Big law is what I hear people talk about, yet these morons don't know jackshit about Big Law.

Incurring little-to-no-debt on financial aid is what these law firms will look towards. They will say, "how the hell did you do it?" the response, "i am one damn good lawyer." Instant job.

Like I've been saying, my friend said the LSAT is similar to a practice test. She also mentioned that if I were to do good on an old LSAT before they made it easier, I would do good on the actual LSAT.

T4 schools are bottom-of-the-barrel. I am glad most students are going to T4's because they did not cut it for a T3 or T1. This means, a person with good academic standing from either a T1 or T3 would be getting a job over a T4.

High debt lawyers and the military? No wonder you guys cannot find common ground. A high debt lawyer is one who does not have many options outside of his field, but even then, it is easy to generate less debt, maximize profitability, and garner a sense of "don't give a damn," within the legal world that will land you a job. If I fail at law, which is like a 2 percent chance, I can go to medical school. My folks have paid up most of my undergrad, so that leaves me with an abundance of loan money I can take out in law school.

Here is a tip: when in law school, take out a 50k + loan, you can almost get them if you look for one, try a bank but you have to have good credit and a co-signer (my parents have extremely good credit, and I haven't messed up my credit, so it would work), after that take the 30k of the 50k and buy some commodities that you have studied and know will be good in a bearish market.After you sell the commodities at a capital, not loss, you will have more than 50k, say you sell each above their original 'x' price you bought them for and had enough to cover the other variables, you now have more money possibly tipping on 170k. Then you take a portion of the 170k, say 65k as you need more than 100 to have entrance into a trade scene. You could possibly, with adequate study time and knowing the markets, turn that 65 into 300k, depending on whether you have good patience and risk management. Anyway... That is all the advice I will give you.

By making profit in Law School, I will become an instant millionaire once I am out. Not only that, if I loose money over the course of a year, then I can make it back as I have an adequate stream of money called Financial Aid. Idiots go into debt in law school.

Choosing the Right Law School / Re: Nova Law School- Any good??

thanks for your response

i think you would be right if a person wants a job in big law being stuck in a library for 80 hours a week.

Not me i want to work in the public defenders office or da's office so im sure most graduates of those four schools would not want to work in local government for 30-40k a year but i would to get the experience for a few years then open up a office.

I reject the notion that one would not be successful unless they go to the "top four" schools in florda. I have a friend that goes to famu and interns for a lawyer that practices criminal law in orlando and graduated from barry. He makes 250k a year handling violation of probation and other criminal cases.

your right in the sense that going to those top 4 schools would give an individual a leg up in corporate law. But really lets be honest none of the schools in the southeast is no yale. I think for me the best route to go is to find the most cost effective school with a good bar pass rate so i have no debt. I have another friend that graduated from hofsta has 120k in debt and has not found a job after 9 months.

You are completely clueless. You said you don't want to stuck in a library 80 hours a week.. well the truth is in horrible schools you actually have to study more because everyone is competitive as hell. Most of them realize they have to be at the top of the class to get any jobs at all after graduation. The rest are trying to be at the top because they are trying to transfer. If you think going to a low rated school means you don't have to study as much you're going to end up dropping out.

You also might want to do research on public service jobs. They are NOT full of third tier law grads. Believe it or not there are tons of students at top tier law schools who are trying to be DA's. A lot of the times public service jobs that pay 40k a year are just as competitive as big law jobs.

Your example of a Barry grad is an exception. Terrell Owens went to Tennessee Chattanooga for football, I guess that means other football players from that school can expect to be in the NFL right?

This is the most idiotic post. At most horrible schools, the students tend to be equally horrible. Horrible schools are horrible for a reason. If they were turning out qualified, highly graded students, then the school would not be horrible and would actually be a school that turns out actual professional lawyers.

You obviously don't cut it anymore Kelley. Also, tutor why are you giving out free sessions when others have to pay for it?

I don't need to kill myself. I just needed a day or two to finish up my duties. Yeah, you hate the smart ones alright. Here is a tip, instead of hating them, why not either A) be smart, or B) get out of law?

Wham! Wham!  I love you guys for your passion and energy here.  Though I have to side against sonofapickle because he is so weird and nasty.  If it were not for people like sonofapickle we would never have anything to talk about on LSD so for that...I thank you!
 I must ask, why do you dislike "stupid" people so much?  Is it just lesser intelligence that bugs?  Do poor people bother you?  Do ugly people bother you too?   

I dislike ugly and stupid people as they do not produce smart and beautiful people. Look at the crime statistics, an ugly child is more than likely to be raped by an ugly human. Those are the facts. Ugly children tend to be favored by natural selection because they breed more humans due their ugliness is what gives them a sense of, "this is it, I better breed more children." Smart, pretty people tend to have less babies than an ugly one. Natural selection does not favor pretty and smart people.

He is not me. Being a doctor, on average, pays more than a lawyer from a bigfirm. He is right though, despite Obama's healthcare plan.
