Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Florida Coastal School of Law

There were over ten students in his class who got hired by GS.  They usually don't hire JDs but they made it clear that the name Florida Costal meant something to them.

Just because things worked out poorly for you doesn't mean there's anything wrong with the school.  My friend went to Florida Costal.  He finished in the middle of his class and was hired as an investment banker at Goldman Sachs.  He now make half a million dollars a year.  His situation is by no means unique.  If you can't get a job as a lawyer, the name Florida Costal is famous enough to look great on a resume.

What about the LSAT?  You think being Cheney's daughter gave her more of a boost than being an URM would've?

It doesn't help much.. People will admire the family relation but it will not give extra credit.. What matters is the persons accomplishment and how he/she perform in the school :-)

What do you base that on?  If you're Barack Obama's daughter, a top college must realize that your earning potential is going to be much higher than that of a superior student.  I'd figure they'd want to claim her as an alumna.

The advantage would be so small that it wouldn't be worth spending a year on.  It's LSAT and GPA only.

Choosing the Right Law School / How important is family background?

I saw this morning that male private part Cheney's daughter Liz has a JD from the University of Chicago.  When she applied in 1993 how important was her famous father (he had been secretary of defense).  I'm sure law schools look at that because people related to powerful politicians are likely to become important and bring interest and revenue to the school.

How famous does your mom or dad have to be for it to matter?  President?  Senator?  And are kids supposed to slip into the personal statement that their parents are important.  ("During the Gulf War, I was impressed by my father's...)

Choosing the Right Law School / Jobs for 0L?

I graduated college last year and go to law school next year.  Are there any law specific jobs I can get while I wait?

I say yes.  The initial studying gets you the most results.  Get the powerbook on critical reasoning and work through it.  All you need is a few questions per section to get to 170.
