However, in one of the rare instances in which I would disagree with jawsthegreat, I will have to say that Feb Club is...a tad overrated. Fun? Yes. Epic? Meh...we'll have to see the rest of the month first.
Also, I'm going to state again for the record how awesome the Public Service Center folks are here. I'm more than just a little sure that I've already posted something to this effect before and it's odd that I'm talking like this when, you know, I'm still looking for an internship. But I'll post it again, because it's true and I happen to be riding one of my public service highs right now. Some of you 2014er's better use these folks to the utmost...just, don't forget about your scheduled interviews...
Care to elaborate a bit on why they're so awesome? Interested as a potential PIer.
I knew from my visit here that these folks were really invested in the people who came to them who were interested in public interest, but the amount of help they're willing to give you and the passion that these folks I've talked to have for the work is really something. I mean, you can't expect them to hand you jobs or anything like that, but if you come in there with an idea of what you want to do, they'll help you come up with a real plan for how to get there. They were also pretty goshdarned proactive in my case - contact regarding where I should apply and certain opportunities they knew I would be interested in didn't end after I left their office. I just genuinely felt that these folks were going above and beyond to find me the job that I wanted.
Granted, I can't compare this to other law schools - maybe this is standard practice. Maybe I'm easily satisfied (wouldn't be the first time this is the case). But in my case, there's really nothing more I could have asked from them. To some degree though, this can't just be my rose-colored view of people at work; there's got to be a reason why it's been so hard for me to find a 2L or 3L who was dissatisfied with their experience with the PSC. Some are out there, certainly, and I've even met a couple, but the consensus clearly cuts the other way.
