Yes? ... No? .... The majority do?

One of my bros knows someone who got no-offered due to having mediocre credit. I suggest you pull your credit report.

Why does anyone take tax who isn't going to practice tax.

people who got no-offered have an incentive to misrepresent why, so a lot of the reasons i hear, i assume are bullshit.

I actually found it useful and interesting. Hell, I'm planning to take a lot of stuff related to areas that I'll never actually go into as a career.

Tomorrow is first exam. Employment law. What an ironic way to begin my march toward unemployment.

Trying to study for this tax final is making me want to simultaneously pull out my hair and punch a hole in the wall. Shoot me in the face for buying into my school's "everyone should take tax!" spiel.

Did your prof do problem sets? If so, do those and if it makes you more comfortable, put the samples in your outline. Otherwise, I dunno, my class was pure problem sets applying each section of the Code and the final was mirror image.
