John carl rowe, IV

a team assistant coach | Jc.rowe@richmond.edu


JC is an assistant coach for Richmond Mock Trial, but he is no stranger to RMT after competing with the program for four years. He has abandoned the law and is attending the VCU School of Medicine. In other words, he is pretending to be a doctor so he can look down at the rest of us unemployed schmucks who paid too much to go to law school and now have to work as Chip and Dale’s dancer to pay off debt. He hopes to grow up to be Tim Patterson. Plot twist: he already is. Hobbies include: Penn A and dissecting dead old women while commenting on their personal inadequacies. In conclusion, JC finds emotional interaction to be below him and a sign of weakness.
