I merely wanted to say that my logic was warped to support my stance that any school was better than none. Financial, that's not true.
This is exactly what I've tried to tell people. It can be very frustrating when people-- who have no clue what they are talking about-- insist that they will go to a terrible school, be top 10% - 25%, and magically make $100,000 starting out and 1/2 a million within 5 years. They won't listen to the advice that this is a bad idea, as the odds are much greater that they will be carrying debt they can't pay for the next 25 years or so. These people often cite a school's skewed employment statistics as a basis for their belief they are going to make it rich through law school. I do feel that I should at least offer a contrary view, whether they listen is up to them. (I know I am far from the only person on TLS with this point of view, but I can only speak for myself, not others on the forum.)
I am so glad you reconsidered what you are doing because of the reality of the financial situation. You made a smart decision.
I have no doubt that you made the right choice.
