I'm going to assume that LLM requirements and applications are going to skyrocket with the current job market. I don't know where you'd look for admission requirements for LLM programs though. You could try asking the schools, but I'm guessing they will serve you the same bull as they do with JD applications about how its a "totality of circumstances" and "not to get too caught up in the numbers". Yeah right.

A JD will not teach you to be risk averse. A JD will teach you about the law. Whether you are risk averse or not has nothing to do with your education, it has to do with your personality.

1L job search / Re: Finding jobs in smaller firms (1L, 2L, post grad)

I can assure you LSD is a fuckload better than my school's career services. I wish I was kidding.

I don't really know what I want to do. I know that I don't want BigLaw, I don't need a 150k paycheck, and I only intend to stay in law for a short time. Small firms seem good. Been thinking about some Gov jobs too, but they generally require you to move to DC...so... @#!* dat *&^%.

Pulse and checkbook and you're good to go.

Ok, not quite that bad, but LLMs are generally cash cows, so if you want NYU or Harvard on your resume but botched the LSAT, this is the place to go.

Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Re: Northwestern as a Young Applicant?

Me too, but that's only applicable if you consider 1 year deferred as nothing.

Considering there is about 30 district court internships available for every single CoA internship*, yes it makes a difference.

The experience you get as a 1L is probably not very valuable in either case, but main reason for working 1L summer is to impress employers on OCI for 2L, where it starts getting srs business.

*Number just taken from what our career services office told us. They are epic *&^%, so I put very little faith in this number being accurate, but the fact that there are tons more DCs than CoAs makes sense.

Yup, that doesn't mean they want straight out of college kids with no WE.

You must have missed the part about deferred acceptance scholarships...

Nope, I am just guessing he wouldn't be interested in deferring for a year with the numbers he has. He could get a scholarship at comparable schools straight up. Anyway, this discussion is getting retarded.

Like, neutral, unbiased, good, honest, investigative? Well, the list could go on. Perhaps you are right.
