General Board / Should I be this concerned for only T3/T4 options?
« on: April 18, 2008, 03:37:11 PM »
Hello All,

I have been a legal assistant/paralegal for the last four-to-five years for the same woman who has now become partner at a different DC firm from where I started.  She asked me to work with her and so here I am.  I am now applying to law schools and so far only T3 and T4 schools are giving me the time of day.  I honestly don't do well on standardized tests (scored a 147) but have done well in school (3.30 GPA, cum laude, National Honors Society, MPA from NYU).

My question is, should I be freaked out so much right now about only being accepted to T3/T4 schools?  I would like to transfer after the 1st year but I know everyone else will be gunning for the same thing.  My boss here (the partner) loves me, as well as her husband who is also a partner at a different firm just down the street here in DC, and then the other partner at the previous firm that I worked for also likes me.  Should I count on these "connections" or be as stressed out as I am right now?

Thank you in advance for all of your comments.

Transferring / CONFUSED ON WHAT TO DO - Can I Get Some Advice?

Hello All,

I have a unique situation.  I have been a paralegal for the last five years for the same woman who has now become partner at a different DC firm from where I started.  She asked me to work with her and so here I am.  I am now applying to law schools and so far only T3 and T4 schools are giving me the time of day.  I really bomb standardized tests (scored a 147) but have done well in school (3.30 GPA, cum laude, National Honors Society, MPA from NYU).

My question is, should I be freaked out so much right now about only being accepted to T3/T4 schools.  I would like to transfer after the 1st year but I know everyone else will be gunning for the same thing.  My boss here (the partner) loves me, as well as her husband who is also a partner at a different firm just down the street here in DC, and then the other partner at the previous firm that I worked for also liked me.  Should I count on these "connections" or be as stressed out as I am right now?

Thank you in advance for all of your comments. - Jay
