Big firm placement in dc

Postby Mr.JD2015 » Mon Jun 06, 2011 12:38 am

AA Male, 2.7, 160

I'm from DC and want to work biglaw in DC. Would it make sense to attend Howard if I don't get into the top 14 or schools like Gtown or GW?

I can't imagine that you will get into t-14.

So, yes.

I mean I really like Howard and I just want to know if it will be worth it. This may ne something I may have to find out through alumni of HUSL.

Your chances of biglawl are like 15% max from Howard, so no.

90% chance you won't do well enough to transfer. Your GPA is pretty bad, so I recommend retaking the LSAT if you want to get serious about biglaw chances. You don't have a shot at GULC or GW, and DC is insanely competitive.

Are you maxed out on the LSAT? Retaking would really be advantageous.
