Um no Jacy crazy is getting a puppy in your 3rd year of law school when you already have two dogs! What can I say, I am a sucker for sob stories (friend rescued an emaciated and neglected dog who was pregnant).

Be yourself. Unless your true self is really unprofessional and awkward.

3L job search / Re: OCI/Job Search Status Thread

None acceptances yet. Keeping my fingers crossed and applying to a bunch of other firms in the meantime. I'm also networking and going to career fairs. I really feel like our career services office let us down this year, but I guess the bad market is also to blame.

And I am a 3L.

^^^ I wish. We were limited a small number of a bids, and there is no lottery. Most of the firms that did OCI last year at our school are not doing it this year. So there are only about 40 firms for the whole school to choose from.  If I knew it was going to be this bad I would have fought harder for a SA job last year.

^^^ No its an online process. The law school gets firms to interview on campus in the fall and there is a website where you can apply (or bid) on the firms coming on campus to interview. You usually have a limit on how many firms you can "bid" on. After the bidding process there is a review process and firms then update your "application status" on the website once they have made a decision. So I "bid" on 13 jobs and so far 4 have not invited me to interview on campus. The other 9 are still pending.

I should have said I am near the top 10% in my original post. I'm near the top 10 at a T4 (missed it by 1 person) . I should have transferred.

3L job search / OCI/Job Search Status Thread
« on: July 29, 2008, 08:04:32 PM »
I thought it may be nice if we could have a thread where people could post their updates on job searches. This would allow people to vent about rejections and celebrate interviews, callbacks etc. in one thread. Does this seem like a good idea.

So for me OCI has just started, should find out in a couple weeks what interviews I might/might not have. I am in the top 10% of my class but I have a public interest work history, so I feel like firms may not want to hire me because of that.

How about everyone else?

I can believe this is real. I once interviewed a man that had a personality like this, very narcissistic and creepy. Hopefully she was able to block his number.
