Your LSAT score and narrative are tied for the #1 consideration if you’re shooting for a top school. Depending on where you fall within the quartiles you may get into a top school with no scholarship or a mid-level with a full-ride. Apply early and demonstrate interest.


Not sure if you're still planning to apply or already done, but you could also consider a JD/MBA if both degrees are interesting to you. Both degrees together are never required and it'smuch more expensive, but it's heavily weighted towards consulting applicants, because the transition makes more sense. I know very few ppl who regret having done it at the school I went to

I was recently approached by a recruiter about a position as a litigation attorney at the DOJ. Unfortunately, he didn’t have any more specific information other than what I would be doing is “generally commercial litigation.” Can anyone share insights on what this may entail? Is it normal for a recruiter to be placing people for these government repositions?

It's been a challenging year for me, including a rejection from GSAP. This week, I got into my top choice MBA program - and an M7 to boot! Just goes to show that sometimes Deloitte's decisions can be misaligned to the greater world.
I hope that Deloitte gives me the chance to be a good brand ambassador - but at the point, it's up to the firm if I even consider coming back :)

Hi! Anyone attend law school part-time while working full time? If so, would you be willing to share the total debt you graduated with? I only ask because I have not been able to find any info related to this online (only stats on full-time students).

I will be submitting applications to schools in one month, but really want to gain a better understanding of finances during and after graduating from law school.
