My Firefox profile got deleted and I need to find a website I had bookmarked. I'm sure some of you have seen it. I don't remember what it's called, but you can search a database of law employers, with job postings, including firms, government, and public interest. You can use the search function to see both which schools a particular employer recruits at and which employers recruit at a particular law school. Does anyone have this? Please?!

So why is GMU's 1L attrition so high? 10.1%

Do people transfer out a lot?

Denials / Any public interest rejects from UCLA?
« on: April 01, 2005, 04:01:02 PM »
Hi, everyone. Has anyone who applied to the public interest program at UCLA been rejected yet?

Alright. Loyola (CA) = regional. USD = national. Why? Does anyone know the criteria this magazine uses to determine whether a school is regional or national? I used to think it had to do with the percentage of grads who stayed in-state after graduation. But that makes less sense to me now. So how does US News figure this out and how useful is this categorization? 

According to an associate dean of something-or-other I spoke to today. Then, knowing that I knew that she knew my admission decision, she told me I could appeal starting May 1.

Denials / My first bona fide ding

Washington & Lee, dated 3-17. "The admissions committee was faced with a number of very difficult choices, and we were unable to offer admission to many good applicants." But they didn't say I was one of them!

Anyone else go to decision Sunday at Hastings? Man.... I just want this entire process to be over with.

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Now that IP is passť
« on: March 11, 2005, 12:18:37 AM »
What is the next big market or desirable specialty for lawyers, given that the current interest in IP will lead to a glut in that field?

Well. I applied to the part-time program. LSAC file was sent like 2 months ago. Online status check has been at "applied" ever since. So I sent an e-mail a couple of weeks ago. No response. I sent another one a couple of days ago because I can't find the admissions office phone #. No response. So I finally called another office at GULC and got transferred to the very helpful Katrina.

Apparently I shouldn't have paid the application fee and sent a fee waiver request at the same time. It bungled up the system. Even though they told me a long time ago that they couldn't refund a fee once it was paid, my file was apparently waiting for fee waiver approval.

Good news: My file is now correctly classified as complete.

Bad news: The delay may cost me, and I'm already at the very margin of possible acceptance.
