Firm fired me RIGHT AWAY - unemployed for almost all of 2013

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Oct 25, 2013 3:49 pm

Life sucks. I had a job. Firm fired me out of the blue. Later learned it was because they couldn't afford to have me anymore. I live in a small town and there just aren't jobs. My unemployment was challenged (jerks!), but I won in front of the ALJ. However, now, I am running out of that money. My life, predictably, has spiraled out of control. I cannot afford basic life necessities. I sometimes have to go without health care. I go to the free clinic 90 minutes away. I am on food stamps. I can't find another job and have sent out hundreds, nearly a thousand resumes, to all sorts of positions and industries.

Completely nihilistic post. I don't know if this is just me ranting or trying to somehow warn prospective students. All I can say is that going to law school was the worst decision of my life. One, honestly, I do not think I will ever recover from. Life is over because we decided to become educated in our 20s. America.

What school did you graduate from? What are you stats (grades, moot court, journal)? What exact region are we talking here?

If you went to New England Law and are living in middle of nowhere Northern CA for example you absolutely need to move. We can probably give you some ideas overall, but we need the above info.
