What do I have to prove that I'm right about lawschool? You want proof, sit in on a class, take an exam. Untill then believe in santa for all I care, give me your homeaddress and I'll show up with the proof.

Further, what evidence do you have that I, or anyone else is wrong?  Anecdotes from your life?  Not credibility.  For that to occur would, you would have to be able to use English at least semi-correctly. 

You believing you are correct because you are a 2L, so what.  There are those here who have actually graduated.  Using your logic, we should all ignore you and take only advice for them.

Lastly, simply doing something does not make you an expert.  I may sing in the shower, but a pop star I am not.  Look at it this way, if you were planning on starting a business, let us say a bank.  Who would you hire as a consultant?  The bank teller who does it all day and scrapes by (you).  Or the scholar with a PhD in economics, a Masters in Finance, and an MBA?  Simply choice using common sense.  Your logic would say the bank teller knows more.

Might want to ask those experts of yours how document review is post graduation.  Ex-military who has killed?  I believe you killed much bacteria while cleaning toilets, scrub

Transferring / Re: What is considered T1?

Wow, that proves some major ignornace. Cooley grads are all over the nation(in large part due to the fact that many live out of state to begin with and commute in on the weekends will zero intent to EVER practice in Michigan), MANY are judges and motivation comes from a desire to prove yourself, not from being ego stroked all day. Plus the pure mathmatics of it from number of grads. Other schools may have "more than most" but not the "largest" (4 campus's and growing, expect 5 within a year or two, and then more after that)

Reviews, Visits, and Rankings / Re: Non-ABA versus ABA

Depends on what state you want to practice in. They tend to be only valid in that state in question that issues them. If you only want to practice in that state and they are cheaper,then there you go. Just don't expect to be able to transfer to another state without at least 5 years practice first(sometimes more and even then you have to prove yourself above and beyond what normal transfering lawyers do)
But yeah if you only want to practice in the state in question, it really is the same minus the price tag. EVERY ABA school started out as state approved only, EVERY one.


BUT make sure they are approved by that states bar, some schools (novus comes to mind) are scams and reconised by no one. Just check with the state bar first, dont take the schools word for it.

But standing arrogantly by your guns when wrong and talking smack about the guy that actually knows what he is talking about is ok?
Yeah, that makes bucket loads more sense.  :'( :-X

So if rankings are based in large part based on the votes of judges, and cooley is spitting out record numbers of lawyers each year flooding the market with them as an increasing percentage of the licensed attorneys and increasing so the standing judges as well, won't the system eventually end up with cooley as #1 simply do to the fact that very soon the vast majority will be cooley grads? The people who cry about wanting to make $160,000 day one tend to be allergic to civil service, cooley grads tend not to have really any other choice according to posters here, so since cooley was created about the same times as the rankings it seems to be all a cooley based conspiracy for global dominance due to a brainwashed society that will buy and/pr kill eachother for whatever $200 shoe a rapping b-ball player wears.

I'm  not saying its not what I expected(although it is an intersting experience) just that its not what EVERYONE else here that isn't in it seems to think it is.

Louiebstef, again thank you for your service and coming to my defense.

Megan, thank you as well for coming to my defense. 

When I hear current law students complain law school is nothing like what they expected, I find it entertaining.  If one can't research what law school is and about, then how can one be trusted to research in law school and beyond?

If you served 20 years and still not in lawschool, you are full of shitt. Go visit the VFW and get a reality check kid.

The post below is from a 20 year military man who is honorable and I am proud to have represent our country.

So mandamus, you have you to say who you are.  Where did you serve?  What law school do you go to?  What is your class rank?

As for the difference between practice and study, I consider myself well studied.  I have worked in a law firm, spoken with current law students, and done what I beleive to be the required research before apllying to law school.  Your negativity manifests your lack of preparation for law school, and thus your lack of qualifications to study, as well as practice, law.

If you worked as a paralegal, then I take it back. That being said most people here keep being confused about the practice of law and the study of law. When someone points it out, they AGAIN go back to trying to explain the PRACTICE, thats like me saying dude there are no sharks in the pool, and someone AGAIN trying to prove that sharks lives in the ocean. There is an insane difference.

As for serving for the OP, STFU, if I want to here a civie cry I'll poke one with a fork. Once again, someone who only THINKS they know on a subject making a post, not in lawschool, never killed a man, but you watch a lot of tv and know people who did, awsome, just plain awsome.

undergrad stuck in a loop, what a suprise.

"but your honor I don't have to obey the law, because the opposing party spelled something wrong"

Let me know really break this down for you, read actual caselaw. Nearly every judge who writes it spells stuff wrong and starts sentences with And or Because and spells Majuana with an H, and uses words like niggardly(blows your mind but its considered ok apparently) So keep crying about your daddies but real life isn't found at the bottom of your bottle.

Enjoy disbarment.
