Excellent, kinda like shadowing about what they do and how they like it. Thanks, Jack (Bauer)! =)

Oh I see, I think I understand.

Yup, the follow up questions are now just general and not solely related to Suffolk. Thanks!

Thanks for the info. I guess I should be ok if I am not looking for biglaw (which is rare and very competitive) and regardless of the school I attend (if the school is not T14).

How accurate are the numbers on the following:

I know this site offers an accumulation of the numbers found on NALP, but how is this site (or NALP) different from lstransparency?

I guess I mean to ask is how are the employment numbers different from NALP and lstranparencey (with the exception that not all students/grads are reported in these data, as mentioned earlier on this thread)?

Thanks, Maintain FL 350, livinglegend, and jack24!

It makes sense that employers will simply use the ranks (no matter how irrelevant we think they are) in order to do a pre-analysis of the candidates. All T4 schools should roughly be viewed as the same other than their regionally recognition.

It's funny how I was rejected by a few lower-ranked but higher-ranked schools accepted my application.

These are good comparisons on the numbers of lawtranscperency website. Just curious, what other type of jobs are there for law graduates who do not pass/take the bar?

Choosing the Right Law School / Suffolk Law

I saw the employment prospect is low for Suffolk but at the same time i see that US News Ranks its individual programs in Dispute Resolution, Legal Writing, and Clinical Training among the top. Why is the employment prospect bad for Suffolk if the US News ranks the programs nationally pretty high? Also, how legit is

Im just confsued as to why so many people are attending unranked schools? Is it because they are known regionally? If so, wouldnt the job prospect employment score be higher?

I would like to practice in Texas. Yes, it's Syracuse, Loyola New Orleans, UMKC $, and U. Arkansas $. Waitlisted at St. Mary's, which is not nationally ranked but known regionally. Havent heard back from Vermont or Drexel. I saw from earlier post, Vermont isnt great.

As you mentioned, the top salaries are at biglaw and biglaw is not at these schools. So, I would like to get into commercial litgation, international/business law, immigration, and/or IP.

St. Mary's and UMKC are among the schools that are good on "value". I got into some backup schools like Southern Illinois and Thomas Jefferson. But never mind that, even though TJSL has an IP Fellowship.

I know this is an old thread from a month ago, but have you made a decision?

Thanks for the reply. I will do that. But just in case they dont give any discount for tuition, I have another question.

Would you attend a (lower T-2, #96 USNR) school that's offering only admission over a T-3 (#125 USNR) school thats giving half tution?

Obviously this is my first time applying, so I dont know what you can and cannot do.. so please dont mind this dumb question..

If you are admitted to two schools and one is offering money, is it deemed unfavorable by admissions committee and financial office to ask your first-choice school for money if you have an offer of half the tuition from another school?


Choosing the Right Law School / Question for current/former students
« on: March 05, 2013, 09:51:37 AM »
This question is for current students and law school grads.

Did you enter thinking you want to focus on a specific practice area but after starting/graduating, leaned towards a different area of law to practice? If so, could you please explain? Thanks.
