0L Summer

Postby Lvaughn714 » Wed Mar 07, 2012 5:28 pm

Anyone doing anything interesting with your last summer of freedom? I'm currently debating quitting my FT job a month early to relax in July...also reading lots of non law related books and hopefully spending time outside before being relegated to the crappy Midwest winters again.

I'm pretty curious about what others are planning to do. I'm planning to stick it out until June at my job and then take off for Europe/South America/SW Amurrica's National Parks/somewhere I can have adventures. I've heard that 1L year is godawful so I want to make sure I'm in good shape mentally to beast it.

I didn't know that this actually happened!! But I haven't told anyone at work either... quitting in May to take the summer off and move to Europe. Last time to truly enjoy myself :)

I work for a data entry company and while it wasn't *as* dramatic as I made it seem above....it's still pretty crappy. Basically he demanded I give him a firm end date once he found out (a few weeks back) which I gave him (in late May, giving me a summer in Europe or whatever along with time to tie up any loose ends and train my replacement) which he abruptly changed to a week from now right after he heard (implying that I either leave then or he fires me that day). I'm probably going to find myself an internship on the Hill and just take it easy since I live in DC.

Same, though work knows. I'm either doing an Eastern Europe trip or a US roadtrip - depending on finances.

I secretly hate you...so do you get paid through the summer even though you aren't coming back the next year? Or do you just wait and quit later?

Working till the day I have to pack and move...like somewhere around August 15th - 20th. Need to cover expenses of moving to Cal. from NY. I told my manager last summer that I would be leaving for law school. She was fine with that.

I'm quitting my current job a few weeks after I graduate. My lease is up in June, then I am moving back home with the parents.

I plan on golfing a ton to stay out of their way.

How easy does one do this?
What is the cut off LSAT score to become an instructor?

File for unemployment.


You need to distinguish between being fired and getting laid off. By "Funemployment" I assume you mean you got laid off, and are allowed to file for unemployment benefits.

Conversely, being fired means you don't get unemployment benefits.
