Current Law Students / Re: I think I failed out!

The fact that I did not study is more of a hubris issue
than incompetence and stupidity. i went to a tier 1 school, did no work, and graduated at the top. at most, i was a little cocky (forgive me for this, i learned my lesson). as i said, i smartened up the second semester. im sorry for making a mistake. i'm sure you never have. Jacey85, thank you for your kind words. our posts are usually adversarial.

for those who dont believe me, i will gladly scan my business card and email it to you. i have no reason to lie. they were impressed with my resume, as i spent 4 years out of college before law school and had previously worked for the state. mommmy and daddy did nothing for me. i did it on my own. they were obviously intelligent enough to figure out that i am capable, mature, experienced, and motivated enough for this position without considering my grades and school. you are hiring the person, not the school and not the transcript. again, i will glady provide proof to all those that are speculative. yeah, my midterm grades were a 62, 95, 66, and 77. i didnt study for any of them. i learned a lesson and changed my ways for the spring. they didnt ask me for my grades, nor did they question the school.

but, that is not the issue. the issue is that im concerned about making my 70, not making up a fictious clerkship.

i attend a 4th tier school. i was very concerned about it at first. as a first year, i landed a paid clerkship for the state of new york for the summer and school year. my grades suck and my school is the lowest tier. they were more impressed by my resume and experience. they didnt even care about my school or my grades. keep this in mind before slamming 4th tier schools.

I feel like Sh*t!! I only think i did well on my contracts final. i feel like i bombed property and con law. i just landed an outstanding paid law clerk position with the NY state attorney general's office. this is a rare opportunity for a first year student. I need above a 70 to stay in and im really sweating it. the tests were ridiculously hard. a few people walked out of property and con law. i dont know what the professors where thinking. all i want is that 70. i will be humiliated if i take this job and then flunk out!!

Contrary to Jacy, as usual, WNEC is a very well respected, up and coming law school. I am currently a 1L at WNEC. I graduated from a T1 university and had my choice of law schools. WNEC is a very close knit, friendly, and supportive school. Everyone of my professors this year graduated from Harvard Law school. They are acclaimed legal scholars and very well-respected in their fields of study. They are also very approachable and willing to do anything to make law school bearable.

As far as job placement, as with any school in the 4th tier it is more difficult to get a job than a 1 or 2 tier school. this is normal. our career services office is outstanding and has a stellar record of placing graduates anywhere in the country. last years graduating class had a 90% job placement rate,6 months after graduation. In addition, the starting salaries from the class of 2005 ranged from $42,000 to $500,000. These stats are from the recently published survery of 2005 graduates.  WNEC is also going to be expanding within the next 2 years significantly.

As for as summer internship placement, despite being a first year student, I landed myself a paid ($15.00/hour) internship with the Attorney General's office in upstate NY. This was one of the many internships I was offered this summer. I beat out several Syracuse and Albany law students. Obviously, WNEC did not handicap me.

While Jacy may have valuable knowledge about the recruitment process, please do not take her posts as gospel. She is too quick to dismiss WNEC b/c of its ranking. I venture that in the upcoming years, WNEC will graduate to the 3rd and possibly the 2nd tier (perhaps a ways down the road).

i never go to class. i purchased the "examples and explainations" book for each course. my first semester average is above the mean, so im not that concerned. D for diploma!! when i do go to class i realize why i dont go to class to begin with. its just boring rehashing of what i read the night before. just keep up on the material and do your outlines. this is just my two cents. do what you will with it.
