Your hyperbole is unbecoming. There is nothing wrong with either:
1. Going to school for cheap and settling for an average law job.
2. Going to a good school with a good chance at biglaw or using the school's good LRAP.
Doom and gloom is just to give people an idea of the reality of the situation. If tuition at the average law school was 10-20k, the situation wouldn't be a big deal. The problem is that even bottom rung schools put you in 200k worth of debt with little chance of paying it off.
