OP, don’t listen to the jealous haters on this thread. Maybe talk to a few partners and/or mentors to decide the best path forward tailored to your specific goals.

I mean. What kind of securities law? I can't imagine ot hurting but it would be about the 20th thing that might tip the needle if I were hiring....there a myriad other things that are mote useful. Like even reading the front page of the WSJ, MoneyStuff by Matt Levine, the Economist, Dealbook from NYT, and Term Sheet from Fortune would be more useful for deal, business and financial literacy.

Has anyone taken the Series 7 while working in BigLaw? It’s something I’m interested in, but sponsorship is an obvious hurdle.

Hey guys,

Just a paralegal here trying to not dwell on the small things in life.
Recently got a 141 on my LSAT with no studying - I feel like a failure in life. Can someone please explain to me how good or bad my score may be? I re-take in January and if there is no resolution to this algorithm, I will just take my professor advise and lean towards public policy. Law is my passion but I don’t want to lead myself into an endless walk of shame ending where I am now. Any thoughts?

Just realize I screwed up some research and came to the wrong result for a client, which the partner provided to the client as well. It became inconsequential because the client found something else more legitimate to make the same decision we advised him on, but I’m doing additional research on a similar issue and found statutory language to support a different outcome than what I had originally thought. I’m not sure whether to just let it go or talk to the partner about the additional

Bonus gets paid in early February, meaning the soonest I would be able to leave is late February, meaning the soonest I could start is early March. This timing doesn’t work. Do I forgo the bonus?
