I can't believe the nonsense that is spewed on this board, xoxo, and JDUnderground. Law school is a great investment for many people and is MUCH more than just a cost benefit analysis, which is almost universally a great investment long-term. The classist crap on this site absolutely amazes me. I will be making like $4k a month this summer and I am BLOWN AWAY by this amount of money. Many of you think of law school as a failure if you aren't making close to that a week. Just realize that when you spew your privileged bs you are influencing people that would really, REALLY benefit from a legal career. Have any of you ever worked the kind of entry-level shit temp job you would be LUCKY to get w/ a UG degree? Ever had a middle manager yell at you for your staple job? Ever want to kill yourself every minute of the day while watching the clock and making $12 an hour? For the people that say you can make $60k out of UG, you are absolutely full of shit. Most UG's won't make the equivalent of that (adjusted for inflation) w/in 5-7 years out of UG. The ceiling for attorneys, even in the dreaded "shitlaw" is well over 100k in most situations. You are in the tippy top of the US and are actually wealthy by most accounts. It makes me actually shake I get so pissed when I see people complaining about this kind of crap. Why don't you step out of your little life for one second to see what a privilege this kind of salary really is? Even if you net $4,500 a month and your loan payments are $1,500, you are living off of $3k a month. Maybe not glamorous but much better than what most people make and that is more of an entry-level salary and that $1,500 a month loan payment will look more like chump change later in life.
Every single middle-aged attorney I've ever met is well-off. Get over yourselves and let people improve their lives. This was not addressed to my fellow law school peeps in this thread, instead, it was addressed to the constant JDU trolls and know-it-all 0L's that think they have any idea what they are talking about.
lol dude. you're just wrong. simple. i make 60k coming out of UG. (closer to 65 now)
You make 65k? Wow! STOP THE PRESSES! Comebody get the WSJ on the line! All those articles about college grads having trouble finding jobs? They're a myth, because dhg5004 found a starting salary of 60k coming out of undergrad! The economy is booming again!
your sarcasm isn't appreciated. if you have nothing worth saying don't say anything at all.
