FT -> PT to be in OCI again?

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Apr 18, 2012 1:54 pm

I entered law school in the PT program and was FT my 2L. I missed out on big law during OCI. Since then I have increased my rank from the top 25% -> top 10%. I got a big jump because of a bad grade really weighted down my GPA during 1L. Would it be worth spending another year in school? I know it's a big risk, but it would be awesome to get another shot at it. I got 1 call back out of 6 screens last OCI.

At my school, you only get one bite at the apple. PT students can choose to do OCI during either 1L or 2L. Check with your school to see if this is even possible. If it is, it very well may be worth it.

op--

i just thought about it last night so i haven't gotten a chacne to ask the career office. However, I do know of a classmate that got another shot at OCI because he enrolled in a LLM. but it would make sense for them to prevent this gaming for ft to pt transfers : (

I bet OCS is open right now. Phone them and find out - no reason to be speculating here.
