I've seen lots of posts online that there's no point in going to law school unless you get into one of the top 50 schools, but I think that's ridiculous. How do you know the quality of the school unless you attend them all? What makes these 50 schools better than the others out there? I haven't seen any criteria for how they're rated or seen examples of what statistics are used, so why should I believe this information when I know nothing about the methods?
I talked to the director of disability services (she's a friend of mine and I was in the office taking a test anyway) and she said that disability law is a small field and there aren't many people who go into it, so as long as you really know the law you'll be able to fid a job. There's even an opening for a position that requires a JD at my school in the diversity and equity office, which is the kind of thing I'd really like doing.
I don't care if I make a six figure salary as an attorney. Right now, with my food stamps and disability payments, I live off of $8,000 a year. $10,000 is the poverty line for a one person household in the U.S. If I can get a job that pays at all it will be an improvement.
is a video I found particularly interesting/horrible. If you've never seen how airbrushing works or how much models are altered for print ads then take a look.
Chapter two of BWW is with the beta : ) I'm hoping to have it posted soon.
I got my results back from my second LSAT and I didn't do any better. I scored about the same, which is disappointing. It also feels like a waste of $150. Honestly though, the score I have is good enough to get into Campbell and George Mason, even if Chapel Hill and Wake Forest would be a long shot, which I am okay with.
