You guys are all worked up in this thread........use that pre law prep plan and CHILL!!!!!!!
It doesnt matter how in love with the law you are...law school is designed to have this affect (according to a family member who is a law prof/admissions board director) because it is the best weeding out method they have after the admission process...hence many schools 30-50% drop out rate for 1L's.
I do suggest however, that come the end of January after our first semester is over and we get our marks back, posters such as GA Krista, JeffJoe, dta, Findendeaux (sorry about the spelling) and you can come back and share your experiences.
QuoteBy that time we will be thoroughly jaded and bitter. We plan to write a diatribe on the evils of law schools and lawyers, which will be called Everything You Need To Know To Hate Law School and will be offered on Amazon at a price of $125,000. It will cost as much as law school and will come with a nice diploma for a JOD, (Jerked-Off Doctorate).Quote JeffJoe....don't be a cantankerous old man! hahahaha.
I'm going to Whittier in the fall and the last time I looked it had one of the highest attrition rates, sitting right around 30%. I've NEVER heard of one over that, certainly not 50%. And its true, they let in people other schools would never give a chance, but those that make the cut and stay do just as well as those at any other comparable school. Someone's gotta give a chance to those who typically wouldn't get in law schools, I bet quite a few have turned out to be very successful. I always like the underdog stories!
