this whole site reeks of weak, baa-ing little sheep looking for reassurance. (watch my rep fall another few points, it was -3 as of this posting).  "the sting in any rebuke is the truth". -benjamin franklin

My negative rep destroys yours!

And for that, I commend you.  Better say something offensive, quick.  Alienate a whole tier worth of students or something.

What the hell!!??  Why is my rep going in the wrong direction?  I went from -30 when I wrote this to -16???  Surely I'm not that charming.

Yeah, thanks. That clears up everything except the analogy of male/female restrooms to Prelaw/Students and Graduates sides of the board. I'm not sure I understand that analogy.

I just wanted to chime in on what I've come to realize is "My Kind of a Topic Thread."  To my learned colleague who is having a bit of trouble with the male/female restroom analogy, you need to put the analogy in context before you grapple with its meaning.  Imagine, if you will humor me, that you had just completed your last final for the semester and are on your way to the nearest bar.  As per tradition, upon entering said bar, you immediately order 9 shots of tequila and 3 limes for good measure.  After inhaling these shots, you next are the recipient of 4 Irish car bombs from that weird girl/guy who is trying to take advantage of your obvious intoxication. 

This is where it gets a bit tricky.  You've consumed all of the above alcohol and are on the verge of puking your guts out.  As you run to the bathroom, you have all of 1 second to discern which is the appropriate venue for your gender.  More focused on avoiding potential disaster, you run into the women's bathroom (I'm a guy so go with me on this one ladies) and do your business.  After defiling this washroom, 5 angry "Butch"-looking lesbians take offense and beat you within an inch of your life.  THIS is the negative association the OP was looking to convey with entering the opposite sex's bathroom. 

Now if we take this a bit further, we can infer that the OP is telling 0L's that 5 angry "Butch"-looking lesbians will beat the ever loving hell out of those brave little 0L's who post on this side of the board. 

Questions?  Comments?  Anecdotes? Songs?

Job Search / Re: Is there such thing as 0L summer jobs?

You can seek work as a paralegal, but you will not be a very attractice candidate because of your plan to go to law school (I know this from experience). Check with small firms, maybe. If you want to volunteer, give your local legal aid or public defender office a call. Some of them even pay.

Also, there seem to be a lot of law students who think pre-law school legal experience is worthless. I'm not sure where that attitude comes from, but it is dead wrong. The practice of law is a business with employees, routines, and a particularized way of doing things. The sooner you get some law office experience, the further ahead of your classmates you will be in what matters most, which is the practice of law.

Good luck.

you are dead wrong.  emptying trash cans isn't "experiencing the law" and will give you 0 advantage over those classmates who did anything else as an undergrad.  if you want to get further ahead of your classmates, all you need to do is do well in your first year of law school.  an employer will take a student with good grades in law school over one who "worked in a law firm" since he was able to walk. 

and like i had said in another post, a 0L is about as useful as a one-legged man in an ass kicking contest.  the only "jobs" they are competent to perform could also be performed by a well-trained monkey.

One more thing though, are there such things as 0L law student summer/year jobs? 

If you are a 0L you aren't a law student... so no there is no such thing as a 0L "Law Student" job.  The only use a firm would have for you is to refill coffee, take lawyers' laundry to the cleaners, etc. - and they can hire high school dropouts to do that.  You need to know at least something about the law to have a law student job.

... becuase there is nothing wrong with my logical reasoning, there must be something wrong with yours to assume that my being waitlisted must be as a result of my logical reasoning, when in reality it has nothing to do with it.

Don't worry, I will have no problem succeeding in law school, my logical reasoning is just appears that you need to stand on a box and waive your little defend the second chancers flag.

Awww.  0L speak is so cute. 

Current Law Students / Re: research assistant - how to put on resume?
« on: March 08, 2007, 09:16:33 PM »
I just got a position as a research assistant to one of my professors. I'm assuming that this should be added to my resume, but I'm not sure what format to use.

My current format is:

Name of Employer                2007
Title of Position

What is correct?

___ Law School
Research Assistant to Professor ____

Professor ______
Research Assistant

something else?

HA!!  I know the answer and I'm not going to tell you!

You mean besides the extensive recommendations in PLSII?

this is so true, if you need help finding recommendations after reading that book... might i suggest you try a different career path?

Why is there even debate about this??!!?  The answer is OBVIOUSLY UNLV - You are in Vegas for f*cks sake!
