"We've already got your money!"
« on: October 02, 2005, 08:33:13 PM »
I couldn't believe a Professor would say this to students.  I've only been in Roger Williams law school for 6 weeks yet this Prof had the nerve to say this.  What do they have to gain by saying this? Is this an intimidation tactic all law schools use to make students study harder?

Umm...context?

"I want to kill you!" - with a knife in your hand and bulging eyes.
or
"I want to kill you!" - playing mario kart and losing to your sibling.

Law school is nothing more than a business. Especially when you talk about T4s -- only half of their admits will ever become lawyers.

is this a real fact? do the other 50% even use their degrees, or just give up hope of ever being a lawyer?

It is carved in stone above the admissions office at every T4. The other 50$ end up as bartenders or librarians at law libraries.
