What do you want to do with the JD though? Jury duty inspired you? Sounds like you have watched too much law and order. I mean, odds are you aren't ever going to get into a reputable prosecutor's office with crap grades and how do you plan on paying off your law school loans with a low paying job?
Finally, I'll be honest. A lawyer is a powerful profession and I don't think that people should be represented by failures. You had your chance and blew it. Move on. Any school that lets you back is a joke anyway.
I mean your friends thought you should have your grade changed? Give me a break. This is law school, not kindergarten.
Seriously, I don't think people read what others write and choose to answer based on what they think instead of what is.
So, I'll answer:
"What do you want to do with the JD though?"
Criminal defense work.
"Jury duty inspired you?"
Yes. My father is a lawyer. I grew up with it and decided to ignore it. Jury duty opened my eyes to the beauty of the legal profession that I long ignored.
"Sounds like you have watched too much law and order."
I hate law and order. Watched it once and thought it was boring.
"I mean, odds are you aren't ever going to get into a reputable prosecutor's office with crap grades and how do you plan on paying off your law school loans with a low paying job?"
Well that's good. I don't want to be a prosecutor, though if I wanted to I could because my dad knows every prosecutor in my area and is close friends with the States Attorney (who has been to my house for dinner). Another thing that I guess needs explanation is that I won't have 'crap grades' if I get back in - I would start over as a new student and believe I could get decent grades.
"how do you plan on paying off your law school loans with a low paying job?"
First, I don't plan on getting a low paying job. I have a decent paying one waiting for me that would evolve into a partnership in less than 5 years. Second, my law school loans will end up being less than $50k. So don't sweat how I'm going to pay that off.
"A lawyer is a powerful profession and I don't think that people should be represented by failures."
This illustrates your youth and inexperience with life. Some of the world's greatest successes failed, and many many times.
Isaac Newton did poorly in grade school.
Beethoven's music teacher once said of him "as a composer he is hopeless."
When Thomas Edison was a boy his teacher told him he was too stupid to learn anything.
F.W. Woolworth got a job in a dry good store when he was 21, but his employer would not let him wait on customers because he "didn't have enough sense."
Michael Jordan was cut from his high school basketball team.
A newspaper editor fired Walt Disney because he had no good ideas.
Winston Churchill failed the 6th grade.
Steven Spielberg dropped out of high school in his sophomore year. He was persuaded to come back and placed in a learning disabled class. He lasted a month and dropped out of school forever.http://www.americanchronicle.com/articles/26591
Failure makes you stronger and teaches lessons. I know far too many incredible and successful lawyers who almost failed out of law school, took the bar 5 times, etc.
"You had your chance and blew it. Move on."
Now you're just being a male private part.
"Any school that lets you back is a joke anyway."
That's a bizarre statement. Virtually every law school has a readmission policy in place. Likely, even yours. This is an 'elitist' argument, and one based on your personal opinions, not fact.
Thanks for sharing, but I'm not really interested in an argument over whether I should be readmitted or if I am wasting my time. Unlike the person you THOUGHT you were talking to, I've already made up my mind. I will be readmitted. If you want to help, feel free. If you want to discourage me from trying, you will fail and will be wasting your effort. So do us both a favor and ignore the thread if your only response is going to be that I should give up.
You will have more time to leave comments on other threads and I won't have to skip over your posts on this thread or form an opinion about you and your level of maturity and understanding of the world.
