what a guest!

Finally, we hear what it's like on the other side of the tracks. I'll have to post my comments on his posts later. Right now the main thing I think is that Fool never gave the students here a chance. (This isn't a criticism; he admits as much). A lot of 2Ls inhabit different universes than they did when they were 1Ls and forced to be with the same people all day long.

Now we need a blogger from a fourth-tier law school to round out the perspective. One of the interesting things I learned this summer from a fellow intern who goes to St. Thomas (the one in Miami, not the one in St. Paul) is that all classes there have a mandatory attendance policy that is uniform. Here the profs set their own attendance policy but apparently there it's four free absences from four-credit classes and then they dock your grade.

This blog will let Lawfool carry it as long as he wants because I'm flat out of stuff to say (and a little busy these days, what with outlining and Sunday make-up classes)...

(And by the way, if anyone else wants to be a guest blogger, just e-mail me.)

St. Thomas had a 36% Florida bar passage rate last year. I think attendance is a start, but it might take a little more than mandatory attendance in some schools.

Is St. Thomas a religious school? Maybe God hates lawyers.

Lawfool,

Do you think you did better in your summer job search by switching. I'd like to know how these fancy firms took to you as a student from a lower-ranked school, and how you think your luck stacked up against the other students.

and kudos to someguy for digging up the "fool".

So I heard someone was looking for a fourth tier law student.
