How dissapointing! I honestly expected that a degree would automatically entitle me to $100K+ a year at a job that was exciting, despite my lack of people skills and work experience. What sort of career can I pursue that is A) easy, B) high-paying, and C) requires little effort to find a job? Please keep in mind that I am good at school but not much else. I think I deserve a Mercedes for that.
It is heartening to see so many posts frantically urging students to avoid law school, especially from people who are taking time away from their current job search. I'm even more touched by the numerous posts from others who froth at the mouth at the idea of more and more young people entering law school and then a job market such as this. Those unemployed law school grads who spend so much time urging others to avoid a legal education truly contradict the old stereotype of a uber-competitive, manipulative lawyer who will do and say whatever it takes to get ahead.
Thank you for your altruism, and consider every dissuaded prospective student a feather in your cap (as I'm sure the thought of less competition in a field known for exceptionally unreasonable salary expectations had nothing to do with inspiring you to educate us against a legal education).
