I considered clerking.  Kicking around the idea of academia at some point.  I didnt apply this year though (may at some point in the future though).  I went to the clerkship coordinator and she told me I didnt have a shot at DDC or SDNY because of my journal experiences.  Clerking isnt something I have a strong desire to do for the experience itself, and, without the significant resume boost of a federal district/appellate, it wasnt worth it.  I am also not really willing to leave NY or DC. 

I would think youd be able to do something at the local level or in one of the special federal courts if you are ranked/on a journal though...

60K/year plus 20K from undergrad.  And, yea, I live a few blocks from the school and buy whatever I want when I want it (I do have SA money set aside though in case my firm delays start dates)

you should get a job that pays better...

And, stop complaining about people whining about being broke and unemployed when you are complaining about being broke and underemployed.

Studying and Exam Taking / Re: What constitutes "good grades"?
« on: February 16, 2009, 07:30:05 PM »
After reading this thread, I figured out why at least one person wasnt top 30% at that school...

Yeah, and you had to resort to personal attacks instead of attacking my argument.  I am still an Attorney-At-Law while you're still slaving away in law school.  Good luck to you in the real world:  you'll need it.

Sorry for the personal attack, I will keep personal attacks out of it (although you seemed to be pretty hypocritical in your reply). 

Regardless, your argument makes no sense.  If the same curve is used in the part time program as the full time program, like you said it was, the same amount of A's are given out in the part time as the full time.  Therefore, part time students are at absolutely no disadvantage in the class rankings compared to full time students.  You have exactly the same shot at getting the same grades.  It makes absolutely no sense to suggest that if the same curve is used and you are competing with only part time students that you are some how disadvantaged in the process.

Im still slaving away in law school?  I dont think so.  I already have a job lined up with a firm that pays 160K plus full market bonuses (not skadden bonuses but still good enough).  I have ten credits left to graduate, and I go to a school that fully embraces grade inflation.  At an absolute minimum, I will graduate top 15% of my class and be welcomed with open arms to the firm.
