So where do the law school drop outs go?

Postby hexyz » Thu Sep 08, 2011 12:07 am

What happens to people when they drop out of law school, and where do these people go?

Anyone have insight?

I'm very curious as to what other law school drop outs have done with their lives after law school. :)

I'd assume most of then return to whatever work they were doing pre-LS

Yeah, you're probably right. I went back to math and computer science, and I'm loving it! :)

Wait, what? You joined a law school website yesterday when you have insinuated that you have already dropped out?

The majority of students in Law school worked for a year or two before going to LS

If I went to a TTT and I didn't do well first semester, I'd drop out. No point in waiting, really.

Become President. I think we've had 6 drop outs and 7 J.D.s. Or something close to that. You could even the score.
