There are people that have over 1000 posts on this site.  Get a life!

The same "big law" snobs say the same thing about all "4th tier" schools...  horrible attrition rates.  Sure.  You accept people who might or might not make it... some of them, ob course, fail out.  You get their money, you build your school... get over it.

Also, you get no job.  Bulls**t.  You have to work hard at these schools (like any school).  Pass the bar... make law review if you can.  Jobs are available.  They wont be "big law" jobs paying 125k a year so it would be smart not to run up a huge tab attending....

But... to add to the topic: I am thinking of attending TJ.  I have not received word of $$ yet, so I dont know.  Their new building will be open in 2010 which is exciting.  Big library.  Some great profs. 

I'm with you on this one. For some reason I always had a feeling that posting in a site like this would inevitably lead you to come across ignorant over-achievers who enjoys putting other people down. If Isisdreamer is able to create a post that advocates TJSL let her be, I don't think any top 20 prospective students should have any business reading something t3 prospective students are interested in.

hi guys, I apologize for not checking my own thread that i started, as I have been very busy lately. Thank you for all your guys feedback, and I just want to add to the fact that I got accepted to the part-time program for TJSL for fall of 09 with the deans scholarship. So far though, I've gotten accepted to Western State University and I'm still waiting to hear back from Southwestern because I'm waitlisted there. Chance are, if I get into Southwestern, I will go there instead of TJSL but whatever happens happens. Excluding Southwestern, I think that it's a no-brainer attending TJSL over Western State and I just wanted to get to know some people that I'm going to law school with.

Just in case you hadn't noticed, the OC is notably one of the top areas in the country that are packed with practicing attorneys. So if you go to Chapman and decide to live there and ultimately practice there, good luck because there is going to be lots of competition.

Obama2, thank you for your words of kindness. It seems as if some people's egos are very big here, so it's tough finding people who actually aren't jerks

I'm guessing that's not a lot at all... man this is worrying me a bit, maybe I should just try to transfer out after the first year

Thomas Jefferson / TJSL Entering Student 2009

Hey guys, I got accepted to Thomas Jefferson and I think I'm most likely to go there. I was wondering if anybody else got accepted and is planning on attending this school? Although I haven't heard exactly the best things about this school, I was hoping that a student at TJSL can help me answer some questions i have about the school.

so is TJ really this bad? I mean it's the only school i got accepted to so far, I got rejected from whittier law school, california western, and waitlisted at western state...

Hey guys, it's my first post! I just joined this board in hope to get some support/recommendations for law school. So fr, my expectations of support has vastly dropped due to this thread. I was accepted to Thomas Jefferson School of Law and it completely ails me to see so many people scorn upon this school. I hope that all negative feedback from this school is wrong, since it's the only school I've been accepted to so far (I mean, I've gotten rejected to Western State, Whittier Law School, and California Western... shoot). I hope there's other lower tier members in this board who can actually give me some insightful comments and suggestions.
