Acceptances / Re: WUSTL vs. U of Minnesota
« on: April 24, 2010, 12:43:11 PM »
If it's international development or immigration/asylum law you're interested in, WUSTL is fantastic. I'm a current 3L  with a strong interest in international law, and I can attest that the curriculum and opportunities are tremendous. 

Additionally, the above poster's assertion that WUSTL is the place to go if you want a job in St. Louis is incorrect.  Most of the people I know are not working in St. Louis. Local employers tend to hire quite a bit more from SLU.

There's a whole section on the students/graduates portion of the site dealing with transfers.

3L job search / 11th Circuit Staff Attorneys

Does anyone know anything about these positions? The hiring process? I'm intrigued, but there seems to be a lack of information out there. Thanks.

Transferring / Re: WUSTL

I would suggest finding somewhere other than the Loop to get an apartment. It's a great place to go out, but there are some pretty significant issues with crime in that area. Central West End, Clayton, Brentwood and Maplewood are all decent areas to get a place. CWE has lots of bars, etc. and is somewhat less questionable than the Loop, although you have to watch out pretty much anywhere in STL for things like car break-ins.

Transferring / Re: Transfer Resume
« on: June 23, 2009, 07:40:48 AM »
Totransferornot is right - you should leave your 1L school on your resume until you graduate. The position advocated by GuysRea is misleading. I am a rising 3L who transferred last year, and when speaking to CSO about my resume for judicial clerkships, they told me that I had to leave my 1L school on there. The individual/firm you're applying to is going to realize that you're a transfer student due to your multiple transcripts, and it doesn't look good if your resume doesn't match up. It's far better to be safe then sorry in this climate.

Last year they sent out EA decisions on April 15. I think they've changed the system a little bit this year, so that might impact when they send out acceptances. Also, in response to the comment about contingent EA offers - they've had that policy in place for the last few years, but I don't know of anyone who's had an offer revoked. I was accepted EA last year and my second semester grades were not nearly what my first semester ones were. I really wouldn't worry about it too much.

I had the same experience - my application was held until my ugrad school sent in a transcript. I think most schools want the full picture, especially if your LSAT was poor.

I was top 15% of a upper T2 school. I think my G.P.A. was about 3.6 or something like that.

A paper-free office?

I applied and was accepted EA last year and simply had the school send my letter of good standing on. I guess the paper-free thing is part and parcel of their green initiative -- as a result, we can no longer purchase bottled water on campus. I suggest you get in touch with Krystal Orr in the WUSTL admissions office and ask her how to submit it. Good luck, and feel free to get in touch with me.
