Current Law Students / Re: Help me decide Fordham vs GW vs BU.

In case you haven't noticed, every year Fordham goes down in the rankings.  It's a crappy school and only survives because of its location.  However, firms are realizing this more and more each year.....

If you got more money at GW, go to GW.  It places well in DC and NY and if you are getting more money there, then it should be a no-brainer as they are closely equal schools, with GW being slightly better in DC.

LoL.

Even at Michigan, unless you have great grades, big firms aren't going to be all over you dude.  There just isn't a need for 1L's in this economy unless you a) are on top of your game or b) Go to HYS.

Either way, the summer start program won't really benefit you in terms of jobs. However, from friends that did that program, it IS worth it because you can have lighter loads in semesters while an upperclassman and that makes life happier.......

The reality is MOST T3/T4 students don't go on to be "good" lawyers necessarily.

Just as I'm sure there are students that could succeed in medical school that never got in because of grades or their LSAT score.  You determine how you do on these exams and in undergrad.  Don't expect people to feel sorry for you if it wasn't  to your fullest potential.

I don't think it would be unfair to impose a 3.0 157 cut-off to apply, but with most admissions having LSAT scores above 160.  Don't act like this is such a terrible idea.  Medical school applicants struggle to get in with 3.7's and 85th percentile MCAT scores. 

However, in the land of milk and honey, you can be whatever you want to be.....

So then you consider regional accrediting to be "low". It should be noted that some ABA schools are not even regionally accredited such as AVE Maria which is only nationally accredited. Last I checked regional accrediting meant a lot actually.

Getting state funding hardly equates to being worth anything.  It's a scam school.  Fall for it if you wish.  If your credentials are low enough to consider this cess pool, then you need to be looking at other professions.

Let me know how well that degree works out for you.  If you can't use it, my bird always needs new poopie paper.

That's sad.  You do realize that a government salary for just about any job series will be at $70k in 2-3 years, right?  That is with nothing more than a bachelor's degree and a 3.0 gpa.
