Yes it costs way too much $$$ to attend law school (and you can't discharge your debt). But take all the negative advice on here with a grain of salt. The people that did well and got jobs probably aren't sitting on web forums talking about it. So just remember that.
After reading all the negative things about Hastings last year, I was second guessing my decision. But I used that to light a fire up under me b/c I realized what was on the line. Just know you have to not only work hard, but you also have to work smart. Coming to Hastings was a great decision for me. I'd be happy to answer questions as an "unjaded" Hastings student.
