1L job search / Re: most coveted 1L summer jobs?
« on: May 05, 2006, 07:01:54 PM »
I am going to be interviewed for a 1L summer internship to work with the in house counsel of a Top 10 Construction company in the United States. I talked to the Senior Vice-President and General Counsel of the company, and he mentioned that I would more than likely work in their Denver office hleping them in their mining operations in South America.  Will this benefit me at all in my search for a 2L summer internship with a large firm? Also, I will be attending Cornell University School of Law, if that matters any.

I think I might just write about liking upstate NY and nature.

That is what I did.

In terms of prestige for the California schools:
1)Chapman 2) California Western

Chapman has a good name in Orange County because of the undergrad. I would consider sending in your application as soon as possible but you will probably need a higher LSAT for Chapman. It is trying hard to raise their numbers.

I like Chapman.  But now they are cheapening the school by placing all these radio ads to get people to go to the UG.  What the hell is "Chapman University college" anyways?
I have no idea what Chapman is doing. I think that Chapman College is their extension program similar to the Pepperdine Extension Program. It has a good name in Southern California but it is no where near USC or UCLA. I may put it in the same category as Loyola Marymount.

Anyone can be racist. My girlfriend is African-American and didn't want to present me as her boyfriend to her friends because I was Mexican-American. I called her a racist and she couldn't grasp what she told me. I said that she was no different from any other racist because she made that comment based on my culture, skin color, or etc. She finally understood the harm her comment made. In other words, you don't have to use economics to be racist toward a group.

As for music, I think it is a shame that 50 Cent and other rappers talking about shooting up clubs and fighting get more air time than Common or other singers that talk about social issues.

Law School Applications / Re: Pass/No Pass
« on: September 04, 2006, 08:41:07 PM »
Well, I would think it is better to have a Pass than a C. What is your current GPA? One or two Pass/Fail classes are not going to hurt you in the admissions process especially if you have a 3.7+.

Have you ever thought about visiting at another school? or maybe even doing a semester abroad or summer abroad? This will allow you to get out of Seattle and explore other cities. here is a thread on XOXO about visiting at another school:

I get along with everybody. I have friends that are Arabs, Filipinos, White, and Indian. My girlfriend is also African-American. She had a hard time getting used to an inter-racial relationship.

Law School Applications / Re: Appyling for bargaining?
« on: August 28, 2006, 12:37:12 PM »
I would say go for it RUMike. In the previous cycle, I was able to bargain with schools in the same ranking range. Worst case scenario is that you will have to turn down a school that gave you scholarship money. Cast a wide net and you may even go to a school that gives you no $$$. All you can really do is spin the wheel and let it go. I think you should shot an application over to Cornell.

Law School Applications / Re: Is South Bend really a sh*t hole???
« on: August 08, 2006, 02:40:56 PM »
South Bend is really not that bad. Some parts of it are actually quite charming.

Has anybody told you that you look like that girl from Party of Five? lol. I just watched a VH1 "I love the 90's" the other day.

Also, to the OP, visit the campus and town. You may come to enjoy it.
