Job Prospects at T-14 schools and Texas

Postby wdmj » Wed Jan 12, 2011 4:34 pm

What sort of cutoffs do firms use to hire at the following schools:

Chicago
Virginia
Texas

Is there a huge advantage at Chicago than at the other two schools? What about the rest of the T-14 schools? Are the opportunities at other schools about the same besides geographic regions?

Firms vary. Do you mean what is the lowest you can be and still have a reasonable shot at biglaw? Do you mean what grade cutoff V10's use? V100's? What?

Also, just because you are above the cutoff doesn't necessarily mean your grades give you a chance.

If you want to work in Texas and aren't from there, only UT (and other TX schools) is going to give you a shot in hell at working there. I'd say UChi has a measurable advantage over UVa in terms of firm hiring overall.
