    Hopefully picking up a 2-3 month contract. Then going to London for a while and if I don't land a job there I'll be back here to work an 8 monthcontract. Then HOPEFULLY go on my world trip.

    [​IMG][​IMG] feels good to be done

    Dathbgboy, was your GPA worse than a 2.75?? If it wasn't and if you do well on standardized tests, there's still hope.

    ^

    You should be fine with an extremely high score on your LSAT, and if you've got a lot of other credentials that will look good on your application.

    One of mine is I go to an extremely diverse school and that I was a student-athlete for four years. Schools love that type of @@*.

    Just finished undergrad..December 12, 2009! FTW!


    I received my B.S in Civil Engineering

    Whats next? It isnt looking to good job wise, but I have a few people in high places putting a word in. I just have to be patient

    I would like to get my Masters, but I have to study more material on this GRE. BTW, my GPA is lower than 2.75 as well [​IMG]

    For those graduating right now (December), good luck. I hope you did an internship in your chosen field that might give you a good chance of getting your footin the door somewhere. Otherwise, most of you will have it rough trying to find something. It does depend of your field, but overall it's bad out there.

    Teach for America is what's up next for me. So I'll be relocating for that. When finished with that I plan on going to law school.

    Congratulations my fellow 2010 college graduates!!! [​IMG]

    Should have my B.A. in Economics come May.

    Interned in the public policy branch for a certain big telecommunications company. I keep in touch and visit the office every now and then to keep my facefresh and hopefully I'll get something after graduation.

    I would like to pursue an MBA in the near future but my garbage #%# GPA (2.43..) might hold me back from some good schools.

    Will my job experience and test scores make up for a bad GPA?
