Acceptances / Hamline with half scholarship, worth it or not?
« on: February 17, 2012, 03:04:29 PM »
I just heard from Hamline law school and they offered me a half schol, is it even worth going to this school? USnews shows that their ADR program is ranked 3rd in USA so how is that for getting a job?

Oh I mentioned earlier I guess that I am an international applicant and I stay in India.

Advantage for me is I am a lawyer in India almost ( 2 months go)

and I don't mind a small job to begin with because eventually the experience is counted and that will open up many great opportunities in the future.

Indian legal market is pretty much the same but the firms hire their own kids to their firm so even though I am from a top law school here, if I stay back even I'd be in a small firm or something. Anyway I want to come and study JD so I am focusing on that now.

How difficult would it be to find a paralegal's job or basically a corporate job because I am sort of planning to get a job and shift to the part time but I know its very difficult and everything, I am still gonna try.

what are the average salaries of city attorney or a family lawyers you mentioned earlier?

I was recently accepted to NESL and need to know more about this school. I am really worried about the whole job placement scene after graduating because it is surrounded by biggies like Harvard, BU etc.

My lsat score sucks but my GPA is good.

I am a finishing my Law degree in India so I will be a lawyer before coming to USA. I have a professional. work experience of 1 year.

I am still waiting to hear from many other universities. Hamline has put me on waitlist.

anyway, I need to know how is the grading scale of this school and how difficult can it be to be in top 10% of the class. Mostly importantly, if you are in top 10% how is your job prospectus ? In my case, I am just hoping for some international firm being interested me as I already have one law degree from a top Indian University but don't know if it really gives me an extra edge over other American graduates who will be passing out with me and especially looking at the current legal scenario of USA.

Is there anyone out there who is actually working currently after passing out from this school? do you get internships in summers while studying at this school?

You can also reply if you are a current student or know anything about this school whatsoever. Thanks!
