Incoming 1Ls / Is this really worth it?
« on: June 29, 2005, 03:09:48 PM »
I'm leaving a cushy job (85K+ with hardly any responsibilities) to go to law school. It's become clear that new grads should not expect high paying jobs. Is anyone else having second thought about going to law school or starting to come to the realization that they are making more now than they will when they are a lawyer?

Baff, maybe you can have them switch your app to the evening pool.  With your numbers you would definately be in.  You can switch to full time after 1L and I did the math and you save like 10 grand by doing evenings for 1L then FT for 2 and 3L.

This is true but your ass is worked into the ground! You have to take a summer session and I believe you are not completely caught up by August. It's a LOT of work but if it is your goal, then more power to you.

f I were you Baff, I would plan on attending Suffolk. You very well may get into UCONN but why spend your whole summer planning for something that may not happen? If you make your Suffolk plans and get off the UCONN waitlist, then you can make a descision about it. You might even be so excited about Suffolk that you decline UCONN. I think that you should just try to put it out of your mind for as long as possible.

This i what makes Cooley the butt of so many jokes:

Letter to Donald J. Polden:

Dear Dean,
Why the fahk were 16% of your 04 graduates unemployed 9 months after graduation?  This is more significant than a .1 increase in reputation, and this is why you are now in the 3rd tier.


Agreed - Isn't this the most important thing for all of us coming out of LS? If you can't even find a job, who cares what the average starting salary is?

The dean also forgot to analyze the scores of the schools around SC. Those schools probably improved much more than SC did.

I did withdraw. I hope you get good news from them.

Maybe you should PM kristay. She visited SH and had been singing their praises ever since. She's a good source of info.

I'm just kidding

I'm rooting for ya BAFF. You've hung in like a champ. Good luck in the coming months. I truly hope to see you in Hartford this fall.

What's the money difference between the two? Are you set on working in Boston? If so, BU is clearly the better choice. I've learned that UCONN can place there but there's obviously no comparison when you factor in your ability to get summer placement in Boston through BU. If you are not set on Boston, I would still consider UCONN depending on the price.
