It led me to a neighborhood where I feared for my life (the sandwich was served through a rotating window from behind bulletproof glass), and the crabcake itself ended up being a disappointment. I think this is relevant for anyone looking at Gtown.
hahahaha +1, definitely relevant
(i thought i had submitted this post but i don't see it so i'm re-posting): however tempting it sounds to be debt free after law school, i think i'm going to have to rule out W&L...i've just always been set on studying law in DC and W&L's location is just not my forte. i like networking and going out to various events that take place in the DC area and by going to W&L i definitely feel as though i would be limiting myself in that sense.
In regards to GULC being BigLaw or bust, i have what's probably a stupid question: is all NLJ250 necessarily BigLaw? Or are the smaller firms in NLJ250 different? Essentially, I'm curious about the lifestyles because i've heard horror stories of BigLaw life and even though I may not want that, I still like the idea of working for at least a decent-sized law firm
