(c) During dinner: order a mid-priced entree - but don't order a pasta.

......why not?

cause it's messy and awkward to eat. if it has red sauce, it'll probably splatter on your nice white shirt.

What about ravioli?
What if I'm wearing a blue shirt?

Dude, if you want some empty carbs so bad, just order the damn pasta.

I'm just practicing my getting to maybe skills.

I wish peeps would learn NOT to do this on forums. That's what LS is for.

I don't hope you don't get hit by a bus later today.

Would you suggest sending the materials on plain white or cotton resume/business paper? I used the pricey stuff for 1L summer mailings but was wondering if firms actually prefer regular paper...

I think thin-ish white cotton paper is probably the credited answer.  Obviously send it in a full-length envelope.

Do you guys have any advice regarding researching lit boutiques that pay, say, 100k+? Seems like most of these places aren't listed on NALP and the other usual suspects that list law firms.

It's tough.  I used martindale and picked out any firm with 6-30 attorneys in lit.  Most paid $70k - $145k.

Eating pasta is relatively awkward and messy.  Order at your own peril.

I ordered a very very cheesy pizza (yum!) during a callback interview.  Needless to say, they dinged me.

Full length?! Regular business envelopes are a no go?! :(
