It's review season and I'm starting to realize the folly of my plans to keep Law School secret. I'm supposed to meet with my boss to discuss "how I can take on more responsibility"

I'm open to suggestions from the TLS community

How close are you to moving, and do you have enough savings saved up to leave today?

I'd listen to what he had to say and perhaps respond with. "Boss I agree that I should be taking more responsibility, in that light I humbly give my two weeks notice. I'm going to XYZ law school (you could or could not fib there up to you) in the fall. So how can I help until then?"


BTW, if you're about to get a bad review I'd just resign there.

Is it the type of place where you could tell them now without negative repercussions (i.e., getting let go)? I actually brought it up at my review. I like my boss and coworkers, so I did not want to leave them in a pickle, and thought the "planning for the future" discussion would be a good time to talk about how we needed to start training others on what I do because of my impending departure.

I'm still debating when I'm going to let work know. I'm thinking at least a month before I leave, but more than that and it could backfire on me.

This is my situation, too. Nobody leaves my industry for law, and the nature of my work is very cyclical, so I have a good exit point coming up in 2 months. I'll have to scrape up a few nothing answers for the review. Thanks everyone for the help.

On Topic: I'm a UG senior with a 21-credit semester. Someone help me focus. The sad part is that I was ready to graduate in December with a job in SF, but I stuck around another semester for a second degree. :cry:

Hah! I just saw this. Was out of the country for one week and out of the...life last week (bereavement) so I just now saw this. I return to the office on Monday after falling off Earth for 2 weeks, can you sense my excitement?

I can only imagine the things they've been saying about my prolonged absence. I think with everything that is going on in my IRL, just one peep from those two will send me into the ragey tirade they deserve.

Will update, of course. I have a few family things going on so not sure if I'm quitting at the end of May or have to stay here through June. I'm so ready to GTFO!

Update on my review: "meets expectations"

That's pretty generous for someone who spent the morning listening to The Wall on youtube.

Literally had this conversation with my boss this morning.

Boss: Don't you think you should put in more of an effort?

Me: No

Must be nice to have an office job like that. Hard to do "nothing" when one actually has daily actions or heaven forbid labor to get done.

I actually much preferred my previous job where my productivity was very closely monitored, as was web browsing. It was much less mind numbing.

Here I am surrounded by stacks of junk and my email piling up and my bosses all throwing more junk at me and all I wanna do is plan for my upcoming AS weekend!

My attorneys have gotten to the point where I'll be drowning with work but I'll walk into their office to ask a question only to find them browsing AOL.com (really) or researching timeshares. :x Bye, TLS, back to knee-deep for now.

I also actually LIKED my coworkers there, so that might play into it.

The more time I take off, the less productive I am at work.

I've had to go through Canadian border security a couple times. One time I had to ask my company to route me home so I can drop off a firearm. Not illegal here in the States of course, but a no go there. I didn't tell him I had one so I told him I would need to drop my dog off first because I didn't have papers for her. Lucky me for following Canadian law as I was inspected that trip. So much for high tech snooping though, I had to unlock my laptop for them (biometric). The 6 hour delay sucked though.

Never cross the Canadian border without Hockey sticks in the back seat. They let you right through.

I'm half kidding.
