3L job search / Re: Studying for the BAR, huge DEBT, no JOB, WHAT DO DO?
« on: February 05, 2010, 04:46:11 PM »
Unfortunately, over the last couple of years it has become increasingly common for the number of law school grads in a similar situation. Five years ago the law school I graduated from had over a 90% employed rate 6th mths after graduation.  Now, I have noticed that my law school has deleted their percentage stats altogether.  I've talked to another that is graduating from a law school similarly ranked as LSDSL (in the 50's) and it's getting worse: more people do not have a job than not, which was better than even a couple of years ago.

So you want to talk stats: I would say unless you are graduating from a top 25 or highly connected, there's about a 50% chance that the person sitting next to you is just about an unemployed and stressed out as you are.

3L job search / JAG -- Vision Restrictions
« on: February 05, 2010, 04:09:07 PM »
SOMEBODY HELP!!:  I'm was about to apply to the JAG office and I was getting very excited about the idea of being an attorney and serving my country at the same time, but then I saw the vision restrictions.  I was hoping you or somebody you know can tell me realistically what chances I have of being selected (assuming my interview goes well/they like what they see professionally and personally).  The answer is not online. I have looked at all of the documents.  I need somebody to tell me if a condition like mine is ever waived (it's under the "waivable" list but I have never heard of anybody being waived--I've known 1 person being rejected because of it but that was 9 yrs ago) or maybe it is, but I shouldn't get my hopes up.  I just really want to prepare myself.  Also, can I increase my chances of being selected if I get lasik/pkr surgery or does it not matter considering my pre-operative prescription is so high (this is also unclear on the website and falls under the "waivable" category).  Please contact me. I would really appreciate some insight.  PS: My prescription is -10, both eyes, correctable to 20/20 in one and 20/40 in other eye w/contacts
