i didn't take secured trans / commercial paper in law school and found the material to be pretty accessible through bar/bri's overall presentation of it. the tough area is T&E - i'm having a semi-tough time assimilating it (first time exposure)

yeah i hear you. it's awful. i've definitely hit the wall - though i'm somehow still working. i guess it's the fear. oh well. it'll be over soon enough.

Transferring / Re: top 10% at T3 is what % at a T20 (GW) ? - (OCI)

it's impossible to say as it's 100% employer dependent. different firms are going to have different methodologies with regards to how they view transfer students.

i suggest that you take the shotgun approach with regards to your 35 (if i remember correctly) bids. i'd reserve 10 or so slots for "dream firms," and then place the remainder with a generally more accessible group of large firms. i wouldn't waste bids on small to med sized firms at this point. you can turn your attention to these firms post OCI should you wash out.

i wouldn't worry too much. i knew a t4 transfer (friend of mine) who ended up with an elite DC biglaw firm after 2L OCI. nuggets like "50-35%" are essentially hearsay with little to back them up; it's impossible to know what each firm is going to look at.

Transferring / Re: GW over Michigan??

step 1) go to michigan; all other considerations being equal, michigan is clearly the superior law school and is, uh, alloted the superior reputation

step 2) learn to spell "a lot" correctly sometime before entering one of the nation's most elite and storied law schools...

biglaw aspirations? w&l

It [WUSTL] also seems to have slightly better employment stats, a lower student to teacher ratio, a bigger library. But the difference is really not that substantial.

this is your conclusion re WUSTL v. DU? i think that maybe it's time that someone from the LSD advice dept receive their walking papers .. ;)

assuming that you need, as an average, traditional medical school applicant, a MCAT of 31-33 and a GPA of 3.4-3.7 to receive admission to medical school, you would, correspondingly, need at least a 160-3 LSAT and a similar GPA to obtain admission to a law school [if the genera admissions standards / criteria were to become the same].

granted, such a system would reserve law school for only those who were able to test into the top 10% or so on the LSAT, but at least, maybe to some degree, some prestige would be returned to the profession (but who really cares)
