I ask because I'm curious, as almost no other law school has 0 people in short term jobs (even Yale has 3 in short term jobs).
How can you expect anyone not in the administration or career services to answer this question, let alone a 2L who certainly wasn't enrolled in the school with and probably didn't even know anyone in the class of 2010?
Seriously what's the game here? You wait until he doesn't answer and give some rant about law school employment transparency, or you wait until he does answer unsatisfactorily, which is guaranteed, and then still give some rant about law school employment transparency?
I just really can't understand the point of or the motive behind asking a student at any school a question like this...
All I did was ask the OP if Alabama's claims were in line with what the OP has heard/experienced.
You're at Alabama too, no? Is it in line with what you have heard/experienced?
The question is not one that can be answered. OP can't have heard or experienced very much about the class of 2010. Even I who knew people in the class of 2010 could never have enough information to say to you that there were 0, 5, 10, etc... people employed in short term jobs.
Your question was basically, "Alabama is lying about a specific job category, right?" With the natural analogue to that question being, "what else are they lying about?"
Like I said, I don't really get your game or see what you hoped to accomplish by asking such a specific question to any student at any school. We as students simply don't have enough information. I honestly couldn't even tell you with any degree of certainty how many 3L's have jobs post graduation and I'm a 3L. I know I have a job, I know the majority of my friends and associates have jobs, and I know that group of 20-30 people is probably not a fair or accurate representation of what's going on in the class of 150+ people as a whole.
I hope this isn't seen as me trying to "defend" my school; to be totally honest, I could care less about that because I firmly believe that people should know what they are getting into before they go here or anywhere else. My issue is that you asked a really silly question that this kid or any other kid couldn't possibly answer, and then suggested an answer.
