budlaw, if you find this site to be beneath you, then why is the apparently idiotic rambling posted here, so under your skin? i urge you, please, to be a little more magnanimous with us poor retards - maybe you could find that in your heart if you switched from crack to decaf. in any case, i look forward to working for you one day, oh great one. ugh, what a putz.

Umm... I already used the decafe line on this thread so if you could not repeat it that would be great. Thanks.-> This post is sure to increase my -5 reputation score.

I can only tell you why I'm going to law school and I think it's obvious, for the chicks!


Obvious sarcasm.  Who would go to law school for the chicks?

Relax, you did all that work, you'll do fine.  I didn't outline a case the last two months and just skimmed the cases in the 10 minutes before class and there is no way I failed any finals. Though I don't think there are any A's in my future. Switch to decafe.

So if he had more posts he could call her a psycho? What kind of moronic reasoning is that?

I agree, I dont know how you can relate the number of posts to the legitimacy of an opinion on here.  Care to explain your reasoning? just curious to see your rational.

Thanks


Yes!!!

With 3 posts to your name, you shouldn't be calling anybody anything.

We now have confirmation.  She is a psycho.

So if he had more posts he could call her a psycho? What kind of moronic reasoning is that?

And people keep telling this maniac that law review, moot court, etc. is more important. I think she knows that. She just really wants to speak at graduation even though it means nothing, nobody cares, and nobody will remember it but her. She isn't stupid, she's just bizarre.

Many people start at a big firm then move in house with a client.  Some companies may want to hire newbie lawyers but most know that 5 or more years in with a law firm is perfect training plus good connections.  I'd do some research to see what if any difference an MBA makes on getting your foot in the door compared to firm experience.

Maybe I'm wrong but from what I have read there is no way your getting a job as in-house counsel out of law school. The exception being of course if you worked within the corporate field for a few+ years before pursuing your J.D. That is what people have told me and I read it on vault.com.

I agree with what was said about both degrees being somewhat diluted. Also, firms want people committed to the law. They spend time, energy, money, etc. training a young/new attorney. I think having the MBA can be an asset but can also bring your committment to the law into question. Just stuff I have read. Each firm/ situation will be different of course.
