Is Law School a LOSING game?!

I know lotta TLS users are aware, but this is a good article with unflinching honest reality.
I am a 0L, but I have been lurking around enough both online/offline to get a sense of whats happening in terms of employment, opportunities, and etc etc. Just to give you guys my $0.02 for thoughts - IMO, those of you who are thinking about law school for reasons other than becoming a lawyer, you should be warned to think again. Also, even if, hypothetically you do, you should have a mindset of T14 or bust, or Strong regional school or bust. Because, the bottomline of all the realities, if you can't make more than $60,000 after grad - you won't make positive output, benefit out of it.

The extra exclamation point makes this worthy of another thread.
