Re: Ethnic minority last names affect your application and interview  
  by: Paul Campos   on: February 24, at 7:21:08 am   in: Legal Employment
Lauren Rivera's excellent book Pedigree: How Elite Students Get Elite Jobs outlines in detail how upper class status gives applicants a big edge in elite professional service industry hiring, including big law hiring. She's also just co-authored a study finding that upper class status gives a huge boost to male applicants from non-elite law schools when applying for big law jobs, but doesn't seem ...

What exactly are any of you advocating here? Just because Canadians are 28% less likely to hire an Asian for whatever job postings the resumes were submitted to literally proves nothing. Out of curiosity, what is your interpretation of the results of the study/what do you believe explains the seeming gap? I think the study is meaningless. Others think the study proves all hiring is racist. and so...

You didn't put your cost of attendance.

If you want Chicago why are you dismissing an IU fullride?

You might as well stay in the waitlist. A second deposit isn't binding if you are still waiting for admission decisions.

Your stated career goals also seem to contradict your initial statement, which was that you don't have to go to biglaw.

Work experience is always good, but the difference between a job that you perceive as more prestigious/admissions-friendly/whatever and just a regular job is negligible. No matter what, your reported GPA (which is usually on superior/above average/etc. scale) is going to be an issue, so getting the LSAT as high as you can is much more important. So get the job you want, and make sure you have an L...

This.

That's what I argued. But then argued improper execution of the warrant, where proper execution is without delay and according to the specific time and place of the warrant. But maybe harmless error bc of the improper execution?
