Job Search / Question on job offers
« on: September 28, 2009, 01:28:57 PM »
so, basically I'm just looking for confirmation on something I'm already fairly sure of here, but I thought I'd ask. You have a callback with a firm and they tell you at the callback that they'll probably get back to you in mid-September. It is now almost October. Is it safe to assume you will not be receiving an offer? I'm fairly confident that is the case, but I thought I would check so that I can have my hopes officially dashed.

Job Search / Questions at callback

Could someone give me some examples of questions that would be good to ask at a callback interview and/or help point me in the direction of thinking of some? Thanks.

Job Search / Question on call back interviews
« on: August 13, 2009, 11:04:52 AM »
Mostly just looking for some general information about what goes on in call back interviews. Also, how many people are usually "called back"? I'm kind of curious what kind of questions I'm going to be asked, whether I should still wear a suit, stuff like that.

Need some multiple choice crim law exams. Did some googling and found some stuff, but was wondering if anyone knew of some good online sources of old tests, as I have gotten tired of parsing through page after page on google. Thanks in advance.

Law School Admissions / Weirdest thing I have heard this cycle
« on: April 25, 2008, 08:42:40 AM »
So, I've generally heard that if you get in to a school off of their waitlist you shouldn't expect really anything in the way of scholarships. I recently got into my #1 choice off the waitlist and as such was planning on paying full price (even though I'm in state). Lo and behold, 3 weeks later I get an email informing me that I'm being given a full tuition scholarship. Really, really weird.

Law School Admissions / What's the deal with withdrawing?
« on: April 02, 2008, 12:26:55 PM »
Can I just send an email? If I do, should I send it to the person who signed my acceptance letter or just the generally law admissions email address. Also, should there be much to this or should I just say that I'm withdrawing my application?

Law School Admissions / A question I haven't seen asked on here
« on: April 01, 2008, 11:23:54 PM »
Ok, so I got accepted to my #1 choice off of the waitlist, my question is do you think it would be ok to contact them and ask them for a SMALL scholarship. Nothing big, especially since its an in-state school with low tuition anyways, I'm thinking only something like 2k a year. Its not like they're going to recsend (spelling?) my

Law School Admissions / Submitting an additional letter/LOCI
« on: March 23, 2008, 04:18:17 PM »
Recently, I was WL'ed after being deferred at my #1 choice. I think this is because of an OWI 3 years ago, as my LSAT is 3 points above the 75% and my GPA is above the 25% (big upward trend). When I was deferred, I did send an LOCI. Here is what I planned on doing.

1) Call the state bar --> Ask how an OWI affects admission to the bar.
2) Compose a letter stating --> Response of the bar, continued interest and more specifics on why #1 (I wasn't that specific originally).

It may be redundant to state continued interest however, as I have to fill out a sheet to stay on the waitlist and because I have already sent one when deferred. I would also like to deliver the letter in person and talk to the Dean if possible, however, I'm not sure if they like just being "dropped in" on. Anyways, overall thoughts?
