Job Search / Re: Targeting firms early

Besides grades the only thing you can try to do is network. I guess hanging out at a bar would be one way. You should check out some of Matthies's old posts for tips (http://www.lawschooldiscussion.org/prelaw/index.php?action=profile;u=5971). He has some great info on networking. I'll let you do the digging for yourself though.

yeah i guess John Jarndyce is right. There is no need to worry about. You'll get your official mail pretty soon. Do let us know about that.Awaiting good news...  :o

Dude, this post is like 8 months old. There was no need to post this. Pretty sure she's gotten his letter at this point. Plus if you had bothered to check her LSN account, you would see that she got into Harvard anyway...so Duke really doesn't matter.

Transferring / Re: Transfer Resume

Concur with TransferorNot. You have to put your 1L school...at least until you graduate. It's definitely not the same as taking a few classes at a community college.

Anybody here apply from F/T to P/T? Just curious if they'd let someone in for that. I do have compelling reasons for it.

Transferring / Re: i need advice

I think the perception is that the higher ranked schools already have a greater number of competitive students, so you don't need to do as well relative to them as you would need to perform relative to less competitive students.  In other words, because the average student is less competitive (numbers-wise) at a lower ranked school, you have to really stand out to look as competitive as someone pulling top third at a higher ranked school (where the average student is much more competitive, numbers-wise).

In other words, kids are smarter at higher ranked schools.

Transferring / Re: UGH - Advice

I would go talk to a professor about it. They are usually open about this kind of stuff and can probably give you better advice. Or you might try talking to any practitioners in the field, if you know any. I have a few questions first though. What school are you at? How well did you do fall? Do you think your spring grades will be comparable? Also, do you want to prosecute white collar crime or be a defense attorney for it? How sure are you that this is what you want to do?

Let's be honest, the bluebook as a whole is retarded. Stupid elitists.

Ninja...you're like my new best friend.

Apparently this is not the write method.

The signal thing may not be your biggest problem.

Transferring / Re: Need your advice ASAP - please help !!

Holy hell...why are you even thinking about this?

Law school has 3 rules

1. Don't go to a school you wouldn't be happy graduating from
2. Don't go to a school you wouldn't be happy graduating from
3. Don't go to a school you wouldn't be happy graduating from...even if you were in the bottom half of the class.

I realize you're 'smart' etc., but so is everyone else. Don't plan on transferring because it could easily NOT happen and then you will be stuck with a crappy degree.

As a practical matter, Both of these schools are ranked quite low and the difference probably won't matter. You might have a little bit easier time coming from Rutgers, but its probably negligible. I will say that I don't think I could ever justify going to Syracuse...even with a scholarship. You'll probably be stuck in Syracuse. You should just stay in the finance sector. You're MBA will probably be worth more. Either that or retake the LSAT and reapply.
