Where should I go next fall? / Re: Florida Coastal School of Law
« on: January 25, 2010, 03:41:48 PM »
There were over ten students in his class who got hired by GS.  They usually don't hire JDs but they made it clear that the name Florida Costal meant something to them.

You are absolutely full of sh*t. I mean claiming one guy from that school got hired by GS is enough of a lie, but some people might actually be dumb enough to believe it. No one is dumb enough to believe 10 students from florida coastal got hired by GS lol. GS doesnt even hire 10 jds from harvard each year..

Just because things worked out poorly for you doesn't mean there's anything wrong with the school.  [i]My friend went to Florida Costal.  He finished in the middle of his class and was hired as an investment banker at Goldman Sachs.  He now make half a million dollars a year.[/i]  His situation is by no means unique.  If you can't get a job as a lawyer, the name Florida Costal is famous enough to look great on a resume.  

I call BS, give me his name. I worked for GS and still have access to their company wide directoy.

Contract2008 why do you female dog so much about SMU every chance you get? If you don't think its worth it, then leave and do something else. I was just about ready to leave after the first semester cuz law kinda bores me but I'm probably gonna stick it out after seeing my grades. Why anyone would come online and diss their own school every chance they get is beyond me.

I like how you assume how much I make.  That's funny.  Not accurate...and funny.
Like I said, talk to me when you actually know something.  Graduate, pass the bar, get a job.  Until then, you're clueless, and your posts show it.By the way, I didn't graduate first in my class.  I was 7th.

Several weeks ago, I met a UM law alum who moved to Knoxville, TN.  I was there for a deposition, and we ended up sitting next to each other at a bar my first evening in town.  His views on where he would have gone to school were much different sitting at that bar than when he went into school as a 1L. 

I've had a job. Worked for a company named Goldman Sachs, you might have heard of them. LOL at some attorney for a no name law firm telling me to get a job.

... You left GS to go to law school? At SMU?

First time being back on this site since law school started. Yea, I left GS to go to SMU. Wanted to take a shot a working in sports since that is what I'm really interested in. If things don't work out I'd go back to GS before taking a no name small firm job like the guy above lol.

What's GS?

Some lady with no high school diploma is working for Goldman Sachs as a cleaning lady. Your statement above means nothing with details as to what you did at Goldman Sachs. 

You got me there, I was just the janitor at Goldman!!! I just love being associated with them  ::)

In general, a lot of pre-laws and even people in law school have woefully unrealistic salary expectations.

And work expectations. I look forward to talking to another group of people next year that are going to make $160k doing international/sports law.

If you're refering to me, neither one of those are my goals.. I want to be a sports agent..

In my opinion, there are perhaps 10-15 law schools that are maybe worth taking out big loans for. Depending on the individual situation, it may not even be worth it for a particular person to take out those loans at one of those 10-15 schools. This is why I always tell people to consider their in-state school. Or obtain residency somewhere, even it means getting a job for a few years before going to law school.

hurricane,

Good luck with sports law. The field is very small and very competitive. I took a class with an adjunct prof who works on big player contracts, stadium deals, etc. He also brought in one of his colleagues as a guest speaker and they spoke about how they got into the field. Both of them had gone to top ten law schools, and worked as big firm lawyers and corp counsel for several years before settling into the work they do now.

I don't know anything about your connections, but I do know that most peoples' connections are not as good as they think. You may find yourself doing very different work than you intended for a lot less money.

I could live with that, as long as I have a shot at my goals. What I couldn't live is going to a school where finishing #1 in my class gives me a $50,000 job and finishing in the middle makes me jobless.
