Law School Applications / Show me the money . .. . . What would you do?
« on: September 15, 2004, 11:41:35 PM »
A friend of mine offered me a job for $135,000/yr with benefits at a major oil services company. It's a tough job, overseas. I still want to pursue a law degree, but I must be patient for years of school (part-time school, full-time paralegal) before I ever see the same kind of money. Moreover, I will have who knows how much debt after law school. What would you do?

Where should I go next fall? / Law firm web sites

If you are like me and don't have the scores to get into the school of your choice, try this idea: Look around in the websites of law firms that practice the kind of law you think you want to practice or that have offices where you might want to work. Check out the law schools of their attorneys. I was a little surprised to see that Baker Botts, for instance, hired about the same number of attorneys from University of Texas as they did from University of Houston. I did notice that most of the U of H people were law review, though. In addition, Baker Botts hired some people from Tier 3 and Tier 4 schools - not as many, however.
