Yes. TLS says go to Tier 3 and work at McDonalds. This is wrong as is your statement that the prevailing opinion is correct here.
That isn't TLS' prevailing opinion. The prevailing opinion is that it the opportunities that a JD from a TTT affords aren't usually worth the cost of attending for most people without connections or without a significant scholarship. Aside from that overwhelming evidence that most people from these schools aren't going to secure high-paying jobs, taking on six figure debt for a chance at a 30k/yr gig or to get paid $16/hr doing document review for a biglaw firm isn't exactly a prudent economic decision so I'm not really sure what you're trying to prove or disprove.
Have to agree w/ AngryA here. I mean, 2/3 of the jobs you mentioned dont seem...well that impressive or good at all. Almost like jobs I can get w/o a JD or being in law school (so it'd be sans 100k+ debt lol).
And i know you werent SEARCHING for exceptions, but the vegas analogy said it best. Why are we even bothering w/ anecdotal evidence instead of just pointing fingers at the stats? It's like saying, okay a reputable online car website says x car is horrible, in fact, after 5000 ratings, it scored 2/5 stars. On the other hand, 2 friends i know who have the car say it runs great and they love it. Must be a good car to buy lol.
