Does anyone know what the timeline for the application process is like once you have a callback interview?

I am getting ready for my civ. pro. final and already ordered the infamous E&E but I was wondering if anyone else had any suggestions. My prof.'s approach to class was not to teach the rules but to lecture on abstract theories such as the importance of jurisprudence and conceptualizing injury. I'm not sure that the typical supplement will help me here. Are there any books that touch more on theory and policy? Perhaps the E&E will do the trick when it arrives but I was wondering if there were any other suggestions. Thanks.

I originally applied for part time programs but then wound up going full time. I felt like having to dash off to classes at 5 PM would really hinder my ability to give 100% to my cases. I definitely think it is possible to balance some jobs, but law enforcement is unique. I was working for about seven years. It can be a weird transition. Sitting in the library for hours makes me miss field work.

I had a number of years of law enforcement experience before I switched over to school. I loved my job and was reluctant to leave but knew if I went part time either school or work would suffer and I wanted to be able to give 100%. You will find criminal law interesting and probably wind up thinking (as I did), that's not how it happens in real life! The rest of the stuff was all new to me, torts or contracts never came into play on the job. I think once I start taking evidence or criminal procedure more stuff will be familiar. But I am just a lowly 1L now...

I have a lot of friends who are graduates and they have all assured me that my future self will be forever grateful for taking an economical approach to law school. I still haven't found a place to live though...
