If you want confirmation that you are doing the right thing by going neck deep in debt to support the lifestyles of law school administrators then go talk to mommy and daddy. Don't pick up the newspaper if it sends an uncomfortable message I suppose.
LOL. I find it funny that that's your takeway. I found it more interesting that the "paper of record" doesn't even bother to do as much research as a couple of law students and 0Ls on TLS. I'm more fascinated by the state of journalistic standards but that's a conversation for another day. My beef is that they claim this guy went to CLS and can't find a job, where in fact it seems like he went to Columbia undergrad, not CLS...which totally skews the whole "even CLS grads can't get hired!" meme the article is advancing.
Mommy and daddy.
Note that the article also states that biglaw jobs still exist--but only for those at top schools with top grades. Which, um, is basically what most on TLS "T14 or bust" attitude is all about.*
*not that I necessarily even agree with it.
