It does seem like a tough year in general whereas last year I think top 20% was relatively safe and this year not so much the case.

From what I'm hearing legal hiring is taking a dive a bit this year. Median kids at Penn are getting just 1 CB and shit. Great. Just fucking great.

And to the MAYBE person -- you know what you were getting at with your comment. You may not sense it now, but in the professional world Fordham Law alum look out for each other unlike any other group of law school alums. From my interviewing experience, to working at a firm, Fordham people are different.

It may seem like you're each others competition now, but that couldn't be farther from the truth. You're your own competition. Your grades, your resume, and your personality are yours to succeed or fail by. Have each others' backs through this. You never know when a Fordham law alum will help you out one day...spread the love.


You are blowing my sentence way out of proportion. Just MAYBE I was suggesting a reasonable... er, reason, for why the anon wasn't getting any callbacks.

OMM went really well, Hahn and Chadbourne did kinda suck (the Chadbourne guy seemed like a jerk though, he just gave me a blank stare every time I answered one of his questions). But I've KILLED other interviews where it was still silence and other people got CBs. I have friends who are definitely very good interviews (extremely personable, etc) and they've had similar results, same grades.

This year just isn't shaping up too well.


Yeah, I feel you. Especially the Chadbourne interview. I got dinged from that, too and mine went REALLY well.

Anyone know how to access our new emails?

When I click gmail icon from my.fordham.edu, it loads up fordham.edu email, not law.fordham.edu.

Doesnt look like the old emails migrated nor the test emails I sent to law.fordham email came thru.

Any ideas?

Nevermind.

Switch to Gmail has been delayed due to technical difficulties per the following IT's email.

Was scared for a bit tho. haha.

Dear Returning Students,

Due to technical difficulties switching to Google Gmail, we have decided to back-out of the August 22nd migration plan.

Please continue to utilize GroupWise Webaccess (http://mail.lawnet.fordham.edu) to interact with your GroupWise account. All GroupWise services (client, web, blackberry, mobile sync, POP3/IMAP) are operational and have been validated by IT. All queued messages have been successfully delivered to inboxes.

IT will reassess in the morning and work to reschedule the switch to Google Gmail. The community will be notified accordingly. We appreciate your understanding and patience.If you have questions regarding this message, please contact the Law Helpdesk at lawhelpdesk@law.fordham.edu or (212) 636-6916.

I think it was absolutely STUPID of them to try to switch during OCI season.

Pure radio silence since the start of EIW. I can read between the lines, I'm gonna go outside and enjoy my life for a few days instead of getting an arrhythmia every time my phone rings 8)
