I seriously don't even know what you're talking about, it seems you have some reading comprehension issues. You most certainly have some attitude issues.I'm not crying and I don't advocate anyone dropping out of law school, first or last semester. I just wanted to give my opinion to people who are about to commit to law school. It's a serious life choice and people should know what it's really like out there. The situation is dire out there, for LEGAL JOBS. No poo you can join the Army. You can do that without law school and save a bunch of money. But don't for a second think that someone will want to hire you after you just spent three years after law school doing nothing law-related. How is that a good investment?And I don't even understand why you're being so angry and obnoxious about it.
well if you want to practice law, what would you suggest doing?
I have the inside view from a T14. MOST of my fellow graduating 3Ls do not have job offers. ANY offers. This is not simply a lack of BigLaw jobs but a structural problem in the legal community in general. Don't be fooled into thinking, "Well, I never wanted to be making $160k working at a stifling corporate law firm anyway." The job market is pure crap across the board. There is stunningly high unemployment at these elite schools.However, the school is rehiring many of us to work at the library or in part-time research assistant positions so that we do not drag down the employment rate. You are a fool if you think law school is a decent place to "ride out the recession." Even Harvard Law grads are having problems finding jobs. So if the T14 grads are in danger, then what about the rest of the schools (from first tier to TTT to fourth tier)? I hope this post is not deleted. It could save people hundreds of thousands of dollars. If you got into a law school and paid a deposit, you must still think about what I am saying and make a wise decision.
That is just what gets me is people just say these things like it only applies to law school. I am pretty sure every type of school tries to manipulate their stats as best they can.
I didn't say it was a permanent job. It is a summer position. If there are summer positions available, does that not indicate there are jobs in general. I'm also not saying that every person who goes to law school will get a job. I was saying that perhaps you didn't network enough.
Also, if it's so unbelievable that I have a summer job before beginning school, I guess that speaks pretty well for me. What is so difficult to believe about it, really?
you can't take the bar without having gone to law school so the Do NOT go to law school trolls are pointless.
I want to be a lawyer, my mother was a lawyer and I've worked as a teacher and I enjoyed my internships in law much more, you can't take the bar without having gone to law school so the Do NOT go to law school trolls are pointless. For those going to law school because they have nothing else to do or a worthless UG degree i understand, but for those who have a strong desire to become a lawyer, there isn't any other way to pursue that goal (unless you want to be a paralegal).
