I’m on board a Greyhound bus bound for New York right now. I will probably have very limited computer access for the next several days, so don’t expect too much blogging. It will probably be mostly audio and photo posts from the cell phone.
In the space of about five minutes just now, I was admitted to UConn Law School and scheduled for my first job interview (or quasi-interview) of the summer. Not bad for two phone calls. :)
I am meeting with a guy at Carol O’Neil & Associates, a midtown law firm (or are they a staffing firm that serves a midtown law firm? I’m not sure; I think the latter, based on this), for this position, tomorrow at 2:00 PM. I’m not sure if it’s technically an interview or not; he also said there’s a “group interview” on Friday. But whatever, I’m treating it like an interview at any rate. I need to go to Sears this afternoon and buy a decent pair of slacks. :)
I applied for the job last night after seeing the ad on the New York Times website. See, the Times is still good for something — they have good Classifieds. :)
Going to Carol O’Neil will be the second major event of my day tomorrow; first, I am sitting in on a 10:00 AM constitutional-law class at Cardozo, touring the law school (again) at 11:00, and meeting with the career-services department at 12:30. Should be fun.
My mom, for her part, has an interview for a library position at Yale University tomorrow at 10:00 AM. This is her second interview there, so she’s hoping they may be about to offer her a job.
In order to get down to New York in time for these various appointments, I plan to take either the 11:30 PM or 12:45 AM Greyhound bus from Hartford tonight. I was planning to go earlier, but I have to be at home to watch Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals on TV!
Anyway, that’s what’s happening tomorrow. As for UConn, they admitted me off their waiting list for Fall 2003 and then, at my request, deferred my admission to Fall 2004. That means my law school picture now looks like this:
Admitted for Fall 2004:
