Re: Careers in legal aid

Let the CA schools know about your scholarship. See if they can match or get close.

Re: Careers in legal aid

Have you applied to or heard back from local LA schools like Loyola, Pepperdine, Southwestern, etc.? I imagine you might get good scholarships from these schools too.

It's not gonna get you legal aid in California, but it will get you legal aid in Pburg or Philly.
For Potat, because his hometown is LA, and he has worked for a large nonprofit in LA before, I think his chances are OK. Not good, but he can at least probably get some interviews.

Re: Careers in legal aid

Does this scholarship include living costs?

How much debt would you be taking on?

Re: LRAP/IBR/PSLF. How does it work? Let's find out!

Does anyone know who is gonna replace Fedloan yet? IIRC, Fedloan is gonna stop servicing student loans. Edit because I found this quote: “FSA is in the process of transferring those loans to remaining servicers,” wrote the Department. Some FedLoan accounts are already being transferred to MOHELA, an...

Re: LRAP/IBR/PSLF. How does it work? Let's find out!

The details of this aren't official yet, but if these things go through, it'll be huge at remedying some of the biggest structural problems with the program due to the really bad communication of the policies in the early years of it. These changes mean potentially hundreds of thousands of people w...

Re: How many Ws are *too* many?

Be sure to confirm that the Ws are “nonpunitive.” You may have already seen this, but here it is just in case:

Re: Please give me feedback on my personal statement

Really good. Great theme and substance. Just review it or have a good editor-friend review it for grammar, usage, etc. You want to just tighten up those things so they won’t distract the readers. A few quick things I saw (not a thorough grammar review): The first part of a sentence is a dangling mod...

Re: Is it worth applying to clerkships that have been open on OSCAR for months?

Yes. Isn’t it really quick and easy to apply to clerkships on OSCAR, because you have all your application materials already? I still sometimes like to customize cover letters a little bit (e.g., geographic ties) and tailor resumes/writing samples based on the judge's preferences. And I neuroticall...

Re: ACCEPT V20 OFFER OR 3L HIRING??

Is it too late to apply for clerkships? Some judges have weird hiring schedules.

I don’t know if you are lit or corp, but doing a clerkship can allow you to look at a new firm.

Sounds like a sweet job. If you don’t wanna ever be a lawyer again, take the job.
