Big, no I did not get into a super law school yet - I was only able to get into T30 only with a 25% schollie, which is why I am seriously debating whether going to law school is worth it at all for me this year. I still have a shot at T10 and working on that... No matter how many cases you win - and workign for any self respecting law firm you will not be allowed in court room for the first 5-10 years with the firm - you will always be a T6, T10, T14, TT, TTT, TTTT or TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT for a wide range of opportunities, including academia, prestigious judgeships and federal jobs.
If you strive to be a lawyer, knock yourself out and go to your TTTTTTTTTT, I am sure you will learn a lot and maybe even be an awesome lawyer. However, similar to how it worked in middle ages, where no matter how able a peasant or a merchant were they would never be nobility, you will have a glass ceiling to many exciting opportunities.
Ipsa, I think as DR. LSAT would have put it you are making an unspoken assumption that performance in an Advocacy Competition is indicative of the quality of the law school education. It might, but more than likely it is simply a personal achievement only laterally related to the quality of legal education. You won over Harvard, Yale and Stanford? Good for you!!!! Now if only anybody cared.... In a few year you will learn that how smart, hard-working or capable you are matters very little in a legal world where pedigree is almost everything.
Lol, doubt biglaw will be quizzing you on the subjects during interview. Probably will be a ton of small talk amd socializing because most decisions are already made based on class rank/school rank, and a small input from social skills determined during the interview. I was 6 out of 166 in my business school with double major and have extensive interviewing experience so we will see how things go in law school...
Just because I misspoke on a stupid blog board it does not mean anything.
And that's where discussion on whether JD is another humanities degree lead us, people........
1200 monthly loan damper is one thing when you are making 1200 biweekly and totally another when you are making 4000 biweekly.
Grad schools grants are actually being cut because grad school is not considered essential education - you were supposed to get your skills yo in UG as far as government concerned. When you go to UG they see it like you are aspirring to be middle class and they like it, thus all the subsidies and loans. If you going to grad schools they see it like you want to invest into making more money (be rich) and they are not going to pay you for you to make more money, you gotta do it yourself. Especially there is not going to be any subsidies for law school students...
