I personally think that if you actually want to be a lawyer, and not make it rain with models and bottles, you could do a lot worse than going to a T1 at sticker.
To each his own, I guess.
EDIT: I guess it depends on the definition of "worth". From a purely economical, EV perspective, sure, people might be losing some expected income by going to law school. But people take less pay to work in the field they like all the time. Not everything can be measured in pure dollars and cents.
I think you are terribly misinformed. It's not about elitism or "models and bottles," but whether one is able to make a living practicing law.
These are the NALP figures for total JD graduates and those whose status was known to be "Employed Full Time at a Bar Passage-Required Job" for the last four years:
------Total JDs----Employed Full Time at a Bar Passage-Required Job
With those grim figures, one better go to a good school, get good grades while in it, and minimize one's debt by receiving generous scholarships. Is that T1, T2, T3, or T4? You make the call.
