2L job search / Big Law from UT
« on: February 27, 2008, 07:04:50 PM »
Just curious what people think is required to get a 2L Los Angeles Big Law job from UT. I have great grades however, my girlfriend's grades arn't as good. She is has a 3.39, which is slightly above the top 50%, and we both want big law.

has anyone ever heard of someone doing really well their first year and getting a bump in their scholarship money? I was just curious if that was possible.

1L job search / Chances at a 1L big law job...
« on: January 05, 2008, 12:01:52 PM »
I put up a previous post in the 2L section by accident before I had any grades, but now I have 2. Anyways I have a 4.15 GPA at UT with 2/4 grades reported (I think top 25% is usually around 3.65). I want a big law job in los angeles and am sending out my applications this weekend. Think I have a good shot of landing one?

Thx.

2L job search / Getting a 1L big firm job...
« on: December 24, 2007, 11:06:08 PM »
I know it is extremely difficult to get a 1L summer job at a big firm. That taken into account, how well would I have to do at UT my first semester to have a shot at this type of job? Thx.

Transferring / UT ----> UCLA/USC
« on: November 05, 2007, 11:02:46 AM »
I am currently a 1L at UT and was wondering where I would need to be in my class in order to xfer to UCLA or USC for my 2L year. I am originally from LA and went to UCLA for undergrad. I had applied to UCLA but was waitlisted so I went to Texas because it was a good school and affordable. I am dying to be back in los angeles and plan on working there after law school. Thx!

Where should I go next fall? / Loyola (45k), Vandy (60k) or GULC PT?
« on: March 16, 2007, 01:02:54 PM »
Here is the deal. Right now (baring acceptance to UCLA), my choices are Loyola LA with 15k a year, vanderbilt with 20k a year (no strings), and georgetown pt. I want to end up practicing in Los Angeles. Issues I'm worried about: Vanderbilts placement in LA, Debt in general (mostly from GT), Loyola's lower rank, and how hard employers will look at a part-time program. Anyways, would appreciate all the feedback I can.

Law School Applications / USC?
« on: February 14, 2007, 05:39:14 PM »
So here is the deal. I applied to USC in mid October and still haven't heard a word from them decision wise (Although I received a completed notice in early January). Its already mid February and I am starting to get worried. My stats are: mex/american with a 3.35/167, what do you think is going to happen to me?!

Where should I go next fall? / Where should I go for SoCAL?
« on: January 18, 2007, 02:14:58 PM »
So far I have been accepted to a bunch of schools, but the ones I am only considering so far are: GTown (PT), Vanderbilt, Loyola LA (15k/yr scholarship). I am attending with my fiancee, but lets for a second assume she gets into the same schools. Which one do you think is the best option if I want to practice in Los Angles. Also assume I get into USC. How would that change what you guys feel? I would love to hear what you all think!
