Well, I just don't want to be a JD holder making BA money...that's all. I mean, its just a bad investment to spend 100,000 and have no returns, even if it is fun and stimulating. This just makes the JD degree a luxury. All in all, I just want to know if my Higher T3(all my T3s have ratings comparable to T2s) and my lower T2s will do if I graduate from one of them. Will they just hang on the wall or will I actually get the respect that a lawyer is due. What tier do you have to be not be just a paralegal or a clerk the rest of your life? I'm just happy making the average 90,000/yr that is considered the AVERAGE in the profession.
I didn't notice that, but I did notice that UVA's 75th went up to 135K. That's better than HYS.
you'd kill yourself if you made $50k?outside the t14, those 6 figure jobs are hard to come by. at BU and other top XX schools, you have to be top quarter or top 1/3 to get 6 figs. or else, you are scrounging for a job, hoping to make $50k or $70k. i'm guessing BU's biglaw cut off is top 1/3
Or if you want to have a family. If law school loans are equivalent to one mortgage, then how are you going to pay for a real bricks-and-mortar mortgage, plus day care? They keep having stories about how women who graduated from prestigious law schools are leaving the workforce to have children, but I don't understand how they're making loan payments. Maybe they all have trust funds and went to law school to meet a husband?
