I've had the same thoughts re: staying here and being at the top. However, here's my concern at my school. The reputation is clearly not great. There are only about 4 BigLaw firms that interview here. Further, there are only about 30 firms that do OCI here at all. Kent, according to NALP, has about 80 firms that interview, including nearly all of the BigLaw players.
After some advice I've received on here, I'm pondering a shot at GULC. The thing is, I LOVE Chicago. I've only been here a year, and I'm not sure I want to leave the city. I've never been to D.C. I don't have a car (and don't really want one). I'm not sure what it would be like to move out there. Why wife is actually surprisingly supportive of the idea, so it *might* be doable. I'm just very hesitant to pick up and move to D.C. Thoughts?

Unfortunately, I'm a bit stuck on location. My wife has a pretty decent job here, and we just moved to Chicago in January. On top of that, lease timing wouldn't work out too well. So my options are limited to Chicago.

Not phenomenal. UGPA was 2.8ish and 159 on the LSAT.

1L job search / FAA internship
« on: January 28, 2008, 11:24:29 PM »
I've got an interview for an Summer internship in the FAA's Chicago Regional Chief Counsels office. The thing is, it's unpaid. My school has a work-study program where I can get $10/hr to work for them. I really have an interest in that area of law, and I think it would be great to work for the FAA over the summer. I probably don't have a shot at Biglaw this summer, even though I have a 3.93. Anyway, any thoughts on taking the FAA gig, or trying to find a full-time clerk job at $15-20/hr? I'm torn.

I go to JMLS. The competition isn't too bad, at least not from what I can tell. I don't feel like I put all that much extra effort into it and I got a 3.93 after my first semester. However, I can tell you that I plan to transfer out for next fall.

I just finished my first semester at a Tier 4 school in Chicago with a 3.93. Ranks aren't out just yet, but I expect to be near the top. Any idea on chances of transferring to Northwestern or U. of Chicago? My early research shows that Kent should be pretty easy, given my grades, but I'd obviously rather shoot a little higher. Thoughts?
