LOL at ppl thinking its T24 or don't go...

Postby osu888 » Mon Oct 10, 2011 12:58 pm

I read on a lot of threads where they say you won't get a job if you don't go to a T24...SOOOOOOOOOOO NOT TRUE...

It's just plain ignorance...Simple

I'm serious...Some dude said if you don't get a 160, then don't bother going to law school because you can't get a job.

I just laughed

what OP says is true. There are people who go to non-T24 who get jobs. Sometimes very good jobs. I have a friend at a T100 school who got a job at a V50 firm. They were one of three people to get a biglaw job in their whole class.

But OP, what I think people actually says is that you are highly unlikely to get a job satisfying or high-paying enough to even nearly make the cost of tuition and time in school worth it?

If you have your heart set on shitlaw, that is another issue, of course.

LOL at ppl thinking you shouldn't play the lottery because you won't win. Someone won the lottery just last month. I saw it on TV. Idiots.

I would laugh at someone who said "t24" too.

what the hell is T24? That's like the top 22 and two of the four? schools tied for 23.

Hmmm, perhaps I should start a lottery for applicants to non-T24 schools. The price of a ticket is $150,000. The chance of winning is about 1/100, and if you win you get $160,000 the first year, up to $250,000 seven years later. Then one in ten gets paid $1mil for the next 20 years. I should get tons of takers. At least you dont waste 3 years in school or have to work terrible hours on mind-numbing work in biglaw.

vulpixie: "If you cannot score in the 160s, law school is not right for you. 3 years at a mediocre LS (you won't be able to crack the T50 with your currents scores) will leave you 100k+ in debt with no viable career prospects."

This is why i made the thread, at this comment

I don't think anyone on TLS is saying t24 or bust. It's more like T18 (or whatever they're calling the t14+ grouping nowadays), T15, T14, T10, T6, or T3, or bust.

The rule is actually top 26 1/2, which means that if two schools are tied for #26 only people who go to the #26 school ordered higher in the list by US News will find a job. Also this rule is absolute which means that everyone who goes to a school ranked 26 1/2 and higher will find extreme wealth, model wives, and mansions, and everyone who goes to a school ranked 26 1/2 and below will look forward to a life of debt.

This is the wrong forum for such trolling anyway.
