I got hoodwinked by AirBnB into living in a death trap part of town for the first three weeks of summer. So if I stop posting in this thread...

What area is the death trap part of town? I use AirBnB a lot so it'd be good to know.

Time to see which one of us is really BORN and BRED for success. When do they tell us who's on partner track?

If they haven't told you, you aren't on it. HTH.

No one 'gets' partner anymore. You have to take it yourself, using wit and tooth and claw to rip it from the weakest rainmaker's jugular. It is the law of the jungle. It is BigLaw.

I'd go 20%. Don't want to come off as cheap.

But don't we want to clearly establish that we are using BIGLAW money?

You're going to Miami, right? Where did you get "hoodwinked" into staying for three weeks? PM if you want.

Overtown, two blocks away from a house where some kids got shot by gang members about a month ago. The listing said "near Wynwood." :/ caveat emptor I guess

It will be really great when two people post about the weird shit someone does in their office, only to find they were talking about each other.

This could also be the subject of an impending romance novel.

Titled "You've got posted on TLS." Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan will reprise their roles once the novel is made into a movie.

the great thing is this could be repeated like 15 times. "You've got posted on CollegeConfidential.com." "You've got posted on StudentDoctor.Net/Forums." "You've got posted on TheGradCafe.com."

Checking in.

Anyone else still yet to receive their schedule/more details about their program? I start in two weeks and all I've heard is my start and end dates and had to fill out a couple surveys.

Same. I've gotten the basic employment forms but no info on exactly when/where to go, what to do, etc. I assume it'll be sent soon.

Is calling in sick a thing? Do you need a note?
