Current Law Students / Re: Anyone know about the 5 year requirement?

how is the level of "hard" judged, is it by the level that pass and if wouldn't the fact that they let more people sit it dilute those figures significantly?

It's judged by talking to people who have taken it. Perhaps surprisingly to you, a large majority of practicing attorneys have more than one bar license.

so "graduate" then come get an LLM from the real deal. It'll put the frosting on the poo and make it look like a chococlate moose pie when we're done. It's not too late.

As if LLM's aren't worthless enough if they're from a good school :p

:D is just posting flames. Don't pay him any attention.

Yeah, not taking him all that serious, but not like there's anything better to do? ;)

Any reason to think you'd do significantly better if you try it again? Northwestern is a fine school, and it's perfectly possible to get into academia there. It's not HYS, but it's not like the options aren't available.

try a semster at the real deal, we'll put the smarts back in your head for you.   8)
see you next term newbie.

If only that would work.

Yeah, sounds like a great deal. Despite that I'm 2 weeks from graduating a good law school, I should try to transfer down to a tier 4 school and see if I can cut it there. Sounds brilliant. You actually do think Cooley is good, don't you? This isn't an act?

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.
