WUSTL $$$ Vs. NU

Postby lushka » Mon Mar 14, 2011 9:21 pm

Shooting for big law, and would like to lateral out to something sports and entertainment related after a few years... So first of all do I go an extra 130K in debt to go to NU? secondly is it better for something sports and entertainment related or does that not matter anymore after working a few years in big law? Lastly, where would you most likely have to rank in your class from Wash U in order to trasnfer to a T10 school...

Thanks!!

I think the general rule of thumb is to not attend any law school with the intention of transferring. I know that's not exactly what you're asking here, but I don't know where you'd have to be to transfer. Anyways, WashU is a good school, there's a shit load of threads bouncing around that are all about WashU. I don't know if you've been to Chicago or STL, but they are two very different cities and I would encourage you to visit both before making your final decision.

Go to NU debt will be paid off. I recently met with an established Ent lawyer and he told me to get Big law exp if you can doing contracts and building reputation. You are only an Ent/Sports lawyer when you have clients. And don't think about transferring

If you're biglaw or bust you have to take NU.
