"That is so meanspirited and unnecessary that I cannot believe I'm even acknowledging it with a reply. Assuming you intend to be a practicing attorney, "you are exactly why" attorneys have a public image problem"Not so. Attorneys have an image problem because they are relegated to ambulance chasing blood suckers because the labor market is flooded with talentless idiots. Attorneys aren't often regarded as "mean" but as dishonest and blood-thirsty, willing to do anything to make a buck. Why do you think this is the case? Itís because there is not enough legitimate work to go around. Thus, every line of every contract is forced to be scrutinized because firms can hire worthless idiot attorneys from any TTT to do the work. Then, client companies are forced to hire their own TTT army to protect themselves. What do you have? You have a hoard of idiots from TTTs doing Doc-Review for $35K a year... Many don't like the work and pursue "ambulance chasing" or similar less than savory methods of acquiring work. All because idiots with no business practicing law flood TTTs and then flood the labor market.That my friend is why lawyers have an image problem - Blame it on the OP, not me.
"They have installed in me that I indeed, have positives that would benefit any law school."Not only is your modesty (or lack thereof) painful, you appear to have the language skills of my hamster. You are exactly why TTT schools have the reputation they do. People who attend crap schools always complain about how they can't find a job or that they make $35K a year. Seriously, the only person you're going to benefit is Sallie Mae. HTH.
Dude, maybe you should consider being a playwright as a side gig because that was one HELL of a monologue. Jeeze, I'm inspired here at 2:10am on a Thurs morning just by reading it.Congrats on your acceptances and Godspeed!
I've trolled this thread on and off for awhile...not surprised it took this turn. I hate to pile on as the tone of the attack has XOXO "let's play with someone from LSD and see what happens" written all over it. However, I do think this site has gone way too far in an "up with people" direction in the last couple of years. TJ and La Verne are NOT quality programs. More than a handful of their grads will take on enormous debt and have horrible professional prospects compared to other programs. Does it mean they will not produce any successful lawyers? Of course not. If someone with below average stats comes on and posts their intentions in an open forum, should all replies have to fall under, "if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all?"This person clearly has a "dream," and seems like an OK person. I just think that some of the posters in this forum really do people a disservice by all this cheerleading. I mean if a buddy of mine said, "Guess what? I'm gonna take on 6 figure debt, attend the lowest ranked law school in one of the most competitive/flooded legal markets in the country, have marginal job prospects, and enjoy no alumni network, what do you think?" My first response would not be, "good for you."The log cabin stories are great to have, everyone has got one. Sure some people just like to kick people when they are down, give them internet anonimity and they kick even harder. Do your homework, this isn't looking like a happy ending this time.
