i've had it. it's actually pretty small and is pretty tasty.

Too bad PI jobs are just as competitive to land as market rate firm jobs, and the school you went to plays just as much of a part in your attractiveness as a candidate.

you can't argue with the commitment to PI that one person would show by going to that school. i'm not saying they'd be the better candidate, but they'd be committed to it.

From the PCL site:  "Thus, if you want to be a prosecutor or a corporate attorney, don't waste our time applying; there are plenty of other schools out there for you!"

Gold, Jerry!  Pure gold!

EDIT:  And more --  "If you have read all this stuff and still want to find out more, contact us."

Oh wow.

i think i get what they are trying to do...and the school is cheap as hell..but...ugh. that's about all i can say...ugh.

The more I look into it, the harder it is to rip on them though.  They're up front in that if you go to that school, you are NOT going to make money.  Their purpose is to educate public interest attorneys, organizers, etc.  The school's not accredited by the ABA but at least you can take the Cal Bar, and it's cheap enough that you can do public interest stuff.

yeah, that seems to be the gist of it. i have to give them credit for that. i wonder if anyone didn't do their research on the place and went there with the intention of making money? i would still say cooley is worse than this place because this place isn't trying to hide anything. cooley attempts to say it's the bee's knees (yeah, i said it).

Nope.  Not by a long-shot.  People's College of Law wins that honor.  The students are obligated to do all of the janitorial duties and landscaping upkeep of the school.

MAINTENANCE OF THE SCHOOL - ACCOUNTABILITY HOURS - "Accountability" refers to the requirement that each student be accountable to the PCL collective by contributing 40 hours of work per school year to school operations.  The administrative office works with the Accountability Committee on assigning tasks to students and ensuring that work requirements are fulfilled.  If you have a skill that can contribute to the school, you can earn accountability time for it.  i.e., are you a carpenter, a typist, a web-master, a grant-writer, a fund-raiser?

depaul has been moving down in the rankings, with loyola staying about the same and kent moving up.

/jsia

depaul has moved up since last year, kent and loyola both dropped.

Honestly, there's not much difference in the rankings between the 3 lower Chi schools. Not enough to make any one stand way out ahead at least.

don't tell that to the rest of this board.
