sounding a little snobbish aren't we?? there are some good T2-T3 schools out there ya know
I basically go to one (Tulane is at the cusp). And
1st: GGU is, as the poster above said, not one of the T2/3. It is TTTTT.
2nd: From GGU saying that he would make about 50k at graduation would be optimistic. Unemployed is more likely.
3rd: I know people here that would punch a baby seal for a 50k job. everything is not puppies and butterflies in the t-2. So if people in the t1/2 are struggling to find 50k jobs, it is reasonable to think that someone from GGU is going to have as good of a chance? Not at all. That is crazy talk.
4th: While the OP got into schools ranked in the 50-60 range, doesn't sound like he got a schly to those schools. So that means debt, debt, debt. I know many people here that are going to be 250k in debt when they graduate. they will be paying that off for the rest of their lives.
5th: that might be ok if you have NO other options. He can make more by staying where he is at than he could by going to law school.
6th: conclusion. For the OP and the law schools he has available, enrolling in law school would probably not be a good life decision. I know. I made a similar (though not nearly as bad) decision in enrolling.
