Is it because they have a crap load of just awful menial work that they don't want to touch with a ten foot pole? Is it really for long term employment, but they don't want to get yelled at when the summer is over and they no hire almost everyone?

It's just cheap labor. A lot of those firms/companies aren't paying much.

I figured the top 20 GPAs would bid all of the Phase II stuff, just for laughs.

In case you missed it, SMU students are eligible for 10% off monthly service from Sprint and AT&T. AT&T peeps can register online, Sprint losers have to go to the store.

42k in tuition saves me 90 bucks on cell phone service!

Best investment I ever made. I'll have crespi figure out what rate of return that is.

Attention career services - if you force me to attend an interview I do not want to go to, I will be subtly horrible to interview.

Supposedly we register next week. A schedule would nice.

Crespi's class sounds like more fun than being repeatedly stabbed in the face by coke-up monkey while being slowly stuck with hot pins.

Yea. Disappointed not only with the classes offerred but the piecemeal way they seemed to have be schedule. The two bankruptcy classes on friday overlap by ten minutes. How do you let those overlap like that?

Despite SMU's terrible bar passage rates, they still only offer certain bar courses only in the evenings. Where's the sense in that.

Agreed. I was really surprised especially based on previous spring schedules.

Speaking of bar passages, there is an interesting statistic running around about bar passage pt v. ft and I would love it if someone would destroy/substantiate it.

I'm really disappointed by the fact that you either have to take something in the morning or at night. Very little in-between.

And holy crap, come on. Could they have made it any more inconvenient to take Evidence in the day time? If you want to, it basically forecloses half the other classes.

If I wanted to take night classes, I would have done PT.

I'm taking 2 night classes this semester. Both profs assign ~100 pages of reading per class, even though they are both 2-hour classes. The shit is interesting, but I feel like I'm spending a disproportionate amount of time on these classes.

I'm also confused about the overlap of the two bankruptcy classes by 10 effing minutes. Like, who does that?

The administration has always been terrible when it comes to schedules. I always found myself clicking like a mad man when classes opened at noon. The great classes always fill up or conflict with each other.

But then again, you're only paying 40k in tuition right? Also, every new lawyer needs to take animal law.

Is Advanced Bankruptcy the standard, entry-level bankruptcy class?

No. Creditor's Rights is the entry-level class.

Creditor's rights is an overview of the Bankruptcy Code as a whole and some state law stuff. We covered mostly ch. 7 and 13 bankruptcy, but we are covering a little bit of ch. 11 here at the end. Advanced bankruptcy seems to be just ch. 11. Other than CR giving you an understanding of bankruptcy as a whole, I don't see why you couldn't take advanced bankruptcy without having taken CR.
