Never heard of PI gigs while I was in MBA School. They may exist but uncommon. [/color]


There are most definately MBA jobs with non profits or with govt. I know several people who took this path.

It's less common than PI out of law school due to self-selection and b/c it is harder for a 30 yr old MBA to take that kind of salary than it is for a 25 yr old law grad.

FYI most LLMs are 24-30 credits so you can do them 1 year.

Yeah, well there is a lot of immolation in these firms.

Haha, its true. Obs you can put on your resume that you speak a forgein langue "dyelxia" with all the post of mine you have read. Also "immolation" still loks right to me :cry:

I JUST got a callback from OCI. Some firms really are taking their sweet time.

Wish me anonymous luck, this is my last shot at a summer firm job.

Emulation maybe? I don't recall the original post but I think that's what it was.

And I think maybe I can put it on my resume as "Assisted dyslexic attorney in developing legal arguments for use in a large national campaign against indigents."

On a sidenote, I'm in a short course this week on drug law and policy and I don't even mind being in class until 9pm... fascinating stuff on prohibition versus the regulation-and-control scheme we might see in the next decade or so. Definitely did not previously think about public choice theory applying to prisons (wanting to keep pot illegal primarily so that they won't run out of prisoners and have to close.)

haha, no but the professor served popcorn and sodas the other night and is ordering pizza for tomorrow's class since we have to come in on Saturday. I could easily see this class having a different vibe post-decriminalization of marijuana, say near the end of Obama's second administration. Until then, this is still a law school and students presumably are obeying the law. And actually class this afternoon conflicts with the usual free beer on Fridays, which thankfully didn't get cut out of the budget this year. Oddly enough taking drug law reduces drug (alcohol) use.

Still hung up on the prisons maintaining prohibition in order to keep themselves full/keep getting funded. We haven't dug too deeply into that but if we have the option I want to make that the focus of my take-home exam. This afternoon we're examining Robert MacCoun and Peter Reuter's update on evaluating alternative cannabis regimes.

+ 1 on this.

There are plenty of people in your class that really want to do public interest work. Their resumes rarely look anything like that of a 2L who got passed over at OCI because the economy sucks. Public interest/government interviews are generally brutal compared to Big Law BS sessions. They're trying to get rid of people they don't want, not recruit, and that's especially true now. Not to mention that state & local government hiring is going to be shitty for at least the next couple years. Those budget problems won't fix themselves anytime soon.

I know of two people at my t-14 school who just got offers today from Skadden(NY). From no offers to two offers, offers are still trickling in from OCI so don't give up hope yet.

Based on my personal experience with approximately 150 MBA classmates from a top 20 MBA program, I do not know one person who took a nonprofit position. 0 for 150 = .000 batting avg or "uncommon". I am sure you would agree 0 for 150 can be interpreted as "uncommon". Hopefully this helps you better understand what I was talking about and why I was unfamiliar with them.

top20 MBA = TTT, so your evidence is irrelevant.

I must have missed the day in Evidence class when we talked about the TTT Evidence Exclusion Rule. Or maybe its that whole thinking like a lawyer thing I never picked up, all you need to do to counter ones argument is Anonymously drop the TTT bomb. Sweet this whole lawyer thing seems easier than I thought.
