(1) Boomers are not retiring en masse b/c many cannot afford to, and (2) there is already a huge supply of lawyers waiting for those jobs and an ever-increasing pool being created - so do not expect a sudden lawyer shortage.
Pull yourself up by your bootstraps because you are not working hard enough Toledo pushes hard for students as I have received at least a half dozen email from them
*Waits for someone to come along and suggest pulling yourself up by your bootstraps because you're not working hard enough*
Let's say that in an average year 150K people take the LSAT. Keep in mind, even though 60K may take it in October and 60K may take it in December, some of those people are the same people retaking the test. We will say 20K don't go to law school, leaving 130K starting law school and graduating each year. The US population is over 300 million. What percentage is that of the entire population? I think people are displeased because they expect a 100K plus job with a hot secretary in the first five years. And man, it sucks that I have to actually put effort into my job search and interview process. On top of that, I have to plan ahead and try to make myself as employable as impossible while STILL in law school. Oh, and what really blows is that I am not entrusted with great responsibility when I do get that first job. So, I give up before or after I get that first job and whine and post negative crap on the Internet. ANY job requires you to prove yourself and have knowledge you've gained through experience. Only by proving to potential employers that it is worth their time and energy for you to be somewhat of a thorn in their side for a little bit will you succeed. Oh well, good for me, I hope all this negativity this does deter people from attending law school and makes them give up. More jobs for me to choose from when the baby boomers retire.
