-If you are an in-state resident for one of the schools, let me know which oneAlaska So.... None
-If your parents are paying for a % of your law school, explain that. Be sure to include whether or not you care about your parent's spending excess money.No Assistance forthcoming, 36k in the hole from undergrad
-Let me know what you are like socially and what type things you enjoy Friendly and social but past my paryting days, very outdoorsy, into winter sports, nature photography etc.
-Where you want to practice, and what kind of law you want to practice Want to practice in Chicago, Minneapolis or Milwaukee areas. Want to go the clerkship route, weigh my options, and either take a job or hang a sign based on financial considerations.
-Any other notably relevant information Skadden partner in the family(unspoken expectations). Fiancee that is very against the long hours/big money route. Idea of being a small town lawyer does not disgust me. Oh and I have never lived anywhere that wasn't either in the mountains or on the ocean.
I know you said you are done decider and I see the request are stacking up, but any sage advice is welcome, thanks
I thought PLS was pretty helpful. Mainly the prepping part. However, it is pretty pointless to do before law school in my opinion. I would just take the advice on getting the supplements and do them during the semester. That is what I did and ended up #1 in my class after first semester.
Hopefully I've gotten mine in before the deadline
Debating between Fordham, Wake Forest and USF
-If you are an in-state resident for one of the schools, let me know which one Doesn't matter for any of the schools
-If your parents are paying for a % of your law school, explain that. Be sure to include whether or not you care about your parent's spending excess money. Parents will pay for my housing and bills no matter where I go. If I go to USF they will pay the rest of the tuition for USF. If I go to Fordham they will pay for as much as they can, but I'll still have at least $20,000 in debt a year.
-Let me know what you are like socially and what type things you enjoy Easy going can make friends anywhere, not afraid to move some place by myself and pretty independent.
-Where you want to practice, and what kind of law you want to practice (possible options include biglaw, midlaw, small firm law, public interest, clerking, government and business) I know I eventually want to practice in SF (my family is from the Bay Area) after I graduate, but I'm completely ok with working where I graduate law school from to build my resume. Biglaw is only for me if I have loans to pay off, other than that I'm happy with a mid-size job. Just really want/need to make at least $70K or $80K when I graduate.
-Any other notably relevant information I'm scared of going into debt. I've had some people tell me it's best to go to USF because of the networking opportunities (and my family has more connections in the Bay Area), but I'm become a rankings whore since reading forums. I really just want to go someplace where I'll get a good job and be happy.
