The euphoria of being accepted to law schools quickly changed to fear as I realized the high amount of debt that I would have to incur to attend. I have received some scholarships and have applied for more. However, it is really stressful to think about taking on 20k+ a year to become a lawyer. I write this post not to complain but just to vent (if there is a difference) about increasing cost of a school. I mean some of these schools have literally hundreds of millions of dollars and they are charging 40k a year and giving the average student 7k a year, there is something seriously wrong. I guess in the end it will be okay, but for the record I want to make it clear that I applied to law school to become a lawyer not to get my first mortgage payment.
