Yes. The current system encourages a meritocracy for law students. Do well on the test, get a good GPA, and you can go to a school that either is A) much more prestigious, or B) costs a lot less due to scholarships, or C) a bit of both.

If you don't do well, you should probably avoid the law school game. Unless you want to fuel it for the rest of us, and I have no idea why you'd do that.

Fourth-tier? Try some schools in the first-tier depending on debt.

These articles sometimes do more harm than good.

I agree. But it's a start. It's just reassuring the mainstream media is finally paying attention.

And while 18 percent of 2010 graduates were able to obtain starting salaries of around $160,000, nearly half of reporting graduates were making annual salaries that fell between $40,000 and $65,000.
