I must say, the fact that a Dean of the school takes the time to come on here and calm our nerves a bit is leaving a great first impression of Illinois.

Dean Pless,

What does it look like the percentage of 2Ls with offers is going to be?

I agree. This is the first example I have seen of this and I have already calmed down. Illinois just went up in my opinion.

Firms are pushing these decisions back farther and farther these days. I don't have good data on this yet, but when I do, we will share it.

Awesome. Thank you for the response.

On a related note, do you happen to know what percent of 1Ls had summer associate positions this past summer?

Not very many. With firms cutting back, 1L summers was one of the first things to go. I don't really think of this as that bad of a thing. We encourage our students to do externships in their first summers and we have a program that guarantees placement in an externship for the summer.

This is probably not a good idea posting this since Dean Pless is watching us today, but what the heck...

Under review 11/20

Now I will slowly back out of the room, hoping he doesn't see me :shock:

The guy's got 1000+ files to read over the next few weeks and he still manages to find a few minutes to post on TLS. On behalf of Ken and the entire TLS community kudos to you Dean P.

Dean Pless,

With going under review today should we expect to be in the first batch of decisions?

Once again, thank you for answering my earlier post. Every representative at the law fair in San Diego on November 5th, except the Vandy one, did an expert job at dodging these questions.

To be honest, I would much rather spend at least one of my summers at a government agency internship, but since law school costs an arm and a leg these days money is going to dominate a lot of law students' decision making.

Kinda funny. I am picking up a load on University Avenue in Urbana today! Too bad I have to be in Laredo, TX on Friday morning, or I might try and take a look around on campus. Oh well, maybe some other time :(

LOL Yeah, I'm a real trucker! If you wonder how I am on here so much, my wife writes many of my posts for me while I'm on the phone with her. She does my status checker stalking for me as well.

We had an early Thanksgiving on Sunday since I had to come home for my Vandy interview. I am definitely looking forward to getting off the truck and having a more stable schedule.... I bet that's the first time anybody's ever said that about a law school schedule, or a lawyer even! :lol:

I was being entirely serious. All the stuff you've seen on the road would definitely make you unique. Good luck!
