General Board / Re: Advice for a 1L summer
« on: February 05, 2007, 06:39:47 PM »
I have no experience with this so it is just an opinion. You did very well this semester. you might want to go ahead and take advantage of it by applying with a bunch of high paying firms in chicago and seeing if u can get an in somewhere. How cool would it be to lock up a job before you even get another semesters grades.

1L job search / Interview question
« on: January 30, 2007, 09:33:19 PM »
ok i have a question. What do u say when an interviewer asks u what your biggest weakness is? I hate saying something gay like i work to hard or I get to wrapped up in my work. Does anyone have a better answer.

General Board / Re: Doing worse second semester
« on: January 30, 2007, 09:24:23 PM »
i think my grades will be much worse. I cant seem to get motivated this semester. We also have legal research and writing as a graded class this semester and it is by far my worst subject. On top of all that u never know if u wil be able to nail down a few A's like i did last semester. The whole process seems so random.

i appreciate the advice. do either of u know if u make more money with a law degree than if u just have an undergrad degree. It would suck to know that i went to law school and took out 60k in debt to get a job i could have already gotten. At the same time 82000 a year not having to do legal research and writing all the time will prob make up for it.
