2L job search / Re: Callback interviews
« on: September 21, 2006, 12:20:58 AM »
This is horrible advice.  I always send thank you notes.  I sent thank you notes to every interviewer I've met at every callback.  And they have ALWAYS resulted in offers, and the people have ALWAYS complimented me on the nice notes I send.

And these aren't at the supposed 'small firms'.  These were Wilmer Hale, Kirkland and Ellis, Proskauer Rose, Mintz Levin.

Send the notes, its a great idea.  Take it from my ACTUAL experiences.

Studying and Exam Taking / Re: Adderall-Law school finals/studying

Dude, who gives a *&^%.  If the pills help you, take them.  I know a ton of people who do coke and study, so I am hardly going to condemn anyone for doing AD.  And before anyone jumps my *&^% for supporting this, I study high on life + coffee.

Here's the best advice I can give you about law school: Act like a normal person.  Using 'visceral' and 'running counter' will make you sound like all the other gunners :)  Hell, I don't even proof read the stuff I write here.

If you want to prepare for law school, go put yourself around a bunch of people you can't stand and try to smile continuously ;)

I think we're determining that this comes down to the whim of the employers :(

General Board / Describing Summer Internship on Resume
« on: July 11, 2006, 12:34:44 PM »
I'm working in house at a software company as a 1L Summer.  I was hired as the IP intern, but I really do all sorts of things.  In fact, I've touched a ton of different areas, very broadly.

Anyone have any advice how to succicntly describe this on a resume, or should I just say the old student of all fields, master of none?

T. Durden,

Ya, to a degree I think you're right - who better to give the opinion of what it's like than people doing.  However, I think we'd agree the recruiting experience is wildly different dependant on your credentials.  I guess I take solace in that hiring partner's quote because that more accurately fits my resume than a phrase like "Top 10% at a T14" :(
