Current Law Students / Re: book totin' question

I'm kind of into this one: http://www.brenthaven.com/catalog-expandable-trek-titanium.html

It's expandable, so big enough for everything when needed, but not permanently ginormous to make you look like an ant carrying a nibble of sandwich back to the queen. I'd get the orange, of course.

This is the bag I have. It holds a lot (yet I still always have to carry at least one casebook). People are always like "why are you carrying around so much poo?"

The worst one are the people at my school who carry BOTH a backpack and a laptop bag. Christ get a bigger bag or don't carry so much *&^%. Your cars have trunks. That's my "locker".

A lot of girls at my school have a back pack, and a laptop bag, and a huge purse. It takes up so much room in class.

If it the choice was to either work part time at a law firm or join secondary journal in a subject you're not interested in, the firm work would probably be the better.

Law Review isn't the only thing out there that can enhance the resume.

I was going to say yes, unless you have zero interest in the subject matter, because interviewers will always ask you about it and assume you have an interest in the area, and you'll take the spot of someone who actually IS interested in the field.

But some journal experience is better than no journal experience, and *looks good on the resume* trumps everything else in law school, so go for it.

One girl in my section actually carried her stuff around in a rolling suitcase.

My Brenthaven bag was the only one I saw that had a big enough laptop compartment AND plenty of room for casebooks. It's not the prettiest bag, but it's been great for me.

I'm certain that we concluded a long time ago that seersucker suits (for men & women) were the only acceptable interview attire...

One of the interns at the clinic I work at showed up in one of these. And he met with a client.

Read over your resume and/or other materials you have submitted to them so that when asked about it the info is right at the top of your brain.
