I already accepted a regular member position, and I was just asking whether I would regret accepting it.
I knew that I couldn't pass it up because I'd never know if it would be worth it, but now that I've accepted it I'm just curious as to whether anyone out there thinks it's more trouble/work than it's worth.
It's totally more trouble than it's worth, but you would regret not doing it for sure.

Do it or you will regret it.  :-\

I didn't out you! How dare you besmirch me like that! Also, you never want to go out anymore and it makes bears sad.  :'( :'( :'(

But yeah. I haven't seen any reason to stay anonymous on that site. Who cares, really - as long as I am not outed IRL, it's ok. Even if I am, it's not the end of the world. I don't post anything compromising.

XOXO used to be really informative back in the day, now it's just flame. I'm not sure most posters on that site have ever been to law school.

Have you tried to transfer to BC/BU?

BU unfortunately doesn't have a PT program if you can't swing FT.
I'm a BU student and I know at least one person who works Biglaw in Boston while attending. Apply as a transfer, see if you get in, then make your work/life decisions. The options you get by going to a T20/25 school over than a T3/4 school are incomprable, especially ITE.

I'm a BU student too and I know who you're talking about.  That person was sent to BU by the biglaw firm.  All I'm saying is that OP should have a heads up about the lack of a PT program, which (s)he apparently does.
This is all true.

Are you a 1L?

What I mean is that I am outgoing.

Damn, that's not bad.  If I wasn't so lazy, I would get started today.

I bet there's a ton of lawyers from (Midwest home state) here in Chicago.
Ya, just do it whenever you get the chance. You know I'm a social gunner, so I had to do this. You might not need to.

Has anyone gone abroad in Law School? Do you think it was worth it?

28
God, I don't know why I never thought of searching for undergrad alums in my preferred market, since I went to one of those undergrads that's worth going to precisely because it has a tight alumni network.  And probably half the ones that didn't go into academia are lawyers.

Thanks for the idea.  I suck at this.  :-[
You are very welcome! :)

Something like this:



Dear Mr. [Baller]:

My name is Bearly Legal, and I am an alumnus of [TTTTTTT UG School] - I graduated Summa Cum Laude in 2005. I am a rising 2L at Boston University School of Law, and an intern at the [Big Government Agency]'s Office. I came across your profile on the [Mottles &  Boddels LLP] homepage during my preparation for on-campus interviewing later this summer, and noticed that we have a little bit in common.

I am interested in litigation, and worked for over two years as a paralegal at the litigation department at [NYC Biglaw LLP] in New York and the [Government Prosecutor]'s Office. Iím interested in continuing my career at a place like [Mottles &  Boddels LLP]. Would you be willing to share your thoughts about working at [Mottles]? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Best,
Bearly Legal
