You could make an argument that it's Hastings. Hell, you could make an argument that its BC.
So? My liberal arts BA qualifies me to work minimum-wage retail jobs. I might be able to find work as a bank teller or a receptionist, if I really tried, but that's about as good as it gets right now.
Yes, it's a contrived example, because if I only got into the local TTT or TTTT, but had a full ride, waiting a year and reapplying to higher-ranked schools might be my best option. But barring that.... yeah it's hard finding a job out of lower-tier law schools, but if you can afford to pay living expenses, and especially if the TTT or TTTT places well in its market, it's not necessarily a bad call. I know a guy who graduated from Cooley and is now a partner at his small law firm. It's not the dream job of most people on this site, no, but he's working as a lawyer and he has a solid middle-class lifestyle. I'd take that over spending the next three years working at Starbucks any day.
