Where would you go? Temple / American / Richmond

Postby ps1187 » Mon Mar 14, 2011 12:23 pm

So these appear to be my 3 choices at the moment.
Stats are pretty terrible - GPA just above 3.0, LSAT just above 160.

Exhausted all retakes. Pretty frustrated at current job, delaying a few years not an option.

Family will bankroll.


Ultimately, would like to have midlaw. Would also love to have the chance to dream about biglaw.

ZERO interest in gov work. Public interest might be ok.

STICKER at Temple (oos) and American. Judging by last year's LSN data, should be ~10k/yr at Richmond (will find out this week).

Where would you go, and why?

Where do you want to live/work?

If Philly, go to Temple

If DC, go to American

If Richmond, go to Richmond.

Do you have any savings? If not, I would reconsider going to law school. You will rack up a lot of debt going to these schools at sticker, and may not end up with the means to pay it off.

Savings don't matter if his family will bankroll, nor will future debt. To the OP - just choose what city you'd like to work in and go there. From my limited understanding, American has alot more competition in DC than Temple has in Philly. I don't know diddly poo about Richmond.

If you think you are frustrated at your current job, these schools will not become bastions of opportunity. I would look at another program altogether like business or accounting.
