Have fun at Southwestern's unemployment line!


Explain to me again why it is our state's best interest to subsidize this person's education?

... as if that has anything to do with UCLA1LHopeful's comment...

I recall a certain someone on the previous page maturely commenting on the UCI situation, stating that "time will tell."

I'm glad this thread has turned into a thread about my job prospects (aka dick swinging contest) :)
I would also be perfectly happy to compare my 1L accomplishments/jobs (aka job prospects) with anyone in this thread.

I'm working for the DOJ for the summer, and the Director of the Homeland Security Honors Program/ former Director of the DOJ Honors Program recently came to UCI for a recruitment workshop to encourage us to think about applying.


Thank you for this. I was trying to find something verifying calapp09's statement on the DOJ website and was unable to do so. You being hired is further proof. I will be attending UCI in the fall. I would love to know more about your summer experience once it is complete.

the OC residents?
UC Irvine faculty/admins?
OC lawyers?

I just have a hard time imagining OC residents drinking beer by their pools and talking about how the OC needs more lawyers because UCLA, USC, USD, Southwestern, and Chapman just couldn't produce enough lawyers for them.


One of the local attorneys at the ASD reception at UCI was explaining that part of why his firm is looking forward to hiring UCI grads is that they hire a lot of UCLA and USC grads that really want the LA market and they leave after a few years. For those who actually are committed to staying in Orange County, I think the job opportunities will be strong.

If UCI ends up ranking well, strong students who actually want to work in the OC region will be very attracted to the school in the future.

Also I do commercial construction for $15 an hour. I made $11 until a couple months after I got licensed by the state.

UCI needs advocates because it's new and nobody knows anything about it. I happily provide info about UCI because I've studied it extensively. I don't see how there's anything wrong with responding if 90% of the stuff TLSers say about UCI is unfounded and there are no UCI students to stand up for their school.

This thread has generally been very informative, though. Some very level-headed people.

No problem, I understand. Sorry for coming off too harsh. Your comment seemed a bit misplaced, though, considering that guy has never said he's attending UCI (not that I could find, at least).
