No UDC student is around. They are all looking for jobs ROFL.Gimme a break dude. Regardless of what they say, its a *&^% school and the students there are below average on the LSAT, grades, and anything else.Oh, and that partying excuse... You are a joke. I partied all four years of college and still got my *&^% done. Just because you are retarded, don't blame it on the booze.Good luck with your trash JD. I can give opinion on whatever I want. My ideas are backed by fact. FACT: UDC has a Maryland bar passage rate of 35% when the State's overall passage rate for first time test takers is 71%. That is less than HALF the normal passage rate.FACT: It is considered the bottom of a long list of law schools in the DC metro areaFACT: The NALP Directory only lists ONE on campus interview and that is the office of the DA for DC, and, I hate to break it to you, but the odds are slim to none regarding getting an ADA gig out of that school when you are competing against GULC, GW, and every other big named school that has interest in getting a job as an ADA.Those are the facts. I could list more, but those are more than enough reasons not to go there.
www.lsac.org look at the aba guide to law schools. Look up UDC, click it, and look at the bar information for the passage rate.Regarding how it is a fact that it is at the bottom: It is ranked as such and it is not well respected in the legal community. That is proved by looking at how not one single firm recruits on campus. Its not the idea of the school handing you interviews. Any good firm isn't even going to GIVE you an interview on your own. You miss the point. You might think that prestiege doesn't mean anything but a large chunk of American lawyers do. The business is run on reputation and UDC just doesn't have that reputation. Its a fact. You are not going to have the same job opportunities as I will coming out of GW, or Catholic, or even a third tier like Howard. I will be attending GW Law in the Fall. I am not currently a student. I graduated a bit ago and currently am employed with the federal government in the contracts field. Just because I tell it like it is does not mean I am not mature. I am not going to get in a pissing contest with you. I told you a list of facts and even now you cannot accept them.
You are a lost cause. The information regarding firms recruitment is right on the NALP directory. Do a search. If you want to talk to a UDC student that badly, the smart thing to do would be to call the school and go speak with a few. Oh wait, I forgot, you aren't smart.
What is up with this intense hate of UDC? As far as the bar pass rates are concerned, you all need to look behind the statistic to get the full story. The fact of the matter is that most of the people over the past few years who graduated UDC did not have enough money to take any bar-prep courses. Also they are usually older students with families and other jobs who were not able to devote as much time to studying for the bar as younger students from other law schools.One person said something about going there and being $100,000 in debt after you graduate. That's a stretch. If you are a DC resident then you pay $7000 a year. If not, it's something like $13,000. They also give alot of scholarships from what I hear.UDC is in its infant existance and is getting better each year. To be sure, it is a tier-4 school. Just give it a chance.
