I'd be a damn fine recruiter if I do say so myself.

In case anyone didn't know, TPM is credited and a bad ass.

Once we start talking about AUSA, though, we get into the unicorn zone. 400 applicants for one spot in a flyover state? Heh.



Exactly. It's kind of dumb to even talk about as a 0L. It requires a tremendous amount of luck to even get in the running.

Isn't JAG really competitive nowadays, too?



I mean, I think it's totally great to have goals. And that's really why I am talking about wanting to be an AUSA. I know the likelihood is slim but that doesn't mean I won't try to put myself in the best position to get there. :mrgreen:

162/3.62

According to the c/o 2015 profile I'm above GPA median and only one point above the 25% LSAT. So it's kind of a shot in the wind. But I'll see.

You're underestimating yourself.

I'm sure you'll do quite a bit better than GW.

Also, why ED? I thought the consensus was that it didn't really help URM applicants.

There isn't enough data to conclude that it does or doesn't help URMs.

I could see that. I thought we had agreed that URM cycles are unpredictable, are accepted later than non-URM applicants, and that ED means little to no money.

The GWU ED is a full ride.

On an unrelated note, no URMs have received JS1s yet?

That gif. It is spectacular. I am in love.

Anyway, I thought I should come out, as it were. I've been lurking, but clearly you all are too cool for me to just sit back and watch--I want to get in on the fun. And the dance parties which will clearly be going down as we all get our acceptances. :D

To introduce myself: biracial AA female, 3.5/179, UG not an Ivy but may as well've been. Pretty much blanketing the T14, intending to go to whichever gives me the most $$$. Want to work in-house for tech companies or VCs, so gunning for SF biglaw with every intent on bailing after 4 - 5yrs because I prefer to work some vague semblance of reasonable hours, thank-you-very-much.

Best of luck on all your cycles!

Oh, that's cool. I guess I don't know enough about GWU. Or ED. Or much of anything at all, really.

No, it's not that the t14s aren't accepting me, don't worry. I haven't sent out applications. Everyone was just giving me suggestions based on what I want specifically. Which is $$$ and to stay in DC.

I'm a pretty unique situation.
