Don't flatter yourself. Your posts are legitimately stupid.



Calm down, woman. As the rejection email from Berkeley said, if it remains your top choice school, you can always apply as a transfer student. Good luck!

let’s draw up a scenario

let’s say the law school without scholarship totaled 250000 after 3 years. 250000 over 10 years, factoring in interest, is 34,500 a year. If i am hired by a private big law firm my salary will be 160000 with a bonus of about 40000 just for the first two years. Then i could expect a raise in salary and bonus. On the federal income tax bracket ill either fall into the 28% bracket or if I am married and my wife has decent job well fall into the 33% bracket. I’ll be or my wife and I will pull in 100,000 after expenses (vacation, food, rent, car, gas, etc.). Obviously this is if everything goes according to plan. i do not want to digress from the main issue at hand. please do not comment on this but do comment on my original question.

Yes! I knew law school was a good investment!

Which law school would be most beneficial (in terms of landing a job in a private firm) if i KNOW that I want to work in SoCal. I do not care about Scholarship money becasue that is all short term. rank best to worst starting from #4 Columbia - #15 UCLA

Thanks for the help
Best,

for all those haters. 3/3 people that i have spoken to that graduated from a top 15 law schools made 200,000 there first year as an associate. im sure if i speak to more lawyers who graduated from a top 15 law school would have similar success stories. those who made fun or are skeptical are either ignorant or didnt work hard enough in law school.

Well, if you're only polling associates at Wachtell, I guess we shouldn't be surprised. Your story success rate will probably continue to be 100%.

1) Nope.
2) T15 isn't a real category (UCLA/USC/Vandy/UT are peer schools). T14 please.

Dude, the salaries/bonuses for people at market paying biglaw firms are quasi-public knowledge. You're not fooling anyone.

i just want to point out for no reason at all that you, for whatever reason, felt the need to capitalize "wachtell, lipton, rosen & katz."

Pretty sure this thread is 100% flame, but I'd say whichever is the cheapest of CCN/Berkeley (unless cost of all 4 is sticker, in which case, it depends on scholarships down the rest of the T14 and possibly USC/UCLA).
