Job Search / Political Jobs

Hi everyone -

I haven't posted much for awhile, and apologies if this has been addressed but I have been living under the 1L rock for awhile.  My question is about summer jobs that indicate political orientation.  Do you think it is a bad idea to take a job that clearly indicates your political leanings?  How much of an issue do you think that would be to 2L summer employers?  I know it can be hard to get summer jobs as a 1L under the best of circumstances and I'm at a T2.  Does anyone have any experience in this area, or know of anyone who has experience?

Incoming 1Ls / Summer Reading?

Has anyone received any summer reading assignments from their school yet?

General Off-Topic Board / Happy 4th of July!!

Happy 4th (in advance) everyone!!!!  (This is coming early since I know a lot of people will be off work/on vacation.)

I hope everyone is enjoying the summer so far.  :)  Let's all have fun this weekend, and hopefully take a second to reflect on our great country.  :)

General Off-Topic Board / Vice Presidents
« on: June 30, 2008, 06:31:19 AM »
Anyone have any opinions on vice presidential picks for Obama or McCain?  I would make a poll but there are probably too many possibilities at this point.

(I'm having a slow work day.)

Incoming 1Ls / Philadelphia Schools

I'm not sure which board I should post this on, but I thought I'd try here.  I'm going to be looking for a roommate, male or female, in Philadelphia (I will be at Temple) and was wondering if anyone from any of the Philly area schools is also and would like to exchange emails and see if we might be a good match?  I figured I'd try LSD before Craigslist haha.

Incoming 1Ls / Housing Questions - Off Campus
« on: May 07, 2008, 07:30:14 AM »
At what point should I begin seriously looking for apartments?  My orientation starts in mid August, and I am close enough to the city I will be attending school (New York to Philly) that I could go multiple weekends.  I have never had to do this before, so I'm wondering when most people start looking.

Also, at what point do our Stafford loan funds become availabe?  (More to the point, will I have to pay the deposits out of pocket?)

Any advice is greatly appreciated!

Law School Admissions / Withdrawing after deposit...
« on: May 01, 2008, 02:55:31 PM »
Hi everyone,

Is it ok to withdraw via email from a school you already put down a deposit at?  Or is that expected to be more formal?

I attend a top law school.  Most student have jobs, but I suspect there are more of us than you'd think without them.

But no one talks about it.

I get asked at least 5 times each day, "Where are you working?" and I have no answer.  I think it's kind of a rude question.  They could at least say, "Where do you want to work?" or "Do you know where you're working?"

It's the first question any student (or faculty member) asks.  They randomly bring it up when it's no where near the topic we were discussing.

It's extremely frustrating.

If I can't come up with something snappy to say, I'm going to end up hitting someone.

Doesn't it feel strange to see the next crop of applicants appearing on LSD?  (People taking the June LSAT?)

I've been thinking about nothing but law school apps for a year now, and it's so strange that there are people just starting the process!   :o  It kind of reminds me of how I felt my senior year of college, during the "prospective student weekend" in the spring.   :D

Incoming 1Ls / Study Aids
« on: April 12, 2008, 11:26:02 AM »
I'm going to try to buy some study aids off of eBay/Amazon while I still have income.  I figure I'll feel it less that way.   ;)

Any current students recommend particular study aids for particular courses?
