This Forum has to be the most bitter & suicidal around...

Postby jcm043 » Thu Nov 24, 2011 11:51 am

Everyone here seeking advice is told if it is not a T1 or they are trying to get into Law School with a lower GPA and ya'll tell them to Law School is not for them. I hope some of ya'll do realize not everyone wants a big NYC or London firm job. I would bet behind your apple mac book pro laptop, the majority of the ones providing answers couldn't carry an interpersonal conversation in real life if your life depended on it. Give some people some hope around here. Yes this is my rant and I don't care.

I have some kind of Acer laptop that was like $300. Works like a charm though.

1) I assume that you would, however, like A job that would actually pay you money. This limits the schools that are reasonably safe bets to go to when compared to scholarship opportunities.

2) My "apple mac book pro laptop" was provided by my job. If I made the decision to go to a T3 school with $150k debt, I probably wouldn't have a job or a laptop, so huzzah TLS.

3) Delusional hope is not hope at all, it's self-sabotage.

Go to law school for a semester and you will be bitter.


And possibly in debt.

I usually tell you you're wrong, but its Thanksgiving, so I will tell you that you hit this one right on the head.

Most of the people who come on here pushing this tired "you guys are all elitists, I don't want a big NYC job, you must all be mouth breathing nerds!" schtick do exactly the three things you mentioned. They don't understand what people on TLS are saying and they grossly mischaracterize it, they don't get how the legal market works, and subsequently they know fuck-all about law schools. This guy is a perfect example.

Actually no, I think this may just be some subtle Apple Macbook trolling.

OP, if you think this shit is bad, go read the employment forum. All those unemployed 2Ls, 3Ls, and recent grads will have you changing your tune real quick.

Op I feel ya about ppl being asses: saying shit like if you can't (insert any thing) then law school isn't for you is annoying. But I have looked in the employment forums and I believe the doomers and glomers are actually doing TLS a major service by opening our eyes to what could happen if you don't end up at a t14
