Law firms and other research sites were on board with collaborating. We had a great platform, but it was only usable by HLS c/o 2017. (They all used it extensively.). This year I have the opportunity to open it up a bit more.

What do you want to know about law firms?


Payscales, bonuses, average stay time of associates, partnership odds (in the form of a %), exit options, offer rates, strongest practice groups


Look at number of associates and see how much more leveraged NYC firms are than southern ones. The southern ratio is 1:1 and the NYC is more like 10:1

profits per partner is over 5 million at the top NYC firms, they must have so many clients that they cant hire enough associates

PPP in the south is 500k on avg; your chances of making partner at a big southern firm are lik 50%

It is indeed! I have a 5-day window between hitting submit for write-on and starting up my internship. I finally saw "Civil War" and I might see "Apocalypse" tomorrow. I also rediscovered "reading for fun." Too bad the dream has to die soon...

I'm sorry to hear that! Does your summer job have predictable hours so you know when you can do write-on? If it makes you feel better, I am also spending significant portions of my 5-day break in ~90 degree heat spraying anti-mosquito juice and weedkiller in the backyard.

I think the worst part was the page limit - aside from the 300+ pages of reading. Too many topics were implicated to feel like I even did a halfway-decent job covering the law.

Yeah, it should be predictable but I can't imagine that my brain will be at all workable from 6-11pm. I'm not a "think all day" person. Thinking about skipping it because I don't think I will do that well. Most people from my school are in a similar situation, but most of those people are better at working hard than me.

I just picked something super narrow and didn't read everything.

Also I finished it like 3 minutes before the deadline so there's that.

Grades are in. Now I can relax for the rest of the summer...

...or for about a week until I can't justify not following the Career Office's advice to start getting ready for OCI.

Fuck me. This will never end. :cry:

What class did you get a grade for?! I just looked and have nothing listed.

And you will be on Main. I will look up towards the hilltop and say hi from the lowly journal I ranked 5th!
