What honestly makes you think that as soon as you have a JD you can hold your own against anybody? The fact that you think what you learn in law school is the RAP kind of shows how inadequate your education is. How much preclusion did you learn? Choice of law? pre-emption?
but come on, you don't think that the people who you work with/for matter at any point? Not who your professors are, not who your bosses are, not who your co-workers are?
Dude what the f**ck is the matter with you Peaches?
QuoteDude what the f**ck is the matter with you Peaches? Yeah, knocking him is sort of low-hanging fruit. Sorry that bad things happened to him this year; that sucks. Sorry if I come off as a huge ass. He still doesn't know what the hell he's talking about though.And, Hugh Jass, we spent about 10 minutes going over RAP and res ipsa. The curriculum, philosophy, and style of teaching are completely different at the T14. We all learn a few basic things and take some similar courses in the first year, but after that it's a different ballgame.
I just went on to JDUNDERGROUND.COM (another law school discussion website, similar to this site). I read a few posts, and had enough. There were so many posts, particularly, trashing T3 and T4 law schools (i.e., for the New York area, majority of the posts were "Touro is *&^%," "Hofstra is *&^%," etc.). What possesses people to post such things? I see posts such like that on this board as well (i.e., "Cooley's the worst school," etc.)Is the only reason to go to law school to work at a big, fancy law firm? Does no one take into account that a person might go to a T3 or T4 because he or she received a scholarship? Or that a person doesn't want to work at a big firm (and not be miserable)? Or a person wants to work for themselves? What if someone wants to work in the public sector?I apologize for this little rant, but I had to address the issue. I know it's the internet, and people naturally express beliefs that they would not otherwise express in person, but still. Too many pathetic elitists! And to think that these people, either pre-law or law students, will one day represent the interests of future clients, corporations, or a state, is very disturbing.Oh well.
I would say that considering that most of the top schools offer much better public interest placements and loan forgiveness programs, you probably would be a lot better off there without the scholarship.
