after reading blogs like http://www.washingtoncitypaper.com/display.php?id=34054http://temporaryattorney.blogspot.com/http://thirdtierreality.blogspot.com/
All of these blogs paint an extremely dismal picture for 90% of grads coming from nearly every school that is not in the top 10 or 15.
I have to wonder if what these people are saying is really accurate or not or if these are just a few people who graduated at the bottom of their classes and didnt try to use the career services at their school, and are now stuck doing temp document review. I could be wrong and maybe its nearly impossible to get a decent 100K job from a school in the top 100 and outside the top 10, but something seems strange when i read these blogs. I mean take a school like cardozo, or fordham, or washington U in st louis. top20ish top 30ish. all post median salaries in the 100K range or a little more. yes the 1op 10% of the class will do well, but what about a guy in the middle of the road at these schools, or maybe lower 25th percent of his class. do these people just get no jobs?? what kind of jobs do they get??.
Im starting to think that unless i get into a top 10 school, which wont be easy for me, mayybe cornell, and mayybe northwestern though its doubtful; perhaps i shouldnt goto a school unless i get a full ride, or unless i can come out with less that 20K in debt ( w/ a big scholarship)
is anyone else having similar thoughts?
