Where exactly should sleeves fall?  I buy my suits from J. Crew and Banana Republic, because they're the only Talls I've found (in jackets, as opposed to just the pants... bc most stores don't know that people with long legs have long arms), but I'm still not convinced they're quite long enough.  But they could be let out a little.

I left a grad program after the first year, seven years before I applied to law school (same as you... just wasn't at all for me).  As far as I can tell, it wasn't an issue.  It might have been more of an issue if so much time hadn't passed and I hadn't had a work history of staying at jobs for reasonable lengths of time.  Since yours was four years ago, I would guess that would be long enough... you're not just hopping from program to program to find something that fits.

I don't know about the becoming a judge or becoming a prof coming from GW, but those are hard to do anyway.

So they have a scholarship guarantee if they accept you binding ED?  That's a pretty intriguing deal.  I can see why you're tempted to try for it!

Maybe they want to hire from a school, but for whatever reason the students aren't really drawn to it.  An unpopular/distant market, the pay, the reputation compared to other firms in the market.

Transferring / Re: The Transfer Resume

But would you actually list law review for your old school, since you never actually joined it and did work for it?  You were just offered a spot that you're not taking.

The problem with sending and then updating a resume is that you may not meet their qualifications without a journal and could get a rejection before you have time to update...  If someone's reviewed your resume without a journal, you may get shuffled into a bad pile before you even really have a chance. 

Well, I'm feeling lucky not to have this problem now, because I got official notice from my first choice journal yesterday.

Pikey... I've heard a lot of people say that email is fine, and that's what I plan to do, particularly since I'm out of the country.

I think late July might be kind of late?
My school said send them out early July and try to be available to interview in market in early August before school starts.


But before we find out whether we've made journals or not?  I would hate to jump the gun and lessen my chances if a particular firm really wants journal experience and assumes I'm not going to have it, since it's not on my resume.

Good point.  Maybe I'll go ahead and get started writing cover letters.

I don't see why you couldn't simply send an updated resume if you made a journal.  If anything it's more time they spend looking at your name.

I haven't really heard of too many firms caring about journals.
