Stop the bitchin

Postby Ph297 » Thu May 23, 2013 8:47 am

I'm so sick and tired of watching all yous bitch and moan about coming out of law school in debt. Unless you already have a family, you should not be such a pussy about this. It's part of the fucking deal! You're talking about entering a profession, not buying a condo or making a business deal. If you want to be a lawyer, then deal with some of the drawbacks. And think long term; so fucking what if you have to make payments on school debt for a decade. I'll never understand the people who could go top 10 and are like, "I decided the debt wasn't worth it so I'm gonna take this marketing job that pays 60k a year." Yeah, see where we both are in a few decades.

I mean, I guess it's a good sign that some members of our generation are realistic and don't just assume they'll be running shit in a few years, but still, have some balls and take a leap. We're talking about law school, not going to Hollywood to trying to be a movie star. How many people, in the long run, come out of a top ten law school and end up on the street? Come on.

It looks like you might not be in law school?
Don't you think that this message would be better received if it were written by a 4L barista?

I agree. People need to just man up. Looked at student loans and realize you owe 100K after 3 semesters? That is nothing. I paid $1,000 for my sneakers.

But that's just me. Me and broke ninjas don't get along.

The tl;dr is " don't go to law school, buy a condo instead".

Unless it's really a shitty tier 3 or 4 school, you can deff make it out of law school and live comfortably but you got to be willing to bust your ass. Jobs don't just show up out of the blue anymore.

I mean anything under half a million in debt (UG and LS) and you will be fine. Just don't complain and work harder.
