HYPO: WUSTL ($), UGA ($), SMU ($$), or American.

Postby StateSchoolSplitter » Fri Jul 15, 2011 7:29 am

Strong desire to clerk after graduation. Interest in BIGLAW but not having that stress would be just fine in my book (but without the stress of not having a job at all, either).

Desired markets, in order of preference:

1. New York City
2. Washington, D.C.
3. Chicago
3. TIE: Dallas, Atlanta
5. St. Louis

Which school makes the most sense in my situation? UGA's clerkship numbers are impressive (11% Article III)...WUSTL is arguably the best school I'm considering...New York is my preferred market but D.C. is a close second...SMU has historically offered the most money to applicants like me.

Sure. This is just a thought experiment, though.

Do you at least have an LSAT score?

Yes - 169. You can infer a lot from my username ;-)

You'll probably get at least $20K/year from WUSTL, possibly more, depending on just how much of a splitter you are.

I don't really understand why in various threads you've said you have an actual LSAT score between 168 and 172. Those differences can have a huge impact on your cycle. What is your actual highest LSAT score?
