I hope you're all getting excited for your I.D. shitlaw monkey work. You'll be living in a 3rd-world office nightmare getting paid pennies to do transactional nonsense that any decent computer could do given the right software and input parameters.

DO NOT GO TO LAW SCHOOL RIGHT NOW

Postby Kompressor » Fri Jul 31, 2009 6:59 pm

Unless you are in at a top 6 or so law school, none of you should be paying any money to go. The market is an EPIC DISASTER. The jobs are wayyyyy fewer and they are backed up already for years ahead. The classes of 2011, 2012, maybe 2013 are completely screwed. Schools are going from 250-300 at OCI to ~50, and those ~50 are slashing positions left and right. Wait 2 years and then apply.

You're welcome.

Thanks K,

You're the first person who's said this in the last 5 minutes. It's important for these threads to be recreated every five to ten minutes.

No problem. Haven't been here in a while, but I just figured I'd do you guys a favor. But you will ignore me and then come here and post exactly what I am posting right now.

It is your only choice. Hold my hand and we can do it together!

P.S. Why do I always feel these messages are self-serving?


Actually, I'm from New Jersey, and we don't do self-serve.

No kidding. Mintz Levin set a grade cut-off of 179 here at Chicago. That's easily top fifth, if not closer to top ten percent.

Most of you will learn the hard way, except for Colton, who I think I know from high school. Good luck, dude. I haven't been around to the CR in a while.

I'm doing law school and then graduate school to get my Ph.D. I would've preferred doing it the other way around, but my ultimate interest is patent law, and you kind of need a Ph.D. to be taken seriously. Well, not really, but according to every inventor with whom I've spoke, talking to patent attorneys about science is like asking Dell tech support to translate Moby Dick, and expecting something intelligible.

So, 8 years until I'm on the market!
