Current Law Students / Re: Accepted to law school w/o undergrad degree?
« on: February 07, 2006, 09:04:05 PM »
cali technically offers that but i think no people did it this year, but you would be a fool to not get undergrad, any firm wants to see a good law school and although undergrad isnt as important the lack of one would raise a red flag.  As far as the 5 year thing I wouldnt be too worried although its true most schools average lsat scores, if they see one out of high school I doubt they would average it if you wrote a letter explaining it (or just have fun in college and take 5 yrs to graduate lol)  here is link showing cali stats (ABA is way to go though, after college degree) http://www.calbar.ca.gov/calbar/pdfs/admissions/Statistics/JULY2005STATS.pdf

Job Search / Re: do law schools hire their own students?

Ive only heard of this happening to boost their rankings.  They hire the bottom of the class to low paying jobs to be able to report a higher percent are working within 6 months of graduation.  Alumni on the other hand often hire from their schools.

Transferring / Re: Transferring from 4th Tier

i transferred from cal west to usd and was ranked in top 15%.  There were probably 15 of us who got in from cal western, only 1 from thomas jefferson so not only does rank matter but what 4th tier school.
