WII, no one is going to divulge all sorts of private information, on a public forum, that some employers are perfectly aware of.

You don't need to divulge private information. Just find a good job open to a average tier 2 grad.

Don't forget to take the Temple challenge!


http://www.lawschooldiscussion.org/prelaw/index.php/topic,99398.0.html

I don't know of anyone that's had a problem finding a job aside form those people that haven't tried to get a job and those that did terribly academically. Also, Temple's OCI is not limited to the top 10-15% and is open to everyone. It's true that Temple might not be for you if you're seeking nothing but $$$$, but coming out of Temple with good-moderate performance will get you a quality job with good pay. Like anything, if you work hard and take some initiative you'll be successful.



Great, then you should have no problem finding good jobs open to the average temple grad. Make sure your response includes employer name, description of job, compensation and contact information. Just list one or two (I'm sure you'll find hundreds, lol.)

Also, http://www.law.temple.edu/servlet/RetrievePage?site=TempleLaw&page=Employer_Career_Planning_Stats (why doesn't it list the percentage who got OCI jobs? I wonder . . . )

UNC isn't tier 2.  Take the US News challenge.

Thanks for that post, Knight.  Maybe some of that arrogance will get them a reality check again with another 10 spot drop.  They sent their students a PDF about "Why we will not drop again in the rankings."  If they care so much, their recruiting effort should show it.

Right. You can still take the challenge. It should be easy for you, since UNC is tier 1. lol.

Also, isn't it odd that your school doesn't report any salary information? http://www.law.unc.edu/careerservices/default.aspx Doesn't that make you suspicious?

It would if it were my school.  Since it isn't, I don't care.  You should have spent more time researching the fact that it wasn't tier 2 instead of poking around on their employment page.  Or you could have just read my post with decent comprehension and maybe then you could have just avoided this entire embarrassment for yourself.

yoyo, are your initials AC?  If so, you should probably be a bit more careful about the kinds of things you say on the internet. :)

No my initials aren't "AC" but thanks anyway.
