Hey all,I just got back from a session at my school discussing opportunities in public interest. At one point the rep from the career office said that the well known organizations such as ACLU, Sierra Club etc. are reserved only for folks who come from a top school. I am at a Tier Two. Are my dreams of working for the ACLU over unless I can transfer up? Please, someone tell me they know someone from a Tier Two who is working at a large Public Interest organization!!!Thank you!
public interest positions are often more competitive than the biglaw jobs. there are plenty of students at top law schools that are willing to make under $40k a year to fight for a cause.
