    NO WAY ABA! STRIP THE ABA OF IT ACCREDITOR STATUS! STOP THE OVERSUPPLY OF LAWYERS!

    On facebook, check out the page: NO WAY ABA

  2. @kblair7 Ummm “think for yourself” said s/he has been practicing for 23 years.

    I love how dumb educated people can be. In our society financial literacy is not taught. It is quite obvious to any finance or accounting person that a JD from a junky school is not financially worthwhile if you must go into debt 150k in student loans. The other day I lectured a PHD student on slave debt (student loans). His stupid liberal arts dissertation writing ass is pretty much going to be a slave for 30 years after graduation. He thought bankruptcy would work! LOL

  4. @Shaminamoh

    LOL

    Get rid of shitty schools?

    That just won’t happen buddy!!!

  5. @wecangethigh

    HAHAHAHA! texas southern LMAO

    At beta alpha psi the average starting salary is probably higher than at that school! Aspiring cpas also only need a BA LOL

    Wow if you cannot correctly understand that guy’s simple post your reading comprehension must suck. I know it is a hasty generalization but damn you suck!!!!!

    CPA’s are much more in demand than lawyers. I have a buddy that graduated from a tier 3 law school. He recently scored a 50k per year job at a small shitty firm. In a year when I graduate I am starting at 55k plus bonus ad I only have a BA. I have’t even passed the cpa yet either….

    Lawyers suck!

    ha ha you’re crazy, Mr. Buddy. I’m responding from my tiny cubicle at my law job I’ve had since you were probably in high school. I had the luck of starting out when jobs were plentiful and demand pressure pushed salaries higher every year. And it was still really hard but I’m still really glad I became a practicing lawyer. I feel for you guys.

  9. This is f***ing EPIC! I couldn’t stop laughing!

  10. Um… he did not say he was 23 yrs old.

    He said he’s been practicing for 23 yrs.

  11. @thinkforyourself2222 you are not a practicing attorney, you are a 1L

  12. @ think for yourself

    You are NOT a 23 year old lawyer. Unless you graduated from college two years early. lawl. The comments you made reveal you as a starry-eyed lemming who thinks “working hard” or “liking the work” means shit. Obviously you never practiced law or did a clerkship. No, I doubt you actually sat and drafted documents for 6 hours a day or had some Dickensian miser of a judge yell at you for breathing too loud. Just go get your liberal arts degree and stay away from lawschool.

  13. @thinkforyourself2222 Really? You’re a 23 year old attorney? You graduated HS at 16? I’d personally say if you can go to law school without burying yourself in debt it’s not an idiotic thing to do.

  14. @thinkforyourself2222

    After reading your post, I figure you have 12-18 months before you’re out of law.

    “Cool engineers and scientists”

    Just watch “Big Bang Theory” to see what the mainstream/pop culture thinks of scientists and engineers.

  16. GO TO AN ONLINE LAW SCHOOL LIKE TAFT UNIVERSITY, UNIV OF PHEONIX, CONCORD UNIV, OR ANY OTHER 10TH TIER SCHOOL!!! THE CHEAPER THE BETTER

    Ashworth College emphasizes flexible learning through the U.S. postal system and online courses, although these credits wont transfer to your local community college, at least you’ll have a nice piece of paper.

    TRY KAPLAN UNIV OR GRANTHAM UNIV, THEY’RE NOT REAL INSTITUTIONS OF HIGHER LEARNING BUT PEOPLE DO GRADUATE.

  17. @altonhare Texas Southern is a 3T school and requires a 146 LSAT and 2.68 GPA, so I suspect a 4T would have slightly lower standards. But I agree most law students can read.

  18. People want to be what they see. Police, teachers, stars are all top choices for kids. As we get older everyone is watching the 50 lawyer shows on TV every night. Until they can make some shows about cool engineers and scientists (don’t hold your breath) young adults with no better ideas will follow what they see.

  19. @altonhare Correct, but they don’t need a glut of them. right now we’re running a science and engineering deficit.

  20. @boobtuber06

    Engineers need lawyers to prep, file, and prosecute, and protect their patents.

  21. @Shaminamoh

    You’re lying. Even at 4T schools people have to score ~150 on the LSAT, which is impossible without being able to read.

  22. What the public does not understand is that ambulance chasers arise b/c these people are so pathetically desperate to make a living. Sure, a few lawyers will get jobs paying 160k to be someone’s lacky, but my sister-in-law makes 140k working 40 hrs./wk. with a Pharm.D.—and she’s not half as smart as most of my law school class at the Univ. of Minnesota Law School—or is she? The American dream is being cut off on every side. Judgment day is coming for doctors, too.

  24. less lawyers, more engineers: the former diminishes the American quality of life; the latter has the potential to improve it.

  25. We need to get rid of 4th tier law schools. I know one school that tells its students to read a case three times because they realized their students cannot read. This is wrong! People like these destroy the quality of lawyering, not to mention end up with heavy debt that they will struggle to pay off and destroy the wages for the rest of us.
