Adjuncting is not for those who value job security, benefits, or decent pay. I mean it can be OK for a bit but it's definitely not something you want to do for an extended period of time. Plus I realized I didn't want to be a teacher for the rest of my life and at that point the long-term rationale for doing it disappears, and then you might as well take a more steady office job to pay the bills while you try to make preparations for the future

Are you a biglaw hopeful

Fashion knows no time, Movie. (P.S. Yes to the Joan Didion avatar!)

There's also the Fashion thread. It's pretty great.


I need to involve myself with that! I dress kind of like an alien at times. It might help me avoid doing so unintentionally :)

Not really what I'm aiming for (I'm more of a public interest kinda guy), but I try to keep an open mind about it, as it would be nice to actually have a lot of money at some point. Plus big law is more or less the only way to make sure you have a job lined up for after graduation early in the game, which def. would make life a lot easier

I drilled nec assumption today too... Has anyone tried approaching nec assumption questions as must be true? I read that tip on a blog and I think it kind of helped on the (Cambridge) difficulty 3/4 ones.

Yeah I hear you. It was on the lsatblog website... The reasoning is basically since the stim says "required" or "depends upon" than TCR is basically what must be true for the argument to hold and is essentially the underpinning of why the negation test works. lol it is kind of confusing but I think it helped me frame the stim better in those hard nec assumption questions.

That would def confuse me bc MBT in the sense of a flaw/assumption is diff than an inference of what MBT, but it's all about da points

I'd love Southern BigLaw, but I know that's almost impossible.
