« on: November 30, 2006, 10:18:26 PM »
I am a 1L and have made the decision to leave law school. It is just not for me. Any advice on whether I should even take exams? We have 1 week of class left, next week. Thanks!!!

General Board / Job related question for evening students
« on: October 27, 2006, 09:12:34 AM »
Are there any evening students, or students who were evening as 1L's, that didn't work their first year but were able to get a halfway decent job the summer after their first year? I'm an evening student hoping to go days next year...but I'm not working and I'm already worried about getting a summer job. Thanks for any help.

General Board / Academic Excellence Classes?
« on: October 16, 2006, 10:00:36 AM »
Does anyone have these at their school? We have one that meets once a week and just basically teaches students how to outline, analogize, develop legal reasoning skills, etc.? I haven't gone to any yet and I'm wondering how people on the board feel about them. Thanks!

General Board / 1L Evening Students - Work or no work?
« on: October 04, 2006, 11:51:27 AM »
This is for the 1L evening students. How many of you work? In my class most students do and I'm starting to feel like a bum for not working. Unfortunately I wasn't offered a seat for days so I took the evening offer. A friend of mine at the same school had the same problem and tranfered into days (my hope). Anyway I'm just really curious how many E students at other schools have jobs.

General Board / Summer Jobs for PT 1L
« on: May 28, 2006, 09:49:39 PM »
I'm starting school this fall as a 1L but I will be part-time (unfortunately) for hopefully only my first year. I'm wondering what the summer job market is like (if it exists) for summers after a PT 1L year. Thanks!!!

General Board / Question for any part-timers...is this crazy?
« on: April 30, 2006, 09:19:45 AM »
Ok so I have a quick question for any PT students on here. I was recently accepted into New England School of Law's part-time program. I am from the greater Hartford/Middletown Connecticut area which is about 2 hours from Boston. Would it be stupid to just stay in CT and take the Amtrak to Boston 3 days a week for classes? Or do you think this will get old after 4 years? How long is the commute for some of you PT's. Any advice would be great. Thanks!!!

Also if there are any NESL students on here do they have a part to full option???

Where should I go next fall? / Vent/Rant...No need to reply
« on: April 28, 2006, 10:16:43 AM »
Ok so I just need to let off a little steam. There's no need to reply...

Anyway, as of today, April 28, 2006 I am still in nowhere. I am well aware that my poor LSAT score has much to do with this but it's still frustrating. I have three WL, one reject and two no-hears. Limbo is friggin' terrible.

What's worse is that I'm serving as an intern for a local attorney who handles the type of law I want to get into (small business), and everytime I'm introduced to another attorney or a client it's like "oh are you a lawyer?" and I say "no", "oh where did you graduate law school", and I say "I haven't been yet", and then it's "oh where are you going" and finally I have to say "I don't know yet." It's becomming quite embarassing.

Even worse is my family will not leave me alone. I'm working for free at the attorney's office and living off savings. But, I'm hoping to get a paying job at a company I did two internships for over the summer. Anyway all I ever hear is "you need a paying job", "have you gotten accepted anywhere yet?", "I told you that you should have taken a professional prep course", "I knew you were going to blow the LSAT, you were doing too much last year", among other things.

So basically I just need to vent and say I'M SICK OF EVERYBODY and sick of not being in anywhere.

Yes I know a lot of others are in a very similar situationa and again my LSAT score basically merits nowhere this year but I still want to vent.

Oh well I'm registered for the June LSAT, looks like it might be 2007 for me.


Best Regards to all, especially those who read this far...
