Indeed. I know this girl who just graduated from a T4 with hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt. According to her facebook status updates, she's just praying for a waitressing job at this point. And if/when she does get a legal job, it certainly won't be paying $100k+. But, she's a lawyer!Sadly, I also know several recent grads of top state/regional schools, and a even a few t14 grads, who are similarly resigning themselves to whatever non-legal job they can find. But ex ante, the potential reward still might equal or outweigh the risk of unemployment at those schools.
I go to a tier 4 school I can talk about it personally I know more than one person.

Look on law school numbers it is the best site for those kind of questions.
I know with a bachelor's degree who has never had a job period. Education is a risk I hope it is not news to anybody, but that is the way it is. No school has your back at the end of the day if your a Harvard Grad and you fail the bar your not getting your tuition money back same things applies at Cooley. It is a tough profession to get into and it may or may not work out. You someone on facebook with a law degree is looking for a waitress job wow I know a guy who recently graduated from GGU making 200,000 a year right now. Those are both extreme examples and for the majority of people it will be somewhere in the middle they will probably find a job making 50K or 60k at the beginning and as you get more experience like in any field your pay will increase that is the general rule in any business.
Yes the loans will be a female dog to pay off. You can do income-based repayment, defer your loans, etc. It is a huge financial risk and not something you should take lightly, but at the end of the day you are learning a skill that you will have for 40 years the rest of your life actually. This girl working as a waitress will probably find a legal job at some point. That is why I say that a degree lasts your entire life getting yoru foot in the door in any industry is hard.
F*cking bi+ch drinks a 1 oz bottle of goose and thinks she's French
