Current Law Students / Re: ITT: Biggest legal scam in history

I'm gonna go ahead and say T4 law schools are the biggest legal scam in history (I haven't read through this thread, this might have already been mentioned).

You missed perhaps the biggest plus with Midlaw: actual potential to make partner. 

I'm going to a Midlaw firm this summer (although not within your definition of Midlaw; it's got a bit over 100 lawyers), and they take small SA classes and a limited number of associates b/c they plan on most going the partner track.  This is the inverse of the biglaw formula, which is basically accumulating a massive amount of associate labor with the expectation they'll all quit within a couple of years.

We're in almost the exact same situation.  I did the T4 > T20 thing as well, and got really good grades at the T20 (I'm pretty sure we're at the same school actually).

I'm sort of confused about how I should do this as well.  I've got a job for 2L summer, so I guess the next time I'll be sending out resumes is when I'm applying for clerkships.  Anyone have advice for clerkship apps?  I'll definitely be sending my first year transcript so the judges can see those grades, but should I put the old school on my resume as well?

Dude... with 40k tuition, you shouldn't feel guilty about not donating.

Probably b/c my slackass prof held it up.  I just got my last grade back from him early this week.

Ok... sending an article every once in a while is fine.  But calling or dropping by their office once a month?  That's psycho.  Especially the dropping by the office thing; I wouldn't even do this with my good friends. 

Law Review. 

EIC will be hard to get, but a staff member position on the LR would probably be better than most ed board positions on a secondary journal (maybe not EIC of a secondary, but you'd get roughly the same benefit from a lesser position on the LR ed board, which means less work for the same prestige).

Yes.  I feel your pain.

I'm still waiting on one of my grades.... I know one guy who is waiting on a grade from a class with SIX PEOPLE.   

They should really put some more pressure on some of the slackass adjuncts taking their sweet time.
