I just wanted to agree with you on this. I have to say that before finding this site, I had no idea about a lot of things. I'm sure you all would've thought I was a flame or an idiot if I had started posting BEFORE reading scores of threads.
I'm glad I found TLS. I now have a new-found peace that I may have never known otherwise. My ex's new live-in girlfriend is a 2L and although I couldn't bring myself to admit it, I was a little jealous. I stalked her FB page the other day and found out that she attends Concord. No lie. Needless to say, I feel much better about life.
But yeah anyway. She brags about being a law student all the time. Clearly, she doesn't realize just how horrific her decision was... and I'm guessing her classmates don't either.
The moral of the story: don't assume that everyone who posts here walks through these doors with a knowledge of the importance of attending a T14 and how piss poor the legal market is, etc. Some people just want to be lawyers and assume that if you get a JD, you'll get a lawyer job and make $150k. End of story.
