Don't expect to make 100k+ coming out of USD.  Is it possible?  Absolutely.  However, it'll require great connections or a very high class ranking (i.e. top 10%).  However, there are many well paying jobs for the taking if you perform well enough.  Don't expect a great job if you place in the bottom of your class.  However, that will be no different at PSU or Pepperdine.

I agree, don't expect it.  However, I know plenty who are not in the top 10% making 100k+.  (Likewise, I know some in the top 10% who are unemployed... at some point, the individual makes the difference.)  My grades are not spectacular, and I'll be paid $2400/week this summer.

It's a fun place.. we had a giant section E party (and we're second years!) last week. 

Dude, I've still yet to see that NSX on campus.

I sold it when I moved to La Jolla. :-/  No room at my new condo for it.  Fear not, I'm working on something else. :)

Nice!  I love Preludes.  I've had a few, but never built them.

Here were my money pits.. I miss them too. :(

1) Great, 190
2)  Search Google.  That data is everywhere and common knowledge.

Both of you... sign up for "SDLR/ILJ Write-On" on TWEN.

And then read my post in the FAQ about bad writers getting on... I'm serious in the post!

Haha, will do. Thanks man.

And iS, don't worry about twen until you're here. You can't use it until you're here.

Okay, cool. That makes me feel better. Thanks.

Sorry, I thought you were a 1L!  You can't bribe me then, I'm in charge for selecting the 1Ls.  You'll have to bribe them after we decide who's on the board in March. :)

I guess it's never ocurred to you that doing well on the LSAT is representative of hard work and dillegence in and of itself?

If you said that with less attitude, I'd be inclined to concede a little.

It can show hard work, though its not dispositive.  Some people are naturally better at figuring out who owns the red purse.  Law schools and LSADS have some loose data showing a weak correlation between correctly IDing the how many ways the airplane can be red and law school performance.  No such statistics exist to correlate the blue fish to performance as an attorney. 

This isn't an excuse; we all know how the game is played.  If I wanted into Harvard, I needed to work harder at the LSAT.  I could have done it, but I didn't.  Point taken.  But what you're missing is the 1:1 correlation.  I, and I'd guess the vast majority, didn't work harder on their LSATs because they weren't getting any younger.  At some point, you have to make a stand and go with your numbers.  When you make that stand, it's not about a lack of effort.  It's more about mortality and external time commitments.  (You may have to study for that LSAT, but the mortgage company doesn't care.) 

For some, the LSAT did prove to be an incredible effort and undertaking.  For others, it was a natural predisposition / talent.  The majority fits somewhere in-between.

I do love your car, it's gorgeous. Whoever took all the photos of it (presumably you) is a fantastic photographer.

Thank you!!  You'd make my HS photo teacher proud. :)

Ouch. That was the third revision of the post too. It doesn't sound mean in my head... I blame it on the internet.

All I meant by my post was to show that you made the immediate judgment about people who score high as is made about people who score low. I happened to be holding down two (albeit part-time, crappy) jobs as well as a more-than-full course load while I was studying for the LSAT; it was just the decision that I made to care about it more than about having fun or enjoying myself that semester. I'm not trying to blame anyone for being lazy and "settling" for a T2, by the way.



Now I want to post pictures of my car. But it's a Honda Civic with a 60 year-old building looking a bit rundown in the background, and I would probably embarrass the poor car by sharing.

Fair enough.

For whatever this is worth, I was accepted to T1s Arizona and Davis.
