I desperately want to live in NYU housing and would basically take anything they have.
Also, a more general NYU question, how guaranteed are big law jobs up and down the class rank?
Is there still a chance for more "prestigious" firms below median? (I know people here scoff at prestige or whatever but humor me)
What does placement for median students look like?
And what can top third and above land from NYU?
Thanks for any responses. Never thought I'd be at NYU and don't really have a clear idea of just how "superior" it is to non-t6 t14s. Trying hard not to come across as a gunner/weirdo 0l here lol just curious.
I think you should still be able to get housing this late! I'd probably recommend calling to see if they still have spots available.
Big law jobs are very doable at/below median. I have plenty of median friends at V10 firms, but I think personality and prior work experience helped there. If you're far below median (like bottom 25%) you'll need to hustle a bit more for big law, but if you're a good interviewer you should be just fine.
Top 1/3 - great chances for clerkships, maybe some government positions, and otherwise plenty of V10 options. Just depends on whatever you're looking to do!
