Now THAT story is just priceless!!!! Classic even. So Sands, tell me how exactly does pro bono work? Are you assigned? Do you get to choose? How difficult is it balancing pro bono with your regular workload?
Not as funny as stuffwhitepeoplelike:
It depends on what you ultimately see yourself doing with a legal degree. If you're aiming for government work or biglaw, it might be worth reevaluating your desire to go to law school. If you want to open your own practice, it might be worth it to go tier 4. A job is never guarenteed (outside of T14), so it's good that you're asking these questions now before you've spent three years of your life and $150,000. I'm sure others will have better insight into this decision-making process, but that's my $.02. Good luck.
i have to agree with this. i guess i'm coming from a different mind set i feel that by the time you get to law school you're an adult. you're paying money you want to graduate do what is necessary if that means meeting with profs briefing cases and do remedial stuff that others call "a waste of time" do it. i mean i guess i'm saying grow up. i don't see why any serious student who was good enough to get into law school whatever tier can't graduate. if you need to adjust from UG adjust i mean wtf is so damn difficult about that? worrying about what everybody else is doing, what everybody else thinks, that somebody is gonna think your dumb is just juvenile and childish. what the next man eats doesn't make you ish....your 20 something years old time to put down childish things.
Well said, as usual.
If you are applying to law school and you get IN over the 1000's of other applicants who wanted your seat...why on earth would you NOT do everything in your power to succeed?
This is not the time for the foolishness.
