Ha ha. You know what I meant. At any law school you go to, your employment prospects won't be great if you just slack off and end up low in the class rank.I was saying that Wash&Lee may not have the same pull as USC or UCLA, but if he's in the top 20% of the class I would think he'd be fine in California. I didn't mean to imply it will be easy to be in the top 20%, but I would think that would be enough.Andrea
I cracked up when i heard a current 1L tell my roommate at the Mirage Saturday night "you need to come here cause the guys are tools".
Also, can anyone help me from a CA perspective. Cause i plan on coming back here to work. They kept saying how this guy Klinedinst can hook you up easy with a job. But the guy has a starting salary of 80K! Here in LA, thats less than out of work homeless beggars make. I made almost that much working just out of college!!!Will i be able to compete against SC and UCLA kids for the standard 125K jobs out here.

I'd imagine top 25 to 50 percent should be okay.
thast kind of my worry too- except philly area instead of cal (i want to stay in the northeast after school)
