(3) I'm going to a big name firm this summer.

Thanks cannotpick for sharing your job experiences, I just had a few questions. 

Approximately what is your firm ranked?  v10? v20? v30? v50?  And if you don't mind me asking, approximately what is your class rank?

Just curious because a friend is applying to Brooklyn now and was curious about job placement.

We don't have the updated rankings, but within the top 5% & v10.

This a great post. BLS is def on my list of contenders. I'm a URM with a 162/3.1 UG and 3.5 G. I'm hoping to see some $$$ from NYC schools. I'm originally from Brooklyn and Brooklyn Heights is top notch in terms of neighboorhoods. I just received some diversity mailings from BLS with a copy of the BLS notes... I have to admit I was impressed with the work BLS did for the hurricane Katrina victims... made me feel all warm and fuzzy about being a lawyer. I stop by the admission office and boy were they friendly... with that said Fordham was pretty friendly to me as well...Cardozo not so much...Columbia was snob central... NYU let's just say I heart NYU... but that because of the LGBT love I feel.

With that said I'm all about BigLAW and I'm heading where every will get me there the smoothest.

Thanks to cannotpick and miss P for all the great insights. ;)

BLS will throw you big money if you play your cards right, ladylegal.  Get a Cardozo acceptance under your belt and work them against each other.  I bet you get in at Fordham as well, but you'll get the most money here.  Plus, it'd be so nice to have some more LGBT folk around.

So LGBT isn't  thriving so much at BLS I take it. Any student orginizations, Functions etc?

No, seriously, there is a very active LGBT student group, and the campus is very queer-friendly.  That doesn't mean I wouldn't like to see some more LGBT ladies around.

We also have very good pizza at our meetings.  And we do dorky things like go bowling together and stuff.
