My last day of work was a month ago yesterday...but I'm still getting a paycheck (thanks that wonderful unused vacation time). Funemployment is amazing.

My boss asked me "What's your exit strategy?" in a meeting with half the department. I responded with "Run as fast as I can." :mrgreen:
3 days left to go. The amount of work being assigned to me is now pretty minimal, only a couple of creative briefs per week.

Just got this news. Not sad it was anticipated

At this time, however, we have received deposits from more applicants than we have seats available in the first year class. Consequently, we are unable to extend an offer of admission to you this year.

So does this mean some Offers for seats get withdrawn since they are oversold? Or it that just nice WL talk to soften the blow?

What?? The fact that a school can reject a student after already accepting them and accepting a deposit is absurd. Even if they refund the deposit, that will completely change that person's life plan for at least a year. There's no way a school is doing that...I hope it's nice WL talk for the sake of those that have put in deposits

I highly doubt this means offers made will get withdrawn. Rather, they will provide incentives to admitted students to defer, e.g. by offering them a scholarship raise or some such.

ETA: but what it most certainly means is that with respect to this school, you're shit out of luck, storpappa.

I have 6 more working days after today. I applied for a library job working 10 hours per week in the law library... is that going to be killing me or not too bad?

Does your school have a policy prohibiting 1L's from working in its Code of Conduct agreement?

EDIT - separate from the prior ABA 304(f) or as part of a merit award

Today is my last full day at work.
Surprisingly, I'm still getting new tasks to complete. The DGAF is strong today, very strong.

GRATS! Enjoy the going away party and cake. Just remember that those people may slip and fall one day or develop mesothelioma and call you.

They do have a policy, but it allows up to 10 hours working in law library and no more and no where else.

It'll be a going away pizza party. I'm greatly looking forward to representing my former coworkers with their obesity related disability claims.

That's true. It pays around $12 per hour so it would be helping me a lot by giving me $400 extra per month. I just hope it doesn't interfere too much with 1L studying because it isn't a work study position.

I'll be training the new hire that is going to replace for the next week.... I will no longer be able to come to work lazy and only play on the computer because I have to actively do stuff. :roll:
