I'm curious because I think that TLS is often accused of being too optimistic, and I think there is something to that. People throw around 2009 NLJ hiring as if that is in any way indicative of what 0L/1Ls will be facing -- THOSE PEOPLE DID OCI IN 2007.
Anyway, I'm only asking you all - especially 0Ls - to take these thoughts into serious consideration. You might conclude that this is still what you want, and if so, good on you. Just don't disregard this as "just another troll," because there is a lot of truth in that post.
Really? All those TTT threads and t14 or bust elitism makes me think otherwise....
It's not elitism in my book - it's the industry. The same law students on this forum will go and potentially start hiring in the relatively short future; chances are that this "elitism" is for the better and if anything, should be YHSC or bust.
Well elitism tends to be contrary to optimism in many cases. I see so many threads here where people are adamant about attending a TTT school because they are certain that they have the skills to succeed and that the only reason they are going to a TTT instead of a T1 is because the LSAT is a bullshit test.
TLSers tend to cut down these optimists with borderline diabolical brutality.
I just don't think TLSers can be considered as "optimistic". More like realistic if anything else.
