No way am I gonna choose the lawyer too dumb to get into a reputable school over the one with a perfect pedigree
I could not care less about how my attorney got his or her license. I care about the work product.
At the end of the day, a law license is a law license. It's not like LSOP students take a different bar exam.
Essentially, you're calling Abraham Lincoln dumb.
LOL... Yes, because the legal system and legal education system today are so similar to Lincoln's time.
Talk about a massive is/ought gap here. Nobody gives a shit that you think it should be like X or Y. The bottom line is that where you go to school matters, whether you like it or not. I'm sure all the kids at Cooley think its BS that they're passed over for Michigan students, but guess what? Too bad for them. The game is what it is.
Your plan is atrocious. Go get loans (which YES, you can do if you're an American citizen), finish your degree, avoid the paralegal certificate, and definitely don't do this "reading the law" plan.
