Current Law Students / Re: breakup before/after bar exam?...
« on: May 21, 2011, 06:58:47 AM »
I have that gut feeling too... but I do agree this might be an "exceptional" case too.  Sigh.  Really, no other thoughts out there?   :-\

Current Law Students / breakup before/after bar exam?...
« on: May 20, 2011, 07:53:39 AM »
my boyfriend and i just graduated this week from law school.  i've realized that i want to break up with him for the past few weeks now, but because of not wanting to jeopardize his concentration on finals, and the joy of graduation on the horizon, i haven't had the guts to do so.  now that graduation is over though, we have the bar exam ahead... in 2 months.  things are fine between us, so it wouldn't be like we were staying together in a tumultuous relationship if i decided not to end it before then.  but on the other hand, i think it's unfair to me to remain unhappy and to him to not have a genuine relationship for the next 2 months... although again, i don't want to jeopardize his focus on the bar exam (and of course mine, if it turns out to be a bad breakup).  i fear that if i do break up with him before then, HE might even be like, "couldn't you have at least waited till after???" 

Extremely tormented.  Not sure what to do.  Advice?  What would YOU do???

General Off-Topic Board / the ads on LSD have really gone downhill
« on: September 09, 2009, 02:45:47 PM »
post your traumatizing LSD ads here.  i just saw one of lindsay lohan's chest covered with hair and the premise of the game was to "shave off lilo's hair!!" 

by mid-sized i mean a V100 firm that is on the relatively "smaller" scale (vs. V10 firms).  Clerkship in a federal district court in a major city. 

Current Law Students / Re: NOT going to class

where are you at (T-Bracket wise?)? i can't imagine a school having 1L courses so "disorganized" and off-putting that you consider not even attending within your very first month of law school.

can anyone recommend a better forum to post this in?  i guess this question's more tailored for practicing lawyers rather than current law students.

Current Law Students / Re: How Many Call-Backs Have You Received?

4/25+ interviews.  haven't heard from all but am not too optimistic about the remaining.

i thought i addressed the ambiguity the day i found out my LSAT score.  anyway, my avatar should clarify any remaining confusion. 

let's say you end up graduating from an HYSCC with latin honors, but summered and spent your first post-grad year or two working at a mid-sized law firm, then clerk for a year or two... is it somewhat easier to get a V10 than if you tried getting one of those as a mediocre-GPA'ed 1L?  (clearly i am talking about a hypothetical "friend" of mine.)
