Not as much as they used to but there are still a few of us around.

What did happen here? It seems like even as recently as a year ago there were way more people posting.

Still around, still posting. But I would like to think the decrease in posts has to due with the vast responses to common questions we have already done....

As we discussed in another thread, I think it mainly has to do with the emphasis placed on TLS.  Pre-laws LOVE to talk about making 6-figure salaries in Biglaw as if that's the lottery or something, when in reality (A) most lawyers don't make that and (B) even if you do make $160k/yr, it doesn't mean you're rich.  But I digress.  My point is, those folks migrated en masse to TLS a few years back and have been there ever since.

Just remember this: the National Enquirer is one of the biggest selling periodicals in the nation. People love salaciousness, gossip and immaturity, all of which are available in spades at TLS and most other law school related sites.

I didn't know about this site when I was applying to law school, and I wish I had. There is some great advice here, beyond "don't go" and "re-take the LSAT."

Great post Maintain nice reference to the inquirer it is unfortunate how  exaggerated and extreme stories in many areas of life prevail.

I used to bounce between the so called 24hour "news" networks just to see in a single breath the "this is illegal" and "this is a godsend" on a topic. "Obama can't win, he wants to kill us all" "Republicans can't win, and want to kill us all"

It is to bad journalism has become what it is, but the bottom line is  to make profit and in this day and age you can find anyone you want to agree with you. The 60 year old white males watch Fox News who think the world's falling apart. College Kids watch the Daily show to think they know everything and are smarter than 60 year olds watching fox news.

U.S. News Ranking and World Report does the same thing their job is to make a profit not provide an accurate guideline for various law school, hospitals, or other items.

Perhaps one day people will actually want more in depth analysis, but until that day comes and people are content to stay in their bubbles were everyone agrees with them media outlets have no incentive to deliver quality journalism and people are informed through Comedy Central and Fox News.
