Law School Admissions / WSWD?: Resume... Are dates inclusive?
« on: November 22, 2004, 08:45:58 PM »
I worked June July and August of 2002

Do i write  06/02 - 09/02

OR  06/02 - 08/02   ?

My brain likes the first option because 9-6=3 which is the number of months i worked there.

Anyone know the "correct" way?

Law School Admissions / J.D. Worthless if not practicing law?
« on: November 20, 2004, 10:23:05 PM »
So lets say that Ol' Willy makes it to his 2L summer associate job and absolutely HATES the work. He graduates and says screw this lawyering business....

Is a J.D. worth anything in the business world for non-lawyer jobs?

Choosing the Right Law School / 7-14 with money Vs. Columbia with no $
« on: November 20, 2004, 10:15:56 PM »
Willy applied ED at Columbia and is now slightly regretting it.
The budget for CLS is 55k/year.

So who here would take CLS with no $$ vs.  any of the 7-14s with $$ ?

Law School Admissions / A helpful traffic infraction tip from Willy.
« on: November 20, 2004, 09:34:07 PM »
When looking up one's various drug and alcohol related traffic infractions it is as simple as googling "County Clerk of Courts" without the quotes.

One should then easily be able to find that county's clerk of courts website...and online traffic infraction database.

//replace County with the county where the infraction took place.

Stay tuned for more helpful hints from Willy.

Law School Admissions / Resume accurate enough?
« on: November 20, 2004, 06:03:58 PM »
So i have all my jobs listed on my resume like this:

07/03 - 11/03  BLAH BLAH INC.

I worked a temp job for only one week (in fact it may have only been 3 days I really dont remember)
and I listed it as follows:

05/01  SOandSo Temp Agency

Should I have been more specific?   like...

05/03/01 - 05/07/01    SOandSo Temp Agency

It didn't seem like a big deal at the time, and I couldn't remember the exact date, just that it was in May of 2001.  Perhaps I shouldn't have even listed it at all...but its too late now

Could this get me in trouble for Character and fitness if i dont send in a correction?
I think its obvious that I didn't mean to misrepresent myself as 1 month of WE means nothing....but now im ultra paranoid.
