General Board / Low GPA Mitigation??
« on: November 15, 2006, 10:30:58 PM »
My situation: I have a low GPA (2.3) from a top 20 private school, after transferring in with a 3.7 from a community college. The costs for the private was crushing (40,000+), thus I was forced into working fulltime (40+), overnight (10:00 pm-7:00 am) and was not in a situation to take the necessary loans.  I have great extracurricular activities/ leadership and work experience. After graduation I worked for a private firm in China, and the House of Commons in the UK. My letters of recommendation are from alumni of the school I intend to apply (Itís a top five school). One is a Trustee of my university and the other is Professor that I did research for.  I also have letters from the China and the UK. I have not taken the LSAT, but I imagine I would need damn near a perfect score to look reputable. What are my options?

1L job search / BIGLAW Substitute?
« on: November 14, 2006, 11:02:49 AM »
If a 1L couldnít get a BIGLAW job for the summer, could interning as an Analyst at a bulge bracket investment bank(Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan etc...) be used as a substitute, the profession does pay really well.
