Regardless of WHY they are going to law school, someone that has been sub-average in LSAT, GPA, and everything else does not deserve to become a lawyer. This argument has come forth many times. Doctors, dentists, and other professionals are limited on how many can be produced per year. Lawyers can destroy a person's life just as these other professionals can. That being said, why should we permitting some sub-average Joe to graduate a horrible TTT or TTTT and then go out and open up a practice? It just isn't right.
The ppl. who "deserve" it are the ones with excellent credentials and get into the better programs.I still think going to a TTT or especially a TTTT is a bad decision. Emt is the exception and he will happily admit it, why do you think he transferred out once he kicked ass at UD?There is nothing good that will come from a UD degree and mounds of debt.
I sense a US News Rankings Credibility debate looming overhead. Whether you want to admit it or not, T14 and T20 schools have far more options than any other law school graduate on average. That is yet another reality.However, I sense your chip on your shoulder will lead to beating this horse until it is long past dead.
Oh rest assured, I have no chip on my shoulder. And you're not suggesting that we pare the number of law schools down to 20, are you? If not, how many would you suggest we have and how do you propose to draw that line?
