3.2 @ Low T-14 - OCI? How screwed?

Postby Anonymous User » Thu Jun 09, 2016 3:29 pm

One of T7-T14 here. Finished with EXACTLY .1 below median. I know this isn't a good place to be. Any tips going forward?

K-JD, non-URM, no IP. How screwed?

Stop reading tea leaves, start mass mailing.

I'm definitely planning to do that. Should I start applying now? Sorry if it's an elementary question, but coming from K-JD background, I'm still trying to get my head wrapped around the whole legal recruiting process.

start reaching out to alumni in your market for informational interview to try and build some repore. Your GPA will sometimes be an impediment but it doesn't hurt to possibly have some people looking out for you. Mass mail for sure there are several guides on TLS if you search about mass mailing. Mainly use merge fields to make it easy.

You'll be completely fine if you hustle. People get biglaw from lower T14s with 3.1s.

people who are generally sociable, good interviewers do so, even from schools outside of the T14. that's obviously a huge caveat though
