Current Law Students / Re: What do PDs and Prosecutors do after?

It just seems that a very large percentage hop to the other side and start doing defense work.  I mean...is the money that good to where these ex prosecutors are willing to defend those they were sending to jail not too long ago?

It seems all i hear about are criminal defense attorneys hanging their own singles after their time as a PD or a prosecutor.  Is this the general/only career trail?  What else can prosecutors do after their time working for the government?

LSAT: 158
LSDAS GPA: 3.82
Gradaute degree
Good letters of recommendation and good ECs

I was told that a LSAT of 163+ is a virtual lock for a full tuition scholarship when I applied for Fall '07. I am assuming your GPA isn't ridiculously low.  We got a new dean this past year, and I believe the amount of scholarship money available increased. It may now be a little easier to get a scholarship.

Good Luck

I saw that chart, but it isn't very clear.  Does it mean that those are the minimum stats to be considered for a scholarship for any kind - full or partial?  Or does it mean that those with those stats will automatically be offered a scholarship (full/partial)?

can you provide more details?  Are you a traditional (from ug) student?  Anything spectacular in terms of soft factors/extra curricular?  Are you in state?  Are you a urm?  Thanks for the info.

I am curious as to whether anyone can provide information on what is needed for a full scholarship to UB.  I was previously a 1L at a tier 2 school but had to withdraw mid year due to some family issues and related financial problems.  I can go back to my original school, but at a considerable financial cost.  I would love to finish my legal studies, but due to my circumstances, I can't afford to move back away for school (from the DC/MD area, have md residency).  I dont care about "big firms" - i just want to be able to practice.  So, does anyone have a full scholarship from UB?  If so, what were your stats?  Thanks for the help.

Transferring / Re: Villanova and Temple status

If you're at a T2, then why transfer to another T2?  Just curious....as the only way id transfer is if it was to a T14.

This dude is obviously a flame.  But on that note, i met up with some guy in college that i went to middle school with.  Back then, he was known to smoke a lot and roll a lot.  He was very bright, but was always one of those people who never listened to what anyone said and had to try everything for himself and make the mistakes for himself.  Well we became friends again in college, majored in the same major, etc.  Then at graduation, he graduated sum cum laude (top 1% or so at my school) to my extreme surprise.  Since, hes been working on Capital Hill and deferred his admission to gtown law so he can "enjoy" the new congress some more.

Id be more concerned with being surrounded with squares like the OP (though hes not legit) than the person he described.

how do you know this that far in advance?  I assume just good ol'fashioned nepotism (not that i wouldnt take advantage of it).

An actual clerkship gig for a judge doesn't seem to happen often for 1l summers...  Also, a fed level clerkship is much more prest thatn a state level one fyi.


Actually judicial internships are probably the most common 1L position of all.

he said clerkship in his original post.
