flcath's advice is best
In their defense, they're getting it from many of the high post count posters. The majority of the high post count people claim that there are many 40K jobs available for someone coming straight out of undergrad, and that this is one of the primary reasons no one should attend law school if they are not admitted to Yale or Stanford (maybe Harvard if they receive a large scholarship, or one of the "top 6" with a full ride).
broad generalizations largely are worthless. with my International Business degree I could have earned 40-50k at graduation from GWU. if I graduated from the University of Central Florida (many of my friends) with an Intl Bizness degree I'd prob only would have been qualified for a 20-25k year job. It all depends on the market, your school, and what position you are qualified for.
