Even licensed ABA grads get turned down for those jobs if they lack the experience or weren't the top 10% of their class.
Why on earth would a DL graduate expect to be handed a job? They shouldn't go that route if you expect a job at the end - you can expect to be gainfully self employed if you are willing to put in the effort though.
you missed my point
and if you can't expect to get a job, you shouldn't go to school for it
gainfully self employed isn't really a thing, its more of a myth that an unlicensed person with an unaccredited degree will be able to do anything worth doing on their own. I don't doubt some will, but we're talking single digit percentiles.
I am not saying that anyone should expect anything to be "handed to them" just that they have far less odds than the groups that I was comparing them to, who themselves are not in the best situations as far as that goes.
If someone really wants to go that route I guess an EJD would be "ok" to do, but it really seems foolish.
If you don't plan to get licensed at least go to a real school and get a Masters Degree in law from them. At least people will see a name they know/trust/respect and it will be regionally accredited. Heck get a masters degree in Paralegal if you want to work under lawyers without being one too I guess.
