3L job search / Re: Crisis of Faith: Why even pursue this path?

Hahaha I'm totally on the same page as you Jobless Debtor.  Very apt name as well. 

My roommate and I were paired up randomly, but we lucked out and each of us shared a similar view of law school.  We hate it to the bone. Fortunately, this means we get to vent to each other every time something gets on our nerves.  We haven't found a clique of like minded haters at our school like you have, but that's because neither of us know anybody there because we've consciously avoided all contact with the other students.  Our school is full of over achiever assholes who brag about how much time they spent on homework over the weekend.  While I'm sure there are some pretty cool people at our school I don't want to have to wade through the sea of jerk offs to get to know them.  I spend as little time at the school as I can, and when I'm not there I like to pretend I never went to law school.  I've merely been unemployed for the last three years so far as I know.

I agree with your understanding of the law too.  Judicial decisions are nothing more than personal emotional responses dressed up in the garb of "legal reasoning and logic."  Judges are nothing more than mini-autocrats who make rulings based on how they feel.  What a load of crap! 

While law school SUCKS and the job market sucks even worse, I still think being a lawyer will probably be one of the best career paths you can take. So long as you make it into a smaller to mid sized firm.  It'll be a job that allows for personal responsibility and achievement along with a lot of freedom.  While there are numerous scum bag attorneys out there, there are also just as many good ones.  You'll just have to get lucky enough to work in a firm with good people.  My dream job would be working for a small or medium sized labor law firm so I can hang out with all the other communist lawyers out there.  Haha

I'll leave you with this nugget.  My roommate was an infantryman in the Marines who served in Iraq for two tours.  He participated in the initial invasion and took part in the second siege of Fallujah.  As you can imagine his life was not fun at this time.  And taking that into consideration he still thinks law school was the worst three years of his life.  Ha!

I'd say go with one of those other states.  If you have to take a bad job somewhere might as well do it in a place that lets you more easily find work elsewhere in the future.  Who wants to take more than one bar exam anyway?

So I go to a pretty good law school and my OCS posted this site on their Symplicity listings.  It's clearly a scam.  I also love how their pay structure totally incentivizes them to never find you a job.  Has anybody else had their OCS refer them to this bogus service?  It almost seems like our bad OCS is trying to schlep their responsibilities onto a third party service provider as well.
