Big Four or Bust?

Postby flat-fifth » Mon Mar 04, 2013 8:21 pm

I'm looking to find a place in California BigLaw, specifically for the many training opportunities that exist. It may sound like a novel idea, but I want to be a great lawyer. I want to attend law school in the state, which points me to Stanford, Berkeley, USC, and UCLA. Is there any hope for CA BigLaw below the top 20?

I'm sure top at Loyola gets it, but it's too much of a long shot to bet on.

I wouldn't feel comfortable with my chances at a lower-ranked school. Heck, I wouldn't even feel comfortable with UCLA/USC.

My LSAT instructor was an unemployed UCLA grad..moved to a smaller market just for the opportunity to find work(no job secured)--and he was top half.
