Please, Just Don't Go

Postby cooldude87 » Sat Mar 16, 2013 2:05 am

For 90% of people, going to law school right now is a terrible idea. In three years you will most probably be unemployed and have tens of thousands of dollars of debt. Seriously, you can do something else. Don't go. That's it.

P.S I was about to start law school last August but postponed. I was pretty sure I was going to attend this time around but have decided even with a full ride to some good schools, it's not worth it.

You are really not in a position to give advice.

There are thousands of unemployed law graduates that could give better advice on this topic.

Why not?
I've got a full ride to a TTT with a top 30% stip. I know I'll be top of my class with no debt and get biglaw because my parents say that I'm good at arguing.

I think you have to be careful to not let the cynicism here pollute you. People are pessimistic for good reason, but if you have a full ride at a respectable school... you are looking at 50k in debt for COL. I'm sorry but that really isn't that big of a debt load. You have to take some risks. Its your life and you can and should make the decisions you think are best, not the ones some forum warrior says on TLS or another site.

ETA: And I agree completely that you are in NO position to be giving advice to other 0Ls. You aren't even speaking from experience... all you are speaking from is reading a bunch of posts.

NO, you probably wont be unemployed in 3 years.

Yeah the market is shit, but your thread is hyperbole and a disservice to reasonable prudence.

Based on OP's history, he is probably going to Creighton and doesn't like jews.

Guys, come on, can't you tell that this guy is bitter about TLSers warning him off his bad decision and has decided to make bad hyperbolic replications of our advice?

Wow, when you put it like that it really makes me wonder. Are we that elitist that anything outside the top 5% of schools WITH discount is generally a bad idea, or is it just how bad things really are at 95% of law schools (and some of the other 5%)?

I admit even in my own mind I don't even really give much consideration to anything outside T1 as even being a law school, so to me, T13 is more like the top half of law schools. Maybe I've been on TLS too long.

OP your hyperbole really serves no purpose. You're not even a law student or attorney, so stop shitting up this forum with these threads. There are a lot of students who legitimately need help figuring things out and this schtick doesn't help.
