Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Where to apply???
« on: July 24, 2005, 06:03:22 PM »
You should be looking at strictly top 25 and top 14's in my opinion..that 173 will take you a long ways.

Absolutely.  Cover the entire T-14 and then hit up some T-25s for safeties.  If you are feeling that nervous, at most apply to one lower tier 1 for peace of mind.


I don't know why people are still arguing with hylas at this point.  It seems to me that he is making perfect sense.  He isn't saying every law grad, or even every top tier grad, but rather that attending LS in the upper part of the top tier should reasonably give one a shot at a 6 figure job.  I guess I am missing what is so far fetched about this statement.

Excluding HYS, I would say top 1/3 to 1/2 (depending on the school) would place a law grad in a very competitive position for a variety of positions they might like...BIGLAW included. I think it is very reasonable for someone attending Fordham to believe they have a good shot at a 6 figure BIGLAW job.  Not for certain, but with much greater confidence than perhaps at other schools.

After reading this thread for awhile...

I really think the school's prestige matters when one talks about starting salaries.  To lump all LS grads into one group is sort of nieve. It would seem to me that the job prospects (BIGLAW or public) vary greatly by school.

lol siehead. It is ironic that even with my new found peace of mind, I still religiously check the wait list section. Good luck at USC.

billmcbain...I am not withdrawing as of yet, but sooner or later I will...(my subconscious holding out for a 12th hour miracle).

I have given up on the wait list miracle myself.  I've signed a lease on a place in Boston, and I am feeling very good about attending BC. It is a wonderful feeling having some certainty for the fall.

I received a wait list update email on the 1st of July.  Almost exact same wording as the last about there not being any available seats at this time.  Next update set for July 29th.

Congrats! Definitely a good problem to have at this point. 

I am not going to weigh in on your choice because...well I'm really biased. Good luck with your choice though, keep us posted.

Received the letter today, and I have to say it was very kind and considerate.  Nice to finally have some closure on the subject.

haha small world.  I'm attending BC as well and I'll be looking at places this coming week as well.
