There's a new program which starts real soon (maybe this year, maybe next year) that will allow you to get both degrees in three years.  However, you have to be an exceptional candidate for both the law school and Kelley, and you have to have extensive work experience to prove you can handle the workload.

Taco, are you speaking of the B-school joint program or the SPEA program?  I know that the MBA program just started an intensive 3 year joint law program, but I hadn't heard anything about SPEA moving in that direction (and I had Professor Barnes last semester so I'd think he would have mentioned something).  I wouldn't qualify either way, but just curious...

I'm acutally a joint student (MPA/JD) and started the MPA program this past year.  The ability to get both degrees in 4 years is what really drew me to IU.  Plus, I really liked Bloomington when I visited, and the admissions people were great. 

I'm living over in the Crossing, which is close to the mall.  I would definitely look for someplace closer to the law school/downtown if I had the option.  Buses stop running at around midnight (although there is a rumored "drunk bus" that was never there when I needed it), so it would be nice to be within walking distance of the school and the bars.

Why factors lead you to choose Indiana?

24
As will I.  I'm thinking there aren't many future IUB students using this board.

Thanks.  I do like IU's placement though. Job well done ALAMAR!  :)

Previous comment is withdrawn.  I am an idiot and really need to find something better to be doing with my time...

Congrats!  Maybe I'll be seeing you around next year!  Is it a top choice?

Thanks for the input!  Verizon and Cingular both seem like they would offer decent plans. 

Ilsox7- why do you say Verizon over everybody else?  Any particular reasons or just had a good experience with them thus far?

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / summer law firm work
« on: May 26, 2005, 12:53:27 PM »
So I am without a real job this summer and have thought about trying to find some sort of employment (volunteer or paid, doesn't matter at this point) at one of the law firms in the area (all are in small towns...nothing big here).  However, none are actively seeking summer help, and I don't have any experience working in a law related area. 

Would it be worthwhile for me to even inquire at any of these places, and if so, how should I go about doing it?  Call...visit...ect.?  Has anyone tried this before?  I want to minimize my appearance as an idiotic law student wannabe (waste of their valuable time) if I do try. 

Thanks!
