Where should I go next fall? / Advice for 0Ls
« on: March 03, 2008, 01:10:52 AM »
Just found this site and would like to offer you 0Ls some advice. As a T14 ivy league grad, I wanted to remind you guys not to overlook scholarships at strong regional schools. I turned down several non-ivy T14s and scholarships at T25 to Tier 1 schools. To make a long story short, I graduated a little bit below median and was unable to secure a job at any firm paying over 70k. I was pissed off at first because I had friends at much lower ranked schools making market (UC Davis, Tulane, Fordham, Cardozo, Loyola, etc). The good news is that I eventually got a market rate job after working a government gig for a few years. The bad news is that I still have a lot of debt.
If I could make the choice again, I would have jumped on the schools that offered me scholarships.

I hope this advice was helpful and I'd be happy to answer questions.

...and do not ask specific questions about me because I will not give away my identity.
