Games are the most learnable, but you should probably set more realistic goals.
Something smells fishy to me (Besides the streets of New Orleans). I work in an NYC V15 firm, and Tulane seems to be a very respected program at my firm. Today, I talked to an attorney who suggested I go to Tulane over Fordham, for example. They are rated No. 2 nationally in graduate earnings potential by USNWR. They are an expensive school, but very generous with scholarships for people with decent numbers. They are one of the few schools in that range that places nationally.
I will make the logical assumption that one of the reasons for their low USNWR rating is a result of their low LSAT and GPA cutoffs. But is that it? Why does Iowa, for example, rank higher than Tulane?
Mind sharing which firm? (I live in Chicago, so naturally curious)
I would rather not share my firm, but I can say that its a V100/V50 firm. I was very happy to get a slot, especially after the salary wars. (see abovethelaw.com)
As for choosing, I chose BC over GW, Vandy, Texas etc. It was a personal preference. I wanted the top school for BIGLAW placement I could get outside of the T14 (which I was really hoping for off the waitlist). I wanted to work in the Northeast at first, which is why I chose BC. If I had wanted the South, I probaby would have chosen Vandy and if I had wanted the midwest, I would have chosen ND. But I wanted the NEast, so BC was the best option (let me make clear that if NYC was my top priority, I would have attended Fordham). But with GW/BC/BU/Fordham as options, I love studying in Boston. I cannot complain; it does not get better than Boston as far as a great place to go to Law School. I have had a GREAT experience. I wish law school was 4 years.
