I wonder if Newyorkbrad will get Matt a job at his law firm when or if he graduates from law school.

That reminds me, I haven't seen Brad in a while? Is he stuck on the toilet or something? unsure.gif


Of course, it's not so bad for lawyers as they all have wi-fi and their shit doesn't stink.

Hope that answers the concerns.


Hmmm...he didn't answer my concerns. Just because I have four legs and a tail doesn't mean my concerns aren't relevant. unhappy.gif

Uh oh, it looks like Kev took a break from slashing female porn star articles and is now taking a slam at the much-photographed MB, with a striking oppose comment that "Any person who desires authority as strongly as I suspect this person does (based on viewing his User page; I may be wrong about him, but that's the impression I get), should not be granted it."

Kev, I hope you realize that your are allying yourself with professional idiots like Friday, Spartaz, Noroton, Jay Henry and soon-to-be-banned Keepscases (yes, someone will figure out how to ban him). ermm.gif

This is Keepscases (T-C-L-K-R-D) , who has an RFC open for his disruptive edits on RFA. Who does this remind people of?


RfA trolls... a dime a dozen. They get so much attention that it attracts and creates more. Uses like weber and dougstech and keepscases are classic Internet attention whores. They relish people raising a stink about their opposes. That's why all the brouhaha simply causes them to increase their silliness.

Weber was probably the pioneer. The rest are merely cheap imitations. None of them are particularly bright, judging by their exchanges on various RfAs.

My personal favorite was the "Juris Doctor, Georgetown, 2012 (Expected)".

If I saw this in a resume, and you were anything more than a term away from graduation (let alone 3 damn years), I'd laugh, and throw your resume out.

"Currently studying". Yes. "In progress". Sure.

Not "Expected".

I can see "Expected" being written/sniffed haughtily while looking down the nose.

Apparently MBisanz feels that Georgetown's JD program is unchallenging, a moot point, a fait accompli. Perhaps he could express that to his professors and see if they could do something about it?


I agree. You can say you're attending law school, but it seems a bit pompous to state 'expected' JD. It seems more honest to me to say you're first year law at a given school or something to that effect. Many undergrad degrees are not a given, let alone law degrees.

But this may possibly be less troubling than the detailed breakdown of standardized test scores.

As I learned long ago, no one wants to hear how smart you are or think you are. It just makes you look bad. Allow others to stroke your ego for you, rather than doing so yourself. If no one else does it for you, then perhaps your ego was meant to undergo a shrinking process.

He also may want to consider taking some courses at the Fashion Institute of Technology. It looks like he is making his clothing out of late 1960s wallpaper. blink.gif

I think Cool Hand Luke is expecting, too, but is a bit further along in gestation. Although another Scientology Arbcom case may frighten him into a miscarriage. wink.gif

QUOTE(Kelly Martin @ Wed 12th August 2009, 3:15pm) *

Things have changed since I went to law school, I guess. We had a moderately high attrition rate at my old school despite being top-tier. I will admit that I may have confused the 1L and three year attrition rates, as well.

I keep thinking someday I should go back and finish my degree, but I dread repeating first year, which I'd probably have to do as my credits are now ten years stale and I doubt I'd get transfer credit for them. Oh well.

Could be. Might have been the economy. A couple years ago it was very nearly literally true that "everyone gets jobs" from my school. That is, nearly everyone who went to top-tier school could get a job at a law firm paying the highest market salary--if they wanted to go to such a firm. Since the internet IPO boom, there had been a seemingly inexhaustible demand for graduates. In that environment, there's no reason to be competitive. Everyone at these schools were was set.

That said, I hear that the years beneath me are finding it much more difficult to get these jobs, and grades matter, while they barely mattered for my class (only for the top-of-the-top firms). I suspect that top law schools will become more competitive again. Georgetown might be especially competitive because it's enormous.

However, at this moment in time, it is still the norm for 1L applicants to display their expected date of graduation.



Well now. This is an old thread. But, relevant as I am crossing the stage tomorrow to receive my diploma with the 95%+ of my class that has made it through these three years. Law school has been the hardest thing I've done in my life, but also the most fun. The projects I've worked on in my internships, the people I've met in my classes, and the things I've learned, have all been among the most interesting and rewarding of my life. As Luke stated, finding a job has gotten harder in law, much much harder; but after a great struggle, I have been blessed and lucky enough to receive a dream position. Anyway, figured it was good to wrap up this old thread on a nice note.

They're doing you doggy style? Dang, I'd heard Georgetown had a tough law school, but that's harsh.

Seriously though, I'm glad to hear you turned out OK, real-life-wise. If only more Wikipedians could apply themselves in such a fashion.
