Not saying a lawyer in general wouldn't seek work there, but if someone has that much ambition, why not take the ambition to get into an ABA school to begin with?
You have got to be kidding, right? DL students have ten times more ambition, drive and experience than your average 23 year old ABA law school student. You should stop drinking that ABA Kool Aid, next you will be telling me DL students go to DL schools because they can't get into a ABA school or are lazy?
People choose DL for a number of reasons including:
1. They have a full-time job;
2. They are precluded by geography from attending a ABA school.
3. They have family responsibilites like children or elderly parents to take care of;
4. They can't afford it.
Someone who cannot cut it academically at a ABA school is not going to pass the FYBE or the California Bar.
The whole point of this exercise is that once DL students pass the bar and begin their successful careers as attorneys they are denied for no good reason the same opportunities ABA graduates receive regardless of their merit. We are looking opportunities here.
