There is a similar discussion going on at abovethelaw.com for all those who can't get enough of this one.

I think dewayne_wayne's last point is valid. In fact, I was thinking about this same thing last night. More law students = more affordable legal services. While I agree with this from an economic standpoint there is still the issue of the quality of legal services. If these attorneys are not competent (not saying that all T3 and T4 grads are not competent) then those people who need public legal services are not getting effective representation. In other words, they are f***ed.

On the other hand, if these attorneys were eliminated from the marketplace, then people who desperately need services of that sort would have absolutely no low-cost option. In other words, they will be doubly-f***ed.

As with most segments of our society, the poor get shafted. This is no different.

Yes, it is much better to have the "poor" get T4 graduates with only minimal competence representing them....

My "TTT" just earned the second highest first time passage rate for the Feb bar. That on top of a nearly 90% pass rate last July. But hey, stick to those reports and rankings, it'll make you feel good. You may have to take the bar 2 or 3 times, but at least you'll have "prestige".

What state bar?

My points are valid.  You wouldn't want someone that scored in the 40th percentile on the MCAT and with a 2.5 operating on you would you?  Why would you want that same person handling a major legal issue in your life?

General Board / Re: Summer starters have an "unique" advantage?

I don't know of any top law school that offers a summer start program.  That being said, it is highly unlikely that these folks are getting big firm gigs after they are done with 1L.  The only "reputable" school I know off-hand that has a summer start program is Iowa, and we all saw what they did to themselves in the comment section of abovethelaw.com after the most recent rankings surfaced and their drop was made known.

a $60k job is not something to be proud of after spending 3 years of your life in law school.  The above posts aren't full of *&^%, they are reality.  The problem is, T3/T4 students want smoke blown up their asses, they don't want reality.

It's not about being arrogant, it's about not believing that everyone should be entitled to become a lawyer just like no one has entitlement to an MD.

No. TTT schools are bad. They have horrible job prospects for everyone outside of the top 10%, conceal their real employment statistics from students and cost practically as much as good schools (unless the TTT is a state school).  They also are usually highly competitive and offer an inferior educational product. True, TTTT's are worse but that is not saying much because they should be shut down by the ABA.

TITCR = This is the credited response

Distance Education Law Schools / Re: New College of Law

That and the fact that your "diploma" isn't worth *&^% in the real world.......  T3 grads have enough trouble finding jobs let alone a non accredited toilet bowl.

General Board / Re: Doing criminal background checks on westlaw
« on: April 06, 2008, 11:14:09 AM »
Law schools get a blanket rate, at least mine does.  If you are billed per use, that really sucks for you.  I thought every student had unlimited use included in tuition.

1L job search / Re: bad ECONOMY = bad FALL 2008 OCIs?

My thoughts are still like the above poster stated, obviously the firm wants you to believe that you are a huge investment with no profit margin.... That doesn't make it true.
