Well how many people really expect a school to lie to them? I mean, doesn't the government make sure they don't? :shock:

Both a joke and what I think people are thinking when they sign up for some of these law schools.

OP posted a dull, oft-repeated rant that we should shut down crappy law schools ("How DARE we allow people to make choices with bad cost-benefit outlooks!"). Then he got called out for making a shitty thread. But then, in a blaze of glory, he comes back with that old chestnut "All you internet nerds probably got beat up in high school!"

So let's see how this plays out. Your move, Intertubes.


lol, thanks SBL. Really feelin the love on this site.

I think this is really the case though. I know a girl I went to college with had really good grades and was in a bunch of organizations on campus but bombed her LSAT. She attended Elon in NC for LS, just graduated in May and still can't find work. I think the big thing is that people assume that Law School is like a lot of other schooling, that as long as you have the degree it makes the difference. Rankings are superficial and TTTT law schools are like off-brand cereal, you get the same product just without the fancy label. To be honest, I didn't know anything about all of this until I started legitimately researching the field.

I know with undergrad, at least here in Virginia, UVA grads aren't significantly better off than James Madison or George Mason grads when it comes to finding jobs despite a huge discrepancy in rankings. Most people not familiar with law schools would assume the same would be true for LS.
