Maybe, I mean law school truly is not that difficult. I remember reading books etc about how hard it would be and I have been extremely underwhelmed. People will disagree with me on this I am sure, but literally if you show up to class everyday, do the readings, make a decent outline (there are a million different ways to do this, but whatever you need to do to go over what you learned.) You will get decent grades. Be a responsible human being and odds are everything will end up ok regarding your grades.
Instead a bunch of people try to take all these shortcuts. They buy supplements, listen to podcasts, etc and they say I never read the book or show up to class. Then they are baffled by the professor's exam, because the supplement the professor never assigned did not address some topic the professor covered extensively in class. People put in 100x more effort tin taking shortcuts han they would by just doing the basic simple task they are supposed to do. Read between 60-90 pages during the weekdays. It is far from impossible and I have done a lot harder things than that.
Getting a job you ask. How hard is that I was in suits all the time and people would always ask me how are you getting all these interviews? My simple answer I applied to jobs and they called me back. Not everyone in fact probably like 15% of the jobs I applied to, but it takes 10-15 minutes to write an acceptable cover letter. I applied to 400 jobs I think, which was quite easy to do when only having to read 60-90 pages a day. I ask them if they applied or even signed up with LCS oh no we didn't get around to that yet. Again, all I can think is how how in god's name are you that lazy that you don't have time to just register with career services. It is in the building you can take 20 minutes out of your day when reading 60-90 pages. It is just the bare minimum and if you do that you will need to write a competent cover letter. Again, if you do that things will probably work out even if you go to a lowly tier 4.
That is probably so incoherently written it is beyond understanding, but I am just so astonished at how spoiled & soft law students are. That does not apply to everyone obviously, but a vast majority of them would probably succeed if they used common sense and took some accountability for themselves.
The reality is law school is to soft on people and the professors and administration is to nice. This isnot going to help anyone in the long run. Yesterday for example our professor gives a list of people who will get called on the next class, which I think is to easy in the first place. However, one of the girls yesterday still did not get around to reading it. She was assigned a 4 page reading the book and just needed to have some comprehension of 4 freakin pages. She gets called on and says I did not read it. The professor gives a look of disappointment and moves on. I would have kicked her out of the class or literally docked her an entire grade or something. That is just simply inexcusable unless some emergency happened, but she was at the 49ers game and she could have read before going or our class is at 3:00 with a horrible hangover I could competently understand 4 f***ing pages. None of that was done so all I can ask is what in god's name will she do if she is a lawyer?
It is simply unbelievable to me. Those are extreme cases and a lot of people in law school are smart and hard working, but I can really see the type of people that join JDunderground etc. Law school is not unlike anything else do your s*** and this will require some work & sacrifice. As far as I know to succeed in anything it takes work & sacrifice, but law school does not even ask for that much. Well that is a nice and awesome incoherent rant, but I had to vent.
