You're right.  It's been at least two years since that strangulation incident, so I'll stop worrying...

Anyone know what type of jobs there are in human rights?  what type of organizations can you work for?  what would your daily work entail?  how much would you be paid?  any QOL issues?

167, 3.74 (degree, don't know LSDAS yet)

Here's my tentative list of schools that I'm applying to: Boalt, Virginia, NYU, Columbia, Fordham, Conn, BC.

Would I be better served with less reaches and more realistic schools?  I know H is out of reach but I may have a targeted LOR there and a friend got in last cycle, so I have to at least give it a shot.  I don't want to sell myself short on the others but it would be a nightmare if I didn't get in anywhere.

Interesting.  That must be why I want to go to HYS.  ;)

If law schools are concerned about their job placement rates (and they should be) then it seems to me that they might appreciate an applicant who has a foot in the door at a top firm.  If a firm is deciding between two candidates from roughly comparable schools, wouldn't they prefer to hire the one that they already know?

Entry level work at a law firm might not prepare you to be a lawyer, but it can be useful for developing contacts that lead to employment.

I'm agnostic and went to a Catholic undergrad.  I was in the minority when it came to religious beliefs, but it isn't the worst thing to be a voice of opposition.  In fact, I think it made my college experience more rewarding.  There are some extremists that might ostracize you but the vast majority of Catholics at my school were at least open minded.  Except for people at either end of the spectrum, I think everyone finds a way to get along.  I can't speak for Notre Dame, but I assume the situation would be similar.

That said, if you really don't want to be the minority then why not look elsewhere?
