Re: 3.99 Engineering GPA, but 168 GRE to LSAT conversion--Chance Me

Thanks for the update, it's a helpful data point in a world where we have no data on GRE applicants. Let us know which schools you get into/scholarships if you can, that'd be awesome.

^ which school did you go to? how much preftige factor in career say hys vs ccn?

Re: Dropping Out and Reapplying

There aren't many (any?) fed clerkship positions you can get from Harvard median that you can't get from CCN median. Maybe the H name goes further in District of Iowa or something? Although I wouldn't be surprised if the Chicago median guy has an edge over H in District of Iowa. I think it's Chicago...

S&C if they think it's an opportunity to prestige grab, Skadden if it wants to get back at all the "Not a real V5"ers, maybe Debevoise to boost its Vault ranking after seeing Milbank jump like 15 spots?

Re: Government to a boutique litigation firm in CA?

FWIW state trial practice is quite different from practice in federal courts, as I'm sure you're aware, so your trial work experience isn't going to pull as much weight as you think, especially at boutiques that are 95% former fed clerks.

How is this TTT firm even prestigious? They pay below market, they're not even relatively selective, and it sounds like they're filled with crazy.

Is it just because they throw tons of money at fed soc SCOTUS clerks?

Interesting choice to approach asking questions on a forum like cross examination.

1.) No
2.) No
3.) No
4.) Eh... since you asked the question as an absolute, no.
5.) No
6.) Yes
7.) Yes
8.) Yes
9.) Yes
10.) Don't know

Re: Money v Name... UF, Chi, and NYU

duke/Chicago at sticker are no-go when you have 25k/year at NYU or UVA. If you want corp/IP, do NYU.

If you have 25k everywhere, I'd say Chicago only because of lower CoL = lower debt.

It's not impossible, but fortunately for you, you don't even really need to think about this until after your first year of law school. You really don't need to think about electives until you're picking them at the end of your first year of law school. Try to get as high a GPA/LSAT as possible. Tha...

Also, Northwestern just released their JD-MBA numbers separately, and it's by far the largest percentage of BL folks in that crowd in at least 8 years (21/27 in 100+ firms). So, for the first time in a long time (maybe ever), NU's BL+FC percentage actually dropped when you remove the JD-MBA's from ...
