You have a lot of growing up to do and a lot to learn son.
First, read my post above. Next, do some research. Those who make low income DON'T go into real debt. They go into income based repayment. They make as low as 0 payments each month and it builds good credit and then goes away on its own after 20 years without even having to do bankruptcy. So if you are the loser who can't get along with grown ups and gets stuck at Kmart you still come out ahead. Lower unemployment, good credit, and assuming someday you pull your head out of your ass........ a grown up job with a tie like the big boys.You are joking right? Why get a JD to work in a job not requiring a JD? The guy with a JD flipping burgers is not "unempluyed?" Maybe not for the Bureau of Labor, but from a practical standpoint of getting a fair measure of worthiness of law school education he is. Spend $100K so you can be "employed" making $25K/year? MADNESS to do it and madness to justify it!!!
Anyone can play silly games with statistics -- bottom line is if you get a JD you generally do it to be an attorney. If you are not working as an attorney, you should be counted as "unemployed" when it comes to measuring the employment percentage for law school graduates. Yes, a trifling handfull go to law school with no intention of practicing law, but that number is so inconsequential it does not register.
The 99% are 99% of the problem.point? unemployment is lower. If that means you have to get a JD to work at BK fine. Do that or join the bread line.
