Current Law Students / How important is the school you attend?
« on: January 09, 2005, 08:05:19 AM »
Hello all,

I start a p/t program this fall here in Little Rock. I am 18 years into a military career and moving to attend a different school is not an option for me. Please don't get me wrong, I am very pleased with what I've seen and heard about the school here so far. However, it is a Tier 4 school according to USNWR. My question is whether or not having a JD from this school will affect my ability to choose my job upon graduation? If I'm not looking to slave myself out at a large national firm, does the school name matter at all? From the attorney's I've talked to, this school has a good local reputation.

And while I have your attention, what about transferring? In two years I'll be able to retire. I am originally from Oklahoma and plan on moving there to practice law. Should I transfer after two years in the p/t program to a f/t program at OU (if they'll have me) or should I finish what I start here? How important is it to graduate from a law school that's in the state where you want to practice?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Who do you think the hottest TV lawyer is? I think it's a tie between Joey's neighbor and Boston Legal's Tara. Can I go to law school with either of those two??
