I love the input. Its much appreciated!!I understand that USD and other California schools will be competing hard for job placement in such an ideal environment like San Diego. Having said that, asusming I attend Cal Western, is there anything I can gear up for/mindset I can take on, or any other advice regarding myself trying to have an edge with a JD from Cal Western over graduates with more prestigious degrees?
Yikes, I just spent roughly 30 minutes reading through this entire thread! However, I'm not sure why I bothered reading Ninja's posts- I'm disturbed by the fact that someone attending a Tier 2 law school can act so childish and insecure. He wasted time he could have devoted to studying and instead reverted to a worse than high school mentality by putting down random strangers on the internet. Ninja, you must have been tormented in grade school.Anyway, I'm going to Thomas Jefferson this fall (despite the negative remarks about the institution from people who know nothing about the law school). The new campus is going to be amazing, and I'm extremely excited! I found the latter posts on this thread very helpful- so thank you to everyone who gave input! I'll be sure to start networking from day 1.
My purchasing decision? I'm actually going to Thomas Jefferson on a scholarship.Ninja, these posts ARE childish and out of pure insecurity. Anyone in law school should be able to figure that out.But oh well, that's your problem. I feel sorry for you.Plus, stop acting like FSU is of Harvard caliber. You're not that "better" than the rest of us.

You're not that "better" than the rest of us.Still, you make your JD bed and get to lay in it, even if it costs you less. Scholarships won't save you from shitlaw.I, unlike you, am in law school, so save the "anyone in law school" lines for another few months, you ain't there yet.Any amount of insecurity and childishness you're "detecting" is simply coming from the projection of your own decisions about where to attend school. Don't feel sorry for me, I go to one of the three best schools in Florida while you'll be going to the third best school (and a stand alone school at that) in San Diego. If anyone needs some sympathy, it's not me.I never said FSU was of Harvard caliber (our athletics are clearly superior ), but compared to TJ, it might as well be Harvard. And it's "You're not that much "better" than the rest of us" or "You're not that "better" than the rest of us". Word choice and grammar are important in the legal field, you might learn that at TJ, but probably not. HTH
