lawstudent, everyones their own little genius... ::)

Actually, most people in law school are rather mediocre, with a good portion of the class being plain stupid. There's a few people who are very smart, few if any I'd actually call a genius.

and they failed to take the initiative to persue it untill it worked, why?
It sounds like the ROTC one got it because he knew how to keep trying.

I have to say, I admire your knowledge of recruitment practices. In fact, you only needed to know two very superficial facts about someone before you could completely nail down why one person got hired and another didn't. Awesome.

Law School Admissions / Re: Any Recommendations Would Be Helpful!!

Work on your LSAT, you really should be having a 170 as a goal. Worry about schools once you know what your actual LSAT score is, making guesses right now doesn't really serve any purpose.

That is a lot different than saying nobody could acheive 6 figures in their whole life. I'm sorry if I got a bit rude, though.

Sure, but let's be honest, this is an internet forum, not a debate competition, I'm allowed to exaggerate for effect :p

You're an idiot. What magic credential would a secretary have over a licensed lawyer if applying for the same gig?

Look, I've kinda caught on to the fact that you think you know everything better than everyone else. It's cool, I don't really care. As for getting employed at a firm like Wachtell, yeah, they'd take a 4.0 college grad over a Cooley JD grad any day of the week. That's just the way this business works. On a more general note, law firms do not generally want people with JDs as a paralegal ever, for obvious reasons. You're about 2 years away from getting a major wake-up call, we'll talk then.

And no, I'm not an idiot, I'm actually very smart.

and if a cooley grad applied to one of those paralegals (when no one else would hire them) you think the company wouldn't be shitting themselves with excitment to have a lawyer and not just a secretary doing that job?

That's exactly what I'm saying, yes.

So your saying that 199 out of 200 people that graduate from Cooley don't crack 6 figures in their life. ??? ???

At the same relative point in their career? I doubt it, but I don't really care as I'm not at Cooley.

3.3 / 25% percent is very unlikely.

Just out of curiosity how much do these paralegals make. I doubt it is more than 99.5% of grads from Cooley.

For 2009, I believe their paralegals started on $105,000 before bonuses.

just because you can't keep up dosn't make the facts less valid. Like you said "who would want the accountant to go to court?" Answer, no one who dosn't want him in jail for it. That being said, you if you have to go to court you have to pick between yourself or a lawyer, not a CPA,MBA,etc.

But we were talking about people working as accountants. Not people working as lawyers. If you want to do brain surgery, it'd be helpful to have an MD, that's equally irrelevant to this discussion. I'm starting to see why you're 1) at Cooley and 2) think Cooley is a good school.
