    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I'm surprised that so many SF's live in Atlanta. I've just moved here after graduating from law school, and have been studying SF (while taking breaks from studying for the BAR) so that I might learn how to better clothe myself (within reason, taking into consideration my massive loan debt [​IMG] ) as my daily attire changes from jeans & shirts to suits and ties. Anyone want to take up the burden of being my local sartorial tutor?

    I was just thinking about this. I wondered if the idea had died over the last couple of months.

    I'm still in if it's happening.

    Thanks for the welcome! I just finished up at Vandy, looking forward to settling down here and planting some roots.

    Man, you're going to feel so good once you've got that packet turned in and off your back! Are you doing your summer associateship here in Atl?

    I wasn't able to land a decent firm job (apparently, it is not a good time to be entering the profession) so I'm doing a research assistantship with a professor in Athens and taking a couple summer courses this summer. I'm hoping things sort of turn around a bit, but all the entry deferrals have me worried...I'll probably have to compete with my class and the class ahead of me to find a job.

    I'm also planning on doing an MBA--I have my interview tomorrow. So hopefully I can hold off the real job search for another year.

    If there's a powerpoint presentation, I'll take care of the next two. I'll even settle for a presentation on the best kind of styrofoam cups for my high-end home stereo system. [​IMG]

    It's definitely a rough time to be looking for a job. A lot of my friends have had their start dates pushed back, and the rising 3L's are having a really tough go of it. I think the legal market will bounce back next year though.

    I hear MBA programs are a lot more enjoyable than law school!


    Man, you've been on this forum since 2006; I've clearly got some catching up to do. I just wish I would have found this place a couple of years ago. My choice in suit and shoe quality certainly hasn't been stellar. Fortunately I don't have many of either.

    Do the Atlanta people make most of their purchases on B&S/Ebay/Gilt, or do you frequent any stores?

    Are you doing your RA in the Law School? I didn't know you guys got assistantships over there! I actually have a friend doing the joint MPA/JD, and he only has funding for the MPA portion. I suppose I shouldn't mention I've found a law student with funding...

    The market is nasty all around. I'm seeing similar problems with friends coming out of grad school with professional degrees.

    Like nerdykarim, I'm in Athens, at least for the time being. I usually buy online, mostly owing the the poor selection of good stores here in Athens. When I need something and online won't suffice I usually head to Atlanta; Lenox/Phipps in Buckhead isn't bad. Though I'll be interested to see some of the true Atlanta residents input on good places to shop.

    By the way, welcome to the Forum. I hope you've got a good job in Atlanta, because this stuff can become an expensive addiction!

    Thanks for the welcome! I've got a good job, though it's not at market pay, and considering my student loans I'll have to be frugal and smart about all of my purchases...but on the expensive addiction note, after about 2 weeks on SF I'm already ashamed to be seen in about 90% of my business wardrobe. I feel compelled to upgrade, though it will have to be paced, unfortunately. At least I'll have time to become informed before I make any more poor purchases, haha.

    There are a couple threads on Atlanta shopping. Sid Mashburn is supposed to be a really nice place, though I haven't had a chance to make it out since the store opened. We also have a couple big malls in Buckhead with a reasonably-decent Filene's Basement across the street. This thread has some other suggestions. I get a lot of stuff on the B&S and eBay, though.

    It's in the law school, but (other than a few free course credits...which ain't bad) it is decidedly unpaid. At this point, though, I'll take what I can get...and I'm hoping that a good relationship with a professor will help me out a bit in the long term. I'm a textbook small-timer.

    If you can, hold off on making any big purchases for a few months. Many of us (myself included) found that our tastes became a little more focused after a few months of reading.
