Also your speculation on the percentages that lead to jobs at different schools is flatly wrong. We have plenty of students outside the top third, even some outside the top half, that have recieved interships at big law firms. That you would try to make up percentages based on ghost stories makes you a moron, more so if you actually are a WashU student. If you want a job then shut the hell up and put the time in.

I think cornell is a huge difference between washu. Bigger firms go to cornell as compared to washu. also your margin of error is a lot higher at cornell than washu. Prob 2x higher. I think washu is like 20% ITE. Cornell is prob 40%. Ive heard ghost stories of people at cornell/gulc below median getting biglaw. Ive heard of no such thing at wustl. The career center told me if you are below top 1/3 you are in some trouble.romothesavior wrote:charliebrownwn wrote:Why'd you pick washington? What other schools were you considering?
Besides Wash U, I got into Cornell, Illinois, Vanderbilt, and BU. I also applied to Duke (rejection), GULC (priority waitlist), and Michigan (ED application, then WL, then rejection).
I had what most people (including most TLSers) would consider to be objectively better offers on the table with great scholarships to Vanderbilt and Illinois, but in the end, I chose Washington University because 1) I want to be in St. Louis when I graduate, 2) I lived in central Illinois for 22 years and was tired of the cornfields, and 3) I loved Wash U and got a really great vibe from the school when I visited.
