First, It's about 40%, not 30% and secondly a lot of grads making that money are part-timers who are GS-13s or higher and are using the law degree as a "government MBA" in order to get into management. These people default into 100k/yr jobs, and are not numbers you should be looking at in making decisions.

Looks a lot closer to 30% than 40% to me. However, the rest of what you're writing is interesting. They are saying that all of that 50% is in the private sector though. Are the people you are talking about considered to be in the private sector or the public sector?


Big law is more than the NLJ250.

Yes, I know, and I mentioned that earlier. So you think the other 20% is all other big law?


No I'm stating it because you argued with twenty about it being closer to 30 than 40, when the number is 39.1%.

Five things to keep in mind:
A) I literally gave you the best advice you could possibly get in this situation.
B) I was dead on with the 166 call. Am I good or what?
C) You're being insufferable to people who are giving you life-savingly excellent advice.
D) If you want bad advice that will affirm the choice you have already made, go ask a boomer or your parents or something
E) If you want good advice, listen to the people here who are familiar with this whole process

No, wrong again. My score was higher than that.


I don't believe you, but a 167 is not something you should really be rolling with either. Especially if you want a good shot at a 100K+ job and not suffering from soul-crushing debt (speaking of which, I wouldn't really be all that comfortable with a 200K job if I had to pay back 300K in debt)

No, wrong again. My score was higher than that. Believe it or not, every comment you have made has not helped me at all. I came on for an answer to a specific question, and anyone who refuses to give me an answer that follows the guidelines of my question is not helping me.


I'm sorry man, I genuinely don't want to see you ruin your life and if you adhere to your false dichotomy the risk of exactly that happening is far too great for me to just ignore with good conscience.

Haha I love how you just keep trying to guess my score. Here's some questions for you: What did you score? What was your gap? Where did you go to law school? Where did you go to undergrad? What is your salary? What is your iq? What do your parents make? If you refuse to answer any of these questions, I will make up my own answers to them, and if you say that answer is wrong, I will make up a new answer, and whenever you stop making retorts to whatever I assume is correct, I will assume that whatever I last guessed for every question is obviously 100% correct. Solid way of thinking buddy


169
Don't know what you mean by gap- is that a sexual thing?
The University of Texas
In law school now, so zero. Last year it was like 29K
145
Mom is retired, 98K a year last year she was working I think? Don't have a relationship with my dad, your guess is as good as mine

Not sure how any of that was relevant, but if it helps you to not go to either of those schools at those prices then I'm glad to have shared it.

Anyway, good luck

UT actually has better placement numbers than GULC. Median Private Sector Salary is also better.

Ok, so I assume you aren't paying sticker for UT, considering that it has worse placement and is just overall worse and less prestigious than GULC. If this is correct then at least you follow your own rules :).[/quote]

Yeah, nowhere close to sticker. I opted for the keep debt down and job goals reasonable at a strong regional over the T14 approach. But if it makes you feel any better I passed on 60-90K scholarships at a number of T14s that place better than Georgetown.

Again, I don't see what any of that has to do with your situation but if it saves you from either of these options then I'm more than happy to share.

These threads are always sadistically pleasurable to read. Social navigation must be really hard for some people. Good luck OP, you're going to need it. My advice: remember to be less insufferable when networking.

I'm not sure why everyone is attacking OP, he doesn't want to retake....not sure why all the hate for GULC, it's a great name, their large class hurts them with employment numbers, but a degree from there is way better than fordham, and slightly better than UT....UT has great numbers because it dominates Texas.....we still don't even know if he's going to get money from GULC because it's so early in the process....
