...2. as another posted commented, if she dislikes prestige, she will dislike the legal hiring process in general. prestige matters--whether it's related to the institution, one's grades, prior WE, etc. on the other hand, berkeley is probably about as laid back about prestige as any law school. our grading system, the fact that we don't really do class rankings, and our students in general are probably the main causes. i think harvard has a very similar system, though i don't know if it has produced the same effects there....


Tangential, but how important is prior WE? Is transitioning from, say, NGOs/education to biglaw doable/common?

Congrats. Harvard brand > Berkeley, even though the latter is obviously a top notch school. At the end of the day, I think name matters as much as or even more than the actual quality of education.
