Years ago I used to post on this board prior to making my law school decision and during law school and just thought an update would be nice.
I am writing this for anyone scared or uncertain about law school and to give an honest first hand account of my experience.
The post below was made after my 1L grades were released and I was satisfied then and am satisfied years later.
I finished in the top quarter of my class and a little better than that not top 10% and not outside of the top 20% so if anyone cares they can make a guess, I was involved in mock-trial, on a journal, etc.
The day after graduation I did not have a job offer, because like everyone else I had to study for the bar exam. Firms, etc were interested, but they all said let us know what happens with the bar.
I took the bar and passed first time, but it was terrifying the day after I got my results I was offered 3 jobs none of, which made me a millionaire overnight and I actually accepted the lower paying one, because it was something I wanted to do. After a few years I changed jobs to make a bit more money, which was not that hard to do, but I had to work for it. I certainly felt scared that I would fail the bar, never get a job, etc during law school and the bar exam. I was also lucky to get a job right after results were released several of my friends did not get offers for a few more months.
The point of this is to give a brief and honest opinion about attending GGU or any other law school. I was clearly an above average student at GGU, which is a marginal ABA school reputation wise at best. However, the professors, programs, etc were great and I loved the experience. I would choose GGU again if I had to, but I know there were some disappointed students.
I was a solid student, but I did not have a job at graduation and neither did the majority of my friends at Hastings or USF, but as far as I know everyone that took the bar and passed has gone on to obtain legal employment, but it was not easy.
So to anyone reading about GGU or considering attending any school that is not Harvard you can get a job as a lawyer they exist, but GGU or these other schools will not pass the bar for you or result in employers saying wow he was the 38th best student at X school, we need to find a way to hire him/her. That will not happen either.
In summary use common sense when applying to law school. I feel the amount of misinformation regarding law school is overwhelming, but common sense goes a long way.
GGU and schools of its elk do not guarantee success or failure.
