Thoughts on corps with sale and evidence with Rosen? I know the general consensus on rosen is you teach yourself the material, but since he is the only one teaching it this fall, should I just suck it up and take him?

Edit: and if anyone has done the prosecution clinic, how was it?

1L so take this as you will, but during our panel on course selection, the upper-class students raved about Mary Perry. Though I don't know if it was for that class.

Great thread guys. I've spent a lot of time going through the pages debating whether to come here this fall. Since the conventional TLS wisdom is to attend t14 or a respectable school where you want to practice. Where does this leave WUSTL, a school just [but markedly] outside of the t14 for someone who doesn't want STL?

What happens to the median student? Without biglaw (top20% grades) is it back to the hometown and hope they respect WUSTL? I'm debating between here and ND. They both seem to offer similar prospects in Chi/coasts, but ND is more recognized in my home state (Michigan). Besides COA/fit is there any other factor I should be considering?

Are there any opportunities for someone who likes to play jazz piano? Like a jazz band, or can law students take music courses for fun?

Who's good for pretrial? I've heard the class and the workload vary dramatically by prof. Which prof is good and doesn't work you too hard? Also if anyone is especially bad or works you excessively, that would be helpful to know.

Also, does anyone know anything about Larkin or Geigerman?

JCougar (recent washu grad) has a pretty wild thread going right now and he pretty much seems to hate his life. Maybe embellished, but is this a likely scenario around median? He's doing doc review or something, mostly seems unemployed.

Median at WUSTL is generally not a great place to be.

It's just wild to think that go up 5 spots in the rankings and you've got median students with a decent shot at biglaw.

So do people just not talk about the people around median? Or are most people not trying to get big firm work so it's not a big deal? Seems like the whole place would get very depressing after a couple semesters if the majority won't get the kind of job they want. 0L here.

LETS, thanks for the cogent analysis. JCougs is definitely off the reservation. Probably a bit darker than the median outcome but still not a great poster boy for Washu.

But to your point, if people around median find some type of work and STL doesn't dip that far into the class. Where are these people going? Back to their hometowns? I like the 10% or so that go to NY but if that's mostly people going back home that's discouraging.

I'm not trying to knock wustl individually. I know things can be tough no matter what school.

Gary Growe is the fucking man.

I have also heard Allison Lee (I think) is good.

I would save pretrial for your "roughest" semester though (which may very well be next semester) bc it is super easy.


Appreciate the tips, Sublime. Yeah that's the thing is everyone says to take as few curved classes as possible and as few classes with exams as possible, but I can't figure out a way to have less than four curved classes and four finals. So I kind of need pretrial to be not a lot of work.

Alison lee isn't teaching this year, which sucks because she ruled.

The 10% going to NY is almost exclusively made up of people working in biglaw fwiw.
