I'm a 3L and 1L spring sucks worse than 1L fall, but 2L fall is the worst of all the semesters so far.
Assuming that you can get a job paying 100K is a HUGE assumption coming from W&M if you finish below median. Also, those jobs paying that will keep you there past 6:30. Lawyers work long hours. Smaller pay doesn't necessarily mean shorter hours because there is competition for any legal job paying 100K+. Stop being naive and realize that if you are going to want a six figure salary you will work very hard for it no matter where you go. Also, don't make any decisions based on being a law professor. Everyone entering law school thinks that would be cool and less than 1% are able to do it.
Believe me, I'm not in any way counting on landing a professorship...ever. But I suppose I'm one of the multitudes of 0Ls who have entertained the idea of pursuing it--assuming my grades gave me half a chance. I think it's worth mentioning in the context of a UVA/W&M decision just because W&M grads realistically can't expect to become profs no matter how they did in school. Even with UVA, it's a lofty goal, but possible at least. That was my point.
W&L's new 3L ideas apparently haven't altered its ranking at all (still at 25)
Glad to see WUSTL holding strong in the top 20, I gotta wonder if all the money they're dishing out will help them move up in the next couple of years.
I'm surprised to see Pitt all the way down at 73, anyone know why they took such a gigantic tumble?
