Kilroy, if you don't mind sharing, what were your stats? (LSAT/UGPA) Maybe innate ability comes into play more than we realize.

You had a 178 and went to a Tier 3 school? Was this a financial consideration? It seems like you would be WELL above their LSAT range...

It's difficult to estimate your chances without an LSAT score. You'll find lots of stories on the Pre-Law board about "splitters" (people with low GPA's and high LSAT's) who do okay in terms of law school admission. Perhaps the best place to begin would be to take the LSAT and see how you do (or at least take a diagnostic and a couple of practice tests).

Um, there's someone there who went to my school too (T80-something). That's why you shouldn't listen to people who say you'll never get a big law job if you're not at a T14 school...

I enjoy the Baltimore area, although it has a high crime rate and a couple of shady areas. I'm a big fan of DC too.

I doubt it's her looks.  She probably has connections.  You shouldn't be suprised.  You should be focused on out performing them.  Don't believe your dealing with a dumb blond

Seconded - people sometimes think I'm a dumb blonde, and it puts me at a great advantage :-)

This will probably make me sound dumb, but can someone please define black letter law? It's a phrase that's thrown around a lot on LSD, and while I have a vague idea of what it means, I'd like to be sure that I'm interpreting all these responses as they're intended.

Congrats to both of you - that's impressive. Do those of you with high LSAT scores (for your law schools) find any correlation to your level of success in law school? Or once you get in, does the LSAT prove not to be much of a predictor?

Job Search / Re: 1L Summer from a 2L Summer Firms Hiring Perspective

This is slightly off-topic, but how does spending your 1L summer abroad affect 2L summer jobs? Does anyone ever do an abroad program for the first month and some kind of internship for the last 2 months, or vice versa?
