Job ops will be much harder to get and for the most part, only a limited number of firms recruit on campus. However, JMLS has a large alumni base with graduates in nearly every major firm in the city. If you come out with stellar grades you will be fine.

So this admission cycle sucks for me. I am going to retake in June and get all apps out as early as allowed. I was wondering if I could change the recommendations that are on file? I only have 2, and by the time a reapply will have 2 new ones, like stronger than one I have on file now. Can I get rid of that one, and replace it with these two, or am I able to request that that rec not be sent to any school. It was in before they switched to new school speficic option for recs.

I know there are so many different positions for attorneys in federal and local government after law school, but was wondering how tough some of those jobs are to get. I would assume that being a public defender or working at the DAs office probally isnt to hard, while getting in at the FBI is extremely tough. Does anyone have insight this issue? Does law school reputation matter as much if you want to work in government for a while.
Also, for those of you that work at the USPTO, I submitted an application for a position as a patent examiner (biotech art) and didnt hear back. They are done their hiring, so i think mostly PhDs were offered the position. Would a JD help getting the patent examiner position, especially if I would be working in a lab for 4 years while in LS?

Yeah, that awning sure did make it look sketchy. I only drove by the place slowly, so i didnt get a chance to see inside, or see if there were other buildings at were associated with JMLS. Although the street its on seems like an alley, I really liked the part of the city it was in. I think the schoool should revamp their exterior to look more like the Chicago Bar Association next door. I bet the older look of the place scared off potential students.
