Jobs in Houston, TX

Postby texag08 » Thu Sep 23, 2010 11:32 pm

I am a 1L at UH and was sort of wondering what kind of luck you 2 and 3L's were having applying for jobs in the Houston market.

I know it is early and i have more pressing concerns at the moment, but what is the market like right now and what do the prospects for a UH grad in the middle on their class look like (i dont want to be too presumptive)??

Median at UofH w/out Law Review = Big Law Fail. Houston is better than Dallas, but still is a struggle for those at T14s even in the top 33%.

So what sort of jobs can I feel confident in landing? What if i wrote for another review ( i am interested in energy)?

Can i still be hopeful of landing a job at around 100k?

Don't sell yourself short. Go in with the attitude that you'll crack the top 10%.

Median = likely death at every school except those that make it impossible for outsiders to know where the median even is.
