Reader “king obama” sent me a blog post about how much it sucks to be a temporary document reviewer in New York City. This is what happens to people who go to bogus law schools, which are all law schools except for the Top 14.
New York’s also-ran diploma mills like Brooklyn, Cardozo (called Car-Bozo by employers), Pace, St. John’s, Hofstra, Touro, and the infamous New York Law School (whose motto is a chagrined “no, we’re not NYU”), are essentially fathering a new breed of white-collar underclass: heavily indebted, sporadically employed, poorly paid, bereft of health insurance and stuck in dead-end temp jobs that pay lower hourly rates (after student loans are deducted from salary) than many unskilled day laborers earn.
The only part of the blog post I disagree with is how much he disliked the law school curriculum. I liked law school, but I suppose law school is geared towards only the smartest people, people who have high enough LSAT scores to get admitted to a Top 14 law school. So that’s another reason to only got to a Top 14 school, because if your LSAT scores aren’t high enough to get admitted to Top 14, you probably won’t enjoy law school anyway.
