Re: TLS Collected Wisdom on Success in Law School

Hi all,

I graduated in the top 10 (not top 10%, literally top 10) of my cohort. I was one of the few who graded onto law review and I was one of those crazy overachievers who graduated a semester early. I am currently working in the largest law firm in the city.

Didn't bust my ass on the LSAT to settle on a school with a median of 148. This is how I feel about NUSL.

Re: when do we apply for federal student loans?  
  by: cavalier1138   on: January 22, at 6:37:38 am   in: Financial Aid
You submit your FAFSA to any school where you've been accepted. Schools will inform you of the loan calculations. If the school has a specific time frame for releasing scholarship information, that's usually when you find out about the specifics of your loan. But you really don't need to worry about how much you'll get. Assuming you haven't got the world's worst credit, you'll get the maximum amou...

I agree with most of the advice so far. I think that being in your target market is important. It will make your job search easier and your narrative will be stronger during your interviews.

  by: cavalier1138   on: January 22, at 6:34:25 am   in: Choosing a Law School
Generally, I agree that retaking from SLU to get more money at WashU makes sense, simply because a good chunk of SLU's graduating class don't even get to work as lawyers. But wherever you go, you cannot take on debt. Small firms salaries are not enough to cover any real amount of law school debt.

No need to retake the LSAT. The only thing that will keep you out of HYS (and really, just YS) is your lack of work experience. That doesn't mean you're definitely not getting in, but it's the only weak point in your application. However, there are two thoughts I have after reading your entire post: 1. Apply more broadly.

The answer here also depends a lot on where you go to school. Better school = better geographic mobility. I.e. If hat HYS or CCN, maybe no reason to go to target market and stay w family. If at a strong regional or T1 type schlll in another market, will definitely need to start establishing a network/meeting people in target city.
