Law school absolutely should not be viewed as the next college or something to do for the next three years unless your goal is to ruin your financial future. Law school is very expensive (upwards of $150,000 in some cases), a lot of hard work, and diminished opportunity to get a good paying job that will allow significant loans to be repaid. T1, T2, T3, T4 does matter, so it is part of the equation. Right now, even T1 grads are struggling to find the high-paying jobs out there, T3s and T4s even moreso. I can think of much better ways to risk $150,000 unless you are absolutely committed to becoming a practicing attorney.
