2L job search / Re: Ranks on OCI Resume
« on: July 11, 2008, 05:34:06 PM »
I spoke with OCS and they emphasized that the decision to put rank on my resume is totally up to me, but if I do decide to put it on there it needs to go on like this: 32/200.  Some of the firms I am applying to prefer top 15% or top 20%, I am not worried about being 1% outside there criteria, I just don't necessarily know if I should draw attention to it on the resume...


Employers doing OCI at your school may know that a x.xx GPAis good, but they may not. I would assume that they don't, and put your rank. If they don't they may think your GPA is a lower rank than it is. Don't let them asssume, its just as likley they will assume something bad rather than good.

That is true, but couldnt employers also assume the GPA is a higher rank...for the first time this past year my school bumped the curve to 3.2....I am not trying to hide my rank, just not sure if a should draw attention to it when it isn't great.

Are class ranks expected to be on a resume submitted for OCI?  I know OCS says it is our decision, but I just wasn't sure if it is normal to keep it an unremarkable rank on there.  I am barely outside the top 15% at a T2, and I think just listing my GPA would look better than the GPA followed by a rank which it outide the top 15%...any thoughts?

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: Seton Hall!

i'm an incoming p/t day student at shu...do you get the same opportunities, such as classes, journals, jobs, that other p/t evening and f/t day students get?

yes, for the most part everything is the same....there are some employers who limit who they will look at for 1L summer employment to only f/t students but that is rare.

And I assume PT day students would have to take Crim Pro and Torts over the summer, if you are planning to transfer to FT?

nope, you take crim and torts 2L...you do take 5 credits over the summer but those two classes are not offered during summer session.
