I pray that the exam gods take mercy on your souls if you two young scholars seriously dont realize that you can't PM an anonymous user. On top of that you are BOTH anonymous users lol.

ahaha i originally said "cant pm and i dont want to spam employment forum with uc davis advice" but then it "let" me send the PM. I assumed rather than being broken and allowing anon pms it might allow anons to PM other anons albeit with the sender divulging their s/n. As it lets you PM, this makes sense :) (and this is what it looked like to me)

It gets worse, he basically gives out the test (I am not joking, there was only 1-2 issues that changed on last years test from the handout) with a few variables moved around during the last week of class. So everyone will know enough to finish the test with just an outline, so the usual apathetic people will still do decently well. To get that A you gotta get lucky, creative, or incorporate a lot of comic book references.

Is anybody still following this thread? It's funny how law schools accept students who did well on the LSAT and can supposedly spot flaws in logic yet they expect us to be tricked by misleading statistics. ugh.

According to LST, that's 98% for 9 months after graduation, not at graduation. Huge difference there, because with 9 months, you can say you were employed just by doing doc review.


Davis claimed 98% employed AT GRADUATION in last year's USNWR. It will be interesting to see what they report when the new rankings come out next week. I am calling shenanigans if it is anything north of 90%.

99% employed where?
Do any current students have a list of who does OCIs or where students have found employment in the last few years?

Class of 2011 at Davis is pretty screwed employment wise. Hope it is better for later classes. Top 10% is okay it seems, after that, it's pretty much a mess. Take what you can get and don't be picky is my advice.

PS - Amar is another real random grader, lots of random B-/C+'s to top students, and A's to people that otherwise do quite poorly. Aoki is a really easy grader past 1L, take everything with him you can.

Regarding Amar - Can you provide any suggestions on what you perceived to work better/not work so well on his exam, grading, et?

I got an A in his 1L conlaw class. Have fun with the exam. Know your shit, but write well and throw in a few jokes. He's the sort of guy who probably gets bored to tears reading a huge pile of shitty, turgid 1L exams and appreciates someone who puts tiny bit of effort into their prose. He is one of the hardest graders at the school though, and is probably best avoided post-1L. I pressed my luck by taking him for conlaw 2 and wound up with a B+ for my trouble.

Also, avoiding Aoki is probably the worst GPA advice you could possibly give a UCD Law student. He's a really cool professor, his local gov class is interesting as law school classes go, and it's one of the easiest As to be had at King Hall. Take everything you can with him.

What're the chances of a DA office job out of King Hall starting this fall? Got in with a pretty substantial need package + a small merit award (totaling $30.5k per year, no stip on merit aid) and am trying to decide b/n this school and a couple others.

I'm uninterested in Big Law.
