I also don't see how this clears up your previous posts. You basically just reiterated that you shouldn't go to law school because of how unlikely it is that you'll "luck into" a large sum settlement case and have the know how to handle it. Which is equivalent to saying that outside of biglaw OCI, you should drop out because the chances of this happening are too remote to bank on and there's nothing in between, which I believe is the same crap you've been pushing for going on 3 pages now.
Oh how I love the 0 L "anger." It never ends. Hurry now son, and back to those Rule Against Perpetuities puzzles. Remember kid, just one "B" separates you from a 160 K position and a seat in the doc review bullpen for $17 an hour w/ no health insurance.
Don't laugh, buttonpusher has a point. I went to a T50 school. Ended my 1L year just outside the top 10%. Received a B- in Con law. Had I gotten an A or A-in con law like the rest of my grades, I would have been in the top 5% and would have been accepted to a t14 law school. My friends in the top 5% all transferred to T6 schools and all of them have biglaw jobs. Now I am at a t25 and unemployed.... Out of 9 graded classes... 1 class, an 3 hr exam and 6 double spaced pages separated me from a biglaw job. The lines are extremely thin.
The problem with law is that there is literrally a line drawn in the sand. One side you get 160k, the other side you get 30k shitlaw. You either get a 100k+ job or you get a 30k job with little job mobility, there is very little in between.
