connecticut is a big suburb of NYC on one end and Boston on the other end. presumably their grads are working in either of those two cities
Ya'll need to put this debt thing into perspective. Even at 50k you only owe what is essentially a mortgage on a condo for crying out loud and probably at a lower interest rate.
I hear what you all are saying about how 50k isn't all that bad and that there is a whole lot of upward mobility. However, I think the point is that you can go to ANY law school and make at least 50k upon graduation. A top tier, much less top 20 school, should put its graduates in an even "better" situation.

Won't leave much for things like, say, eating. The expectation (or even strong possibility) of a salary of $50K is probably just not enough for most people to reasonably justify three years of law school and the debt that comes with it - even those who aren't in it for the big money need to know they'll have enough to pay off their debt AND have some semblance of a life, besides. $50K, at least in any mid-size-to-large city, ain't gonna do it.
