Re: Smokey’s Guide to Biglaw Summer Associate

Is it rare to turn a 1L SA into a 2L SA? Do firms typically extend return offers at the end of the summer? I'm trying to figure out ways to maximize my chances heading into this summer.

Re: Class of 2021: we're basically 1.5Ls now

I just accepted a "big law" SA for the summer. In a secondary market so I put quotes around big law just in case some only qualify major markets as big law. Either way, I'm super excited. It's the largest firm in my region and I'm in disbelief I managed to pull it without being diverse.

Letter of Recomendation

Hey all. I'm seeking advice. I'm looking at transferring but I attend a smaller school that is relatively new. A lot of the professors are extremely attached to the school and in the past 5 years, not a single person has transferred out. I am really finding it nerve wracking to ask for a LOR. Specif...

Re: Guide for Transferring to Another Law School

Is it taboo or frowned upon to call the law school you are thinking about applying to and asking, based on your school and your grades if you would be competitive as a transfer applicant? For instance, I call Columbia and ask the admissions office questions about transferring and t...

Re: Guide for Transferring to Another Law School

Did anyone transfer to Columbia / NYU / Cornell here that can speak on how transfer students are treated. Ideally, I would prefer to go to Columbia but second choice would be NYU. Grades are above the 75% of both Columbia and NYU. Just wondering if I would be treated as a reject or something as a tr...

UG + Law Debt would likely equal less than 100K at current law school. I could see myself living comfortably in my current market.

I attend a TT law school that surprisingly has strong pull in the regional market I'm in. I am completely fine with staying inside the regional market I'm in and I believe that I can place well job wise inside the market with the current school.

Grades for 1L Summer Applications

I didn't see anything on the forum about this so I figured I would ask. When applying to 1L summer jobs, do you include an official transcript from the school for 1L grades or do firms like unofficial transcripts? The firm pages do not specify. Thanks!

Just use good judgment here. If it’s just showing you have a tattoo on your arm that is otherwise not a big deal, you probably won’t have to worry about it.

Re: No Journal

Is journal experience valued more than Mock Trial / Moot Court experience?
I'm really wanting to be on one of the mock trial or moot court teams but also don't want to miss out on journal experience if it is that valued by employers.
I'm an incoming 1L.
