Choosing the Right Law School / Turning down a T14 IN THIS ECONOMY!
« on: April 19, 2008, 03:47:24 PM »

I got a great deal from UT. Love Austin, and so on. Would be fine working in TX (would prefer it to the east coast really). I also got into GULC and Cornell. Assuming I get median at UT (I don't PLAN to be at median, but for the sake of argument) will I be screwed? Will a market job be out of the question? Geographically I am very flexible. Still, will I be cursing my decision next year? TYIA

again, assuming i get median, where would I mass mail from UT? Obviously all TX and CA. How about FL? LA? NV? Does UT place well there?

At a T18. About .15 above median. Working for USAO this summer. Assuming I do so-so on my spring 1L finals (fall to about median) how screwed will I be? I realize I can kiss any market job good-bye. But how about just landing...a job? When should I start my mass-mail? August I assume? Any other tips?

p.s. I realize I should just study hard and up my GPA. I like to plan for worst case scenarios. Puts my mind at ease during finals.
