If no attorney at your firm had heard about Pepperdine, you should take aim for the door, pack your *&^%, and run as fast as you can.

Transferring / Re: Transfer stats to HLS?

I'm going to say your chances are pretty good then. But again, make it clear why you want to transfer, that always puts you a head above those who are just looking to climb the rankings.

You seem to have some unrealistic expectations to the value of just having a law degree. Nobody is going to care about your JD or LLM if you're actually going to be an accountant, it has no effect whether you will be on top or on bottom of the market. It will only be wasted money and time.

Paralegal at Wachtell or Cravath or SulCrom. Just as obvious examples. :)

Because we're doing class room exams, where you can't just put the question into WestLaw and get a perfectly phrased answer back to copy/paste into your essay.

Go away, idiot.

read my old posts if you're that determined to know where I attend. If 100% would pass, then why do they need a curve to pass at a 50% or sometimes even below?

100% would.

Nice try on promoting your bullshido law degree, bro.

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

All you need to sit for the bar in CA is the ability not to drool on your keyboard. If you can string together coherent sentences; bonus points.

Uhm, considering you can't have a class action suit unless the class is large enough to make joinder impracticable, yes.

Minority and Non-Traditional Law Students / Re: Part-Time JD Program?

1) No, I'm not.
2) That's the challenge, isn't it? But you take less credits than a full time student, so can't be that hard. I managed to be drunk 6 days a week for three years in law school, I'm sure you'll find a way to work :p
3) Yes, you can be on law review, at least at all schools I'm familiar with.
4) There's little, if any, reason to have an internship during the school year anyway.
5) Job prospects should be about the same, no reason why it wouldn't be. You've learned the same things, you just took 4 years learning it instead of 3.

I'm not quite sure I agree with that, rankings really do matter. It sucks, but it does.
