I know I am thinking about this really early since I am just an 0L, but I was wondering how hard I have to work/network to get a big law job in Boston after law school.

1)wrong forum
2)why didn't you apply to BC/BU instead? it's not too late to withdraw...

Why would you go to USC when you want to practice in Boston?

Yea, I've never met a single USC grad in Boston. I would do my best to go to BU/BC instead if thats the level of school you're looking at - or, might as well retake and try to get into Cornell - not a huge LSAT difference.

I go to BU/BC, you need ties to work in Boston. So, if you didn't grow up in Boston you need to go to school here.

Even if OP grew up in Boston, summer classes in Boston tend to be 60% Boston schools. E.g., Goodwin is usually 50% BU; Wilmer is 50% Harvard, etc.
