1L job search / Re: Being a Summer Associate rocks!

An attorney I was talking to after a hearing said "You seem like a firm type anyway."

Should I take this as a compliment of my wardrobe?

LOL, were you wearing cuff links?

It must have been my pink tie.

Nothing wrong with being the firm type. Public interest is so overrated - you will never make a difference. But, if you don't believe, waste your whole life and prove me right.
Public interest is an admirable direction to go.  I believe you have more tools to make more of a difference if you go private.  If you choose public interest, you will make a difference one client at a time and that is more than what is expected of anyone.

This is supposed to be dissemination of knowledge, not stupidity. 

People who's dumb enough to go to PSU should not be allowed to speak on this forum. 

You should follow your own advice.
Don't mind him. He's not used to being inside.  I suspect he's some sort of savant Yale dragged in from the streets...

OP should just drop out and start an Emu farm.  I heard Emu farming is getting big.  Emu Feathers, Emu Meat, Emu Eggs.

first of all i think everything you said could easily be applied to guys *(as someone else pointed out) and i think your totally wrong.  the schools i visited and the school im at has plenty of attractive people. o course not as much as college, but still quite a few. in fact i think good looking people tend to be very successful in general and from what ive noticed there are quite a few very attrative-well put together -rich -white females and preppy- kind of looks like a frat boy [but went to john hopkins -and is a genius- type of guys

however i tend to be very generous when considering cuteness and i often take into account how well dressed/groomed people are
Just white?  Your prospects are limited.  Too bad more for me.

General Board / Re: C+ Grades...write-on law review
« on: May 31, 2007, 09:28:31 PM »
So 1L's over and I have a C+ average.  Our law review is write-on but I can't get motivated enough to finish through the paper.  Should I even bother? Every time I start writing either I'm thinking of my grades or watching the other "smart" folks polishing their papers.  I guess the finals pretty much knocked out any/all confidence.  Tips?????
You ned to sit back make new plans the get back to work.  Why stop?  The only thing worse than failing is quitting.  Next Semester you could wind up on top with the othe guy where you are.  If you make Law Review you L.S. career is revived.

This entire conversation is ridiculous.  You are trying to get advice from people about hypothetical 1L summer jobs when you haven't even started law school.  No offense, you could fail out your first semester, discover you hate law school or be in the middle of your class.  I wouldn't worry about your summer job quite yet.  Wait until you see if law school is really for you and how you do, then stress about finding a job. 
You can't plan that way.  Now is the time to think about 1l summer.  You should have a 3,5, and 10 year plan.  You shoud revise your plan periodically.  You should be flexible but have an idea of where you would like this to end up.  If you plan and end up dropping out, fine.  At least you had a plan.  If you don't plan and choose to stay with it then, summer 1l, you'll be lifeguarding while everyone else is getting experience, resume building, and re-evaluating thier plans.

It is well and all to think about what you might want to do your first summer, but you are prohibited by the ABA and your law school from looking before December 1st of your first semester.  Most employers respect this prohibition because they all realize, like everyone else, that first semester 1L is make or break.  It is rough to realize it, but after my 4th semester of grades which just came in, you will pretty much stay the same from where you were after your first year.  Having 5 a year plan is great and all, but they are not worth stressing over.  The things you should be worrying about is goofing off the rest of the summer, enjoying yourself because 2.5 months from now the reading, briefing and studying begins, and doesn't stop for 16 weeks.
Right don't stres yourself out.  I agree with that.  You've got to go with the program.

What's the point in going to L.S. if you don't do your own work.  You can go to CA and just read in if your're not inetersted in studying. Besides this sounds about as accurate as wikipedia.
