The New York legal market?

Postby rickynwhyc » Fri Nov 05, 2010 9:04 pm

Hey guys.

I've lived in New York all my life. I'm currently an undergraduate senior, applying to Law School within these next two months..

I'm not looking at the T14, I simply don't have the GPA (3.3) and my Lsat will be close to 166-168 most likely.

I want to work at a Biglaw firm in NY. I realize ITE this is a ridiculous goal for someone outside of T14.

So my question is, based on my grades and my preference, what T30 LS would be best for securing a job in the NY Market? I know that the T14 are constantly pouring students in to NY so there is a lot of competition.

Fordham looked like a logical option, but many on these forums are saying employment prospects are horrendous across the board.

So my question is, for those of you familiar with the NY market, which schools outside of the T14 have a decent shot at landing BigLaw in NY? Where are firms looking? Which schools have reputations that span over to NYC? UIUC? GWU? BC, Emory, Iowa, Twin cities, Davis, UGA? Where do I have the best shot at working in NY?

Redundant to this thread:

Also, this isn't a legal employment question, it's a choosing a law school question.
