Yes, I am talking about the DE campus. I was thinking say I end up going there and manage to get in the top 15% of my class or so... would it be worth transferring or do you think I would actually be able to get a job making 80k+ a year? I am somewhat interested in BigLaw or a clerkship so I don't know if Widener should even be in my options...any thoughts?
Thank you for your reply. I am definitely aware that everyone is shooting for the top of the class so I do not by any means think that it is a shoe-in to be up there. I will absolutely try my hardest to get up there, but obviously anything can happen. I guess my question is this... say I was able to overcome the statistics and get in the top 15% of my class...do you think there would be solid job opportunities? Do you think it would be smart to stay at Widener and use my high class rank to help me with my 1L summer opportunities? Or would it be better to get out now and transfer to higher ranked school in the T30-T50 range? Your opinion is definitely appreciated.
I really appreciate your responses and they are definitely helping me out. So my plan is this... I am going to wait for my Feb LSAT and if I don't break the 160 mark I am going to email all of the schools I applied to who I won't get into with a 152 and ask them to change my application to a part-time applicant. I will see where I get accepted from in the PT programs and then evaluate my choices better. What do you think about this? I am applying to mostly local schools in the PA/NJ area so I will most likely stay in this area either way. Do you think attending a part time program, at say, Rutgers or Seton all would be more beneficial to me in the long run that a JD from Widener? Thanks.
