Job Search / paris offices?
« on: November 02, 2008, 02:49:41 PM »
i'm technically pre-law, just started getting accepted to schools about a week ago. however, where i decide to go depends majorly on... if it would benefit me to have a french law degree or not. i'm planning on asking for a deferral so i can come back to france next year and be completely fluent, after which i plan on pursuing a j.d./maître en droit. however, i want to practice for an american firm... with a paris office. i've done a bit of research, but, in your general experience, do several firms have offices abroad? and how hard are they to get into at that? and would it really benefit me to have a french law degree in order to work at that firm, or would being fluent in french be enough?

i appreciate all the help!

anyone gotten actual fee waivers from fordham, george washington, or penn?

It really depends on the school and the reason you give them.  Once you decide on the school you want to defer, it'll probably be easier to research this/get anecdotal evidence. 

hmmm yeah.. however, part of my decision will come from how easy it is to get a deferral. i should've mentioned this, but my top schools are..


So.. I started applying to law schools then came to France, fell in love (with France, that is), blah blah blah. As I won't really ever have another chance to do this, I'm applying for a yearlong teaching assistantship to teach English in underprivileged French schools through the French Embassy. However, I really, really do not want to go through the admissions process all over again for law school. Having gotten my first acceptance Friday (UCLA, woooo!), I need to start thinking about an admissions deferral. How easy is it to get one? Does anyone have experience with this? I would be megasad if I didn't get a deferral and had to nix France, because I'd already have committed myself to that school.. right? Is it beneficial to ask the school before accepting? Baaah! Any info at all is appreciated.

when diid you go complete at UCLA?

October 15. And I got the call the 24th. Damn.. Gettin' busy at UCLA!

ugh, i hate to sound stupid, but do you have to have a link from the school in order to check your status? and the school always notifies you when you're complete, right? georgetown was one of the first schools i applied to, but gmail tells me i have no emails of completion from them..
