Drilled the writing section for 8 hours this weekend-definitely going to get me that extra scholarship $$$.
People on here diss GTown for not keeping up with the other t14's when it comes to employment stats
GULC OCI>>> H/Y/S...
Why do you say that?
Curious as well - I'm basing my enrollment decision for this fall entirely on the answer to this question
I'd be cautious putting a *ton* of stock in their employment statistics - A few current lawyers I've spoken with along with GULC alumni have told me that a good portion of their class self selects into non-traditional jobs post-JD (think IC, FS, etc), and that drags down their employment statistics.
If you want DC, GULC is basically your best bet other than H/Y IMO[/quote]
Just read this again and also am intrigued (and maybe slightly worried) by how you equivalate LSAT with intelligence. Yes, LSAT has been shown to be correlating with 1L grades, but would you really say that a 179/3.5 is more intelligent than a 172/3.8? And that the former will definitely outperform the latter in law school?[/quote]
In my opinion yes,undergrad gpa is pretty much useless outside of LS admissions. But LSAT still correlates while in LS. That 179 person is above the 75th percentile at Harvard. That 179 person I would assume is more likely,to be the top of the Harvard class. This is because of pure work ethic and outside factors like social skills,writing ability, and trial skills. A 172 person,while performed well on the LSAT. In my opinion more then likely will not beat out 179 person, in HLS or LR. That 179 person will more then likely be a Partner or appointe in some fashion. When you get into the 170's every point matters. Most people who score 179-180 are correlated to above average intellect to genius. By test taking methods,research,and comprehension. Compared to a person with a 172 who could be hard worker with above average intelligence,but can't make H Law Review. While most likely barely breaking median (I.e top 45-55%).
