What are my chances, if any?

Postby lawwatevz » Wed Jun 16, 2010 1:15 am

I am currently attending a T40 school. I transferred here from a T80 school. I initially applied to law school part-time due to personal family issues; however, once I transferred, I was precluded from transferring to full-time and therefore remain a part-time student.

I was top 12 percent at my previous school.

I now have a GPA of 3.7 at my current school, which places me in the top ten percent bracket.

I'm also a member of a secondary journal.

I have ties to NYC and would like to practice there.

Also, bilingual if that helps.

Ideally, would like to shoot for BigLaw.

so are you asking your chances at a job basically? If thats it I can assure you not many people on here can really tell you that. Mainly because alot of people have amazing numbers and can't find Big Law jobs. I'm a firm believer in opening your own doors. You have to make people look at you as something they must have. The question you have to ask yourself is "What makes you different/better than someone with similar numbers?". Good Luck
