i agree w/ the no debt rationale.... butt, you don't wana be a 30 year old intern answering to whiny ada's.. law school sucks, if you're gona do it, get it over w/ young IF YOU CAN...also, being an associate billing 2000 plus hours seems alot more doable younger than older if you do the private big law route..
What would you guys consider average schools, in terms of us news rankings?
Are you joking; T25 is by definition, above average.
Worst time to be a lawyer? Not if you are in Biglaw.Now if you are planning on opening a solo practice or if you go to a marginal school, well, sure it's a bad time to be a lawyer.... But that would be the case even in the best of times.
