LLMBound2L wrote:Ok so I chose a law school that was not at the top of my law school list, but one that offered me a full-ride . I have regretted it ever since, but unfortunately, it is too late to change now . I most likely have a job offer for IP at a big law firm when I graduate. However, I am more interested in government contracts, and on top of that, I would really like to get a degree from a better school than the one I chose . I am not located in Washington DC where most of the government contracts biglaw firms reside . My end goal is to do government contracts in-house for a company like Lockheed, Boeing, etc. Should I accept the big-law offer in IP, keep my debts down, and try to transfer eventually as a lateral either to a big-law govt contracts firm or in-house, or should I go to Washington DC to get my LLM in government contracts procurement .What should i be thinking about when I make this decision? I don’t know anything about the Government Contracts law industry, and my school knows nothing as well I don’t want to add to my debt . . . however, IP is not very fun. I could suffer through it for a few years if necessary to get to a better end goal !
