Any 1Ls thinking of dropping out even if they get ok grades?

Postby Gettingstarted1928 » Thu Jan 05, 2012 4:57 pm

Just seeing if anyone else is concerned enough about debt and the market to drop out even with decent grades. I haven't taken the idea off the table.

Why? Unless you hate law school, if you have decent grades, you should be OK.

The market and debt is not exactly breaking news.

If you are not at a T6 or going full ride, you should not be thinking about it. You should be doing it.

With the growing number of lawyers, I think in several years a law degree will be about as worthless as a psyche degree or the equivalent.

I don't think this is true for vast majority of schools (maybe only the top 10).

If you're considering dropping out before having received grades, you should have never went to law school to begin with.

You sure have a lot of "knowledge" about legal hiring/the legal job market for someone who 1) Never finished 1L 2) never went through the OCI process 3) never interviewed for a legal job and 4) never secured a legal job.

Agreed. The market sucks, but that's an absurd statement.

This is just retarded. This thread is retarded.

What is this?

The market is the same as it was 4 months ago, why the shit did you go to law school if you'd drop out with decent grades?
