I would have made a great communist, fashion-wise.


So you're me?


They should have a special required course for this in the Engineering curriculum. Maybe they should include it as a requirement in Senior Design?


Nooooooooo! If they did, my senior fall 2.5 GPA would have been even lower.

I started full-time at a law firm on Long Island, where I am from, last week, and quit IHOP becuase one job was enough for me! It pays only $25k. It has 4 other attorneys: Two from Fordham and one from Cardozo. Three T1's and a T3. Before this I worked part-time in the Bronx with a NYLS attorney and a Cooley grad. I am grateful that my law firm, which is headed by a Fordham grad, gave me a chance, instead of some guido at the bottom of his class at Hofstttra.

Reasonable_man should be even more grateful. He graduated from a rancid TTT and got midlaw in Manhattan.

If you will rephrase your question so that it is grammatically proper, I will answer it.

"Suffering people all have a horrible willingness and capacity for inventing pretexts for painful emotional feelings. They already enjoy their suspicions, their brooding over bad actions and apparent damage. They ransack the entrails of their past and present, looking for dark and dubious stories, in which they are free to feast on an agonizing suspicion and to get intoxicated on their own poisonous anger. They rip open the oldest wounds, they bleed themselves to death from long-healed scars. They turn friends, wives, children, and anyone else who is closest to them into criminals. 'I am suffering. Someone or other must be to blame for that'—that how every sick sheep thinks."

i.e. it's easy to blame the law schools for present ugly situations.

None. However, the vast majority of grads are not T10.

So, your question is for the most part irrelevant.

I enjoy verbally masturbating about my superior foresight and wide T1 options as much as anyone else, but I am awed by the lack of critical thought in this thread. I'm not entirely certain that the joke is on the OP here.

So, the screen name Olto, is it an anagram? If so, is it "Loot" or "Tool?" No offense, just bored at work and trying to figure out some of the clever names.

As a recent VLS Grad who managed to get a biglaw job, I can assure you that VLS does not do the same false advertising as other 2nd, 3rd, and 4th tier law school. When I was admitted, VLS sent me all of its career stats, which included an average starting salary of ~55k. There was no promise of getting a 160k (or 125k at the time) starting salary. I (and every one else at VLS) knew what I was getting into when I enrolled. You go to VLS to practice in Northern New England or environmental law (which is generally public interest work). A few grads manage to get good jobs outside of Northern New England, but you should not expect that and VLS does not advertise that you will be able to. VLS is a great school for what it advertises.

thank you for wasting time


A lot of you on this thread have got to be even more retarded than the op. No, actually, graduating from Vermont (an apparent ttt) did not screw him. The fact that he tried to break into the hardest legal market on planet earth where even the bottom 70% at Brooklyn Law have a hard time finding a job is the problem. HTH elitist bastards.
