It comes from lots of lawyers hating law and seeking work outside the field.

After bar results came out what surprised me the most? The amount of my classmates taking jobs in Mid Law, as Fed clerks


Currently looking at the aba summary for class of 2014 and seeing 3 fed clerks, 2 state clerks and 24 midlaw/biglaw combined. Out of 307 grads.

I'm gonna come out of retirement for a second to smh at the EGREGIOUS anti-Gator alumni trolling ITT. I'm gonna go to the Citrus Bowl next month, and I expect the NETWORKING opportunities to be off the chart.

OK, I quoted the above because I think they're really great.
1. How much do you make?
2. How much are your loans?
3. Where did you go to undergrad?
4. What's your definition of truly being an attorney?

1.Not enough... But future earning potential is very high..
2.A lot but not nearly as much as most...
3.Large State school.
4.One who is listed as counsel on a case. Really, though I only want to litigate so someone who also gets actual hearing time in State and Fed court...
5.This statement was to clarify that I am not working at a State Attorney's office or a Public Defender's Office.
6.My job is probably one of the best stepping stones in the state into politics or litigation I will not clarify further.


Also, to clarify I didn't say you would be marked for going to FSU Florida or Miami... I'm sorry if I was a little convoluted... I mean't If you go to a Florida law school outside of Florida, FSU, Miami, Stetson, and maybe FIU you pretty much have a red mark on your resume for most jobs.

Bruh. I know a dude who went to Ave Maria, transferred to Florida Coastal and is doing super well with both names tattooed on either side of his heart. He makes a wage, doing work with people (that I can't specify because it'll out him). He has potential for salary increases. He lives in a certain kind of house. Drives a car. Has a pet. Just lol at your one-off list for jobs in FL.

Hey man I respect your interest in privacy, but I gotta say --if you're going to create a thread like this and want people to listen, specifics are definitely better.

It's not sad! OP has a great outcome (better than most on this site) and encourages others to take his same path to greatness!

Is it possible OP works for Stetson? I've been ignoring three emails a month and tossed more than a couple snail mail brochures from Stetson since I registered for my first LSAT attempt in January. Maybe this is a part of their marketing strategy?
