Upper middle class? Most likely.

The only prolific pro-law poster here is swheat. You look as ridiculous as he does because of your own extremism.
I'm not a prolific pro-law school poster. I just think you guys are too risk averse and too conservative with your expectations. I wouldn't recommend any TTT/TTTT for any amount of money. But a T2 in a big market is not the freaking worst investment in the world. Nobody doing this should expect financial glory any time soon, but I believe most T2 grads have fairly successful careers. Multi-millionaires? No. But middle class? Definitely. Upper middle class? Most likely.
Middle-class is technically defined as 35k+ per household. That's not saying much considering the LS investment could exceed 200k.
Sigh...here we go again. Straight from the BLS, national averages. Of course these statistics are lies backed by profit motives
Occupation Code Occupation Title (click on the occupation title to view an occupational profile) Employment (1) Median Hourly Mean Hourly Mean Annual (2) Mean RSE (3)
23-0000 Legal Occupations 1,003,270 $34.49 $44.36 $92,270 0.6 %
23-1011 Lawyers 553,690 $53.17 $59.98 $124,750
Make a conservative guess, say the person starts out at 60k per year and never goes above 90k in his/her career. On a dual income you are likely talking 100k+ in yearly income. A household income of $100k+ puts you in the top 20% of Americans.
Struggle with the debt for 10 years or so, then live comfortably.
Amongst a group of such smart people, I feel like I'm speaking Greek sometimes.
