I am sure they will stress it many times at ASW, but it is super easy to take classes outside of LS.

Also, I am just getting more and more excited about Penn. Their portfolio has done an amazing job of making the clinics, the courses and the city look more appealing than I though previously.

For others who are considering Penn and want to do public interest law, what is your thought process? I had sort of discounted Penn because they're not known for PI, but their variety of clinics and courses is changing my mind a little bit. I haven't done my comprehensive comparison of everyone's LRAPs yet, but theirs doesn't look bad. I also liked their clerkship numbers for recent graduates. Anyone else looking at these things and/or have a different perspective?


I'm going to do PI stuff! I've looked into their LRAP. It's not super amazing, but it's not awful either. If you PM me your e-mail I can send you a graph thingy I made of LRAPs. I'm really interested in their clinics & their tonnnns of courses (as well as some cross-disciplinary stuff), so Penn is definitely way more on my horizon now than it was a few months ago.


I'm PI too!!! And yeah I had the same concerns with Penn, but I feel like they have plenty of opportunities available. It's probably just self-select that they have a bigger rep for biglaw. I also think the overnight PI retreat looks like it would be a lot of fun and a great way to find a group with similar career interests. Are you going to the PI panel at ASW? If you're going to the second one I'll see you there!

What, I signed up for the first one. I figured the first career services one will be crowded with biglaw people so I wanted to go to send CS one.

I'm sure they'll cut it off if there are 5 million people at the first one and none in the second. Plus it'll be nice to mix with the other PIs if we do get slammed with a bunch of biglaw propaganda. Not to mention the second PI has all the fun people signed up. :D

yes but all the biglaw gunners are going to be in the first one asking about SA and job placement in NYC and other stuff ... 2nd career services panel will be more laid back. Ok I will switch.

Muahaha. A wise decision on your part. :twisted: Haha I also just had this really funny image of this TLS "clump" that are frequently seen together. The outsiders are going to wonder how we all know each other already.

ASW has info and Penn is e-mailing if you live in one of those areas.

I really did go to a pre-law camp in high school. :oops: And I hope the others don't hate us. We should invite at least one of them to the Thursday night social so it doesn't look like we're biased. Although I'm also planning on having an apartment-warming party as soon as I get out there. You must be a TLSer to attend. :wink:

P.s. Can you tell I just got back from a firm reception?
Ah, the biglaw does provide the good life, if only I am worthy. . .

Just went through some of the stuff in the portfolio. Kinda disappointed in the lack of ip stuff at least compared to some other schools.
Re these receptions... What are they like? Can't decide if I want to go or not.

De top shelf booze is provided. De associates talk about how interresting their work is. De kobe beef is on tap. De partners woo you.

Basically, remember the first date you went on in high school where you wore a pushup bra? Basically like that.

Haha I meant the admitted students ones talked about above. Glad those ones are good too. Or talking about same thing?

I like firm receptions. I like all free food and drink things, especially when they are good.

Actually I think they are just alumni receptions that admitted students are welcome to go to. Just as good.

Edit: If you want to do IP and have an IP backround, I would not worry about de lack of de Ip "stuff." Penn is better for IP than any school in your profile, you can take IP as a 1L here. also, were are better for biglaw period.


I don't think law school makes or breaks IP. If you have the BG/WE for it, it will be ok no mtter where you go. If you don't, it's going to be tough cracking it because you are at a disadvantage to the people who do.
