So you want to go to law school?

I'm curious to get some lawyer responses to this.

Glad to see that Steven Hawking and Roger Ebert are out there getting voice work.

On a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being completely inaccurate and 10 being perfectly spot-on, I'd rate that video at around 35.

That is utterly vicious. I love it.

Favorite line: "So you were pre-med and got a C in organic chemistry?" So true it hurts.

The line at the end is brilliant... "Science cleared that guy. A lawyer put his ass in prison."

That is cynical and jaded and mean and totally true.

That was made in the same vein of this gem about being in sales.

Apparently this is from a website that will animate movies for you based upon a script.

As a pre-law adviser...I might make this required viewing.

Re: So you want to go to law school?

i thought about law school a few years ago. i was on jury duty and found some drug dealer not guilty even though he most likely was. the cops were idiots. the defense lawyer had some nice suits so i looked him up. he went to the worst law school in the country and was an ADA for a few years and now made a lot of money on stupid drug dealers.

if it wasn't for having a kid, my ass would be in the worst law school in the country. the Return on Investment for the tuition you pay was pretty good

My final student loan payment is in November. Fortunately, I didn't even have that much in loans - helps to go to a state school. I can't imagine how the people with 6-figure loans do it.

Re: So you want to go to law school?

So true it is almost not funny. There should be a section in there that because of the economy, you can graduate at the top of your class from a top law school only to find yourself in a worse job making less money than the job you had before going into law school.

Along the same vein, "So you want to get a PhD in humanities":

I'm glad I dropped out when I did, or else I'd probably be teaching separation of powers at some junior college in Iowa right about now.
