Re: EJW Conference

I'm an idiot - I signed up to interview candidates for our summer program and only two weeks ago realized it's the same day (Oct 18) as the first day of my vacation in Peru, lol. Thankfully my colleague can interview them but bummed to miss this year's conference!

Re: Biglaw 2L SA to PI

How hard would it be to jump from a Biglaw 2L SA to PI? I'm about to start my SA in a month but pretty much regret going the biglaw route, as it just doesn't jive well with me on a fulfillment front. My T14 has fellowships, but I worry that I won't be competitive because my PI resume is just BAD w/...

i don't think you should rely on websites that rate law schools...i think they are usually sponsored.....it is better to talk with students who graduated.
