Agreed, don't make it sound so easy to be top 1/3 at GW.  It gets more and more competitive with each incoming class.

Either way, quit freaking out 0L girl.... Are you hot by the way?  In my mind you are hot lol.

You will do fine.  Just roll with it.  That's all you can do, no matter where you go.

Yeah, I wish I could switch and graduate early.  @#!* law school haha.  Oh well, it's nice to have minimal debt.

I still think you are likely socially special.

Yes, 1Lman = 2Lman, but stupid lawschooldiscussion keeps switching it for some reason.  This site is all jacked up.

Yeah, if you get below a 3.0 at GW you will have bigger problems on your plate.  No worries, it won't happen.

Thorc, I thought 3.25 was the median, is it 3.2?

yea, i dont know, i thought it was around a 3.2, it might be higher though.  you might be right.  Either way, I cry if I get below a 3.7, lol.

You have a 3.7 thorc?  You seriously must be socially retarded then if you struggled to get an offer.  My buddy in the PT program had a 3.5 or 3.6 and he had 10+ offers.

No, they aren't complete slackers I don't think.  You will see, law school is strange.  Studying hard doesn't mean you are going to get good grades.

Also, everybody at GW is intelligent.  It's not like undergrad where if you work hard you get an "A."  That simply isn't the way it is in law school. You are on a forced curve, something very different from the majority of undergraduate programs.

It should mean that, but unfortunately it is not the case.  The AAMC monitors admissions to medical schools, graduation, passing the boards, admission to residency programs, and completion of residency programs....  The ABA has a one-time exam.  Do you see the deficiency here?

Business school graduates and sales people are not equipped with a tool to potentially ruin someone's life.  A licensed attorney can do just that and therefore the profession should require more monitoring.

Yes we do.  I hate to break it to you, but most big city prosecutors went to top schools.  There is NO need for TTTs and especially TTTTs.  There just isn't. If there were only two-tiers, then everybody would end up in some legal job and you wouldn't have the struggle that goes on with some of your fellow-classmates (assuming you go to a TTT).

However, continue to argue the facts.  It is reality that many TTT grads will STRUGGLE to find ANY meaningful legal employment.

There is no set GPA for top 1/3, however, it will vary based on the particular school's curve and how students do in accordance with it.

Also, at GW, a 3.0 would be bottom half of the class.  GW is on roughly a 3.25 median.  That means half the class is above and half below.

Right, I agree that BC has a better brand name in Boston (well maybe, BU definitely so, not sure about BC).  However, BIGLAW is still only going to recruit from the top 1/3 at BC.  There is simply no need to pull those outside of it ON AVERAGE.
