For a friend: 2.90/TBD LSAT - AA Female

LSN is pretty sparse in this range. She took a cold PT and scored in the mid-160s. Very confident that she can score in the 170s with some work. She is ~7 years out of UG. Trying to give her an idea of what she might be working towards. Seems like: (i) with a 170+, the low end of the T14 comes into ...

Not sure what you're asking. Isn't that the play always regardless of what you think you want to do?
I mean yeah I guess. I guess I'm asking whether there are any special considerations to take into account when you're looking to go into this area?

What's the best location for a locker? As close as possible to the library? I don't really have a sense of where I'll be spending my time.

I don't have any good questions, but being on the legal side of this the changes in global trade has some appeal to me, so I want to know more about the options in that area.

Yeah I’m mostly a finance deal lawyer, but I dabble in some M&A regulatory work (e.g., state licensing hoops you have to jump through when certain kinds of companies get taken over) and what is essentially specialist consulting on deal docs (e.g., just like you send your MRA/credit agreement/whateve...

Re: So you think you want BigLaw?

I once had to jump in and close a deal for someone who got the flu. It was horrible and I'm still mad about it. Who are you mad at? Hopefully not the person with the flu, who obviously had no choice in contracting a serious illness. Admittedly I'm letting the ruthless biglaw chicken flow through me...

What happens when you get sick while working on a big deal as a corporate associate? Do you get to take sick leave and come back and work to death, or are you expected to keep working?
IME, you buy some dayquil and keep working.

You don’t want to enter as a third-year. You’ll have no transferable skills and would effectively be a first year billing out as a third year. Idk why anyone would want you in their deal team. This is just a recipe to get fired very quickly.
This is correct.

How are they It's going to take a long time (like, years and years) for LSL to be the go to site for all the rando midlevel psychopaths who don't really read chatborts but come out of the woodwork during stuff like this and by default go to the site they read sometimes before starting 1L a decade ago
