You guys are all acting like a bunch of T3 0Ls who are told "don't go to law school."
They ignore all the logic/experience/advice/blogs.
They don't even consider for a second that what the person is telling them might be right.
Instead they come up with a predetermined outcome (that law school is the right choice) and then try to come up with arguments that justify the decision.
I always thought that T3 students were being stupid when they were repeatedly warned and still wanted to go. I thought, "their silly, I know its their dream, but clearly this won't work out for them." I couldn't understand how they could ignore the logic.
After seeing all the posts in response to OP, I now understand the T3s. I'm thinking to myself (as I'm sure many of you are) "its okay I'm going to be well above median! I'll do extra well. Getting a job won't be a problem for ME- it will be other peoples problem." Denial is an ugly thing.
Lots of irony and hypocrisy in this thread.
dude, the majority of markets - not just legal - are in a tailspin. What blows my mind is people going $80-$100k in debt for a freaking BA/BS degree.
Says the guy who is about to blow $110,000 for a JD. Nah, that couldn't possibly be a stupid idea.
