Law School Applications / Re: J.D. Worthless if not practicing law?

Have you considered working for the FBI?

I don't think a JD is required anymore, but I'm sure it helps a lot

Getting a job there is really hard, something like a 0.1% acceptance rate, from what I've heard

Mmm I take that as a "no?"

Disappointing :(

Thanks for the links, but I already knew about those websites.

Is the info available in a more disgestable form?

For example they have the info for Cravath, Swaine & Moore but it would be a painstaking process to get consolidate this info for multiple law firms

Do they have tables or graphs or anything?

There's no type of person that law school is "for" or "isn't for"

If you want to pursue a career in 'the law,' then go for it.

Maybe you won't graduate at the top of your class (although don't rule it out either ;)), but who cares? 

If you have a reason for becomming a lawyer other than the proverbial paycheck (which, for a lot of lawyers, is more of a myth than anything else), then go for it.  No doubt about it.

No you're right, for some reason my radar missed U of So Cal, it's really good, and I have a good chance of getting in there

I've seen a school advertise that it has identical twins enrolled.. I can't remember if it was a med school or a law school, though

Anyway, don't split up more than half of them, if any at all

Hey I was just thinking about BU vs Notre Dame -- why do you prefer BU?

Yeah all 3 of my teachers at princeton review got high 170s or 180s, and one of them is an incredible teacher (incidentally he's had 3 180s, trains other princeton review teachers, and is writing a book for the princeton review), one is a pretty good teacher, and one is not a good one, although he did teach me a lot

So, try to ask people current or previous students in your area who they had as teachers and what they thought about them

Also if test masters only gives 4 practice tests, IMO you should really take the initiative to get some extra times practice tests in, at least an extra 4 more.. this was advice I got from one of my teachers, and I think it's really helped me

Some of us in my PR class have been going to the make-up diagnostic tests (if you miss it on saturday, you can make it up on sunday), and taking extra proctored tests

According to the annotations on the leiter rankings, Martindale-Hubbell has info on where lawyers at specific firms went to law school..

Does anyone know where to find this info?
