I still do not get what is wrong with dressing professionally for class? If that is your thing do it, no one said the rest of you have to wear a tie.

Point blank--It is hard as hell to get the internship.

I am also a OL, but I do have some legal experience..

Highly recommend reading these books before law school so that you will have an idea of how serious the stakes are about grades and job. Plus you can start deciding what area of law you would like to practice, and how to best enter that field of law.

Guerilla Tactics to getting the legal job of your dreams

The official NALP book on legal careers

These are not the exact titles but you should be able to find them on Amazon. Regardless what anyone says, any preparation that can be done is a good thing. Since you cant practice old exams until you learn the material you can at least start looking at areas of law that interest you.

what happened to the topic

Thanks. You should do it. ;)

perhaps a tad, but the two really do go well together.


Check it out and leave a comment.

but it does seem that those with more life experience have much happier time in law school...

While I realize that everyone does not fit into a tightly sealed box, I also agree that most non-trads seem to be a little more happy about law school.

The College of Business offers a certification in Forensic Accounting and Fraud Investigation which is only a four course load offered during the summer. I am also thinking of completing solely this in lieu of the MBA.

I am starting law school in the fall and plan on enrolling in the joint degree JD/MBA program. My intentions are to practice securities, corporate, and real estate law in a major metropolitan area. Most books I have read so far concerning securities regulation as well as the SEC's website looks favorably upon obtaining the joint degree. I am wondering how you guys feel about the joint programs versus pursuing one or the other degree. I realize that a great deal of information is learned first hand on the job about securities but I think what is taught in the MBA program lays the foundation for what your mentors will teach you in the firm. Let me know what you guys think.
