153 and 2.63?! seriously?
I know this is said on the board way to much, and I generally believe if you want to be a lawyer badly you can suck up the excess debt (to a degree) but...TJ is not really a school you should consider. I have lived in San Diego a number of years and I have meet 0 successful attorney's from the school. Its rep in San Diego is abysmal. If you are desperate to go to a law school in sd, try to raise your lsat a bit and go to Cal Western.
Wow, well maybe someone who has interacted with people in SD legal market might have a better idea of the rep of a school like TJ than you . It is impressive that you drove by the school (near the Old town area btw) and you know feel that you can comment on the validity of my advice...Besides the fact the DA went to Thomas Jefferson, the repuatation in San Diego of the school is absolutely abysmal. Maybe, just maybe, that might be useful information to prospective law students... If you are going to 4th tier in San Diego, make sure it is Cal Western. No, I'm not a Cal Western troll (I'm going to Davis), but it at least has a higher respect than its US News Ranking. Of course this is the internet and people can take my post at what it's worth, but I strongly suggest anyone going to TJ to talk to 3l about their job prospects. The whole point of this board is to give advice. I also dont get why you're knocking down people who have actually interacted with a number of lawyers in the San Diego legal market. I'm sorry I haven't been able to survey EVERY lawyer for the purposes of posting on the internet, but it should be known the prospects for students in this school are only in San Diego. I DARE you to find a successfull attorney in San Diego that is not the DA that sees Thomas Jefferson as a solid school. Of course there are bound to be 1 or 2 successful attorneys from anywhere, but a VAST MAJORITY of grads are not going to be such a position. Also, Going to a law school with the intent to transfer is not even close to as easy when comparing transfering from Undergrad to Undergrad. I can't believe your spewing such garbage. If you think this is a good idea, I challenge you to talk to any t1/t2 adcomm and ask what they think of your transfer theory. You knock OL advice yet you apparently know very little of the law school process. Transfering from a bottom forth tier to a T2 is doable, but I highly doubt you are in a position to know the prospects for this. For anyone who is seriously considering this, look at the numbers on the Yahoo transfer apps group to get a look at what you're in for. I'm gland you know ONE person who went to the said school and transfered out...wow , you must be an expert on law school job prospects in the San Diego area then...and if you're not, maybe you should just stay out of this thread since you've obviously done NO reserach on the said school.
