Ditto. 55.5K... I just got really nauseated.
Be happy it's not 73!
I honestly do not understand how schools think we can afford them. I do not wish to be broke until I'm 55 years old. Maybe I'm not cut out for law school
Back in the day, it would've been okay to take on that kind of debt... I think law schools are hoping we don't realize how times / job prospects have changed haha.
BUT on a slightly more optimistic note, the Federal Reserve is printing so much money that our loans will be worth about 3/4 what their worth now by the time we're paying them back. Meh, still scary haha.
Really though: I've also been asking myself if law school is worth it lately. I keep coming back to "yes, it is" because this is really what I want to do. Nonetheless, it would have been nice to go to law school a few years back when we would've gotten wined and dined by firms upon graduation...
