Great Article from an Ivy League school
The Daily Pennsylvanian has published a new article at the University of Pennsylvania about the truths of legal employment.
It is surprising that an ivy league university is taking a positive step towards giving accurate employment figures, when the T3/T4 toilet law schools tend to publish the most inaccurate and fraudulent employment information. The article describes how many law schools are now using greater transparency to disclose the accurate employment information of recent graduates in full time, part time and non legal employment. Hopefully more law schools will follow and get rid of their misleading employment statistics.
The American Bar Association Young Lawyers Division is now taking steps to make sure that potential law school students have a better understanding of what they are getting into before they take the LSAT and go to law school.
The word is getting out that law school isn't really worth it for most people, unless you attend one of the T14 elite institutions. Also, if you are a "pre law major" in some economically useless major (sorry to be so harsh), it is not too late to change your major to something more practical. The real world is not kind to liberal arts majors and If you don't believe me, then watch the video above.
