Starting Salary

Postby Anonymous User » Thu Dec 09, 2010 3:10 am

I know the job market is bad right now but I was wondering if it was reasonable to think that one could start off between 50-70k graduating at least at the median of a tier 1 in a state in which it is also the highest ranked law school? What else would I need to compensate for the grade situation (Law Review, Moot Court, Mock Trial, Work Experience)?

If you mean Iowa or Ohio State, the midwest market isn't exactly doing very well... If you mean Maryland, the DC market is even worse, I heard.

ITE, you can't by any means expect to graduate with a 50-70k job with Median at a T1. However, you can probably expect to get one (no guarantee) within 9 months of graduation, but even if you get a job it will likely entail a painful job search.
