What about those who don't find/receive/earn/create eternal life? What happens when they die?
Jack, love the analysis, but the opportunity cost element of this equation is overstated if you ask me.
The reasons are:
1. You will not save any of that money. You'll consume 100% of it by living day-to-day.
2. The day-to-day living is already accounted for in loans on the other half of the equation.
So, this is really taking the same variable and working against law school on both sides of the ledger.
Now, what is more accurate to say is that by working, you'll eat a little less ramen. At the end of both periods, though, you won't have anything to show for it. In the work case, you will break-even, in the LS case, you will have debt. Once you account for the debt, you account for the entire impact of not-working.
Also, I am one of the majority of law students who, no way, no how, will get a lucrative job offer upon graduation. Just won't happen.
I'm already resigned to starting my own practice, and I already know that's a road fraught with pitfalls.
Seems like the law is a great career for people who are either ultra-brainy (can pull a high class rank) or highly entrepreneurial. It is not necessarily a great move for people who are merely moderately bright and get a minimal set of credentials. (Unremarkable class rank and bar passage.) Those folks might have had a great career in the law 50 years ago. Not so much today.
I'm genuinely curious about this. Please tell me why you think it would be better to take one class at a time
Ask your mommy. I'm beginng to think there are a bunch of retards on this forum. I quit posting to this forum a while back and I am going to stop posting again. Too many uneducated people on here asking stupid common sense questions. I'm not responding to to stupid questions.
I don't like Concord because they take multiple classes at once. I think it would be better to take one, or no more than two classes at a time. Concord doesn't have a video demo of the instructor teaching class like some of the other schools do. I also don't have the bachelors to get into Concord. I need like 7 more classes. So I might have to go to one of the other schools.
