My disdain is mostly for the ABA. I shit you not, the last time I was at the doctor's office, when I told him I was a law student, he immediately started talking to me about the LS class actions. That kinda shit--and the fact that now everyone knows some nephew who's working at the Home Depot upon graduation from LS--degrades the legal industry.
huh? you clearly choose to continue going to law school while publicly bashing it, so I ask again, why?
For the record I don't personally know anyone working at home depot (or similar hourly wage type place) with a law degree (and I started at a tier 4 school).
Also, if your doctor told you that and then you told him that you had a job despite this, wouldn't that be a point of pride that you beat the odds, not a source of embarrassment?
I dunno man, I just like the M.D. model of everyone having a job and a good living, there being collegiality vice cutthroat competition, and a minimal standard of competence possessed by everyone in the field. It seems more in keeping with what a 'profession' is.
And I don't get why taking a job means you automatically have to pretend it's the greatest job ever.
