Gtown v Cornell for Biglaw

Postby stabiloboss » Thu Apr 12, 2012 5:17 pm

Just wanted to know whether there is a significant difference between the two shooting for biglaw or bust? I checked the stats, and am more impressed that Gtown sent close to 200 ppl to biglaw, wouldn't that signify more/better alumni connections? Although Cornell's percentage stands higher...

Does this decision boil down to personal preferences or is there enough difference to justify Cornell?

Percentage is what matters, not numbers. 10 billion people go to GULC. If Georgetown's larger alumni base was really a huge factor, then why wouldn't their percentage be higher?

Perhaps before. But entry level hiring in fed gov is basically non existent right now.
