You basically need a 3.6 GPA or higher, with no B grades whatsoever to land a respectable teaching job.
Where did you pull this from? Because it smells like fresh butthole...
90 seconds into HLS's website and:
http://www.law.harvard.edu/faculty/dire ... tml?id=539 JD, Northeastern
http://www.law.harvard.edu/faculty/dire ... tml?id=590 JD, University of Arizona
And let's not forget the man himself: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Herbert_Hovenkamp JD, UT Austin
You must obviously like fresh buttholes.
Uh, so help me out. Where does Harvard say that you have to have a 3.6 with no B's whatsoever to find a "respectable" teaching gig? For that matter, where does Wikipedia say it? Or does your butthole have a website from which you pull made-up facts?
That's your comeback? Weaksauce.
Since you are putting quotations around the word respectable, I assume you have a definition you like to share. Let's start with that because you are turning this thread into total clownery, while I am genuinely trying to give the OP some food for thought. Let's be quite honest, all you have provided the OP is nothing, except the word butthole a couple of times. I have provided facts. You would be incorrect to assume that the burden of proof rests on me. Nevertheless, I have provided hard evidence of people who possess JDs from lower-ranked institutions and are current professors at HLS. I am currently in law school. I have spoken to some of my professors because this area interests me very much as well. The numbers above is the advice that I was given.
In any case, I suggest the OP talk to some professors and see what's what, because it's safe to say that your use of the word "butthole" is not going to contribute to a discussion on academia.
