General Board / Re: top 15-20% from T2

top 15% and you have a good shot at a mid size or big firm.  I think you can break into a top 20 law school.  Best of luck

hmmm, I wonder what the job placement distribution is at a DL.  I mean I doubt most DL students are aiming for a big firm job or judicial clerkship.  And since that is the case, not to bash anyone, but aren't they only slightly worse off than tier 3/4 students at the bottom of their class in terms of job prospects?

maybe they purchased a significantly larger building.  This might be an attempt to help the school move up in the rankings. ???

I have days where I can barely tolerate most of my classmates. As far as hating law school goes, I like law school but I hate whoever is in charge of scheduling for this semester.

We had mock trial last weekend, client counseling comp this weekend,  journal competition is over the whole next weekend (which is the first end of spring break) THEN the week after spring break our appellate briefs are due AND the moot court competition begins. All the big events this semester are compounded into a 3 week period. It kinda pisses me off, but I guess it's better than having any of it right before finals.

Anyway, just wanted to get that off my chest.

In four weeks you'll be able to congratulate yourself for a job well done and treat yourself for a weekend

I do hear that Jones day associates (in certain offices) tend to be happier than their counterparts and have better hours.  I'll take better hours and enjoyment over a large bonus check any day!

They will want to take a look at those second semester grades!  Why would a firm take a person who rocked the first semester, and let their performance second semester drop tremendously?  It shows a lot about that person!

I recommend Law School Confidential.  It is a pretty good read, discussing the inns and outs of law school.  Definetly get a laptop with as much RAM as possible, and buy the best warranty plan you can get!
