Leaving Portland, Graduating from Law School
« on: May 10, 2010, 05:50:02 PM »
Hey, I am in class ready to take the last exam of my law school career (assuming I pass all my classes this semester!). After this I'm moving back to the San Francisco bay area, then it's a summer of studying for the NY Bar exam, a winter of studying for the CA Bar exam, and then some kind of job hunt (or self-employment).

I'm a little sad to be leaving Portland, a little glad to be going back to the bay area, a bit worried about the bar exams I'm taking (said to be the two hardest ones), I'm equally worried about paying off my $125k worth of student loans, and I am absolutely terrified of the Corporate Tax exam I'm about to take. I thought this would be the best place to share my worries.

Also, if any of you run law firms in California or New York, I have plenty of resumes.

I'll chip in 20 bucks. ;D

So you're leaving Portland, eh? Can I move into your apartment?
Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

Ha, I meant $125,000 of student loans. Sorry for the confusion. If you need a Portland apartment, Bristol Equities is my current management company, and they have a lot of cool affordable buildings in the Alphabet District (my preferred neighborhood) - you can look them up at bristolequities.com. I live in "the Metropolitan" and I like my building a lot for the low rent that I paid here.

I understand taking the CA bar if you're from SF, but why take the NY exam too?  Are you a sadist, perchance?  One bar exam was enough for me!  ;)

In any case, congrats on graduating!  It's a great achievement!
