Incoming 1Ls / Re: 'BigLaw' Who Wants it? Who has it? Why?
« on: May 11, 2005, 08:26:02 AM »
It seems to me that the Biglaw jobs are filled by people who haven't had a "real" job yet, are swayed by the fancy lunches and courtside tickets, and don't yet realize how little time for a social life working 70 hour weeks + saturdays leaves you. That's 8am - 8pm M-F. Plus 8am - 6pm Saturday. When do you think you will be able to enjoy that $125k salary they offer? 1 day a week? I would rather work as a garbage man or a janitor than work 70 hours a week and have no life.

I don't need to be super rich. I'd just like to find a happy medium between the guy working 70 hours a week making $120,000, and the guy working 40 hours a week making $40,000. Give me 45-50 hours and $60,000 and I'm happy. I think smart saving and investing is the way to be rich without working a shitload.

More than I should have. I was shocked to be honest considering my numbers were borderline to even be accepted. I'm too afraid to give specifics in case of any stalking administrators etc...

If I can't find a law office that pays over $50,000 starting and doesn't have me work more than 45-50 hours a week, I'll count on you guys to join my new firm :)

10+ hour days is ridiculous unless you don't mind having no time for yourself and your family.

WOOHOO! I got accepted! I proved my own thread wrong. How ironic. By some miracle they offered money as well. I can't believe it.

My appstatus went from referred to "decision", and I was expecting the rejection. Lo and behold, a miracle happens. Good luck to the rest of you and if any of you get in and decide to go there, I'll see you there :)

And to whatever officer told me no more acceptances, poo on you.

At this point I would say to just wait another week before contacting them. They should be able to determine how many slots they have open by the end of this week, and offers should be sent out next week for any lucky enough to get in this late. If I don't hear anything by this time next week I'm going to call.

Yeah, the guy that got accepted applied in January though. I honestly don't see anyone who applied in February that got in except for one person who applied on the 3rd of Feb and had a 167 lsat. Seems that anyone else who applied after that date was wasting their money.

Don't read this message board maybe?

Damn. There's a prime example of why people hate lawyers and frivolous lawsuits. They weren't required to wear what the book said, it was just meant as advice to help them do their job better. If they want to try and sell products to white people, you have to appear as though you fit in. That's a basic tenet of good selling technique: relate to people. If you show up in flowing robes and a 12" fro, the average white person is not going to want to buy anything from you and that's just common sense.

Yeah, I had another post title "OSU Moritz a black hole" because I've sent 2 e-mails, and left a phone call and never heard back from anyone. I finally called and got through to someone, but they certainly don't respond to e-mails and messages very well.
