What is the incentive for students to care about grades then. Why don't they just aim for 20th percentile and spend all there time at work and networking. Sounds like the 80th percentile for networking does well and that sounds easier than the 80th percentile for grades

Grades are very important for employment prospects, however, networking is important too. This is the same at higher law schools



You cannot believe that there is a law school or college of any kind where grades are not important. I would call you a troll but its fuckobvious


Not Harvard, Yale, or Stanford. Albany.

Good. Grades are very important. Top third does well and there is little competition and no debt

Glad to hear TJSL is going well. How about your simultaneous apps to BU, GW, and Fordham?

Sure [well, depending on your definition of "does well" and "top third" and "little competition," but putting that aside for now], but if you're not in the top 1/3, does it really matter whether you're ranked in the top half or the top 3/4? Someone ranked in the top 50% is not going to have a better shot at jobs based on grades than someone ranked in the top 75% - any advantage they have in getting a job will be based on networking, connections, experience. So it's not that grades are unimportant for all students at the school, it's that when you get outside that tiny sliver of people at the top, it doesn't really matter whether you're in the top 40% or top 60% - law firms won't hire a top 40% person over a top 60% person, they just won't hire either of them. (And no, there isn't a lot of incentive for those students to care about grades, and if they do, they're probably putting their energy toward the wrong things.)

I tend to think he's actually delusional and not a troll but you never know. Entertaining either way I suppose.

Top quartile is doing very well for employment and employers commonly say you must have a given GPA to apply. Median has a chance but that is when networking comes into play. Most employers aren't interested if you didn't break median. However there is very little competition

What do you mean, there's very little competition? There's always competition for legal jobs. There are more law grads than jobs, and there are a ton of law schools in New York (both NYC and the state).

There are few gunners and a lot of the class is of a lesser caliber. It is easy to do well in class as a result.

I also went to Emory and I have numbers to go to BU. But I'm worried about doing poorly in class

No your reasoning is flawed. I am judging the percentiles. Do not believe that the 99% and the 50% are alike

Just so I can understand the situation better: you had the numbers for BU and chose TJLS instead? Or you believe you'll have the numbers to transfer to BU?

And are you saying part of your rationale for going to TJLS was having less competition?

Just trying to get a picture, as I haven't been following your posts.
