Hahahah I love how all the WUSTLers come out when a thread comes out with WUSTL bottom 1/3. Shouldn't this be in employment also?

I would think bottom 1/3rd anywhere would be, if not fucked, at least in a shitty position. obviously, would depend on school, region, career goals... but ah.. yeah.

The only good news is, only 30% of us can be in the bottom 30%.

That's what I was thinking. Even with no debt, I'd think bottom 3rd is an awful place to be in terms of jobs. That's why if you have an excuse for a "re-boot" of 1L (in a much better situation without family trouble), I would take it. Also, OP, you are younger than me.

If $$$ isn't a problem it's even more of a reason to just deal with family, especially if the administration is being helpful.

I'm a 2L transfer student actually. So we'll see where I stand after this term...

yeah, they're handing out our grades tomorrow. i wish i didn't read that email, i'll be spending the next 12 hours reviewing for torts and i didn't need to be reminded of my failure so much.

btw... what section are you? I hang out with some TLS guys, and i recognize your id.


Haha we might know each other IRL, I know almost all of the TLS posters. I'm in section E. I'm not even picking up my LRM grade tomorrow, first of all it's our raw score, second we won't know how that impacts our grade, third tomorrow night/afternoon is time to get fucked up, not discuss our LRM midterm.


holy shit.. we're in the same section. I'm the asian guy that never showed up for classes. lol

btw, noone has any idea on employment prospects?


It s not pretty......... Even bottom 1/3 at CCN or MVP is going to be terrible....
I don't think you want to know what bottom 1/3 is at wustl.
Just hope you aren't bottom 1/3.......... The good part is that there is a 2/3 chance that you wouldn't be in the bottom 1/3 :)

At oci this year, people in the top 1/3 seemed to get a decent amount of interviews. I think there was a good ratio of individuals employed from the top 1/3. Even during the boom, WUSTL was placing around 1/3 into biglaw/midlaw/prestigous clerkships..... So i figured that top 50% would have a chance back in 07. Now prob 25% get biglaw/midlaw/clerkship and you need top 1/3 to be competitive.

Bottom 1/3rd anywhere is going to be in some trouble. The only school that I would attend even if I knew I was going to be in the bottom third is Yale, because just being able to say that you went there is pretty amazing.

dont worry man, i thought i had an advantage from reading tls and having a game plan etc, but i feel awful right now too. I think you'd be surprised how many people really dont feel confident at all coming out of those two exams. We're all in this together

Good luck tomorrow buddy, dont give up hope

I didn't say law school is easy or that I'll do well. Just that work you do early in the semester is useless. I don't think I'm working harder than everyone else this last month.

The material is easy, and doesn't take months to learn. The application is the hard part.

But I can tell you that the super amazing brief someone was working on in October was useless.

DF is completely right. As long as you read, went to class, briefed all semester there is not reason to study for finals before you have all your info and you can start outlines the right way.

The bottom third anywhere but the T6 is probably screwed right now.

Before ITE, WUSTL used to be above median gave you a chance, and top third gave you a really good chance.

Now it's more like top third gives you a chance, and Law Review gives you a really good chance. I know 2Ls on secondary journals that got biglaw interviews, but they got like 1 or 2 interviews each. Just outside the top third, and they had good work experience.

We're not screwed anymore than any other non T18 school. But that doesn't mean much.

The thread title can be interpreted as: WUSTL students place in bottom 30% compared to all law schools in the nation.

:P got me for a sec
