L.L.M. Board / Re: Tax LLM
« on: August 08, 2006, 02:15:05 PM »
Thanks for the post Wild Jack. I'm thinking about going to NYU, but I imagine that I'll have to keep my grades up in the top of the class in order to make it into the number 1 program in the country.

L.L.M. Board / Tax LLM
« on: August 06, 2006, 02:11:03 PM »
Anybody out there doing a tax LLM? If so would you answer a couple questions for a JD candidate considering a tax LLM:

1. Did you work for a while after getting your JD and then go back to school -- or did you go straight-away from law school?

2. Which school are you going to?

3. What do you hope to be able to accomplish, professionally, that you would not have been able to w/o a tax LLM?

4. How intense is your program, i.e. can you work part-time?

5. Insert -- any other question that I should be asking but haven't

Thanks a lot

General Board / Re: Any other 1Ls dreading the start of year 2?

I, for one, am dreading the start of year 2. Not because I did poorly in my first year or didn't like law school. Actually I did really well in the first year (top 5%, Law Review, Moot Court) and enjoyed the experience probably about as much as possible. I'm dreading the start becuase I know exactly how much work it takes to do really well in law school. Last year it was basically my life and now I have LR and MC on top of everything else, not to mention OCI and the competition to find the "perfect" job. I imagine that once I settle in and get back into a good routine things will be alright, but right now the year looks pretty daunting.
