Choosing a Law School?

Postby IL785 » Thu Sep 16, 2010 11:07 pm

Hey, if anyone can help me out here, I'd really appreciate it...

To everyone who is in law school, what law school did you decide to attend and why (top 2-3 reasons)? Why did you decide to go to law school in the first place?

To those looking to go to law school, what schools are you looking at/hoping for and why (2-3 reasons)? Why did you decide to go to law school in the first place?

Thanks!!!

I'll be sending out apps in January, looking at/hoping to get into the best law school I can get into with as a splitter. My main target is George Washington. Looking at law schools on the east or west coast mainly, would like to be in a big city, and maybe get some money.

I assume most people want to go to law school because they want to be lawyers... and I want to be one of those because I like to read and think about the law and subjects like the law.

Employment prospects, placement reach, cost. In that order and nothing else.

Money. That's is the reason I chose my school; and maybe the reason I went in the first place.

The law: Air conditioning, irrelevance of undergrad degree or work experience, plenty of jobs in NY (or so I thought at the time)
My school: Status, greed, sex.

There's an irony in titling a thread "choosing a law school" and then not posting it in the forum titled "choosing a law school"...

Well, in the OP's defense, he does go on to ask us to summarize the majority of the forums.
