I know I have posted this a couple times, but the decision needs to be made tonight.
Note: This current decision does not account for the T6, which will be a later decision, but for now, I HAVE to make this choice.
T50 Dc region school
highest grade 2 classes
Pros: get to keep grades, Law Rev
Cons: no prestige in long term. Fall OCI list (30 large firms?)
Pros: More prestige
Cons: lost previous school's grades(Does this mean GULC will be more pressure and work???), Law Rev, LOTTERY SYSTEM (instead of basically everyone who comes to AU interviewing me, I only get around 10-15.
PLEASE HELP THIS DECISION IS CRUSHING ME.
A lot of people base the decision on whether or not to transfer on their opportunities at Fall OCI. The consensus seems to be transfer from the t50. My decision invovles a t50 to gulc. GULC does a lottery and you end up with about 8-10 interviews from the lottery. At my t50, the firms prescreen. But since most big firms in the area (schools are in the same area) go to the t50, wouldn't they always pick the student in the top of the class and on law review? If that is true, why is it better to go to a school with a lottery system when you will only get 10 interviews, while you can get 50 at the t50? Thanks for any advice.

I transferred to Georgetown last year and I live in an apartment building called Senate Square, which is right behind Union Station. It is within walking distance to the law school and is basically brand new. It's a bit pricey, but it does allow pets. I believe you can get a 1br for somewhere in the $1700/month range right now (with specials, etc.). The rent is about the same as Mass Court, but it's quite a bit nicer. My wife and I looked at Mass Court and weren't impressed at all.
Senate Square is AWESOME. I could not get my roomates to move there because the area is kind of up and coming and sketchy. But wow what a nice apartment building.
The move is a no issue. Im asking simply about academics. Is it stupid to give up law review and top of the class (or near the top depending on how this semester goes) for gtown if I want to work in DC?
I just got into GULC and I attend a top 50 school. I am top of my class right now but who knows what will happen this semester. I do not really want to apply to other schools so my question is this:
I am top of my class at the top 50 AND on Law Review. In terms of Fall OCI and getting a solid SA position, what looks better? The top 50 school on law review OR my grades with the top 50 school and law review ON MY RESUME and attending GULC. Any advice would be appreciated. I want to work in DC.
