2L job search / Re: Cross Country job search

tip one: never in an interview simply say "i plan to move to seattle."

seattle is a small, hard market to break into -- above poster is right -- you need very strong ties to the region (i.e., you are from there) + fantastic grades from a good school.

if you want a job, i wouldn't solely target seattle (always keep new york in mind -- it's the one market that could care less about geographic connections).

edit: to answer your question directly -- i am looking across the country. school on east coast, looking in SF. even then, i have connections to the area. if you don't have any, get some. spend your first summer there or something. anything.

so, like, don't focus on OCI too much or else you might lose track of fitting in/outling/making good grades and oh, yeah, writing a book on transferring?

"admissions consultants" and law students who write books as though they are experts on experiences they are still going through make me crazy

Transferring / Re: How good is the LRAP at NYU?
« on: July 19, 2009, 03:08:59 PM »
I'm not transferring to NYU, but all the attorney's I've talked to have said it is a fantastic plan. (I've reviewed it -- and it is a very good plan). I'm not up to speed with Cornell's plan, but 35k/yr is A LOT of money to turn down. How is Cornell's plan + the Fed Income plan?

While I think NYU's is good, I'm not sure it's as good as $105,000 in FREE money from a T14, not to mention the low cost of living in ithaca. i vote stick with cornell.

(fwiw, I'm giving up 30k/yr to transfer, but i'm coming from a 40s school with NO lrap, and going to H). In your situation, it's a bit different.

How do you like cornell?

Gp, congrats. Would you actually choose UCLA over H or S? And out of H or S, i'm guessing you'd choose S? Reasons?

Nonetheless, congrats. I hope to see you at H in the fall if that's what you decide on.
