Struck Out at OCI

Postby Anonymous User » Thu Aug 23, 2012 11:47 am

So I go to a T14 and struck out, grades slightly above median. Pretty high debt load without any independent source for paying that debt off.

What are my options? Is dropping out something I should truly consider? Although I worked before law school it wasn't in a defined space that I could easily gain employment in.

I have some WE which markets to a corporate background but should I continue to take classes in this area or should I focus more on litigation?

Really was banking on a summer program to give me a sense of what kind of law I wanted to practice but that appears not to be in the cards.

If you are going to say drop out please give me a sense of exactly why?

Not OP, but along these lines: Are there any PI Jobs/Orgs or Gov that hire from their summer programs, or is it a long two year slog from here?

Time to hustle. Mass mail, go talk to career services for leads, etc. Your window is closing.

Posted this on some other places but all I really know is EPA & GAO

EPA maybe hired one of their summers last year.

GAO has about 5 summers and they plan to actually hire them, as long as the budget allows. I guess they streamline it so they only hire who they hope to hire later on. Offers already been sent out.
