If you want to talk about cost/benefit of your degree ITE, TCR is to find another career.
Not really. If you can go to a decent law school for free and you don't have any good career options (which is probably the case for most non-science/engineering majors right now), the opportunity cost of time lost isn't particularly high compared to the benefit of middling lawyering job. Sure, there is a bimodal distribution, with personal injury or contract attorney work on one hand and BigLaw on the other, but there is a middle, and if you finish top 20% from Top 50 school that gives you a full ride, you're in pretty decent shape, I'd say. Either way, you're risking little except your time, if you're right out of undergrad and don't have a family or other such major commitments.
