Law School Admissions / Re: Okay, started freaking out today

My decision has absolutly nothing to do with where my boyfriend goes, especially because when I start law school, he'll be graduated, but rather his great experience with their coop program.  Not only does he already have a job, he'll have two years more experience in his field when he graduates.  That's pretty marketable.  And for someone like me, who isn't certain about what type of law she wants to practice, having the opportunity to try different things is a pretty good deal.

I thought the score coorelated to the percentile?  Like a 150 is always 50th percentile?

1. I doubt BU or BC would even think about giving me a cent, even if I somehow got in
2. My boyfriend goes to NU undergrad, has had a job for after graduation since he was a sophomore, thanks to the coop program, which is absolutly amazing in my opinion
3. totally corny, but when I toured NU, I got that "feeling," when I was at BC and BU I just didn't.

think I have a good shot at NU?

I have (so I thought) all my applications in, but I haven't heard from anywhere yet.  I have a 165/3.3, finance major, and I've applied to BC, BU, Northeastern (top choice), Suffolk, and Quinnipiac.  I'm fairly certain I want to settle in Boston, but not 100% positive.  Any advice on other schools I should be considering? 

This is just my humble opinion.  And keep in mind that its new years and I'm drunk.  If you would decide not to go to law school just because you didn't get into a prestegious enough school, do you really want to spend three years, tons of money, and then years of your life practicing a career you're not sure of?  I've known for a long time that I want to be a lawyer, and I've applied to schools ranging from BU>BC to New England School of Law.  While I'll be disapointed if I end up at NESL, I'll still be able to be a lawyer, which is what I really want in the end.

Talk to people at Goldman.  See how many Villanova grads are there.  Villanova is one of the top schools they recruit at.  I know four kids personally who have landed jobs with them already, and I'm sure there's others I'm not friends with.  Goldman is the one who offered me the job, so I know its not BS

My two cents:  I'm a senior finance major at Villanova.  Not one of the "top" schools.  We compete with some great business schools for jobs, especially Wharton.  This being said, the majority of my finance major friends already have jobs for next year, and have had them for a while.  Companies like Goldman Sachs, Merrill Lynch, etc., the top wall street brokerage firms.  Most of them were hired for a starting salary of between 60-70.  Before I decided I was going to law school next year, one of those jobs was offered to me, and my overall is a 3.3, my tech (business classes, not just finance classes) is a 3.7.  So the degree definatly isn't worth nothing

I'm leaving for London on Monday night.  If someone has tips on what to pack, that'd be awesome!  If no one responds, I'll let you know what the weather is like, newguy

If your school doesn't have honors, you are not graduating summa cum laude.  Just put down your 4.0, that'll get the point across
