How deep do you think the Falcons will go in the playoffs?  Super Bowl?  Conference Championships?  Abrupt wild card loss?

And will a case of the sophomore slump hit Matt Ryan, or is he 4 real?

They suck. They'll lose in the first round.

Ryan will only get better next year, because he'll have better teammates to work with.

1L job search / Re: Political Jobs
« on: December 26, 2008, 10:39:24 PM »
Hi everyone -

I haven't posted much for awhile, and apologies if this has been addressed but I have been living under the 1L rock for awhile.  My question is about summer jobs that indicate political orientation.  Do you think it is a bad idea to take a job that clearly indicates your political leanings?  How much of an issue do you think that would be to 2L summer employers?  I know it can be hard to get summer jobs as a 1L under the best of circumstances and I'm at a T2.  Does anyone have any experience in this area, or know of anyone who has experience?
Thanks!

No. I worked for an organization with a very strong political leaning. I don't think it seriously affected my OCI interviews.

Yeah I think it might be my best grade (which might speak badly about my other classes!), but it was without question the most miserable 32 hours of my life.  It took me at least 8 hours and three-times-through reading the cases before I was able to figure out what the hell was going on.  That reading was tough!


Is anyone else going to bar review tonight?


Also, on three occasions I thought for sure I figured out who you 2l/3l people were, and on each occasion I was totally wrong.  I tried to ask kind of inconspicuous questions, and I completely failed each time!  I apparently do not know you people.

PM me... I want to know who you thought I was... and I'll tell you who togbra is...

If you have a professor that stressed making a checklist (as mind did), I would take that to heart. In other words, use as much of the packet as possible. I didn't do this and my grade was crap.

Weren't you in Bederman?

He stressed a checklist?

I only used half of the cases in the packet. My grade was pretty darned good.

Ha, well, it could have also just written a crappy exam. But yeah, there was a day where he talked about making a checklist. But, guess it doesn't matter now. The 1Ls are done, and its off to a fun semester of Con Law.

Yeah, I dunno, another guy (who you surely know) didn't even go to most of the classes and he got an A from Bederman. Knowing Bederman, there was surely a method to the madness, but from outside his head, it just all seems kind of random.

So, legal methods...  Great exam, or the greatest exam?

Greatest.

Awesome. I'm psyched about the new thread name.

ITT, Guess What Grade Reezy Gets in Torts.  GO!

Which prof?

Your post makes me full much better.  I would be glad to take a midlaw job.

Back to Torts.

NP. This thread should probably be titled something more like, "Emory 1Ls and 2Ls having a chat to themselves and occasionally Taking Questions
