Lawyers just have no balls - the ABA ripped them out as required for entering a state bar.
Does passing the bar mean I get to make up stats like you do?

Really, what's the point of lawschool anymore? Don't for a minute think these other TTTT's aren't watching Cooley rake in the cash and getting ideas.
Fact is, lawyers are dime a dozen and this industry really has no future. The glut is so severe already that something like 40% of kids from even lower Tier 1 schools don't find full-time jobs in law.

I guess the writer at the New Republic just made all this up:

At the "top 50" school he studied for the article, only 45% of grads had real, full time, non-temp jobs 9 months post graduation.
The grim reality is that it's much worse out there than even the most pessimistic of you can imagine. Demand for non-Biglaw track lawyers is essentially less than zero.

Why doesn't the ABA accreditation committee just skip the effing middle man and just sell us our JDs directly for $120K by mail?

Cooley actually phoned the Cracker Jack people and asked if they could include a JD as a "prize" inside every box, but they said it wouldn't work since everyone already has one.
Shit, my friend is a Cracker Jack vendor at Yankee Stadium, and he has a JD & NY/CT bar admission. Seriously.
