If you're at a V10 why the hell are you dicking around on a message board for 0L's?

Do your duties include anything beyond doc review?

Thoughts on 2009 OCI?

offers will be down unless the economy recovers, not really much else to say.

Are you really such a pathetic loser that you spend your day answering questions on LSD when not working?  Get a life.......

Do you have any control over your schedule?  I've heard from people that it depends on what partner you are working for (whether (s)he likes to come in earlier in the day or later), but I was wondering whether you thought that was generally true?

also depends on the assignment. Some have long deadlines, that gives you a lot of control. Some have short deadlines and that reduces control. It really varies.
