I've heard 48 hours is about right- most people seem to have used the Barbri books.  Any other options?

Bar Exam Preparation / Illinois Character and Fitness

Hopefully people haven't procrastinated as much as I have on this.  Does anybody know what standards are used to deny people based on traffic violations?  I got a ticket a few years back for making a left turn on a no left turn sign (sign was in a strange area, as the officer admitted, and I didn't see it- promptly paid ticket) and was also stopped earlier this year for no city sticker and no front license plate.  I actually was unaware I needed either of those- again, complied and the tickets were thrown out when I went to traffic court and showed I complied.  I've heard stories of people getting admitted with dozens of outstanding tickets, so I shouldn't be worried- right?

I think it's the week before Memorial Day but have not been able to confirm this.

Current Law Students / Worst 3L GPA dropoff you've ever heard of?

I think I might go under 3.0 this semester after being around 3.8 the first two years.  My downfall- all difficult, curved classes and no motivation at the end of the semester.  This would be a truly spectacular fall and hopefully I win the prize for the biggest tank.

Just curious, I've heard it's almost impossible to get canned under 2 years.

Job Search / any tips for FTC phone interview?

I have one Thursday AM- already am leaning toward accepting firm offer because I'm broke but I would like to at least not embarrass myself. Any tips for questions to expect or suggestions for questions to ask when they pull the old "any questions for me"?  It's the bureau of competition, which is fitting because I hear competition for the jobs is intense.  Many thanks.

Job Search / Is getting no-offered the end of the world?

I had one bad review out of 11 until I got one today that was also bad- and pretty shocking since I was told to my face I did a great job.  Talked to a couple of associates who said I should be concerned about being no-offered.  While I know this would be the end of the line as far as working for a big firm goes, I'm hoping that government employers will be less critical since that's what I want to do anyway.  how should I spin this?  Thanks.
