anyone invited to the christmas party? I heard one or two of my friends were, I think howrey's, but wasnt sure if this was unusual or not...
I was invited but also could not attend due to finals. Any benefit to going?
I received a book and a bag w/ the firm's logo. I was also invited to the firm ofice x-mas party but I could not attend due to finals.
I think it would have been awkward being at the x-mas party. The majority of the people I met were older partners. I wouldn't want to be socializing with them all night at a x-mas party. Based on my experiences at office x-mas party, it's not the best place to meet your co-workers, since it's generally one of the few times for them to let loose and get trashed.
I just think that going to firm parties before you have starting working can be a little dangerous, first thing is you really do not know anyone yet and as a result meeting them in a social enviroment with liquour involved might not be the best thing, I think it is a preasure that you should just avoid, once you get there enjoy the social evenings and events.
