Pursuing an LLM / Re: NYU/Georgetown Tax LLM Admissions
« on: April 16, 2009, 10:04:36 PM »
"Simply put, you defer (or are deferred mandatorily), you're out, unless the economy comes back. One said, and I quote verbatim, 'You should tell your friends that if a firm defers them they should presume they need a new job.'"

almost every firm is deferring your comments make no sense...

OP, they aren't making you do the public interest route?  So lucky.  If mine had given me that option, Id be at NYU next year as well.

I feel like I hit on you on LSD back before we went to law school?  Possibly a marriage proposal?  (Harvard?)

Ha!  This is highly unlikely.  But I think I appreciate the thought.

haha, damn... I thought I reconnected :(  There was a lady on LSN that is now a 3L and who had a very similar name to yours (maybe the same, I cannot remember).  


hahahah, we will see :)
Oh, that was me when I was a transexual, but I'm living as a man again now, u can still hit on me though  ;)

Thank you for the well wishes.  DudeMan and I go way back (so, while I do not defend him, I definitely don't hate him).  I wish everyone happiness in achieving their goals and genuinely try to remain positive on here (with the exception of the discussions concerning what I consider scams (online/unaccredited schools).

I mean them (the well wishes).  I like you.  I just don't understand how you put up with someone who is so consistently demeaning to others.  But anyway, onwards and upwards!

Aww, thank you Miss P :)  I feel like I hit on you on LSD back before we went to law school?  Possibly a marriage proposal?  (Harvard?)

I just genuinely care about everyone, even if they aren't always the nicest people.  I dont meant to blow his character at all, but he has been very supportive and extremely friendly through PM's on here since day one.  So, while his comments aren't always the nicest, I think he is genuinely a nice person.  But, I agree, he can be mean on here.

I'm sorry to hear that your start date was deferred, and I hope that you keep your job.  I don't have any problem with your career goals.  I do wish you wouldn't defend your buddy TheDudeMan when he calls someone a moron for coming out of UT this year without a job.  You know better, obviously, and you should be willing to tell him so.

Not bitter, but not entirely happy.  The only thing I wanted going into law school was to work at a big firm when I graduated.  I knew it would be a huge gamble, but I banked on the fact that I would succeed.  Had no back up plan whatsoever.  Anyway, ended up with the grades I needed (top 10% from top 20 school) and the economy tanked.  I have an offer from an amazing firm, but my start date is delayed.  looking at jobs to fill the time gap reminds me how scary the prospect of having the job canceled actually is.  Absolutely no desire to do anything but work for a large firm. 

And, for anyone that might be rude in response to that, it is not because I care about money or am a huge snob, it is just that I need the big firm on my resume to open doors and get me my dream job.

Online Law Schools / Re: Non-Bar Law Degree
« on: March 15, 2009, 04:10:33 PM »
Wow, way to dig up posts from three months ago and attempt to get me into a debate.  I'm not doing getting into this argument.  This is clearly no way to convince you that going to a bad school is a bad idea.  I'm looking around my school name and watching kids less than 70 days from graduation that do not have jobs yet and really dont have leads.  They went to a good school.  How are people from non-accredited schools going to find anything to do in this economy?  If you want to take a gamble, take it.  I wont try to persuade you otherwise.

If you want a JD in lieu of a masters why dont you actually get a JD instead of a crappy/expensive piece of paper from a fake school?
I got one or two questions for you. What is the difference in the Faculties of these schools? Do they also give fake instructions?

My post is like three months old.  Im not re-reading this crap so that I can have an enlightened argument with you.  Online schools dont have the quality of professors and dont provide any job opportunities.  Thats it.  Its a scam and people should seriously think twice about signing up for anything like that.  Non-T14 schools are a huge gamble as it is, unaccredited online schools are almost not even a gamble.  They are a virtually guaranteed loss.

Job Search / Re: firstlawjob.com a godsend or a gimmick

Guarantee that Dudeman doesn't have a job or a girlfriend.

I think I actually met his girlfriend.  She was really cute.  Maybe I am wrong and it wasnt actually Dudeman, but I am pretty sure Im right.

Current Law Students / Re: Is it ever ok to renege?
« on: March 11, 2009, 01:05:35 PM »
I would have had similar thoughts my first year.  The chances of there not being someone at Job A that knows someone at Job B is extremely slim.  If you irritate the right person, you can seriously screw up your career.  I worked with one attorney that almost every one of my 3L OCI interviews knew.  If I had pissed that girl off, by not doing an assignment, etc., they would have heard about it and I never would have gotten a job.  When you get into the realm of competitive jobs (like a lot of the 1L government jobs are), you get into an even more selective group.  The best government jobs and the best firm jobs contain numerous grads from the same school and way too many people that know each other.
