John 4040 and HamiltonHow do you see me "actually benefiting society" in a personally fulfilling way in the little time I have left?
As for kids being much smarter, do not count on it. Standardized test scores have been dropping for generations, I spend my days trying to educate the idiots you are coming out of 'good' schools with CS and IT degrees who somehow still do not have basic usable skills. The kids have grown up in a world where everyone gets a trophy and are amazed that somethings actually require work, as such, it would be truly foolhardy to rule someone out because they did not come through the same happy little world that you have.
John4040People like me, with "real life" experience, can bring something to the legal profession that others do not and cannot. People often trust mature lawyers more giving them a massive competitive advantage over the kids that came straight through school and university to the law with no idea of how a business is run.
As a mature entry lawyer, I expect some difficulty in finding a law firm that is a good fit for my expectations and experiences. But within two years, I also expect to open my own law firm leveraging my other experience both legally and in terms of how I help my clients.
In all my years through school and graduate school and then as a professional in business ( city government, banking, real estate, commercial insurance, retail sales, energy industry ) I have NEVER been treated like someone’s b1tch nor do I ever expect to be. I wonder if you would have replied as glibly to my question if I had been a male.
The median lsat scores for law schools have most likley risen because more people are taking the lsat, not because the average intelligence has increased. Simple math. If 100,000 take the lsat, twice as many people score above the 50th percentile as when 50,000 take it.
johnWork on your reading compression I made no reference to the SAT.
