Nope; joke, sorry.
I only applied to one school where I'm over both 75ths and haven't gotten decision yet.

You know this answer in your heart. So yeah, probably! Do you have a router/modem combo thing that came from your provider? Those usually suck.

yeah I get it from my provider. is there anything you recommend?


Not really, unfortunately. One of my roommates is in CS and really into this stuff so I don't know much, other than that he is pretty insufferable when things aren't working well... We're currently in a big house built in the 60's so he's taken it upon himself to create a wireless network that works for the house, i.e. drilling holes in the floor to get a second router downstairs and all that. I can ask hm if you want lol

Copying other people's notes/handwriting in general to type is so tedious - I hope I'll never have to make anyone do mine!

I'm a legal assistant, and when I first started I primarily worked for the oldest attorney at our firm who is super old-school. He has TERRIBLE hand-writing, and it's my job to enter his timesheets into our billing software. The first time I had to do it, I legitimately could not read a single word he had written. (That has changed after a more than a year, though. Now I'm the expert on deciphering his notes.)

Does anyone else have a stressful paralegal job?Kind of want to leave early and get any easier job but our busy season lasts until end of march.
And we have some staffing issues so I need to give as much notice as possible to be a decent person.

Also I work in immigration so times are particularly volatile.

Yes. I love my job but started during finals week before graduating and have taken zero days off so far that are not law school related. I want a little break before starting school again. I'll probably leave at the end of June.

When are you planning on leaving? And when are you planning to give notice? I'm tentatively thinking I'll give notice as soon as I decide on a school.

10-8? Those seem like strange hours. Is there a particular reason? Also, that view is amazing! I don't even have a window by my desk (although our view is nothing exciting so who really cares).

Also, @Keilz--I'm also interested in hearing about your immigration paralegal work!

work for a partner who comes in from 11-7
my actual workday is 10-6, but I'm usually here an extra 2 hours finishing work

KEILZ TELL US

at my last job (ven cap/REIT), my hours were 10-5; and the partners would come in from 12-3, buy us lunch, then fumble around with their desk drawers (skiing), and then leave.

I think I'm going to end up with a WL from all 3 schools that I wrote a why X for. 2 that I'd have expected to get into. In case anyone is wondering about the viability of those things. Apparently my complete lack of focused interest in my application materials to other schools has been a positive, as I got into 3 higher ranked schools than either of those 2 using generic applications with no additional essays

I did not write a Whyx for any school besides Cornell (because they make you in the app). I have only been denied from Cornell and accepted everywhere else that has given me a decision. :lol:

Damn. I was trying to take a picture of my view but I can't without including identifying info of either me or my company.

Basically, I see cement walls.
