But you can hold your own. Cue Ed Wilkes, associate vice president and dean of admissions:
"The legal job market has suffered, and it hasn't quite fully rebounded yet," said Ed Wilkes...
"No one predicted there would be this kind of huge drop in applications," Wilkes said.
The decline in applications is linked to the perception of withering job prospects, school officials said. As in other industries, technology advances and outsourcing have disrupted the legal job market. The economic downturn forced firms small and large to reduce the number of summer associates and new hires, Wilkes said....Emphasis added to showcase the expertise in word choice. "Yet," meaning it's going to fully rebound? "Perception," as in there's some subjectivity to the lousy job market and he's unsure about it? "Small," meaning that small firms were once taking on summer associates?
The drop in applications came out of nowhere?!?!?!
Behold the product of the master craftsman.
Enjoy the new campus, schlubs.
