WE, UG, and Connections

Postby ThreeRivers » Sat Dec 31, 2011 9:02 pm

I know its common TLS knowledge that when applying to schools, its pretty much LSAT / GPA (with some exceptions), but... when searching for a job, how important is WE / UG?

Do firms pretty much look at your law school / class rank in combination with your interviewing skills, or does WE and UG start to matter? I'm asking because I'm applying as a K-JD from a horrible undergrad...

Also, how likely is it that one can get hired without having an "in." I basically know NO ONE in the legal field, outside of struggling graduates from Cooley / Liberty (I wish I was kidding lol)... I'm hoping to network / make connection in LS, but unfortunately I don't have the "my daddy's old fraternity buddy can get me a job"
