General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / DON'T DO IT!!

Unless you're a rockstar with a 3.9 college GPA (from a respectable school) and a 175 or above LSAT score, law school is a huge mistake.  The only way getting a law degree is worth it in this economic climate is if the school pays YOU for the privilege of attending all 3 years, pays your room and board, your food, your entertainment needs, your bar prep class (nothing beats Barbri), your Bar Exam fees, your MPRE fees, your moral application fees, all fees associated with extra-curriculars like law review, journals, legal externships, clerkships, etc.  The only way a respectable law school will pay you to attend is if you are a rockstar and they can brag about you in their school stats.  Being able to put esquire after your name and having people call you "counselor" is hardly worth being crushed under the weight of $150k of debt.  The bank doesn't care that there's more lawyers out there than jobs; like a good loan shark, it will threaten to break your legs if you don't come up with the cash by the due date.  And the bank's threats are hardly empty.  Don't figure that just because you excel in law school and pass the bar exam on the first try that you are guaranteed anything; you are guaranteed nothing.  With debt that mounts by the day, the beloved law school that you are now fighting so hard to be accepted into will have you by the balls and you will be contemplating crimes you learned the legal repercussions of in first year criminal law.  Even as I write this I know it will do little to deter the majority of determined students who think a juris doctor is the answer right now.  It probably wouldn't have deterred me back then either.  But then again, I never read such an unglowing review.  Everyone deserves to be informed; this is your informing.

Signed,

Disillusioned in Cali

I know this is a d*ck comment, but if I were you I'd save my money and forget about law school altogether UNLESS you can get a school to pay you to attend.  Getting to put esquire after your name or having people call you "counselor" is going to seem of very little comfort when you're being crushed under $150k of debt.

The best way to learn any subject is see how all the principles interact and work together in real world application.

I found this sample complaint.  It shows how torts interact with civ pro in a real style complaint.  Also shows personal jx, supp jx and venue.
