Anyone else thinking about dropping their clinics this year?


Definitely no. It's the only thing I'm looking forward to about going back.

Credited.

Law school sucks.

3L is an expensive vacation, and I don't spend my vacations in lecture halls.


But will spend it in the labor room and nursery.

Got my first offer today! (No idea if this is the right place to put it). V50 firm, satellite/branch office. Now to see how the second half plays out.

Let's not post offer/ no offer shit on this thread. It doesn't make anyone less anxious and it doesn't give anyone useful information. At best it just clutters the thread up. Worst, it's bragging and makes people more worried.

People who get no-offered know they are going to get no-offered, right? It's not a complete shock the last week?

I try to ease my anxiety by asking associates for stories about the one person in the office who was no offered last year. So far I have not thrown up from drinking at an event, insulted a partner's house, or hit on the recruiting coordinator. Hoping that's enough

If I get no offered I might go Incredible Hulk on the firm, because I have received nothing but praise and reassurance all summer.

So yeah I hope so as well.

I may or may not have done the latter of those things. It is unclear.

Wondering if my early-summer slip up will lead to a no-offer. We'll find out within the next few days, and I'll start a pity thread if I get no-offered. Maybe I'll become the next Corsair (did he ever have an SA?).

Particularly when the presumption is offer and the anon doesn't know for sure everyone got one.

Do we need an offer announcement thread?

Thank you for that correction. I don't want to mislead people or be too big for my britches. I will be sure to stick with the V50 proles from here on out.
