bedroom by myself reading, less distractions and better environement. I was able to see my family/friends/fiance everyday. For exams I studied for 2 weeks using my notes (took good notes in class) and outlines from others. After the first year I am in the top 10%.
     Be efficient and get your reading done and you will have no problem. Don't let the hype slow you down. Good luck, you'll do fine.

General Board / Torts Question re: Reasonable Person
« on: December 06, 2006, 11:47:19 PM »
I know that a person with a defect is held to a reasonable person with that same defect. I also know that mentally insane people are held to the "normal" reasonable person standard, but my question is: Is a mentally retarded person held :P to a reasonable person with the same mental state, or are they held up to the regular reasonable person standard? Thanks.

Transferring / Re: Anyone attempting a transfer to Buffalo?

Buffalo (the law school) is a great education and is located in Amherst (a suburb) that is not bad at all in my opinion. Good luck!
