If you think the amount of debt isn't relevant, you're deluded.
I didn't say it was not relevant. I know when you graduate from law school you can legally appraise homes and contract the selling rights. That's called being a real estate agent and using your law degree to save money.
Law school doesn't teach you how to do that.
I spoke with a legit entertainment agent through a summer program at UCLA. A question asked at the seminar was "would a law degree help at one of the top three agencies in Los Angeles (non-legal employment)?" The response was that "yes, a law degree would put you in the fast lane."
Hmm, that is interesting to know. Maybe I will become an entertrainment agent and hang with stars all day. Thanks for the info. I will do some more research on it later.
