I don't know how to quote specific parts of your text so i did it this way.
In regards to the other guy who said if you don't get a biglaw job after 2L, you're shut out forever - I can think of at least 1 person off the top of my head that started with a government job, and got biglaw later on in life. I know I used only 1 person, but I don;t know that many lawyers so it's a large percentage for me.
Even if somebody got biglaw later in life (btw, it is really really rare) that isn't very relevant to someone paying sticker for Cardozo. You have to start paying that 180k in loans off right away once you leave school and you are going to be suffering under that debt for a long time with a 50k or worse salary.
Yes there are even some kids out of top schools that are screwed, but the point is that it is 10 times worse at lower ranked schools.
