The Law School Scam

Postby MTal » Wed Nov 16, 2011 1:57 pm

Law school is a scam which will leave you jobless and 6 figures in debt. The debt will destroy your ability to make life decisions most of us take for granted, like getting married, having children, and owning your own home. The degree itself will NOT help you in any other field outside of law. If you are at at a T6 school or attending some other school at a full ride, then stay. If not, DROP OUT NOW.

Every one of your posts has this info in it already. Did it need a new thread?

I thought it was a thread bump from some two year old thread. This is much sadder than that.

Mtal, I'm disappointed. Usually, your "law school is a scam" posts have something new to add to the debate (though the argument remains the same). This was by far the weakest

What is sad about it? Other than the fact that the damage the scam is inflicting on young people is accelerating.

Drop out of law school. There are better jobs just over the rainbow.

Why would anyone go to law school right now? The costs are MASSIVE, the entire industry is contracting...if things don't work out (for 90 % the won't), you are stuck with the debt for LIFE. Are you people uninformed, naive, or some mixture of both?

Does listening to what a stranger says on an online forum indicate an informed decision making process?

No, listening to law school deans who have your best financial interests at heart, the glossy brochures of the law school citing 90 % emplyoment, as well as listening to attorneys who are practicing 50 years out does.
