Current Law Students / Ranking of Jobs?
« on: March 01, 2007, 05:47:19 PM »
Under the assumption that the knowledge of many is better than the knowledge of one, I come to you for help. Looking purely at prestige and 'wow' factor for future jobs, which are the 'best' jobs. Possible list? Clerkship at big law firm, clerkship in small law firm, in house law, non-profit place, research job for law professor, judge externship, and others? I feel like this might have been done before, but it would be helpful now that we are all trying to find summer jobs.

Current Law Students / Business Cards?
« on: February 13, 2007, 07:55:56 AM »
So, my career services advisor was shocked to find out that I didnt have business cards yet. How many of you have them? How often do you give them to someone? What do they say besides name, school, graduation year, and email? Thanks!

Job Search / Patent Law Interview Program - Any thoughts?

Did anyone go to this in Ohio last year? Is it worth it to fly there? And if you found a job, did you pass the patent bar?

Wow, Our NALP percentages are still on the old grading scale - very unhelpful. Thanks anyways though!

Current Law Students / Updating Resume with Grades
« on: January 30, 2007, 07:54:56 AM »
So, this might be a stupid question, but what exactly do you put on your resume? Our school doesn't rank until after the first year, but all the sample resume's only have rank. Based on last year's class, I know I am in the X percentile - should I put X% based on last year's class? Thanks in advance!

Ok, so how do you find this info on the website. I feel so stupid, but I could use some help.

We still havent received any of our grades. They release them all at once, and the wait is killing me.

Current Law Students / How many people still don't have their grades?
« on: January 26, 2007, 02:53:37 PM »
And how long until you get them? We are supposed to get ours within the next week, hopefully. Ive heard last year they got grades the second week of Feb.

Job Search / Re: Ding letters: reading between the lines

I have definitely gotten my share of rejection letters - most have been form letters. Although, I did get an email asking for my undergrad and law school transcripts. Should that make me hopeful or do you think that is standard? (As a side note, we don't get our transcripts after first semester for at least another month - we don't even have our grades yet!)

We wont have our grades until about 3 weeks in, so I am guessing that not too much will change just yet.
