Incoming 1Ls / Re: Summer work?
« on: April 17, 2005, 02:12:35 PM »
As a current 1L, my advice to you would be this:  make a bunch of money this summer to cut down on your loans.  That's what I did, and I was very pleased.  No trouble getting a summer law job for the summer after 1L without any legal experience to speak of. 

Good luck!

This depends so much on your employer.  I told mine and they acted like children--got mad and said to leave that day, even though I had meetings scheduled and had a lot of wrap up work left to do.  It wasn't because they were happy to get rid of me, either, I had just gotten a merit raise and was nationaly recognized for my work within the company.  I still got paid, though, because they didn't want me to go get unemployment.  :)

I don't think that they use this information in that way.  Schools want to know who their big competitors are so that they can tailor admissions efforts and market the school accordingly. 

Actually, talking on your cell while you walk is considered LESS safe, not more.  It makes you seem pre-occupied/not alert.  The best thing you can do is walk alone only when you must, look all around (criminals don't want to think that you could identify them if you got away), and avoid unsafe areas. 

If someone makes you feel uncomfortable, look them in the face and start to memorize what they look like.  They will see it in your face and move on to easier prey.

As for a self defense class...they are way fun.  You'll probably feel more secure if you take one. 

Oh, another thing I just remembered---if you have a car, put a mirror on the trunk so that you can see what's behind you when you're digging in it.  :)
