Stay w/ LR? Or go?

Stay at D/M/V with Law Review, and try to get a west coast job from there.

D/M/V --> B/S

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Jul 03, 2013 12:21 am

OK that subject line needs some work, and in another context might be a broad frustration most people have whenever their license needs renewal.

Anyway, I'm Duke/Michigan/Virginia, top 20%, law review, trying to get back to the bay for pretty strong personal reasons. Got into Berkeley, waiting on Stanford. Berkeley's offer expires before Stanford makes decisions, so what should I do? Trying to get to west coast, may consider clerkship/academia in the future, mostly just want to work biglaw in SF.

Side note, I'm hesitant with jobs to lose law review. Can I leave law review along with my old school on my resume just to show I had it?

Um.. why not just put down the berkely deposit, and then forfeit it if Stanford lets you in... The only one who will care is Stanford, and you can just call them up and ask if they are okay with that (pretty sure the answer will be yes).

There is no deposit, they assume that if you accept you're a person of your word. I don't know if that affects C&F, but I'm just assuming it does for purposes of the poll, that I can't renege on accepting.
