Why The Quality Of Your Previous Firm Matters More Than Your GPA [00:00:00] How does GPA matter once you've been out of school for four years. I don't think it really matters at all. I think that there's some law firms where your GPA is going to matter for a while, some of the most competitive the best law firms would be places like, Gibson and Skadden and Latham. Where they're always going to look at your GPA and so forth even after four or five years, but the majority of law firms are more concerned about experience. If you went to a top 20 law school in Texas and it was four years ago, most law firms will not care. They're more concerned with your experience. We're more concerned about the quality of the firm your coming from, and practice area after a few years out. It's not really that important anymore.
