I weep, because I need to do an intervention. First, I hope no one cosigned for your loans. Second, if you are not hired for $135,000 then it is time to consider Maxwell or Newhouse for a second degree. Third, if you are hired then you can play third year while the other little oranges are sweating it out but do not sit around them.
For the 95% who are sitting around with no serious people to help them out, in ten years the college of law may remember that it reflects poorly on the university to have people working in menial jobs and decide it is time to find you a position or tell you that need another form in order to sit for a bar.
Remember, the employment statistics coincide with the grace period on your loans. The office does not break this down into actual positions. In other words, are you waiting tables at Denny's or working as a bouncer? Syracuse could not possibly care less just as long as you check a box and pay up. You did not pay any less for your education.
You know what is great--when the Denny's person passes the bar exam and the $135,000 associate does not pass it.
You are paying too much for this type of incompetence. Ask every alum, how many times it took you to pass the bar exam. 5 times? 3 times? This waxes and wanes.
Go up to career services. Ask whoever is there,"how much are you being paid to sit and do nothing?" If you are the 95% who are not being helped professionally , your response to this person should be,"I want your job."
For whatever reason, this little college of law thinks that it is acceptable to act in this manner. Entire careers are destroyed as a result of this behavior. This is professionally irresponsible, and it is just short of a scam.
We have the worst alumni group in the history of this university. They are an excellent example of corporate psychos. It reflects poorly on our university.
Finally, orange. It is the color of prison garb, and it is beckoning some of those alums. Go sit. I will be the one with the cheshire cat grin, because I know who is going to go. It is only going to take one good polygraph to start the hunt. "F" is for felony. The race is on. Who can find a felony?
