Transferring / GW-->t14?
« on: November 11, 2007, 07:12:13 PM »
I am currently a 1L at GW. I like GW alot, but I like more the idea of national marketability upon graduation.

What kind of rank would I need to be able to practice anywhere in the country with a degree from GW? Or am I basically confined to the DC area no matter what?

What kind of rank would I need to do this from a T14 school?

What do I have to do grades-wise my first year to have a good chance at transferring to a t14 (specifically, GULC)? A T10?

I've heard that some schools are hostile to transfers. Which schools are particularly bad? Any particularly good/accepting? That whole notion seems absurd to me - I would never look down upon someone if I found out they were at GW because they transferred from Catholic. Rather, I'd congratulate them for showing they had what it took to attend a better school. But anyway, reality is reality and I'd like to know which schools are notorious in this vein in case I have a close decision between two schools.


Thanks.

"that being said, why not go to the school that offers you the most options despite how you do?"

by this you mean gtown part time? i don't know...something seems wrong about going there with the intention of transfering into the full time program. that and it seems too good to be true.

thanks nate.

so top 1/3 would be pretty tough at GW as a 1L?

Transferring / GW and GULC

the goal: graduate from GULC
the options: A) attend GW full time, transfer to GULC full time or B) attend GULC part time, transfer to full time

Weigh the pros and cons of A and B. Which do you prefer?

assume applicant has more than adequate numbers to gain admission at GW full time and GULC part time, but not GULC full time, obviously.

General Board / I don't understand the appeal of "big law"
« on: January 13, 2006, 09:56:13 PM »
the reason i don't see why a "big law" job is so sought after is simply this: you get paid twice as much but you work twice the hours (70-80 hours). so is it not the case that your "wage" (i.e. hourly pay) is the same at a non-biglaw firm?

i understand the potential to make partner, but there's a slim chance doing so in most firms, from what i've heard. am i missing something?

Transferring / Transferring and Employers

I've heard that a firm's recruiting is largely dictated by students' 1L grades. What does this mean for those of us who are transferring up after our first year? Thanks.

the song "California" by Wax...had that guy running down the street on fire in slow motion.  If only I could find a link...
