Is it better to start off with accepting an offer from a firm thatís small but the bosses are generous with guidance, or reject it for a potentially better offer? Any thoughts/advice on moving laterally from a small to medium firm, and medium to large firm?

NU guy here, yup I got above 170 too. I have a Singaporean friend in HLS who had a 175+. It's pretty much a prerequisite to get 170+ at least if you want a good shot at a T14 school, since our non-US college GPAs aren't factored in as part of the admissions process (thank goodness for that given my super low NUS gpa).

About the LSAT, unfortunately I've given all my books and materials away, else I'd be glad to give em to you. I highly recommend PowerScore books (textbooks can be borrowed from NLB, workbooks have to be bought), as well as 7Sage (it's an online prep resource with lotsa free videos) when you're studying!

Folks, can we have a separate thread for this please.

I read through the entire thread and realized that 99% of the people here really lack entrepreneurship. All of them are talking about salary and career progression while working for some firm. Their focus is what firm is good etc etc. Why not work for a few years and start your own firm? After all lawyers are 1 of the professions where you can start your own firm easily. You can pick 1 area of law and specialize in it. If you cannot handle some parts of the work, you can farm them out. Better than working like a dog for someone else building their dreams. After all, even magic circle firms started off being small firms. My plan is once I gain sufficient experience, I will buy a shop house in Chinatown and start a small firm, then slowly expand.

Legal service (incld JLC): 4.8/4.4k (with NS, 1st/2.1); 4k/3.8k (wo NS, 1st/2.1) - seems low but this is payable from part b/RLT onwards and there is a further increment after 1 year or so
