Re: how much should i be billing per day over the summer?

I wouldn't worry about it. As long as you're getting assignments, doing them well, and attending all the required events, you're fine. It's hard to bill a lot as a summer some days because of the events/trainings/other things they have you do. If there's a non-billable code for other activities, you...

Re: Switching Summer Job

Normally I'd advise against burning any bridges but it seems like they're not going to look out for you and it's a toxic work environment. If they ask why, you can be polite but candid about the workplace environment giving you concern.

Yeah that's just not true dude. But there's not much point to posting it because the biglaw firm salaries are well known and publicly documented already, easily found online.
It would be nice to get more tips on that sheet from black box firms like Jones Day.

Re: Those with an LLM or Wanting an LLM

I would think the most popular LLM programs would be those designed for international students with prior legal education in their home countries coming to the US who want to sit for the bar exam without getting a JD. (NY and Washington State allow this.) After that, tax seems to be the second most ...

Re: UIllinois or UConn?

Cost is $8,500 per year to UConn and $13,000 to Illinois. Housing at Illinois would likely add another $8,000 a year to the estimated cost. However, I would likely be <$80,000 in debt from either school. Also, I would probably make more $ in Chicago than in CT. What do you think? Are these already ...

Re: Older applicant....PhD in another field

I'm not worried about you getting into law school. Your GPAs are solid and I'm assuming, if you apply yourself and do ample test prep, you can get a good LSAT score north of 165 to get you to a T14, or maybe a T20 school with more scholarships. Your rationale right now reads more like defenses about...

Hey guys, do you happen to know which T14 has the lowest COL?
No but you could try looking at Law School Transparency, or just looking up the living cost formulas on each school's financial aid page. Shouldn't take you more than 30 minutes.

How do schools look at re-applicants typically? Will my 1L fall semester GPA matter? Yes, it will matter. If you are doing very poorly and have a low GPA (putting aside class ranking), they will make the inference that you might not be able to handle the workload or that law school isn't a good fit...

I don’t think this is true for niche PI. If you are looking for something specific in PI, a school or professor’s connections into that field will be incredibly valuable.

What will be your actual COA at these schools, including tuition + living expenses + any other expenses you have for 3 years?

Are there no other options on the table?
