right now as a 1L I fing that I don't have the energy to read all cases, so I read case briefs and I read the notes in the case books. If I brief every case myself, I would be reading 24/7. I also read commercial materials to understand things. So far I have no problem in class. But is this method really stupid? I do really want to do well.
I got a "you only got your summer job because of your father, we frown on nepotism at this firm" and then a "say hello to your father" as I was walking out the door. Keep in mind he didnt know my father. I was offended till my friend said that he told her "I am not going to lose any sleep over you not getting a callback." Needless to say, neither of us got callbacks and many of those that did will be turning them down. I would have rather had a "good luck."
Hey Guys - So I just heard from the first of the three firms - all are NY BigLaw btw, I dont know if I mentioned that - and I got an offer! The hiring partner called at around 5pm - and this is exactly 2 weeks since the date of my call back. Hopefully this bodes well for the other two...I thought getting in the process early would help results come more quickly but apparently things don't start to speed up til later in September. Thanks to those who posted what they know, it helps...
I'd bet this is one of the rare situations, where you should ask the career services office at your school. I'm sure there are some NALP guidelines on this. It must come up pretty often, so the career services people should know how yo handle it.
