I’m assuming this is true for all law students, not just those at ‘Bama.
the stages of law school.
1 — yay, I’m in law school I’m going to get some great job and make millions.
2 — I’m not going to accept any summer job less than like $20 an hour, $10 is insulting.
3 — $10 isn’t as bad as it sounds, I mean it’s something, right?
4 — do you think if I emailed this person they would let me intern? i mean hell I’ll do it for free, i just want the experience.
5 — OMG will I ever find a job?
With modifications, this will fit rather a lot of situations.
