what, getting pushed out of skadden after 2-3 years of drudgery and then transitioning to shitlaw or a low-paid boring in-house job?



Good to see this thread starting off on the right foot...

While nothing is certain, it's hard to understand why you're shitting on a full ride at a T1 school AND a guaranteed biglaw job (even if it turns out to be only for 2 years). That's an opportunity I'm sure most people here would love to have.

Mr. Loblaw,

Should we care about the opinions of the many or the good and the wise?

We should care about getting a job and minimizing debt.

And I sure as hell aren't putting you in the "good and wise category" seeing as you apparently came into this thread solely to be a jerk. That is neither good nor wise, Plato.

Rothman is a pretty good deal. Free tuition and guaranteed SA spot at skadden after 1l. That is a combined total of over 200,000 dollars.

Do you know anything about the public interest scholars program? A friend who recently graduated from USC had never heard about it so it may be newer? Im hoping you can provide any info on it since there doesnt seem to be much, thanks for your help!

I honestly don't really know anything about it either. I wouldn't hesitate to reach out to the admissions office though, they are really great about answering questions. Sorry I can't be more help!

Wait... can someone explain Rothman to me? Is it just a 1L SA, or guaranteed offer following graduation?

My understanding was that it was only a 1L SA. A guaranteed offer would be insane

Beats the shit out of me. This is what's stated in the email:

Full-tuition scholarship guaranteed for 3 years (estimated at $180,000)
$2,000 stipend each year for 3 years
Paid 1L summer fellowship at one of the top law firms in the world - Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom in Los Angeles

Agreed. I'm applying, but I feel the same way about other schools and those $30 report fees do start to sneak up on you.
