Choosing the Right Law School / Re: W&L 1L Taking Questions
« on: February 25, 2008, 08:38:14 PM »
How does W&L place in public interest/prosecutor/PD offices in Virginia?  Is it well connected with state government?

If I don't make the biglaw cutoff I'll be looking for public interest sort of jobs, so that's why I'm curious.

I've often heard that GW does much better with biglaw than W&L, and statistics back that up, but GW also has a huge number of IP people.  If you subtract the IP people and then subtract the people at W&L who want to go back to their smallish Southern hometowns, W&L could very well be even with GW at many NYC/DC firms.  At least I hope.

I think for that purpose working for some guys who are active in local real estate would be a lot more helpful, and cheaper.

But I believe that if you can hit a 167 in practice, you can hit a 170 in practice too.  It took me a while to get my stride with the LSAT.

Why do you want a JD/MBA?  There's not much use for it.

SMU places in Dallas about as well as a 20-25 school would in its own market.

I bet you can do better on the LSAT.

Regardless of what you do for a living now, I can almost guarantee you that your salary will NOT go up if you go to any of these schools.  Since you'll have sizable debt at any of these, your net worth will assuredly go down.

Exactly what he said.  If you are set on making this decision, though, SMU is a million times better.

IU and Wisconsin are pretty much the same school, it's just a matter of which state you prefer.  I would assume IU-B shares Indy "biglaw" with IU-Indy much the same as Wisconsin shares Milwaukee with Marquette.

Thanks.  That's basically what I thought.

Yeah, a little WE, but not after school.  I took a break for a while in between being a bad college student.  It really baffles me how they are going to look at my transcript and not just assume I'm schizo/bipolar/retarded.

I'm about to have an interview.  What should I say?

This is why I want to go W&L.  I know job prospects are better out of GW, but if I were making that decision, I also have to think that I would actually want to be happy for the 3 years I'm in school.  Oh well.
