Pre-law is a joke of major, find a real major and try again. Also, find a real school if at all possible.

HBCU's are real schools and a respectable choice if that is where you feel comfortable, and where you feel like you will get the best education.

Pre-Law is not a real major. Major in something else. You will get into law school and do fine with ANY major.

2L job search / Re: Lowenstein Sandler
« on: October 23, 2008, 05:25:37 PM »
I'm a 2L at NY, have an offer with Lowenstein and am debating between them and two larger NYC firms.

Looking for the inside scoop on Lowenstein.

PPP broke over $1million last year, despite a down economy.

Notable Venture Capital practice.

Why pick them over a larger NYC firm? Opportunities? Depends what you want in a firm.

Hey all,

So it's taking me basically every living second of my day (waking up at 8 and going to bed at 1) just to get all of my reading/writing assignments done on time. I've been using the weekends to work on my outlines and review a little, however i'm really concerned that i'm spending "too" much time in the casebook and not enough reviewing/with supplements.

I've been formally briefing every case which consumes the vast majority of my time, but i'm just not entirely confident this is the best use of my time. I find myself forgetting concepts we covered and am seriously worried if i continue on this path i might not be in game shape for exams. What am i doing wrong/what should I change now to make sure i'm in the best possibile position to excel come exam time? Thanks....

We had a guy like that at our school last year. He ended up dropping out. Don't kill yourself. Work smarter, not harder. 2Ls will give you their outlines... there is a start for you.

None of this stuff (case briefs, etc) matter much. All that matters is that, come exam day, you have a reasonably good outline to either work with during the exam (if allowed), or study from prior to it. You won't remember half the stuff the prof. says in class, don't worry about it.

LSAC and LSDAS / Re: How Important Are My LSAT Scores?

. . . and don't go to a social science PhD program unless you enjoy academia.

False... Economics is a social science, technically speaking, and plenty of economists work in the corporate sector.

General Board / Re: Mock Trial Team

Journal is more prestigious than Moot Court because it is more "academic." It is the same reason that getting a 4.0 at MIT is more prestigious than winning a national championship in football at USC... Not that the national championship is any less an accomplishment... Both things say a  lot of positive things about you.

Anyway, the real question is: Does Mock Trial even make the list?

I didn't even bother to try out. Nobody even asked during OCI. I got asked about Journal and Moot a lot though (I'm not doing those either).
