Or maybe the problem is too many people attending law school for purely financial expectations and not because they actually like law. If you can get into HYS and aren't sure because you might be able to make more elsewhere you shouldn't be a lawyer.
Right, but the cost of attendance has gotten so ridiculous that you can't go into law, no matter how much you love the profession, without considering the financial ramifications. As we have seen, it can completely screw your life if you guess wrongly.
