The reason law students are more depressed then med students is because even the bottom student that makes it through medical school becomes a doctor with the first job paying 6 figures.  the law student knows the chance of waiting tables is very real and even if you get a job, very good chance you'll end up working for a tyrant.  hmm, bleak future for most law students versus very bright future for med students.  i wonder why law students are depressed

The solution is for the ABA to stop approving so many schools.  Seriously, T3 and T4 schools are essentially worthless to the profession.  I would say even most schools outside of the T6 probably are. 

In the meantime, depressed law students will just have to get by on this:

I'm not "advertising" porn; the link just failed.  There was a picture of a beautiful woman earlier.  I apologize that there is no longer.  Besides, it was topical--I pointed a means depressed law students could use to get by.

I said most schools outside of the T6 are worthless.  The leaders in the profession are effectively these six schools.  The other eight of the T14 are OK, but could use a boost in their standards.

Many graduates of T3/4 and even some T1/2 schools are unable to find work without graduating above a certain decile level.  A lot aren't able to even pass the bar.  This is in contrast to medicine, where even an average student at an unknown (but accredited) school can find good work.

The ABA should stop approving so many schools, as I said earlier, but it should also crack down on those which refuse to raise their standards.  Honestly, if your school's bar passage rate is below, say, 90%, the school isn't doing it's job (recruiting and training effective lawyers) and should be denied ABA accreditation.

You are excused.
Let me introduce myself. I, the pompous, am a part of all human personalities. I exist more in some people than in others.  I am the part of your personality that takes control of you when you just have to be on top. I make you want to be on top, and it doesn't matter if you beat the best competitio
