The firm I summered at (V25) took 3 1Ls out of 16 total. One from Chicago, one from Northwestern and one from Michigan. They all got offers. Don't firms do an OCI for 1Ls shortly after Christmas?
i might be able to but i need the money or the financial aid. I dont think that employers will care if i had a job or summer school. It just seems like summer school would probably be a waste of money since im not planning on graduating early. at the same time im getting a little to old to do the bs summer job thing
I've just heard firms like seeing you did something law related the summer before 2L OCI.
actually i think by most measures UW is the better university (and here i talk across the spectrum of disciplines from law to medicine to business to applied mathematics). when speaking of the law school specifically...what's a couple of points between friends (31 v. 28)? besides ND is on the drops amigo, you cannot deny a 6 point fall hurts! and yet you cannot get yourself to say "ND is not a national school" eventhough you consider every other program not in the T14 a "regional school"....oh except ND. i hope people like you never come to Wisconsin, so if you want to stay in Chi-town and be miserable that sounds fantastic...all the cold minus the skiing. we'll make fun of you when you load the family up on your rusted out honda civic (loans)covered in lame ND alumni stickers (small genitals) and make the trek up north to enjoy the scenery (FIB) only to crawl back to miserable Illinois when the weekend ends (shoot yourself now). as for passing the bar in other states, WI graduates get grandfathered into adjoining state's bars should they want to leave WI (and most do not).
