In fact I haven't worked in the few years and I still drive a Porsche (and love it). I probably can buy most of you an sell you for a huge lost and not get hurt. Like I said if I have to borrow money I'll probably die before I pay that loan off. I could put this on one of my credit cards, I have five unlimited gold cards. Noteda why don't you learn a little about life before you make a comment like you did. Willy the whole industry has changed. There is no more stockbroker on the street, they're all financial planners now. No more trading stocks. And for bonds people are buying their municipals on the internet (no mark up for the broker). My business was built on municipal bonds. In fact I moved from the retail side for a while to a muni trading desk then to a junk desk and also a high quality corporate desk. So I worked both on the inside and the outside of the business. Oh also Willy, when I first got into the business in the mid 80's first year stockbrokers were making more than double the pay that a first year associate out of a top law school made. If you made it through your first year you out grossed those same lawyers by maybe 3 to 1 later on in your careers. Lets face it how many lawyers make $30 million a year now how many Wall Streeters make $30 million a year. A lot more WS than J.D.. Always remember one thing, Wall Street, not Washington runs this country. And imagine you don't even need a degree to work on trading and sales because I didn't have mine. I have closet full of suits that any attorney would envy. Steve, I know all about Phoenix, in fact they're not even a tier 4 school they are unranked. It's a brand new school. Everybody has to start somewhere. Sense going back to school three years ago and finishing up my bachelor I just love to learn. And for those of you making fun of my 135, I have two physical disabilities that caused that. So if this is my ticket into law school I want to do it. Oh yeah for the person who said that even the small securities litigation firms in New York still like to hire out of top schools I know plenty of lawyers in that practice who wet to small shitty schools and do quite well.
All your talking about how much money you have and how you just love to learn is supporting the contention I made earlier. You are going to law school for fun. You've already had a career and you made plenty of money and now you want to get a JD for shits and giggles so you don't care if you go to a terrible school. But most of your future classmates are going to this school because they think it will give them a better future. They think they will get jobs as lawyers and will make a decent salary. For the vast majority of them that will not be the case and their lives will literally be ruined. Going to Phoenix seems to be fine for your circumstances since you can buy and sell all of us - but don't encourage other people to go to this school.
