what kind of jobs were people in the upper half/top of your class getting? do they still have their jobs?
what about people below the middle of the class?
do you mind sharing your thoughts on how or whether initial "place" in the class based on LSAT/GPA reflects performance in general? i'm not sure if i've worded that correctly...(ie were you about median LSAT/GPA range for UGA coming in? above? below? etc.)
It's hard for me to speak to the status of my whole class, as I keep in touch with exactly 0 of my classmates. My best guess is maybe the top 10-15% of the class got larege firm jobs. I know of at least a few who were offered the old $XXk stipend to sit around for a year (deferments). I know one guy who is clerking for Clarence Thomas. Clarence Thomas clerkships are one weird thing that uga has on lock.
There is no initial place in the class based on anything. You are in there in the arena for the first time with the rest of the gladiators. Your performance will be measured by nothing except your ability to write a law school exam. Your relative LSAT and gpa do not factor into your ability to do this, at least in my experience and estimation.
