Re: Grades for Harvard to Yale?

Hello, I'm about to embark at HLS. I'm very excited and happy to be attending HLS, but I am also interested in transferring to Yale. This is mostly because I want to go into academia, but also because I just really think I'd prefer the academic experience at YLS. Roughly what Honors/Pass ratio migh...

Re: CS career megathread / AMA

I took my current job almost a year ago on the promise that once my bar membership became final it would be a dual hat role (director of security stuff and in-house counsel). On the bright side, they “promoted” me as promised, but within a month of the promotion the CEO changed his mind. It seems t...

Re: CS career megathread / AMA

thx tbh i expect it to be rough in the beginning, based on some of the stories i've heard. last time didn't have good fb recruiter experience, different than this time. i heard they are revamping their perf appraisal system from every 6 months to once per year. that could make it more bearable. in ...

A different recruiter from a previous company contacted. Planning to take the offer this time.

**This thread seems much quieter than in the past. Or is the site in general less active?

Re: CS career megathread / AMA

You mean once offices open up? I'm not sure why SWEs would switch careers at a higher rate now when they can be fully remote (other industries have less flexibility for WFH) and tech stocks are at ATHs (other industries suck for equity based comp). how is the preference for wfh/remote versus onsite...

Re: CS career megathread / AMA

It would be interesting to know what poster rustyshackelfordd decided to do. i think he was considering a switch to law or had already switched. it looks like once companies begin to open up after shutdown, there would be lots more career switches. anyone here waiting for things to open up?

Re: duke, uva, cornell, or retake

Seems like you underperformed your stats a little. I had a slightly lower LSAT and much lower GPA and I'll be graduating from a mid-T14 with only a slightly higher debt load than you're looking at at UVA/Duke/Cornell. But maybe that LSAT flex thing really has things all messed up. I definitely don'...

Re: Should I buy a LSAT Strategy Guide?

Your practice test scores are excellent. Did you take the practice tests timed or untimed? They were timed. I ran out of time on logic games on my first test with 3 questions to go but otherwise my timing was good. These were PrepTests 41-43, though, so maybe I need to take some more recent PrepTes...

You are all far too kind 😭

I've already drafted my LOCI as a coping mechanism. If anyone (especially someone familiar with NYU) would be willing to take a look and make sure it passes the sniff test, would very much appreciate it.

You can pm me for a look.
