General Board / Re: Type of sport coat for summer associate?
« on: May 16, 2009, 08:18:36 PM »
Depends on your style and the firm.  J. Press has some great 3/2 button sack sports coats on clearance right now.  Brown is a great sportscoat color.  A subtle plaid is usually well received.  If you don't get a sack style jacket, then get a two button. 

Black/White herringbone in a coarse wool can be a nice look.  And the classic blue blazer with brass buttons is pretty classy.

This is for business casual events, right?

Transferring / Re: Should I transfer?

I would transfer.  You'll get two years in the city you want to practice in to network and clerk and get work experience in your community.

3 points?  That's within your existing margin.  You'll nail it for sure.  Study hard, and good luck!

Re-take, study over summer.  If you take it and fail, you're in the same position as you are if you don't retake.  So shoot for the October LSAT, and study over the summer.

Yield Protection.  Just another way to protect a "rankable" category.

Not necessarily.  Although personally, I'm a fan of the oxford comma.

Strunk & White want the last comma, and that's good enough for me.  Interesting to know that it's optional.  I generally think that more commas are better.  Put, commas everywhere, that you want, to, it's fun,!

It is an awfully good thing that I can write well where it counts, apparently: law school final exams, personal statements, cover letters and seminar papers (notice what I did thar with the proper comma use in a sequential list with more than three items? I'm not sure tho, maybey i was suppozed to use a semi-colon instead lolz.)

Shouldn't there be a commma after "cover letters"?

Ferrari, by far.

I think the real issue here is that the school allows for self scheduling of exams.  How can that not be rife with abuse?  To then change an exam in the middle of exam week so that some people see one version and other see a different one.  That is problematic.

Even if everyone reads through all pages, the one in order will take less time to interpret since it is in correct order.  The out of order pages require people to flip through and figure out where each one goes, to make sure they haven't missed anything.

I think that the people in the first exam will have a lower average.  That sucks, unfortunately the solutions are all worse than the problem, because they would hurt the rest of the class.  Pity about that maladministration.

When I was 14, my right eye was "damaged" in a soccer accident.  I had to wear a patch for a while.  Nerdy kid in high school wearing a patch... yeah.  Oh, and also, I fenced.  So there was that too.

So, I just kinda tried to use some judo and run with the taunts instead of getting butthurt by them.
