not gonna lie......i thought about it.....what do you think my chances are at NYU or Columbia tho?  I would consider Fordham or Brooklyn, but I feel like I'd still need to be up there in my class ranking at either of those schools (especially Brooklyn) to be competitive.  Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm under the impression that just graduating from NYU or Columbia (no matter what your class rank is) puts you in terrific shape in terms of employment prospects, as opposed to graduating top of your class from NYLS.

And can you just give me your thoughts on jobs for this summer....I still need to do well 2nd semester also for transferring to be realistic.  Based solely on my 1st semester grades though, what do you think are my best job possibilities for this summer?

Thanks.

So I just got back my grades for my first semester at NYLS and to my complete ( but very pleasant) surprise I managed to pull off straight A's.  With a 4.0 GPA at a T3 school in the toughest legal market in the country (arguably)........does anyone have any suggestions for the summer? What are my chances of makin some moolah at a firm (big or medium - most likely medium)?  I'm fairly confident that I'll find something unpaid but do my first semester grades help me find something better when I'm competing with the NYU/Columbia/Fordham's....etc???


Any direction would be a huge help!

Thanks!

I will be starting NYLS in mid-August and will therefore be moving into the city sometime during the summer.  If anyone else out there will be going to school in NYC and is looking for a roommate (or knows someone who needs a roommate) feel free to contact me. 

I'm looking to spend an absolute max of $1300 (including utils) but would definitely prefer to spend less. 

I'm a 23 year old guy, grew up on Long Island, and I'm definitely pretty laid back.  I play the guitar (acoustic so I wont be blowing the windows out), very courteous, dont smoke or do drugs (and want my roommate to be on the same page there), but I do enjoy a good brew.   I'll be studying my ass off but dont want to go mad and do want a life so I definitely do intend on giving myself time to go out.   

If you want to shoot me an email with your thoughts feel free ... my email is absilv123@gmail.com
