That's like saying you should take out a mortgage to buy lottery tickets, because hey, someone wins! Just because an infinitesimally small amount of TTT grads end up in biglaw (and I've never actually seen this, just taking your word for it), doesn't mean you should bank on that.


EDIT: You douche.

Obviously going to law school is not like buying lottery tickets.

Unless you bought $200,000 worth of lottery tickets

MrAnon, we're all waiting for your "In all seriousness,..." post. OP, hopefully you can see through MrAnon's sarcasm...

In all seriousness, TTTs are for wimps and fatties. Retake + reapply, or reassess.

I'll just add some advice from someone I know who graduated from Duquesne a few years ago. She was lucky enough to do so well there (Top 1%) that she managed a solid biglaw job. However, she regrets the amount of debt she saddled herself with, which she will be paying back for a long time. She admits that even though she's one of those lucky few who "made it" from a T4, working ridiculous hours and knowing that she couldn't take a break even if she wanted to because of her debt takes the satisfaction out of her job.
