Anyone who passes the bar can go out and hang up a shingle.
This is what most law students fail to realize.  The vast majority of lawyers are self-employed.

Show me a source with that

I meant this: "My school sucks but we have a top 10 [insert obscure practice here] program."

Well, in this economy...

I assume it has been said in this thread, but...

AF JAG = competitive

I didn't get it with top 40% grades from Tulane.  My resume isn't super military friendly though - filled with entrepreneurial activities.

Credited. Depending on the accessions board, AF JAG has a 7-11% acceptance rate.

Do we bother pointing out that Wisco and Marquette have 100% bar passage in WI because they don't take the bar? It's a degree privilege state. Putz.

And yes.  He said he did poorly and dropped out. 

Someone suggested, if he was originally interested in the military itself rather than JAG, OCS.  I second that.  They'll help pay off his debt and get a Masters, which is the real first step toward his goal of teaching at the collegiate level.

Fool.  Getting a military commission is MUCH more difficult than getting accepted to law school.  It is very competitive.  Nothing in OP's background would indicate he'd have any chance at this at all.

I have to laugh at idiots who think becoming a military officer is a viable fallback after failing in the "real" world.

Are you prior service? Just curious on the basis of your statement.

I only ask b/c I am AF JAG bound once (if) I pass this f-ing bar exam.

Is no one else pissed that the spent the time posting on this thread when OP was an 0L and now he dropped out? Lots of thoughtful advice pissed away.

No.  The thread is over a year old, and it was revived only by OP saying he dropped out per the funny flow chart.  Not sure why a bunch of people started posting...

I know this. I was one of the posters from over a year ago. It was a waste for us who posted when OP was an 0L because it ended up being a totally moot point.
