Tag, as well.

Looks as if it's best to figure out early that you want to go solo, and plan accordingly.

Thank you. =)

It's nice to hear some words of encouragement.  Too often we hear all the things that are WRONG with law school and how hard the next few years are going to be.

All of those other comments might be true, but it's a breath of fresh air to hear someone say something positive.

So, thank you.

I'll be 34 during my 1L year. This is a second career for me.

I'm doing this part-time, so I guess I'm even more non-traditional.

I would look at the ABA Guide to law schools for that info.  Make your decision based on your own needs and goals.  Check out the LSAC site for guidance.  You'll just get mostly flame comments on here. :)

Sadly, you are correct.

Current Law Students / Re: How many OL's are excited to start school?

I am very excited. 

And like everyone else, I'm a little scared.  It's a big commitment. It's going to be difficult. And I think we are all wondering if it'll be worth it and if we'll succeed.

Once we get started with our classes I think I'll be excited and overwhelmed.

When exams are close, I'll be excited and scared again.

After 1st semester grades, I think it'll be a little easier. At least I'll have been through it once.

I'm a 0L, so take what I say with a grain of salt. =)

I was planning on using on-line legal dictionaries when possible.  But I did pick up the pocket edition just in case I wanted to study and didn't have internet access for some reason.  Kinda of a "middle of the road" approach.

Oh! I totally didn't take it as flame bait.  You mentioned things that I hadn't thought of.  Specifically, I had only been thinking about how blogging could be harmful, and I hadn't stopped to think very much about the ways in which it could be used to HELP your job search.

It's a gamble, but one that could pay off. 

Just double and triple check your grammar and spelling and make sure that all your blog posts are as well-written as you can manage.  Don't follow in Brittany Spears' footsteps. =)

I wish you lots of luck with it. I love reading blogs.  But this is, for me, a spectator sport.

This sounds like a dangerous project.  You can bet that each and every potential employer is going to be looking to see if we have a blog or a myspace or whatever.  I know that I couldn't write an honest and open (and thus interesting) blog if I knew that my future employer was going to read it.

I also bet that when we finally make it to court that our opposing counsel will have done a google search on us too.

Heck, in 2000 I hired an employment lawyer to review a contract I was being asked to sign and he did a search on my company's attorney and basically told me all about the school he went to, his clients and everything. And that was back in 2000.  Before blogs and myspace.

In a field that is so heavily dependent on reputation, I'd be very hesitant to offer up any additional information about myself.

That said, you can guarantee that I'll be reading some of these blogs.  Smart people make good blogs.
