Since we posted the “So You Want to Get a PhD in the Humanities?“ video this morning, I thought we should give equal time to advice for aspiring law students.
(Language warning: Contains an OMG and one use of a synonym for a donkey.)
Have a friend now living in his sister’s basement in Florida…he has a law degree from Michigan, owes over a hundred thousand…and can’t find a job…he tells me he found he doesn’t even like the law.
He says his life is ruined.
So want to get a Ph.D in political science? See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=idHQoCUfPZ4
(Warning: some crude language but nothing that will draw fines from the FCC.)
Slightly OT but here is a link to two similar videos currently going viral among CA primary education teachers. My daughter whooped and hollered so loudly when she first saw them I thought the house was on fire. Can you spell “dysfunctional” system?
The above linked video, “comprehensive planning”, is OK for language. The second video referenced, “focus walk”, [click to open], contains one mild expletive and a brief discussion using the term “genitals”, for wiw.
Pretty funny, though it felt a little odd to be watching a video that mocks legal aid attorneys for making so little money that they have to live in the same bad neighborhoods as the people they serve… While an ad featuring Fr. Damien of Molokai ran at the top of the page.
And re:VoteOutIncumbents, the reason your acquaintance can’t get a job with a Michigan Law degree probably has to do with the fact that he has no passion for the work. Too bad for him, tho there are lots of young people in his boat, who think the law is the answer to their “quarter-life crisis.” …Not realizing the law is no less specific a calling than being a transmission specialist at the Ford dealership down the street.
o Every dark night is followed by a bright sunny day. So, patience and attention is required and things will be fruitful in near future.
