Job Search / Re: Federal Public Defender - worthwhile?

I interned during 1L summer in a very busy Division.  While a love of litigation is important, be ready to explain why you want to rep. indigent defendants.

I wouldn't say low-level drugs were our specialty, but guys coming over the border with hundreds of pounds.  Also, a lot were felon in possession of a firearm.  We also had a lot of illegal reentry charges, but those are cut and dry and usual go to CJA attorneys.
That said, I did a lot of work on suppression of evidence, prison conditions, wiretaps, and fraud against the government.  It was interesting, but I didn't spend nearly any time in court.  If you just want to sit in court, a judge might be better.  Also the US atty might be better too.  They required security clearances in my town and while the people were waiting to get approved they had nothing to do but sit in civil and criminal trials.

Yes, I did.  Although our a$$hat Torts 2 prof (an OSU guy, mind you) did all he could to screw our class over before his contract wasn't renewed.

Perhaps that explains my hate.

Personally, I think that's a restrained, well-moderated response, but what do I know.

If it had been infants wearing OSU clothes being shoveled in to furnaces, I may have objected, but that's a tough balancing test.

well, results are up.  What's interesting to me is the number of firms that converted from being at school to just doing resume collects.  I would have structed my bids a little differently, but that's life.

Anyone know how long it takes the resume collects to get back to you, if they do at all?

Subsequent to my posting, the interviews have dropped off totally, the CSO sent an email saying they'd post tomorrow, and the Dean sent an email about a town hall during the first week of classes.

before I lost my password, I saw some apt. listings on the webstac thing.  They seemed overpriced to me from comparing to craigslist, but they're there.

I might be outing myself if someone works hard enough, but I wanted to give people a morale boost.  A firm cancelled their on-campus interviews with my probable soon-to-be-school, but I was told they wanted to setup a phone interview with me. 

I guess this gives a little support to the notion that transfers can at least get a shot at things.  Good luck, everyone!
