GA State for ATL BigLawl

Postby larryjonesjr » Wed Jul 04, 2012 1:48 am

Bros,

Need someone to tell me that attending GA State for free (read: no debt w/ GI Bill and investments) isn't turrible and that I can be one of the snowflakes that gets ATL biglaw. I'm WL at UGA/Emory and have taken the LSAT thrice.

Someone console my TT self.

Don't count on biglaw from there at all. If you are counting on biglaw then go to HYS (or risk it at CCN). But UGA for free (you are talking UGA right and not some other GA school?) is a good deal and probably worth it. Even if not big law you can probably get something decent if you do reasonably well imo, and you will have low debt. But enjoy staying in GA after graduating for sure.

He's talking about Georgia State University not UGA

Top 10% to have a shot. Fight to get into UGA or Emory and don't be fooled by Emory trolls, they're peers for ATL big law hiring.
