Too many over-saturated markets with too few job openings. It's no secret that whether you go to a T14 or a TTT school, getting a job is mostly luck; going to a higher ranked school and doing well only marginally increases your odds. Top 10%, LR, etc. will not guarantee anyone a job.
Lol, wtf? This is completely untrue.
As someone at a T14 with near top 10% grades and LR, I can tell you that it does not guarantee you a job. Especially if you are aiming for a non-NY/DC legal market.
No one is taking issue with 1styearlateral's statement that going to a T14 does not guarantee you a job. Of course that's right. Folks are disputing this part: "going to a higher ranked school and doing well only marginally increases your odds." Of course that's wrong.
So then what, all these T14 2Ls on here QQing and posting "Should I give up?" and "Am I doomed?" are the outliers? I suppose that those who obtained employment for next summer have no reason to post anything (except those few who liked to brag) and thus don't give us a good representation of the overall numbers, but damn there still seems to be a lot of people who didn't secure employment. Even so compared to my TTT.
My point was that blaming others because "They Said" OP would get a job if OP did xyz is total nonsense. If you went to law school because someone told you you'd be making six figures when you graduated, the joke is on you. IMO, no one is interested in listening to your whining. "Go MM," as they say.
