What is the difference between a lawyer and a rooster?

When a rooster wakes up in the morning, its primal urge is to cluck defiance.

Current Law Students / Re: Law Schools To Avoid At All Costs!

I don't know what this dumbass' problem is, but I know people who attended non-ABA accredited law schools in AL and CA who are making six figures. 

yea right ..

Why do people make it seem like it's impossible to make 6 figures from a lower ranked school. Hell - my dad came to this country at 22 years of age with only the clothes on his back. He has had no formal american education, still has a hard time with the english language, and pulls down 6 figres per year. How is that still unreasnoable this day and age? You people must have some lazy ass family if you think it's that hard to make 6 figures if that's your goal, especially with a trade such as law under your belt. It's there for the taking, and you can get it no matter if you finish Harvard or Cooley. Take your insecurities elsewhere.

And to curb all the rants that will follow -- Yes, I'm going to a TTTT, and Yes, it's ok with me, because it fits nicely into my long term goals.

Current Law Students / Re: law review v. subject journal
« on: May 15, 2006, 08:54:48 AM »
At some schools, this is because the selection criteria is different - law review factors in grades and the other journals don't.  But, in general, the profession does have a hierarchy of journal memberships. 

I agree with the above posters claim that Law Review is more prestigious than other journals, but what about schools that offer write-ons a spot on Law Review? Law Review can't be solely about grades unless the school requires a certain class rank to be eligible for a write-on spot?

Current Law Students / Are there any WNEC Law students posting here?
« on: March 20, 2006, 12:04:09 PM »
Does anybody have any first hand experience with the school?

How is the job placement (in Hartford, CT area)?
How would you rank the quality of the professors and administration staff? Are they helpful?
What is your overall impression of the school?
Any experience with extra curriculars? (Review, clinics, clubs?)

Anything else you may wish to share?


I'd love to attend UCONN - it's my alma mater. Unfortunately my LSAT isn't up to par for UCONN. I like WNEC because of the availability of hands-on experience available in clinics and simulations the school offers, especially WNEC's small business clinic, the area of law that most interests me at this point. If I choose to attend WNEC, I wouldn't mind graduating from there since it has a decent rep with some of the larger firms in Hartford, but I will jump at the chance to transfer to UCONN if my class standing warrants at the end of 1L.

Thanks for everyone's input, but can I get any first hand comments from students attending or that have graduated from WNEC Law?


Thanks once again for your response. I appreciate your input!


Thanks for your candid response.

Just out of curiosity, can you substantiate your statement? What is your personal experience with the school? Where do you draw your observations from? Any additional insight will be appreciated.

I was accepted to and am considering attending WNEC Law. I live in CT so I presume I'll have a decent shot on job placement depending on how I preform in law school, but with this aside, what are people's impressions about the school? Any insight would be greatly appreciated, especially if anyone has any experience with the school's clinics, simulations and networking opportunities.


Incoming 1Ls / Do you use a PDA
« on: May 21, 2006, 11:05:41 AM »
So do you guys use PDA's to keep track of your lives? I'm looking into getting one for LS, and was seeking suggestions on a good, overall good performing and capable PDA. Thanks.
