Pursuing an LLM / Re: LLM @ T2

Thanks.  If anything, this will buy me some time until I have to pay back loans. :P

Pursuing an LLM / LLM @ T2
« on: May 05, 2009, 06:02:14 PM »
My school is offering all LLM programs to the 2009 grads for a discounted price of $9000 for the year.  The school is Loyola Chicago.  I am not sure well their tax program is ranked/regarded but this is a phenomenal price for an LLM.  Would it be worth it?  Ideally, I would like to work for the fed gov (IRS in particular).  Thanks in advance.

Big law will be possible in 2-3 years once you have some experience under your belt and the economy improves... Good luck!

actually i have pretty good grades (top 13% at a t2) and am working at a large firm this summer... I wanted to get on the journal so I could be more competitive for a d.c clerkship (anywhere) or a more prestigious firm...

Thanks for the postings.. minus the wise ass comment

What do you guys think about joining a secondary journal as a 3L?  What will employers think about that?  Will it help/look good for fall OCI. Thanks in advance

Job Search / Mid-Sized Firms

Where can I find a list of Mid-Sized law firms in Chicago?  I have tried NALP but they don't seem to have too many mid sized firms listed.  Thank you.

This is why I'm a HUGE believer in the pre-emptive strike.  I usually volunteer for about 10 minutes or so, then I'm done for the class, unless something being said is particularly interesting.


So, riddle me this, batman...

How does volunteering for 10 minutes, and then not saying anything for the remaining 1 hour 5 minutes plus, make me a gunner?

A gunner is someone who talks all the time, usually with no point to what they are saying, other than to hear the wonderful sounds of their melodious voices.  Clearly, If the total class time is 75 minutes, and I volunteer for only 20% of it (at most), that would leave wholly 80% of the class time where the only communicating I'm doing is on IM.

If you think that makes me a gunner, maybe you are projecting your own "gunner-ness" upon me.  Maybe you're the type who has to say everything, all the time, and hates whenever anyone else dares to answer a question in class, because they clearly don't know the answer, because they are not nearly as brilliant as you are.

1 person in a class of about 90+ taking up 20% of the time is a little disproportionate dont you think?  And as most of us know, after grades come out after that first semester, a lot of gunners seem to learn their place. ;D
