Where should I go next fall? / Anybody Interested in Lobbying?
« on: January 07, 2010, 01:03:33 AM »
I have always thought being a lobbyist would be an interesting career (I seem to be attracted to sleezy jobs: lawyer, lobbyist, politician, assasin etc.) From what I have researched getting a law degree seems like a good starter on doing that.  I read that once people graduate from law school a lot of people  1) Practice BIGLAW or start their own practice and become filthy rich, become a politician, and then use their connections to become lobbyists 2) Work as government attorney, make connections, and become a lobbyist or 3) Straight out of law school go right into a lobbying firm. Do grunt work for a couple of years until they make the right connections and then move up in the company or start lobbying solo.

Is anybody else interested in lobbying and if so how do they plan on doing it?  Any good ideas for what law schools would be best to attend? I assume one in the D.C area would be the most effective...

Brigham Young / Is BYU a Feeder School?
« on: January 04, 2010, 05:18:21 PM »
Hi, I am a pre-law student at BYU-Idaho. I plan on graduating with about a 3.75 and (fingers crossed) a 165 LSAT. My question is will going to a lower rank under-grad school decerase my chances of getting into the BYU law school.  I assume because most of the law students at BYU are mormon it is probably a big feeder school.  In the mormon community BYU-Idaho is often looked down on as a school for people that "couldn't get in at provo."  That is not the case for all of us. I could transfer to Provo but I would have to re-take come classes and my GPA would probably take a hit. Is it worth it? Any advice would be great. Thanks.
