3L job search / Re: Is it Acceptable to Round Your GPA on a Resume?
« on: August 15, 2008, 11:40:10 AM »
I have a 3.258 and my resume says 3.26   I feel OK w/ that, but it is a fine line you walk...

General Board / Re: Job rankings for upper middle of the class

Thanks for the input... it seems that the state agency and the small firm are the clear losers of the poll?  I appreciate anyone else's opinions...

It seems that everyone on these boards are always talking about whether it's better to work for Craveth or Fed Clerk, or In-house w/ Proctor & Gamble vs. Jones Day... The four choices I'm looking at I hope will represent a more realistic review of job prospects (and they're not sealed deals but pretty solid leads based on conversations I've had w/ the employers)

General Board / Job rankings for upper middle of the class

I'd like anyone's opinion on these choices:

1) job as an atty w/ state agency in your specific area of interest (IE: State DEP for Env Law junkie, or Dept. of Banking/Insurance for people interested in that, etc...) Salary = about $40,000

2) job as a state appellate court clerk, Salary = about $45,000

3) job as attorney w/ State House or Senate... this option might even allow for specific area of interest, IE: Senate Committee on Envir Planning, or House Growth Management and Development Committee, etc... Salary = about $47,500

4) Job w/ a small law firm that's going to be more hours, slightly more money, but mainly insurance defense or either Plaintiff's work... Salary = about $55,000

Which would you take and why... please share any thoughts
