Current Law Students / Re: How hard is law school?

I blew off reading cases for my second semester of 1L, didn't pay attention in classes, but studied/made outlines the last ~3 weeks before finals.  Aced every exam.  Definitely possible to do well without doing much.  At the end of the day it is only a 3-4 hour exam.  They can only put so much on it and anything they can test you in that amount of time you can learn in 3 weeks.

Not saying they aren't useful (especially during interviews where they can be a great conversation starter).  I'm saying they probably don't care enough to check your journals rankings or accreditation or whatever.

I could be wrong but I doubt employers care much when it comes to secondary journals.  They're just going to look and go "oh he was on a secondary" and move on.

Well this is certainly an issue, and indeed, I ended up in law school because my UG degree was so bloody useless I was working in a grocery store.

I don't know what I'm going to do.  Literally every waking moment that I'm not interviewing I'm either having heart palpitations from abject terror or nearly in tears.

Seriously chill out.  The job market sucks.  It's not like you can do anything about it.  What are your stats?  I'm a transfer to a T10 and don't have any CBs and I know a lot of people here with 0-1...

i don't get the whole "get a job at OCI or dropout" mentality.  what else are you going to do?  do you have a useful undergrad degree or something?

The best way to do it is to show up early in the morning before interviews start.  No other students will be around and you can try to either interview before their first scheduled interview or see if they can fit you in during a break or at the end. 

Oh, and I agree with the above poster that if at all possible try to contact them before their scheduled OCI day.

Attempt #1 to delude ourselves: Economy will make staggering comeback and firms will decide to hire more summers in spring!

Attempt #2: Economy will make staggering comeback and we will make out like banshees at 3L OCI!

Ok.. that's about all I can think of.  Will try to think of more.  :(
