Can't you just make 1 thread to post all of your law school is the worst decision ever articles? Why make a new topic for each one.

He could post 20 a day, and the site will still be more cluttered by threads about attending TTT schools and scifi guy threads.

Don't you have a dedicated thread for this crap? This OP is bitter and wants to rain on everybodys parade, always posting stuff like this and never anything constructive. Just look at his post history. He is mad because he is doing doc review, but probably finished in the bottom 10% of his class and/or is just not law firm material, even shitlaw. So now he wants to try and discourage 0Ls by posting this troll garbage. I don't feel sorry for OP at all. This forum is a great resource for 0Ls to get guidance from some very knowledgeable people, but this OP is a joke. Shoulda retook the LSAT brah! ROFL

And proud of it. Bottom line is he has a dedicated thread for stuff like this. It is insightful, worth the read, but no need to create new threads for it every time.

Nah not really. I just don't really care for OP. Like I said above, when a guy has a thread for posting this stuff he should stick it in that thread.

He can post links to reports, as I said above, they are worth the read. But prefacing it with comments like this are what crosses the line into bitter troll category.

It is when you have assets pushing 7 figures and numbers to get full rides son. I can take on a second career like law with no sweat when I'd never have to work again in my life if I didn't want to. Nice to know you took the time to read my profile though :mrgreen:

a million dollars really isnt that much today. sounds like you should keep doing something you know how to do

EDIT: Your other threads say you made 150k the last couple years. Gentleman's 50k bump?

The assets include income generating rental properties, so when done right, you can absolutely make it work. The 150k is my personal income I slap on the FAFSA (You must be referring to my recent financial aide question), of which I don't consider additional money made from various LLCs I manage. (The rental properties and a consulting firm).

i applaud your success. dunno why you want to get into law. the industry has a dark side and the OP is just providing information to that end. lots of people making terrible decisions.

Thanks brahs. And it wasn't meant to be a brag, but desert fox chimed in with a little bit of salt and hate, so I figured I'd take a stab at his ego. I 100% agree with you on the dark side of law. And like I said, I think the information OP provides is very insightful and should be read by all 0Ls. But it is the comments that accompany his information that make it sound bitter and thus make one question his motives. 0Ls should know that getting a job is a coin flip, but there is a difference between informing and trolling. Plenty of poasters here inform without the trolling, and those are the ones who should be applauded, as the information they provide is invaluable.

Because you thought you were being funny by mocking the content of my profile, when nobody asked you anything. You aren't high and mighty buddy, sorry to burst your snowflake bubble. You try to talk shit to people on a message board to compensate for your low self esteem (this isn't the first time you crossed me path, why so mad bro?)

Not entirely true. Sometimes he bumps the threads he's creating if he's not getting enough attention.
