This thread, much like the Minnesota legal market, cannot be revived.
I've heard this from many people, but can you explain a little about why the MN market is so bad? Just over saturated with students? Not enough firms? No hiring?
I was mostly kidding. I went to Iowa, and two of my buddies are MN biglaw - one after he finishes his clerkship this year, the other one started in September. I know of at least a few more. My friends that went to St. Thomas seem to be doing... fine. Not great, but fine.
Minnesota isn't a terrible market, but it is really competitive and saturated. Four local schools plus Wisconsin, Nebraksa, Iowa, and I'm sure others trying to send students there too.
