Gov't Work

Postby whereskyle » Mon Mar 11, 2013 11:30 am

I want to be a lawyer, because I want to be involved in gov't. I've been admitted to uva at sticker, but i don't want biglaw. I'm interested in regulation, administrative law, legislation, constitutional theory, political negotiation, and the political process. I would be happy working a lower level hill job. I had my eye on article III clerkships and thus applied only to uva and up this cycle. Thus far uva is the only acceptance with no money. I have a 170, no gpa, but great recs from a small public honors college, plus a ton of writing experience, legal and otherwise. I simply don't want biglaw, nor the debt. Do you all think I have a decent shot at EDing to GWU? Is such a route absolutely brainless or potentially advisable for someone who wants a family life and a supporting role in the gov't or public interest organization? Thanks, all. You all are the best.

Would anyone take uva at sticker with the primary goal of government work?

Look up and compare T14 schools' LRAP programs. Some make govt a truly awesome option, while some make it more just survivable.
