Thank you for your response about LLS.
Follow up questions:
8.) Why do you not talk with your friends at LLS about it being a TTT? I went to a TTTTTTTT-undergrad, so I have some experience, but do people actually believe LLS isn't a ttt? If you said "LLS is a TTT" would other say "no it's a good school, we're going to be lawyers, it doesn't mean we aren't smart" the same bullshit people in TTT-undergrads say? I mean seriously, in undergrad so many people want to have stupid jobs that it's ok that the school sucks, but in LLS, everyone wants 1 or 2 jobs, ones that pay, how can you avoid being bitter and discussing it?
9.) Are 1L's excited? Like you say there are gunners, but whatever, are people genuinely excited to be there? I don't know how this is at other school.
10.) Is the carrier services office completely TTT, or do they just lie to you all day?
a.) Do they have pamphlets?
b.) Useless "forums" to talk about "other" jobs in law, i.e. TTT low paying shit jobs like public defender?
c.) Are they even staffed/open on a daily basis?
d.) Does anyone even use them?
e.) When do people hear about pre-screening? When they hear crickets during OCI?
11.) Do you ever get angry at the administration and say something? Does anyone say something?
12.) Are those who hate LLS, like yourself, shunned if they speak up?
13.) At what point (maybe 3L so you don't know) do people accept their TTT status and accept shitty employment? Before graduation?
14.) Do people end up taking non-law jobs during summers, like McDonalds or working at the Mall like High-schoolers? Since unpaid internship sucks anyways if it's some shitty one that leads nowhere?
15.) How many people in 1L work part time places at LLS? Are you allowed to work 1L? Second Part: Sames question for 2L?
16.) 20%+ don't even use their law degree and go into "business/industry" at LLS does this mean McJobs or some asst. manager at TTT retail store, or what the hell is this at LLS?
17.) How often do you drink/consider suicide/consider quitting?
18.) How are the professors? Do they realize it's TTT and let on, or they just lie to you?
19.) How are people in the top 10%? Do they still look/act inferior, does everyone hate them?
20.) Who goes to Southwestern, Non-Trads or just morons who have no concept of what life is after graduating? (Not an LLS question, but it should cheer you up to know there are much shittier schools in the LA area, and LLS is clearly still 3rd best.)
21.) Do students ever sabotage each other? Any dirty stories?
22.) How is the quality of life, are people happy or just bitter all the time?
23.) Do you live near campus, where do LLS students live?
24.) Do people whine about debt a lot?
25.) Why is LLS so cheap when giving financial aid?, it seems really TTT to give such low scholarships to candidates well above their medians, I know from first/2nd/3rd hand experience LLS is a TTT which looks like a scam by the fact they give virtually no money in grants.
26.) How hard is it to score well at LLS? I'm sure lots of LLS 1L's or 0L's are reading this thinking "fuck this, I can get into the top 10%, i'm smart", Tell these people, is the grading procedure fucking arbitrary law school bullshit, like at most schools, where some retard can get an A and some smart person gets a shitty B- or whatever grading system LLS has.
27.) How is the curve, it is harsh, it sounds like it's shitty and causes lots of people to get pushed out of the Top 10% for 1 slip up, i.e. the curve pushes people towards Top 10% then makes fucking brutal splits based on 1-2 grades down into the top 50% What the hell is this? Some attempt to show the avg. gpa os LLS students is decent but arbitrary top %'s?
28.) How is the staff? Are they approachable? Are they personable? Do they know people by name? Are they assholes who don't care? Are they all local minorities who don't know shit about Law School and have 2 hours of training to teach you how to make it big, but secretly resent even your TTT status since they are TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT local slum dwellers?
29.) How are the URM's at LLS? Does LLS even admit URM's for the purpose of seeming diverse or it's just a money trap to take the highest candidates to avoid slipping 20 spaces like USD.
30.) How many LLS students read this, do you know? do you care? You seem pretty smart, you should be hired some place, atleast you give a fuck and aren't a retard. It seems lots of people are too stupid to realize they are even stupid, I think you get points, you seem intelligent, and LLS seems to be an arbitrary TTT which pushes many people into shitty positions because of basically no reason.
