But I think we've finally gotten to the root of your issue -- you don't want to find a dead end desk job making 30-40k because you think "it's all going to go to servicing your debt anyway so what's the point?" Are they seriously going to take more than 50% of your paycheck leaving you nothing to pay for food, heat, transportation? I am not familiar with the Federal Debt Collections act you speak of, but I highly doubt it. Every time I've heard of someone deeply in debt (with hospital bills, etc.) the two parties agree on a payment plan that is usually more like 25-30% of their paycheck. And we have not even discussed IBR, which may not be available to you, but should be available to some of us.
All of the bullshit you're spitting needs to stop. Even acknowledging that your advice is not easy to follow by any means, it's also not at all practical. How likely do you think it would be to succeed at opening your own firm in a new place with no money or support? And let's not forget that markets matter. When the market's bad, your talent means little.
You really don't have to be a lawyer or a law student to know what's going on, just like you don't need to be an unskilled worker to know that their odds are pretty bad. Look at market data. The schools are busy lying left and right. Even those in the T1 are trying their hand at a little distortion.
areyouinsane's warnings and tales are a sobering look into part of the statistics that hardly get brought up. Not everyone's gonna end up like him, but more and more probably will.
