Very Unusual Academic History at a T14--Advice Needed

Postby EllaLemry » Sat Jun 09, 2012 10:26 am

Career services are useless. I have a really strange (but problematic) academic history, and could use some advice from someone who has a good handle on how biglaw firms make hiring decisions. Respectfully, I'd request a private message. My issues are so specific that I could be personally identified from a mile away if I gave specifics on the forum. None of my information is unethical, illegal, etc, so my personal story doesn't contain anything that would put a responder in an uncomfortable situation. I'd just prefer as much privacy as I can get.

Thanks,

Ella

If this doesn't relate to law school, then firms just don't care. I know plenty of people who took 6-10 years to finish undergrad, had multiple undergrads, or horrible uGPA's (like sub 3.0) who did fine because firms only look at law school grades.
