Honestly what people don't get(and I am aiming this at the people who told me "i'm not special", and any other negative comment I have received on this site) is that life should not be centered around reality and expectations that other people have of you. Honestly, it's all BS. What school you go to, what background you have, what chances have been given to you in life, it's all stupid labels. If you don't see yourself as special then what the fuck are you? Another number? Another organism living in the world? Well you guys can be apart of the world working with everyone as a whole, but I would like to be special. Laugh at this post all you want, but one day when your lost in the bullshit of being a lawyer, I'm actually going to try to make a difference. No point in explaining it here, I can smell the smug already.
Whether you want to hear it or now, whether it's "fair" or not, law is a field dominated by prestige. This does not make law unique. In any profession in which there exists an oversupply of labor, the individuals in administrative poisitions look to use shortcuts in selecting from within the talent pool. Credentials are usually the favored metrics since they are easy to use and familiar. Does this mean a Seton Hall grad can't succeed
? No, it doesn't. It just makes the statistical likelihood so small that it's not worth your time or money. TLS is all about playing the odds; if you want to take 200k of your hard earned money and burn it on far
worse odds than you'd have at a blackjack table, by all means, be our guest. We can't stop you. But if you are going to willfully shut your eyes to reality, call yourself a special snowflake, and say the odds don't apply to you, we'll all tell you that you're an idiot. You can't wish away reality because you don't like it.
