Postby gandhi10 » Mon Feb 01, 2010 9:06 pm

Thinking about applying to jm, but its been difficult finding any employment facts. Are there any grads or future grads that would like to share their experience finding a job or salary figures?

I know they were still on temporary accreditation (or whatever it's called) a few months back. So they are still pretty new. So there probably aren't really any job statistics. Plus it's a 4th tier temporarily accredited law school, so I would assume a blood bath would be more pleasant than their job search.

I worked with a JM grad at a restaurant in Columbus, Ohio last winter who was studying to take the bar. She went PT and graduated in the top 10% of her class. She had a job lined up in Atlanta for after she took the bar and was just living in Columbus to save money on rent while she studied. I don't know the size of the firm but I know she worked there as a paralegal while getting her degree. So, there is at least 1 recent grad who had a job. This is all I got on JM, hope it helps.

I would try not to go here. Barely accredited is probably not a good option.
