'Ivy Briefs' by Martha Kimes?

Has anyone read this book?  My adviser is requiring everyone with a legal internship to read it (note: my adviser's a moron).  It's marketed as 'One L' for a new generation.  Jeremy Blachman gives it high marks, but beyond that I haven't really heard anything good or bad about it.  Just curious what people think.

I liked Ivy Briefs. It was much more accurate and modern portrayal of law school. It also talks about the job search process that is not in One-L

I also liked this book.  Its a very easy/fast read. It gives you a good sense of the ease of getting a job from a Columbia vs. Fordham... also some other interesting insights in the book.  Plus it's so much more recent than One L, which helps give it some validity.

I actually really liked this book, maybe because it is from a female perspective.  It isn't as in-depth about everything as 1L, but still a good read.

I personally thought she was funny.  She is married in law school, so that is kinda different, too.
