Current Law Students / Hiring timeline, JD/MBA
« on: July 24, 2008, 08:41:36 AM »
I just finished my 1L year and am considering moving into the JD/MBA program.  As a rising 2L im applying for BigLaw firm jobs as a summer associate for 2009 which ideally transfers into a full-time offer upon graduation.
I know its that much more difficult to get hired by these big firms during your 3L year. 
My question is;
If I switch to the joint degree program, my graduation date becomes 2011.  12 months from now will I be able to reapply to BigLaw Firms as a 2L again.  I would much rather be in the 2L applicant pool where lots of offers are made than the 3L applicant pool where a small number are made. 
Answers? comments?

Leave NYLS, any moot court or journal stuff and tell all of your friends there they should have tried harder to finish as well as you did so they could have made the move, which they all would have.

--- Can I ask how/when they notified you and any seat deposit, oci info they gave you.
Thanks, and congrats.

Tough to say really,
I think it would entirely depend on the letter.  If you are saying I like your school, my grades are xyz and I like the area, that doesnt sound like more than what was in the original essays.  If you legitamately have something to say about the school or reasons for going I think a letter to an admissions officer is OK.   moderation.

Should you spend time writing a BS article for crappy newsletter of something noone is going to read, even if its for your school or a bar association or a trade publication, no one reads it.  You should have gotten good grades.  Spend time thinking of new people to ask for favors, and tape your resume to your forehead without the 'publication' line.
