Re: HARVARD EXTENSION SCHOOL then YALE/HARVARD LAW!

Somewhat of an extreme/stupid question, I know; but I ask because I was just discussing this with a friend going to a "lesser" program at an Ivy, but has great aspirations of making it to Biglaw/Clerkship after YHS.

Doesn't matter? Matters a bit? Matters a lot? Hopeless?

In what case does it matter, and in what case does it not?

I think the underlying concept/theme of this question is, obviously, how much of an effect one's undergrad degree has on his/her success in the legal field.

Tell me what you think.


No, your undergrad won't affect biglaw or clerkship prospectives after attending HYS. It will depend on law school grades.

Hahahaa Yes, I'm serious. (I admit you're making me feel a little stupid here, though.)

Evidently, I'm a noob -- but really...? Law school, Law school grades, interview? SET?

TTT undergrad degree doesn't matter AT ALL?

You're a noob throwing around TTT? Flame.

You will have to focus mostly on firms that advertise in the yellow pages.

I heard that at some firms, even while controlling for LS rank, prestigious UGs are slightly overrepresented, but it's probably not a causal relationship.
