I finished my first semester around the top 5% at Fordham, however I fear I may fall to around the top 3rd when all my grades come in.  I was accepted EA into Gerogetown FT.  I want to work in biglaw, preferably nyc, but I also want the option of working in other cities, as I have two years to go and often change my mind about what I want to do.  other things about me: not much work experience, ivy undergrad.  Any insight would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

I'm top 5% at a T25, ivy undergrad, but very little work experience, and the experience I do have is not related to law.  Is it a waste of time to apply for 1L biglaw gigs?

     I am new to this site.  I was recently accepted into Vanderbilt off the waitlist, and I now need to choose between BC, Fordham and Vanderbilt.  My situation is as follows:
     I am a resident of New York City, and I believe I will most likely want to work in Manhattan.  I went to my undergraduate school up North, and I feel comfortable here.  I am fairly well off so monetary issues aren't a primary concern, however BC has offered me a 15K scholarship per year.  Fordham and Vanderbilt have so far offered me nothing.
     I am still currently on the Cornell waitlist and will attend if admitted.  I am however very torn over my current options, and any advice would be appreciated, particularly concerning employment options in the Northeast from the three aforementioned schools.  I am also Jewish, and I am curious as to the level of acceptance for Jews down in Tennessee.  Any other feedback would be appreciated.
