Look, I totally understand if someone has done their homework and decides to go to law school. But you came in here spouting stuff like this:

And now with the economy gone to shit -- it's going to be even more difficult than ever. That said, the 2009 class employment rate for Brooklyn and St. John's was 92.00%. Were the jobs paying 160,000 a year? No. But did they have jobs? Yes -- which is a lot more than I can say for someone with just a college degree, like myself, in a struggling economy.
That's why I said reasonable is doing you a service. Everyone knows that the employment data is gamed. Not just on TLS. Anyone
anywhere will confirm this. Your post indicates a thought pattern that is common among naive 0Ls, which goes something like: "Oh well, if I don't end up in the top 5% and make $160,000, I'll just make $120,000 or $100,000." I hope you realize salaries are extremely bimodal. FWIW, if you want to get back to your original topic as you say, if you look at my first reply I don't think Catholic is a terrible choice for you with a favorable stip. Coming out with poor job prospects and $50k in debt is far better than poor job prospects and $200k BLS sticker debt.
