Studying for the LSAT / Would I be eligible for Cornell or Columbia?
« on: April 06, 2009, 08:51:47 PM »

Just wondering, but, would I be eligible for Cornell or Columbia with a cumulative GPA of 3.71-3.77 and a LSAT of 170? I am double major (not sure if major gpa matters), but my business degree gpa is about 3.62 and my Philosophy gpa is a 3.95.I have had various internships and am heavily involved in extra curriculars, also my undergrad isnt prestigious or anything.

Thanks in advance!

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / law school rankings

Hey! I'm not sure if this has already been discussed, however, I had a general question regarding law school rankings and class rankings. I know if you want the BigLaw job, they say you should graduate top 5% or 10% of your class (assuming your in a lower tiered school). But, if you get into a top 10 or 20 school, who gets the BigLaw jobs? For example, I know UCLA doesnt offer students class ranks and hasnt since 1970. So how do they decide who gets the biglaw jobs? or good jobs for that matter?

Thanks in advance for anyones help!
