best of luck to fellow URMs this year!

OP, when you get the chance, can you put a spreadsheet similar to last years so we can track this year's movement?

Good luck to all of you! Where are all of you from? Schools interested in? What kind of law do you want to practice?

Hey Prez,

Thank you--good luck to you as well!

I am from Upstate NY. I am interested in Harvard, Yale, Columbia, NYU, and Cornell. I'm not certain on what type of law I want to practice, but I am trying get Big law for a few reasons. I'm pretty open to a lot of types of law, though.

What about you, sir?

Canada - Harvard, Stanford, Columbia and NYU.


Side note. If I didn't do a STEM degree, how hard is it to get into practicing IP law? I wasn't originally considering it, so its not a big deal. But I have been thinking about it a lot lately.

Military brat, so no specific place I'm from. Mainly interested in NYU or Columbia, but have a pretty wide range of schools on my list. Similar to O'Drama, I'm not 100% sure what I want to practice but am hoping for big law. But I do have an interest in criminal law as well.

From Southern Cali and interested in the T10. Not quite sure which type of law yet, still trying to figure that out!

What about you?

TX native. I'm mainly interested in Stanford, UVA, Georgetown, and UT. I'll probably apply to all T14s besides Cornell. I am really interested in banking, securities, and finance. Possibly economic law as well. I hope to also get a joint degree in MPP or designing my own. Since I have heard it is tough to crack markets you have no ties to, I am really only interested in working in DC or TX, although I do have ties to the East Coast. Big Law is the focus, but it seems so time consuming and stressful. I would not mind mid-law

I'm blanketing the t-14, but including another8 or so schools. I know it's a lot, but I'm casting a wide net and hoping for a good cycle. Interested in international human rights law, so am hoping to end up in NYC or DC.

Nice! Good luck. Do you mind if I ask what your LSAT/GPA was. Approximately? Aiming for the same schools myself.

I'll be taking the Sept test but I'll be more than happy to post my my stats and cycle when I apply. African American male, aiming for Columbia, NYU, Harvard, Yale, UPen, and GT(these are just my top picks). Undergrad GPA: 3.32, several different on campus leadership positions and I have work experience. I wish everyone luck and a dope cycle. For the Sept test takers, study your ass off!
