UGA for Atlanta Clerkship?

Postby DaveBear07 » Fri Dec 31, 2010 1:56 pm

So I recieved my scholarship offer from UGA yesterday, and it will only cost me $25k total in tuition to attend. If my goal is to clerk in Atlanta, how does this offer compare to Vanderbilt or Duke? I'd also like to be able to do quality public interest work as soon as possible as well. Thanks in advance.

$25,000 per year tuition & fees ? Or $25,000 over three years for tuition & fees ? Have you been accepted to Duke & Vanderbilt at sticker ?

25k total tuition for the whole three years. And yes, I have. I'm confident though, per LSN, that I have a good shot at $ from both Vandy and Duke. But looking at LawClerkAddict it looks like Duke is the best at putting people into the 11th circuit...

Georgia is a very strong regional law school with exceptional US Supreme Court placement, but Duke commands national attention. I cannot offer an answer (because I don't know your financial situation) other than to point out the obvious that you are doing quite well in this admissions cycle.

P.S. With your numbers (171 LSAT & 3.8 GPA) it is interesting that you aren't considering higher ranked law schools.

Unfortunately I haven't been accepted to any higher ranked law schools yet. Haha.

If you want a clerkship of any sort, tcr is rock law school grades, get on some sort of journal, and build good contacts. UGA for Atlanta is a good bet at that price for sure though. If you get some money at Duke or Vandy though (enough to keep total cost under 100k) I'd take them over UGA.
