Remember what you thought of the people on student council? This is just like that. There are other, better resume builders around.
I'm choosing which firms to bid on for upcoming on-campus interviews, so a little advice on what firm is a "reach" and what is a "safety" would be much appreciated. Ranges of Vault rankings would probably be most helpful. I'm planning on staying in DC.
We don't hear about journals for another couple weeks. I'm betting my GPA puts me at about the top 20-25%, although I only know it's between 16-35% for sure. Also, I switched from PT to FT, do you think that will affect anything? Thanks!
Think again, bud. Rumor is it's tomorrow.
As someone who is in the "working poor" class, be aware that the whole process can be expensive. The LSAT, applications, visits, moving, housing for the first month, etc. Try to find the cheapest options for each stage (fee waivers, etc.) or it can really hurt.
I feel like a complete a$$ after making fun of everyone here, and then getting kicked out of lawschool for poor performance.

I was waiting for this one. Glad I wasn't disappointed.
I concur. Most employers doing GW OCI know the system, so they ask for top 15%, top third and top half - aka, the only things it's possible to figure out. Btw, as far as I know the curve is still at 3.0, maybe a little more, but not over 3.1. If some employer at an outside job fair asks for "top 25%" or something, just explain the system, and I'm pretty sure they won't care if you're top 35% instead of 25%. If you are just trying to figure out whether you're at 4% vs. 6%, go away.
Curve's actually a 3.25
