Do you have any idea if any Mercer 1L's worked as summer associates for a large firm? Is that an impossible goal coming from Mercer? I heard from another Mercer Grad that there are some 1L summer opportunities in Macon, but rarely in Atlanta. Does the Career Services Office assist you in securing paid summer employment?

Have you guys read this article on TLS? What do you think about the students approach? I think he has some valid points, but I am anticipating my social life will suffer a little while in law school. However, I like the view of always keeing the end game in sight, which is the final exam. Any thoughts?

Law School Applications / Re: Read my LOCI and I'll be your LSD BFF
« on: February 12, 2009, 10:58:53 AM »
I was going to start a new topic for this but I can just ask here.

It has been 3 months since going complete at some of my tope schools. Does this warrent a LOCI? I feel like they are going to make a decision by the end of the month, so I am wondering if a LOCI would help or hurt. Any thoughts?

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / JD/MBA question
« on: February 08, 2009, 08:24:08 AM »
So how does getting a 2L summer BIGLAW job fit in with a joint degree? If you go JD/MBA, you will have to go another year to graduate. Do firms hire you for 3L summer work with the intention of you comming aboard after the 4th year for the MBA? Or do most JD/MBA's not go into Biglaw and are more concerned with getting into Business. Wht sort of jobs are out there for a JD/MBA?

I just got my acceptance to Mercer!!  I am excited and am planning to attend the Preview Day on the 20th. I am waiting to hear back from GSU and Emory as well. 

If I attend, I will have to commute to Macon from Atlanta. What are the class schedules like? Are you able to have all your classess on Monday, Tues. and Wed. ? If this was the case, I could rent a room somewhere and stay in Macon for 3 days out of the week. Is this possible? I did see a house for rent for $300 a month..any thoughts?

Do you think it means anything when schools send you specific scholarship opportunities? Maybe I am reading too much into this...

Financial Aid / Re: Foreign earned income

Thanks. Is it just that my wife and I are making income in British pounds and if I convert to dollars, it seems like we are making a lot and I am afraid I won't get a loan!
