but T-3 and T-4 schools are not going to live you destitute when you graduate.
Don't be so sure. Again, please reserve judgment until you graduate yourself. I've got a buddy who graduated from Buffalo and is now working for free in NYC. That's the only opportunity he had to gain some legal experience.
I know another girl who chose to forgo her six figure sales job to go to law school. Guess what she's doing now? Waiting tables in NYC.
I could go on and on and cite numerous examples of this happening out there. Unless you have some connections or the economy rebounds somehow, you're going to be in a state of shock come graduation time.
