If I want to be rich, I'd take the risk adverse route, like becoming an air traffic controller, elevator repairman, miner, etc. I'm not doing this for the money. And if I want to be comfortable, I'd stay with the airline I'm currently working for.
By "job prospects," I mean finding meaningful, full-time legal employment. Check out lawschooltransparency.com for Loyola NOLA. Less than 60% of grads were reported as having full-time legal jobs. None of these jobs are school-funded, but this figure is still disconcerting. I would not take out a lot of loans to go there, especially in light of the fact you don't have ties to the area.
Don't go to loyola if you arent sure you want NOLA.
End story. If you are interested in job stats check out the new ABA placement stats summary. It's the most comprehensive out yet but not without it's faults.
