Choosing the Right Law School / Who to address scholarship requests to?

FinAid office/director? Adcom/dean of admissions?

Assuming I could acheive my maximum lsat score potential, realistically 169-171, and improve my applications (more why x essays, new lor's, etc.) for next you think it would make any difference in how my cycle has turned out so far (see lsn below) considering my miserable gpa of 2.6? I think that my gpa is so low it would prohibit me from ever cracking T14 and leave me with slim chances at T25 even if I could break 170. Am I correct in this assumption? The bottomline is do you think waiting another year [which i would prefer not to do] and the risk of not doing better on the lsat is worth it for a small chance to get into a T25 next cycle ???

Choosing the Right Law School / What about government jobs?
« on: February 15, 2008, 08:58:01 AM »
A lot of talk seems to focus on what it takes for BIGLAW and relating quality of schools in terms of placement ease in biglaw. I am primarily interested in working for the government after graduation [something along the lines of EPA, FERC, etc]. What is the general consensus of what it takes to land government jobs? Is it correct to assume federal is more competitive than state/city? DOJ, USAO, CIA toughest spots to land? Does T14 still dominant placement in govt positions? Does attendance at a public school have any impact? tyia!
