Hi I’m John — a litigator at a Vault 100 law firm. Here’s my story.
I grew up in a small town but after high school I went off to study at a big state university. Once there I majored in political science so, like many of you, I was destined to eventually go to law school.
After a couple years in sales I decided to make the jump. But there was just one big problem — G.R.A.D.E.S. See, my undergrad GPA was what one law school admissions counselor described as “unfortunate.”
I knew that if I wanted to go to a solid law school I had to do extremely well on the LSAT. And thankfully, that’s exactly what I did.
I applied to virtually all of the T14 law schools. And I was rejected by each one. Disappointed but not deterred, I accepted a small scholarship to attend a T2 law school.
I started law school with a single focus: finish 1L at the top of my class and transfer to one of the T14 schools that rejected me.
After receiving multiple Book Awards and crushing my 1L exams, I successfully transferred to one of the nation’s top law schools. The rest is history.
