i am at the relatively new law school, Elon University. needless to say, there is no reputation as the school's first graduation won't take place until next year. it's a good school, though, good people.
i am in the middle of my second semester of my first year. i have a 3.1 gpa, putting me in the top 25%. i have already passed the patent bar.
i am just looking for some thoughts about my transfer potential. first, do i have a shot at a place like DePaul or Kent? second, do i even have a shot at a place like John Marshall Chicago or maybe Stetson? third, would it even be better for me at John Marshall?
really, i'll work anywhere. location isn't the most important thing.
the most important thing is putting myself in the best POSSIBLE position for success.
With the patent bar behind you I would not worry about suceeding. You will be fine coming from any school.
Are you kidding me?
Patent bar or not, I hate to break it to you but Biglaw doesn't do much recruiting from Elon or the other above mentioned schools.
Thinking long term instead of like the typical law student, whether BigLaw does or doesn't recruit from Elon is not that significant.
The rules are changing. But nobody's telling that to the kids.
