Current Law Students / Re: Dogs
« on: March 28, 2005, 08:12:50 AM »
Like everyone else, I agree that dogs are great.  Our adorable black lab has been my companion during my husband's medical school days and now as he starts his residency internship and I start law school I know she'll continue to be my best friend and companion.  It is so nice to know someone will be waiting for you when you get home, and someone to hang out at my feet when I am studying.  And, (depending on what kind of dog you have) they are the best work out partners - she never complains about how early we have to get up!

I suggest some good obedience training and a little TLC.  I really don't think you will regret it.

Be careful how early you notify them.  My employers knew that I had been applying to law school and that I would be following my husband to wherever his residency took him.  I decided to do them a favor and let them know early when my last day would be so that they could work on hiring my replacement and I could train her and make the transition easier on my bosses (I am currently a legal secretary in a large firm). It didn't work that way.  In short - don't give any more notice than you are required to, because there is a great potential that your remaining time will be miserable...may as well lessen the misery as much as possible.

Thanks MeliBelly and shadowcreeper!

Keep your heads up.  Gauging from the activity LSN, it looks like Utah has been pretty busy in the last few weeks, so I am sure you will all hear something soon.  Best of luck to all of you!  :)

Since jbm's post turned to "." here is a new thread.

I got in! YAHOOOO! Sure was scary when status changed to decision on Friday with no phone call. See my LSN account for details.
