hey, good question,
I"m a northeastern. lived in PA went undergrad at UMD.
I'd be content working anywhere between DC Baltimore or Philly. My #1 choice was Maryland. I have applied to temple, nova, and American although based on my numbers its very doubtful I'd receive $$ from those schools. Because Drexel would be so cheap I am considering.
The main question I guess was how does being a part timer affect job prospects. I have contacted Maryland and I am not eligible to switch to full time until after one year. At the time of my applications I thought part-time was my best option based on personal circumstances, although I am now coming to realize thats not so.
bottom line; will being part-time hurt my chances at biglaw jobs, wherever they may be?
