I think it depends on the type of PI work that you want to do. The difficulty is probably different if it is a PD office vs. Bigfed vs. Sierra Club, given the diversity under the "PI" umbrella

This is true. Could potentially depend on the BigLaw practice as well, I'd imagine.

It disappoints me that no midwestern PD offices hire pre-bar

trust the process and don't get down on yourself or psych yourself out. A lot of test day struggles can be avoided that way.

I'm not familiar with how hiring works, but my local proosecutor, which I think translates to something like a DA, got his position out of law school. Midwestern state

Yeah there are PD/DA offices in the midwest that hire entry level but I know, at least for PD, that they don't hire pre-bar 3L classes like some cities/states do. It makes it way riskier to gun for them in an already unpredictable hiring system

If you are in a busy part of the country, register for the test early so you don't get waitlisted and have to travel 100+ miles the night before and add even more nerves to game day.

fwiw registration opened today

Yeah you are also in a populated area, I'm tempted to take it in the sticks where it is just me but my TC is a 2 minute drive from my house here.

Maybe a little nervous rn but not crippled

2 mins?? lucky!! closest one to me by pub transportation is about an hour, but by car is my UG or an UG near mine (but I'm familiar w my school's area so obv I will choose my UG) which at 7something A.M on a Saturday would be no traffic so maybe like 30 mins

Ahhh. I really want to take it at my UG but I feel like seeing a familiar face might cause unnecessary stress on test day.

I just checked mine for September and the closest one for me is an hour and forty minutes away. With an 8:30 am test that means I'll have to get a hotel Friday night.

Good call. One my 1st test I drove 2 hours that morning, 3rd test I crashed on a friend's couch. Both went poorly. My good score came when I stayed 10 minutes away by myself
