Too Many Lawyers?

Postby LSAT_Tutor » Sat Jan 14, 2012 4:01 am

the double digit drops in LSAT takers almost every quarter for 7 quarters in a row suggests but does not prove this. people may not want to go to law school because they simply can't afford it due to bad economy.

i feel like the economy is taking a toll on every sector. But that doesn't mean that you should just sit by and not do anything or try to do anything.

If I'm going to do anything, might as well do something that I really want to do and work really hard at making it successful then not do it and fail before even trying.

You don't need to be rich to go to Law school. You need a pulse and a modicum of lucidity sufficient to warrant a promissory note.

If it was a matter of affordability, tuition rates would have dropped pursuant to basic Economic principles.

It is a fact of our economy that jobs are getting harder to find and salaries are going down, especially if you do not have an "in" somewhere. However, that is true in almost all professions. If you are going to law school to get rich, it probably is not going to happen. A law degree is a valuable asset in almost any business position, you do not have to actually practice law to make good use of a law degree.

Deleted my post. Made an unfair statement.
