I can't believe I'm taking the effort to post this, but he dropped out of a midwestern T2 after finishing 1L around median. Midwestern T2s that year were Mizzou, Nebraska, and Kansas.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion but an opinion like this is just dumb.

Check her LSN. Though apparently somebody was too good to apply to Yale.


I didn't want to waste $91 :( Not good enough to get in.

Obviously I was being facetious, but plenty of people believe the T14 or bust thing.

MTal there are better ways to inform people and provide valuable information that don't include trolling in class threads on TLS and making a thread like this every other week. The guy in the article who started LawSchoolTransparency.com is a good example.

And obviously, sitting in your mother's basement in your Spiderman underoos, drinking Mountain Dew Code Red and eating candy bars while posting angry topics on a message board is the best way to fight the power. Fuck that guy who started Law School Transparency, he ain't got nothing on you.

I'm all about rage, but MTal takes things to a whole new level. MTal has been rampaging these boards the past few days, with each poast angrier than the last!

We all contribute however we can. The important thing is that word get out about what is happening.

Maybe if you'd spent half as much time looking for a job as you do trolling the boards, you wouldn't have had to drop out and become a bitter bitch.

Certainly not those posting in the NYLS class of 2015 thread, and when I TRIED letting them know, I was told to shut up and given a board warning.


I have a feeling that if they're on TLS, they already know whatever you're going to tell them (and think they can beat the odds or whatever; I can't really defend them, but if they want to go to NYLS or San Diego Law or whatever and discuss it on here, more power to them).


I had one of these moments. I'm going to a TTT or TTTT this fall. I know where I stand and I know what to expect when I get out. I think having a realistic understand of what your going into is what most people going to a TTT or TTTT don't have. I just plan to marry a girl with money.... 8)


You seem to understand but not really internalize how stupid you are being.

Whatever DF. When he marries Ivanka Trump and opens his own beeper store, you'll eat your words.

If that's so awesome, then why was it your back-up plan after you realized you couldn't hack it in law school?

I'm fully on board with full disclosure from schools, shutting down schools that lie to students, and closing about half the law schools in the country. But if that's your goal, then why aren't you doing something about it instead of wasting time on here?

Don't pretend that this is some noble thing you're doing. If you really cared that much, you'd be out in the really real world trying to do something about it instead of running the same old tired schtick on TLS.

Yeah ok I wasn't bragging about it. I was saying that maybe I'm biased in the Rubenstein/HLS debate because I'm not really concerned about debt, even if I would consider myself in debt to my parents instead of the government.

And I don't see how the quoted (even if taken seriously) contradicts the position. I was being elitist before and I'm being elitist now.
