But most entry level law jobs do not make enough money to pay off the massive cost of school.
T13 or free is TCR.
TBF, Im having a hard time definitively seeing how even HYS offers a good ROI even for people who have to take out on the low-end(135-150k+) in debt. There is just way too much uncertainty involved with the legal profession. Its like you can get the 160k payday for 3-5 years and have no trouble paying the 1500-1900/month in loans but then what happens next?? You still have 5-7 years of the same loan payments and no real idea where you will be.
Big law has good exit options if you last more than a couple years. But if you get Lathamed (and yes HYS got Lathamed) you are right.
