First of all, I said "likely", and that is true. Second of all, how about you back that statement up with some numbers? I still stand by the statement that people outside of the top 50% at non-top 15 schools "likely" aren't going big law. Bottom line.
Sorry, I just have to respond to your comment noting that UGA is "out of the way." UGA places the most law students in biglaw in Atlanta than any other law school, and I don't think its close. Nearly every one of my friends in the top 1/3 had a good shot at big law and either got an offer, or at least had multiple shots at it. If you aren't in the top 1/3 - 1/2 at any schools outside of the top 15, you likely aren't going biglaw. So the point: UGA is a bad example of a school that doesn't place well in biglaw, and while it is an hour from ATL, it certainly isn't "out of the way" in terms of getting a job.
I see what you're saying, I just don't think UGA is as good an example as Colorado or Alabama b/c it basically functions as though it is in Atlanta in terms of employment. And of course you have the advantage of not paying $10 a beer, but you already know that well if you went to undergrad here.
DOCLAW, what city do you go to school in? And how did you manage to get a job? ANy advice? Does anyone know if it is possible to get a federal clerkship coming from a t2, do most federal judges (like some firms) simply only take canidates from certain schools?
BUT Hofstra has a brand new Dean (who is in fact my Torts prof) and he has already started the improvement process. I actually am a part of it, because I among many of my classmates, are the recruits he wanted to get so much.
