Some people see the glass half-empty, while others see it half-full. I myself typically just chug the whole thing then fill it up again. Philosophical positions aside, a new wave of half-empty sensibilities has breached the legal community in recent weeks. The Wall Street Journal has recently published an article detailing the dire straits of employment among 2010 law grads. The next day the ABA journal presented basically the same piece but with comments enabled, which ended up being far more interesting and informative than the article itself. The shock value centerpiece was the story of Fabian Ronisky, a Norhwestern Law Graduate who, unable to procure any sort of legal position, has resorted to selling media online at his parents’ house. (I’m pretty sure I went to high school with the pariah in question, but like any righteously paranoid, self-protecting law student should, he doesn’t have a facebook account, so that pretty much exhausts my investigation on that matter).
Odds are, if you’re reading this, you’re either in law school or are in the process of going to law school. I’m sure, given the prospect of tremendous debt and the overall idea of entering a profession where most people are geared to hate you, that you are feeling a little bit of trepidation about your choice. But the more I think about it, the more I’m starting to figure that you should not be worried at all. After all, if news reports indicate anything, it’s that everyone, including your favorite pitcher, some silly reality TV star, and likely your grandmother are all going to law school. Since all of the cool kids are doing it, there’s really going to be no one left to hate you, and everyone will have equal levels of enormous debt.
As we’re getting into the last month before the LSAT, it’s time for some fairly intense studying. You should be doing your practice in long, uninterrupted chunks; gone are the days of half-assedly doing LR in front of the TV, just getting in a game or two on the bus, or doing reading comp high. Now is the time for focused marathons. But those marathons can tire you out, and you’ll still need breaks here and there. And what we all do, of course, is watch TV. Since I don’t have actual cable, I watch everything on Netflix Watch Instantly. Unless you’re reading this on paper, because someone printed it out for you (and I’m guessing there would be a good story behind that), then you’re probably a member of the 99% of people in the country who have Netflix and some device that streams it to your TV.

Does an average black American have a greater chance of being a sickle cell anemia carrier than an average white American? If I were to pose to you the above question, what would you think? Would you consider it a racist question, or merely a question of scientific import? I’d argue that you’ve got some strong scientific evidence suggesting yes, black Americans do have a greater chance of being sickle cell carriers (but as I was a history major, and am basing that off of a decently thorough Google search and what I remember from high school Biology, I’ll accept someone completely disagreeing with this and calling me a ninny).

I managed to sprain/break my ankle last week while lightly jogging to my car. I’ve been claiming I fell on a curb, but really, it was just a slight incline (hey, it was dark!). I then fainted, like a lady … Read Entire Article…
