Re: Dropping Out and Reapplying

Either way, it just seems really weird to me that somebody can have such an extreme loathing for their school that it's affecting them so badly emotionally and psychologically. I just literally can't think of anything that would be so absolutely horrible about a school that would lead to this. Anyw...

My favorite firm is a regional that won't even meet to decide who gets callbacks until at least next week. My screener was the first week of July.

When you had a callback with your favorite firm weeks ago and have heard silence since.

I've done like 40, a few bites/in-process on some jobs, but there are still more places I want to apply. Never ends.

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

found a pretty bad typo in my cover letter that went out to a whole slew of places.. How bad are we talking? There was a guy at my school that sent out cover letters with literally “[generic firm]” instead of the firm name for one of his apps and ended up getting the job. You might be okay! Haha om...

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

Before I started a bunch of 2/3Ls told me the social dynamic of law school is basically highschool 2.0. They weren't joking. I was wondering if it was only my school or not... what's crazy is that I don't remember undergrad being like this, so I don't understand why law school is. found a pretty ba...

Also this wait for grades fucking sucks. +1 to this. Worse than waiting for the LSAT, since there's no retaking :cry: It's gonna be alright. Nearly all of us are going to good schools and will find real lawyer jobs in all but the worst cases. A lot of y'all are at *great* schools and will more like...

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

Guys I've only applied for like 15 apps so far and I got one screener call. Some people in my class have applied to like 40+. Since people are already getting callbacks, I'm a little nervous. I wonder if it's okay as long as we get the SA apps in before January? or is it too late already? I have no ...

Damn I really played myself; went hard for a good grade on the closed memo but our prof told us afterwards that the 2nd determines our grade no matter what the first got Yikes. Our prof was upfront about how much the components of the closed memo, the final closed memo, and the open memo would make...

Also, there are no open slots for advising at OCS this semester? Apparently they assume I know something about legal hiring or firms :roll: Where do you go? But also, forget OCS, and find some 2Ls and 3Ls that will give you info on where/how they found their jobs and can help you edit your resume. ...

Our first memo is closed, ungraded and due at the end of the first quarter. Which I really like bc idk what tf I'm doing. Definitely need the feedback. Then next quarter we have an open memo, graded, and a brief in the third quarter, graded.
