If you are a URM and going to law school next year, there is no question that you need to try to get into this program. Unless what you want next summer is something other than literally the best pre-law program out there and basically a grade-proof shot at biglaw, you need to have an application in when they open. I guarantee you that no one who has done the program would advise you not to do it. We all like to complain about stuff that is just annoying in the moment, but has no actual affect on anything.
Maybe, but everyone's circumstances are a little different. I like where I'm at now and The projects are really awesome. Plus I have a commitment through the end of next summer. Tough to risk damage to a great professional relationship I want to keep. I'll probably apply and see what happens.
But thanks for all the info, this was very helpful!
No. Except if you are working for the president (and I basically mean that literally), then SEO is the best pre-law program and the only thing you should try to do before law school -- and that's even if you don't want to end up a big law.
In the last two weeks I've managed filings in SCOTUS and two other state Supreme courts across the country. This year is going to be filled with many other baller litigation projects with really smart litigators who are making me a better professional (in terms of my substantive legal knowledge and skills). You don't just walk away from a good place without really understanding your alternative. Especially if big law from a T-14 isn't really that hard for URM (and this might be a flawed understanding) since they and clients appear thirsty for more diversity.
I don't know what they're feeding you over there, but I'd take it easy on the kool aid.
Have you done the program? Maybe you could share what it did for your development as both a professional and law student?
