Where to go for Government

Where to go for Government
« on: June 18, 2004, 06:40:43 AM »
Hey, I am going to be a Senior.  I'm majoring in PoliSci and am looking to go to law school.  I want to get involved in politics and work with the government.  What law schools (tier 1 or 2) have the best programs for government work such as working on a campaign.  I can't find information on it anywhere.

THanks

heh.  Okay well Georgetown might be out of range of my 3.6 gpa and estimated 160-165 lsat (we'll find out on the 6th).  Any schools that aren't quite so insane to get in to?

uh... i think if he says georgetown is out of his league, then its a safe bet harvard is too.

if you want a government job, go to syracuse and get a joint JD/MPA or JD/MPP. syracuse's public policy school is ranked number one and their law school is easier than hell to get into.
