It's hard to generalize.

Most Harvard graduates will be making 160k a year.
Most graduates of online law schools won't be working as lawyers.

45k isn't altogether uncommon (especially with third and fourth tier law schools). There is a lot of unemployment too.

Now who's being naive?

No, nealric is lying.  We all make $200K, drive Lamborghinis, and have multiple supermodels on tap for recreational sex.  Don't let anyone know I told you, though, or they'll kick me out of the bar association.
