I plan on starting in January. I am applying to STCL. Ok it's a 4th tier, but I don't plan on being unemployed either. I plan on being self-employed. That is the whole reason I am going to law school. All I need to do is pass the bar. So mesirow your contention that All or Most schools that start in January are "Bad" is wrong. Bad for whom? Not bad for me. Since I don't want to work in a firm anyway I really don't care what the employment rate is for my school of choice. What diff. does it make if my JD has Harvard or STCL on it? Either way it will be hanging in a small office somewhere and the clients I can attract probably won't care one way or the other as long as I do a good job with their case. Just wanted to throw in that everything is a matter of prospective. Even if I got into Harvard (highly unlikely) I would go to STCL because I want to start sooner, it's cheaper, and I probably could not convince my wife to move up north.
