I know I'm late to the party, but I need to get this out there. For those of you that have wondered where I am, here it is. As you all know, I have three jobs (one is my own practice). I work every Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. (or until I fall asleep). Saturday, I'm off the grid. Sunday, I work from 6:00 p.m. to 12 midnight. It's a lovely life. And I'm making a fraction of what I was making a couple of years ago. So, I would love to update more often--but I'm not really able to because I would be neglecting my duties. If anyone would like to guest post, I would love to have you. I'm actually going to post one that was sent to me anonymously shortly.
Back to business!

I can't wait to see how this pans out.
Don't be afraid for your reputation. At this point, it's safe to say that most lawyers (excluding big firm partners) are fully aware of the scam perpetrated on students--but they are using it to their advantage when it comes to hiring them. So, they know they have you by the balls. If anything, becoming part of a lawsuit such as this one will show them that you're not as big of a moron as all of the other recent grads. At least you're well aware you've "been had."
Good luck and let me know how the lawsuit goes.
They Will Not Show You the Rembrandt - I recall a couple of years ago when I was new to a particular hobby that is a bit like organized train spotting, but it sounds better if it is told in term...
