Tell us what's important to you
@LamentableGiftedBeetle
D or R?
That makes it a lot closer, but I'd still be a little biased towards Texas. The local connections you make there will be more helpful than the national ones you'd make at Georgetown.
politics is very much a local thing still.
Very true! I'm kind of thinking the same thing. Thank you so much. I appreciate it and it really does help a lot!!
My answers based on my experience as someone who hires corporate lobbyists in about 20 states, including Texas, though I am not a politician myself.
let's just put it this way, going to law school in Texas can Never be used again you in Texas - going to Georgetown could
Haha, I have definitely considered that possiblity!
and as you rightly say, connections are critical. Do as many politicians favors as you can. Get in and start volunteering for campaigns etc.
Will do. I'm only just beginning to but that only becomes more and more apparent the more I do.
Also consider small donations to candidates you really like. It does make a difference. Look at it as an investment in your future career.

Try and get really involved at the state level first. State assemblies are the best place to make connections. It's what I did and it has been paying pretty big dividends so far for me, thanking God for that
I will. Money in politics really is so essential

It's a lot easier than you would think to get in at this level as well. There is always a ton of work to be done and I'm sure your state rep would love to have an assistant that got into GT law
Thank you catman, I've definitely been leaning that way to start out. Glad to hear you're having success!

Thank you bro, dm me if there's any pointers I can give you
@catman: Thank you, bro. I'll take a pic to remember!
@LamentableGiftedBeetle: Also thanks again to you and your dad!
if i have more than average p/f grades due to covid + going abroad one semester will it be a big problem? nyu for example on lsac states they take into account ratio of p/f to graded courses though everyone knows abt the bot on lawadmissions that says p/f wont have any impact so not sure how to feel
It would be a lot better to run for politics in Texas, Texas has the best campaign finance laws in the country, as in it has none
if you make one good connection they can fund your entire campaign as an outsider/ anti establishment
That's how Ted Cruz got AG, he had a big donor who gave him a million dollars, and when he got mad that the press was chastising him for supported a republican as a gay man, he gave him another million, I know you're a D but just giving an example
I've actually looked, many outsiders last cycle in the Texas state house had more personal donors than special interests
@onetimesignin: That's very good advice. Based on everything I've learned so far, it definitely appears that would come in handy
Fool is I for giving advice to a democrat as I am a republican, but we're all in this together, lol
Only issued you'd run into out of state is the residency requirments, state house is easiest, but the requirments for senate and governor are increasingly more stringent in terms of length of residency
Yes, that's also something I have been thinking about as well!
@onetimesignin
