Hi all. I am entering school this fall and have a few questions that hopefully some of you already enrolled can help me with. I will likely be entering a T1 school on a part-time basis. I am in the midst of finishing my PhD in molecular biology and am going to try to get a job in a firm near my school as technical specialist, or something of the like. My questions are thus: 1) Is it very difficult (or even possible) to get a position on the Law Review as a part-timer? 2) How are part-timers assessed relative to the others in their class- compared just to other PTers? the PTers and full-timers? 3) Assuming I am unable to land a job in the first year, should I take Summer classes to catch up and then enroll as a full time 2L? and 4) This is a big one for me- also assuming I don't land a job, will I be able to take out loans in excess of tuition/living costs to cover other things (such as my car payment, credit cards, etc.)?
Any help will be much appreciated.
Keep fighting the good fight...
