  1. What is troubling to me is that you obtained admission to the second school under false pretenses. In the normal course, having been placed on academic suspension at your original school, you would likely only be offered probationary admission at a new school. I assume you did not disclose the facts because you wanted to avoid probation.
  2. LSAC was racing too quickly to the bottom and schools didn't adopt the GRE en masse like they feared.
  3. I feel like you have more fundamental obstacles to overcome in getting and staying hired.
  4. I guess it tells you something about the professional ethos you absorb in a purely transactional, high-finance practice.
  5. In terms of OCI, people generally have the best luck by cross-examining their interviewers on their practice group's Lexpert/Chambers ratings.
  6. You are taking this way too personally.
  7. Strosberg and Koskie are not like the firms Deadpool mentioned. They are plaintiffs' firms. They want people who want to litigate and who also do not want to rep corporations.
  8. it's not drunk driving stupid but it's pretty stupid.
  9. Biglaw juniors are also doing commoditized, deprofessionalized work compared to 'shitlawyers' serving less sophisticated clients. A first year transactional associate whose contribution is to cut+paste two paragraphs from a precedent that will be reviewed by 2+ levels of seniors on both sides of the deal, as well as the client's inhouse lawyer, has really nothing in common with the person running a case from start to finish on their own.
  10. Stop tying debt anxiety to job anxiety. You borrowed at prime and it's dischargeable in bankruptcy. It's not like you're in a death camp or something. Don't be anxious about not getting a 1L job. They're few and far between.
  11. You may also have adult ADHD (as a diagnostic matter, every adult likely has adult ADHD). As someone with adult ADHD, it's your human right to have double time on the LSAT.
  12. I assure you it's real. This is where your tax dollars go, to help public servants who max out at a 3.0 GPA rack up letters behind their name.
  13. Well if you have that sweet (unbelievable, unconscionable) five year federal leave, then frame this in terms of opportunity cost: is 3 YEARS of law school the most time-efficient credential to move you forward in your career?
  14. It goes beyond admissions. At your very best, your grades are probably going to be worse than every other person in your cohort. This is not like med school, where the person at the bottom of the class is still called Dr. and still gets to bill the government $300k for prescribing antibiotics to kids with the cold.
  15. Your "renaissance" grades are still extremely low.
  16. But she has a job now, right? 1 in the hand, 2 in the brush, etc.
  17. I thought your wife had a great job that was going to lead to the federal public service. How could you ever "exhaust" your options in Ottawa?
  18. If you think about the Ryerson law school in terms of serving the interests of Ryerson faculty and LPP providers, then everything clicks into place.
  19. So could I run an unaccredited law school out of my office while I'm eating lunch and then all my students would have to do is just pass their NCAs?
  20. I foresee many such post-facto justifications
  21. Isn't it FLSC who determines this? The same FLSC that sets an unbelievably low bar with the NCA exams?
