Application numbers to law school seem like they’re going to be out of control this year. I do not know where to apply…I assumed I could get into a tier one school. However, I just finished reading horror stories about superstars getting rejected from tier two schools.
So, my question is, should I wait this out (the financial crisis, that is)? If I can’t get into a tier one school or a tier two school, will I be able to find a job with a JD from the other law schools. I so desperately wanted to be done with my law degree by age thirty. After all, if I ever want to have children, they’re not too convenient while starting a law career. As it is, I’m putting such thoughts out of my head until I’m 35 (much to my mother’s dismay!).
Perhaps I should have my eggs frozen (can you even do that?)!!!!!!
Anybody else feeling like this out there?
