Recent Ave Maria Law Graduate Taking Questions

Postby TheKevinChronicles » Thu Apr 06, 2017 12:19 pm

Hello Everyone,

Just graduated and waiting on my bar scores. Finished in the top third of my class at Ave Maria School of Law in Naples, FL. I've had multiple internships and have an offer for an associate position pending bar admission.

Mod edit: feel free to take questions but you can't promote off-site material here.

If you have any questions or want me to make a video on anything, feel free to ask!

Best Regards,

Kevin

How does it feel having to primarily use your JD for making online videos until you find out whether you passed the bar?

And how would you ever justify sending anyone to that scam of a law school, knowing that an overwhelming majority of your classmates won't work as lawyers?

A 56% pass rate is not "solid bar results", and I'm sorry that you apparently don't care about (or don't count) more than half the graduating class when you think about employment after school.

So I have to wonder if you're paid by Ave Maria, or if you are a completely heartless person who genuinely wants other people to fail. Then again, it doesn't have to be one or the other.

How do you feel that at least half of your classmates will never get a legal job, ever?

Is Ave Maria really haunted by Scalia's ghost?

Not really sure on those statistics. Anything to back up that assertion?


Sure, because you clearly cant research.

https://www.lstreports.com/schools/avemaria/jobs/

The class of 2015 had 36%!!!!!!! in legal jobs. 64% of the class of 2015 DID NOT GET A LEGAL JOB, AT ALL.

HOLY DUMPSTER FIRE.

Edit: I feel we have probably heard the last from our dear friend Kevin. But on the off chance Kevin does respond, can you explain why it is a good decision to go to a law school where only 1/3rd of the class gets legal jobs? Also, can you explain why Ave Maria does not publicly release this data unlike almost every other law school in the country, minus the other dumpster fires?

Edit 2: Now that Kevin is deleting his posts, I guess we can confirm this was some attempt by admissions at Ave Maria. Except they got rekt by basic data. Better luck next time.

Gotta keep this thread at the top. Dear Ave Maria admissions, why do you feel the need to bullshit people on this site? Does it make you feel better, or are you trying to fleece more students to attend your awful law school? Maybe you should publicly release your employment data instead of this veiled attempt.

What kind of firm are you going to and what will be your starting salary? What is your debt like? Will you lose your offer if you fail the bar?
