If you want to work/live in Atlanta or Georgia.
Unfortunately this sounds like some serious second-guessing of school choice in general. It has to be a good feeling to be back with a strong notion of what law you want to practice and, from my understanding, unless you're gunning for USAO or something, law review grades and a conscious effort to make some connections is going to get you in the door with a prosecutor. Hell, do an externship and get credit for it.
Damn you attucks, stop bringing logic into this thread!
Part of me would just hate to have this degree hanging on my wall b/c of how much I dislike the school and administration, but it does have a decent presence in one state in particular. Ugh. I hope I get two A's for my remaining two classes and I do get a shot at some more national schools.
I guess this is the ultimate dilemma here: LR and near the bottom of the top 10 at a t3 school that I don't like or transfer to a strong regional like Emory, pay 27% more, lose the chance to clerk (probably), but get a better degree that may pay off more in the end.
Wow, I was so hoping it wouldn't come down to this but I kind of always thought it would.
Oh, btw, this school was one of those "I would be alright with working in the area but I want to transfer" kind of choices, so I wouldn't say I am second guessing my school choice, I have just become more and more pissed at this school's horrific administration and its TTTness lately.
