  1. Diplock has many posts on this topic. You are permanently out of the running for grade-sensitive jobs. You can still get jobs that are "subject sensitive", but you need to signal some real interest in that area - a good grade in the relevant black letter course, relevant clinics+mooting+externship, actually working for a practitioner, or having some truly marketable skill like a language.
  2. I think they liked the forensic "gotcha" part of it. Lots of it is very tedious and thankless, a lot of "accountability without authority". Yes some do return through law school and end up articling at the firm.
  3. See for example http://moglen.law.columbia.edu/twiki/bin/view/LawContempSoc/DeathOfAPartner See also https://www.ft.com/content/b9c96d04-376c-11e8-8eee-e06bde01c544
  4. We hire undergrads/grad students to do factual work on cases. We might have a grad student in a technical area be the amanuensis for an expert/set of experts. Or an undergrad would do more general internal doc review and draft synopses of hot docs that could end up in a submission. In the course of that work they get a pretty detailed look at every part of the process and sit in at examinations/hearings.
  5. I don't think you can get into med school without significant volunteer work in a hospital or other caregiving setting like a distress line. If it's implicit in your post that medical school is a significantly more selective and rigorous program of professional training then law school, then I agree 100%
  6. Seems very difficult to make this work. This would be quite straightforward for a coder with a few years' experience.
  7. What are the conditions on the scholarship?
  8. Haven't you been out of school for decades? There was quite sustained Title III litigation against LSAC that produced dramatic changes in how they provide time accommodations to test takers and report them to schools.
  9. It's not really cheating imo. Diagnoses like ADHD and anxiety are so flexible that they capture essentially everyone at some point in their lives. You may very well have been entitled to all kinds of accommodations and could be much farther along in the rat race had you not been unjustly deprived of triple time and a half on your exams.
  10. I was surprised at how much stimulant use there apparently was at law school. I guess ADHD isn't a barrier to achieving 95th percentile+ results in school and on standardized tests. I think what is being discussed here is one facet of a general trend in Western education to be less sensitive on the "right side" of the curve in service of other values. I guess the irony is that "meritocratic" evaluations in North American education were introduced in order to end anti-Semitism in university admissions, but now we have equity seeking groups that, for whatever reason, can't really compete on a population level in strictly g-weighted evaluations.
  11. Your classmates in law school will know, because you'll never take your exams in the same room as them. They'll become your coworkers.

  13. Those are the outcomes of students at the school that Dean Young taught at for the past 20 years.
  14. Is Albany the model for what Ryerson is going to be for the Canadian market? 70% bar passage rate, $250k cost of attendance, 45-70% of grads getting full time JD-required jobs?
