How are you guy working your food budget?  What's your monthly expenditure? I thought about the Dickinson College Meal plan but that seems a little expensive.

I got Fin Aid detrmination yesturday with a new tuition figure.

No happy hour for me thanks.  My work schedule is unpredictable.  I'm sure there will be plenty of social events during orientation.

Would it be you burning the bridge or them because they were misleading? They're not going to open a space for you there if you do good clerical work.  I would plan on sometjing else.  The fact that you're asking about this sayes to me that your instincts are pointing you away from them.

They screwed you.  They knew you were in L.S. and were looking for a Legal internship. You might as well go volunteer somewhere to get experience. You need to build your resume and organize your future, not organize thier files.  Something that a H.S. grad can do...

Good luck.

General Board / Re: How important is case briefing?

it is not important at all. in fact, it's not even necessary to read the cases. what is necessary is that you know the black-letter law and how to write a law school exam. you don't learn that from reading (or briefing) cases.

That's true... I had a friend who hit median without buying a single book first or second semester. He's at a V50 BIGLAW firm for his 1L summer, too.
Yea I'm gonna risk $45K to do what he did and save on $1200 worth of books. :P  Are you people nuts.  I'm buying the books, reading the cases and at least try briefing...

I like the ocassional risk but I'm not doin this stuff for shts, and giggles.  $45,000!

No- the media will report that the police are calling the individual a "person of interest".   
Yea, that what they do... ;)

Just an OL but couldn't a person of interest be a "scared witness", or person "at risk, or a person who has a stake (positive or negative) in the outcome.

It's the media that makes that person a suspect. 

Pointless Arguments / Re: reputation score

Somehow I've be given the ability to raise or lower the reputaton.  I don't mess with it often though. For instance I just improved Mr. McKay's rating to +1 by commending him.  Perhaps he will reciprocate. (right now I'm at -1)

I hear it's anywhere you can get experience... Even if it's voluntary :P (Damn Commies!)
