Towelie's analysis presumes that everyone goes to law school to go into private practice. Certainly, going to a costly law school makes it more difficult to do anything but take a high-paying law firm job immediately after graduation. But many people go to law school because they want to be DAs or defenders, and they frequently go to schools that are more affordable in order to acheive their dreams. Temple is a school that attracts a fair share of these folks because of its trial advocacy program. To say that they are "screwed" out of their first choice of jobs ignores this reality.
