To follow up on another post...does anyone know about the brooklyn law international business law fellowship?
While I have a really hard time recommending anyone to attend Seton Hall, I'd be sorely tempted to take that offer ITE. 50 percent requirement isn't horrific; I managed to stay on the right side of the curve while treating LS like a part time job (i.e. putting less than 30 hours of work per week into it - and that's including class time), and I go to a school that's renowned for competitiveness and intense studying.
That's not to say you should take LS lightly - really, I don't recommend anyone to be as casual as I was - but it is to say that a top 50 percent isn't too high of bar to get over. Were they asking for a top third placement, I'd tell you to say no, thanks. As it is, it's a tough call.
Dresden, darling, you have your grades?
I do have to caution that I have friends who worked very hard who are not above the median, at least so far. Even treating it like a job is not a guarantee, since, by definition, half your class must be below median. I only have one grade back, so anything could happen to me.
