Current Law Students / Re: Possibiility of working with FBI?
« on: July 09, 2007, 02:16:20 PM »
Law students always have opinions...

I suggest contacting the FBI and asking them.  There are positions other than Special Agent which could be filled.   

sweats with a hoodie, and sandals aught to do the trick.  If that's not enough make sure the sweats are too tight.  That's for men and women... ;)

Why not the G-Man?  I heard that's the spot.

Exactly - garbage collectors make smth like $50K a year and they don't have to complete even high school.
Yes but a garbage collector that is a high school drop out will never make any more that that unless he deals drugs or has the street smarts to build a successful legal business that is legal. 

What is your potential max as a J.D.? Even if you are average you may max at $100k, and work 9 - 5 in an air conditioned office.

$400-500?  That's so expensive, I doubt I can afford that kind of suit.  I was thinking more like $200.   >:(
So what is in style, 2 button or 3 button suits?
At K&G in the Philly area you can get 2 decent suits on sale for $150 - $200.  $400 - $500 is kinda steep maybe that's the amount in NY or something.

Go stand outside of a biglaw law office (Or the courthouse) on monday and you will see what they wear.  If you go to the courhouse make sure you watch the lawyers entrance.

Sorry I deleated my previous post...

I won't be there till the 8th.  Perhaps something on the 10th, or 11th.

2 suits 5 white shirts, and a collection of ties.  Switching ties is like switching suits.  I've been in business for 9 years and have conducted interviews from the employer side.  They don't expect a different suit each day and they all know your funds are tight.  In fact, if your are looking at corporate, tax, etc. type offices they may see it (more than 2 suits) as excessive spending and lack of self control and judgement. When you get your 1st $12,000 paycheck that's the time to build an impressive wardrobe. Don't go all metrosexual on us though... ;)

Yes I'm an 0L but 9 years of experience in Banking, Finance, and Real Estate should count for something... 8)

Just signed a lease! 1+ bedroom that accepts pets for $500/mo.  The kicker is I have to mow the lawn (Which my dog will use) and shovel the walk (which I will use).

I'm On the 300 block of N. Hanover just south of the rail tracks as suggested ;D but I'm on the east side :-\... Ahh well my dog will protect me. ;)

I have a Dell laptop now and have had really good luck with it, although I've heard from many people that they haven't been too happy with theirs. I kind of want a new one for school but don't want to spend the $$ when the one I have now is working I think what I might do is see how mine works out first semester and go from there. I have OneNote (2003 version) and would like to get 2007 but figure I should do that at the same time as a new computer. I think I read someshere about a laptop loan or something but can't remember where I saw it. Did anyone else find the immunization link kind of crazy?? I kept trying to choose "prospective students" from the dropdown box and it went all crazy and never brought up the info. Then I chose "current students" but that just told me what immunizations you can get from PSU services not what is required.
I had a dell I brought with me on military deployment to Bosnia in 2003.  I put it through hell then I gave it to my brother and it still works great.  That's what he sayes.

As for the Nazi... I just ignore him, he's harmless.  I would have chosen Cooley if it was my only choice.  My goal is to get a J.D. and to learn the law.  I could care less where it comes from. I make my own future not some arbitrary list based on random polling and falty statistical analysis.  The same type of people believed the world was flat :P.
