The fact that graduating from a T14 school doesn't guaranty you a job supports the idea that in an economic downturn it is less important where you graduate from.
If you read my assessment carefully you would see that I had stressed the importance of doing well in Law School. We all want to be lawyers. The only way to do that is to go to law school. Schools like Cooley at least give you that chance.
Hi! My name is probability! Nice to meet you!
When someone goes to like UVA, they have about a 60+% chance of getting into biglaw or a prestigious clerkship, that means the probability (that's me!) is better than a coinflip. For other kids in that class who end up working at small/midlaw firms, public interest jobs, and other respectable careers, it goes up to over 90%!! Wow that's great!!
When a kid goes to Cooley, his probability is low . At Cooley less than 1/3 of a graduating class will ever have substantive work in the legal profession. Oh no!! That's bad . don't forget, that many of the kids that do get work will be working in very ungratified professions such cheap personal injury firms and insurance defense. Truth be told, a negligible amount of kids from cooley will ever get a job they want Yikes!!
Some kids who go to cooley, many many years after they graduate can make a lot of money! Yay! And some kids who graduate from UVA might be unemployed for a while
but remember!! Because you have no realistic notion of how you're actually going to fair in law school, when you're up against every kid in your class who also wants to do really well, just think of me!! (probability ). Just like a casino! Yay gambling is fun , you'd be better off putting a bunch of money down on a full house at a poker table than you would on red 19, you might lose it all!! . Sometimes people do win on red19, and sometimes people lose on full houses. But thanks to me (probability!) you can disregard those specific incidents and look at the broader picture! YAY!
I'm in love.
