Law school graduates...?
Is it true that if a student graduates from an ivy league law school he'll most likely find a job within the first 6 months. Not only that but he'll get a job with a prestigious law firm and he'll have high paying positiong where his starting salary is around $200,000. As opposed to a person getting out of an ordinary non ivy league law school where he'll be lucky to find a job within the first year out of law school, he'll be in law school debt owing $100,000 and he'll only find a job that pays around $30,000. Plus he'll have to take years to work up the ladder to get the job that the ivy league law school graduate has. Is it this true? i was taking the public train on the way to school and a guy sat next to me and started talking to me because he saw my LSAT prep book. He told me if i wanted to become an attorney i should go to an Ivy league school so i won't have to suffer after law school. Btw he's an entertainment lawyer. Is it all true?

I am not a law student, but I do have a friend who is a law student at GW and that's what she said. You shouldn't be discourages by what the guy said. If becoming a lawyer has always been your dream, then you should go head for it regardless of the money or how much you're expected to work to get where you need to be... More
