Current Law Students / Re: Sitting in the law library today...
« on: September 01, 2008, 08:54:16 AM »
Especially funny that he picked someone who is less than a month into 1L year

I don't think 1L's look different than 3L's to the average joe...

Current Law Students / Sitting in the law library today...
« on: August 31, 2008, 07:11:46 PM »
and some random guy walks up to me and starts asking me about divorce law and multi-state judgments and so on while I was in the middle of reading.  Wouldn't let me get a word in edge wise, finally I told the dude I am not an attorney and cannot give legal advice.  He wouldn't give up though.  Finally I told the guy to consult an attorney because he wouldn't shut up and was wasting my time.  He got the hint when I finally picked my book up and pretended to start reading again.   Damn public university library rules about "citizen" access...

parents are way too involved in their childrens lives... there was a segment about this on NPR the other day with parents actually going on job interviews with the kids.  crazy. 

couldn't find the NPR article but here are two others: http://www.usatoday.com/money/economy/employment/2007-04-23-helicopter-parents-usat_N.htm

Transferring / Re: U Texas to NYU or not???
« on: August 02, 2008, 01:23:52 PM »
read this article: http://resipsablog.com/2008/06/01/average-starting-salaries-for-texas-law-school-graduates/   and notice the COL article from CNN embedded on that page.  NY is freaking expensive.  $101,000 average salary from UT law, and you are already on LR, worked at two big firms, and I am assuming that you are paying in-state tuition or have a scholarship and you want to transfer to NYU and HOPE that it all works out after sinking another $135,000 into school?  Good golly that girlfriend of yours better be the one....
