See, you say that like you've done enough research, but then you make statements like this:

My point was, schools like Suffolk are not good schools for people who want to practice law
. The statistical odds of getting a legal job after graduating with a JD from Suffolk or many similar schools is very low. If you had truly done your research, and were acting rationally on that, you would be aware of the low odds and not be joining the ranks of those assuming that you are somehow going to be able to beat them.
Yes, it's possible you'll succeed. But you're not acting like you accept the reality that it's more than 50% likely you will not
, and that's a high risk to be taking given that it costs over $100K and three years of your life. Are you really
prepared for the realistic possibility of not outshining your classmates, no prospects of legal employment whatsoever, and the knowledge that you could've been working wherever you ended up already without the crushing debt load?
It does not sound like it. Instead, you keep talking like you're special or you'll beat the odds or something, and if you'd "done the research" you'd know how foolish that kind of attitude can be. That's why people are almost universally disagreeing with you.
