I took Japanese my freshmen year and received two Ds. Is that a good enough reason?

Thanks guys. Also, is a 2.76 more excusable than it is if I told you guys I tried to take Japanese my freshmen year and received two Ds? That's honestly why my GPA isn't a 3.0.

2.76, 176, Black Male.

Hey all,

I don't have a chance at Yale or Stanford and pretty sure Harvard is out of the question as well but what about the other T14 schools?

I'd really like to go to Columbia but obviously would be open to NYU, Northwestern, Chicago, UPENN or Georgetown. Any advice you guys could offer would be great.

A little background: I attended a NESCAC school, am actively involved in a couple of non-profits and currently work for either the number one or number two law firm as a paralegal.

Thanks!

Thanks a lot.

Besides the usual softballs what are some curve ball questions they threw at you?

I am a senior in college and I do not think it's smart to go to law school directly after so I'm looking for law-related jobs next year.

I have landed any interview with a BIGLAW firm as a paralegal and I'd really would like the offer. My interview is coming up soon and I was hoping you good folks here could offer me some advice I haven't heard anywhere else. Perhaps wearing a solid tie is better than a striped tie, I don't know. What type of personality should I convey? Are there any specific questions I should ask? Any information I should know?

Also, what is a usual salary for a BIGLAW paralegal. What is the lowest and the highest?

Thanks in advance.
