Yeah, IT people are dumb at math.
All they need to know is how to count from 0,1,2...... end.

They don't need to know the difficult numbers like 3,4,5 etc....it gets to be too much for them.

But they get by. Bill Gates has done well for himself.

There are too many lawyers. But just like the Real Estate collapse separated the weak from the strong the economy is doing the same thing with lawyers. The half assed lawyers who charge big fees and just cruise into court are struggling. Those willing to be honest and work hard are prospering as they should. I know people leaving private practice to be a deputy prosecutor and take the guranteed $55k. That is ridiculous. But people become lawyers and they think they are rich and it is going to be handed to them. People think I am rich just because I am a lawyer. "Wow, I paid so and so $$$$, he did not do anything for me." The comments are amazing so I just go back to working hard every monday and my family will be fine.

The market still pays, but its just much more competitive and grads can't waltz into a job like they used to. There is always demand for good lawyers...
T14? Serious? I wouldn't be that strict about it. I think you would still be good with any Tier 1 school.

Ok, I'll also permit Tier 1 schools, but you realistically must consider them regionally. You will have a hard time finding a random job in TX even if you graduated from Fordham. Better to be from SMU or Baylor.

For anyone in law school now, you might as well talk to a JAG recruiter, because they also do loan repayment and huge bonuses. I'm really thinking hard about it right now.

JAG programs are incredibly difficult to get into right now. (well, except Army) I applied twice to Navy JAG and Chair force only to be rejected. You have to start early by doing your summers with JAG if you want a decent chance.

Or just be a minority female those get snatched up by JAG quickly too.

LOL that holds true for just about any legal job. When I graduated none of us could find jobs and all the female minority girls had SICK jobs (NYC starting over $125,000) regardless of their grades or class ranks.

See, you're becoming cynical and pessimistic like a good lawyer. I think* if you haven't secured a SA position by now, you'll probably be schlepping for some medium sized firm...

The market is flooded with lawyers. Good luck finding work as a fresh graduate if you didn't go to a tier 1 school.

I'll mostly agree, but if you have a niche or unique ability you'll be fine...

Not guaranteed at all. I'm at a Tier 1 school and am specializing in a niche - I'm very pessimistic about my job prospects after taking the bar this coming summer. I'm likely going to have to work as a junior clerk or paralegal for a couple of years. No lie.

And I have 150K of loans to pay back at over $1,000 a month. SRS BSNS.

We had an "on-site consultant" for our patent department telling us he was willing to work for free just so he could get some experience. Lucky for him, we not only paid him but eventually offered him a full-time position a month ago after he had been working here for about a year.

so he's not doing too badly. Did your company hire him as a legal consultant? Or as an attorney?

Experience is worth your weight in gold. I do not know what tier my school was (Indiana-Indianapolis) but with the courtroom experience I had there was no problem finding a job. Then I went in with two others for a small firm and it is great now. Work hard, be honest, and return calls and you can mae a good living.

PS I pay law loans about like FTWeisse and dont really think twice about writing the check, it was a good investment.
