BU/Fordham/GWU 4 biglaw?

Postby Cupidity » Sun Mar 21, 2010 1:36 am

Is big-law possible from any of these 3 schools? I'm in at all, small scholarships roughyl nuetralizing the differences in price and COL. Where should I go if I want big law....should I give up on Big Law as an option? Assume I bust my ass and get top 25%....even though yeah I know, you can't assume that.

Is this a flame? A proper thread would ask if you can get biglaw from like the University of Wyoming or something like that? GWU/BU/Fordham, you kidding me, playoffs?

I'm serious, I want big law, these are the three best schools I've got. Where are my odds best.

If you land in the top quarter at BU, biglaw in Boston should be a piece of cake, even ITE. Top 25% at BU should also easily take you to NY and other places.

No, you asked "is biglaw possible from these schools." That is a ridiculous question. Biglaw is possible from almost any school in the country but these schools place very well in biglaw (maybe not 50% ITE, but top 1/4 is not some lottery ticket either). Your last question is more reasonable.

It's possible from all three...and the differences between the three in terms of placement into biglaw are not all that different. Figure out which market you want to break into and go to the local school (i.e. GW for DC).
