It is your own desire, grit, hard work, and potential that will ultimately determine where you go.

I know plenty of people who didn't graduate college and harvard grads are applying to work for them. As for law school, some of the most respected attorneys I know didn't go to top law schools. But that criteria has importance attached for some people.

Current Law Students / Re: Would This Be A Helpful Website?
« on: January 19, 2016, 05:01:04 PM »
I am in the process of designing a website for law students and lawyers looking for a jobs at law firms. The site would basically list user names of users and (1) tier of school they attended, (2) rank at that school, (3) firms they applied to, (4) whether they received a callback, (5) whether they received an offer, and (6) offered salary if they received an offer. You could then search by school or by firm to see comparable users and who obtained what types of jobs.

I am just trying to gauge some interest before I put in the time and effort here.

Interesting concept, but I agree possibly some confidentiality issues or at least considerations. If the website is intuitive, accessible, and can be easily promoted it could be worthwhile.

You will be fine. I went thru a similar type experience and the one thing that helped me get through it all was exercise. I started exercising and I felt a lot better. My focus returned and I really started to enjoy school more.
I ended up running a half marathon my third year.

Just keep at it a little bit longer and things will get better. Exercise and enjoy yourself!
