That is a fair way to deal with it.

However, my point is that if a college grad b**tched and moan** that they couldn't get a job and had debt etc and said nobody should ever go to college, you would say no you should probably start looking for a job not b**th on the internet about it.

Eventually that college grad would find a job, but it would take time. If this college grad simply said nobody should ever go to college you would say that is not necessarily true.

If this college grad went to Humboldt State expecting to make $200,000 at graduation will then you said that was never going to happen. Did the college grad go in with common sense and have realistic expectations?

If yes then college can be a great idea if not they will be bitter. Not much different than law school.

To bring up a point that another poster brought up already undergrad is the new high school diploma, so your argument is equate to saying "If someone asks if eating the core food groups is worth it...............lets all eat shitpie"
NOT the same thing man.

Fair enough and I like the analogy, but the argument will soon be a graduate degree is the new hs diploma. There are countless people with bachelors that are not getting any jobs at all.

The overall gist is that starting a career is hard and finding your first like "real" job is a really hard. Most if not all professional jobs want you to have education and experience, but how can you get experience if they will not you without experience?

People eventually figure it out, but it is a pain in the ass. Then once you get your first job you are overworked and underpaid and it is far from perfect and it is work.

Unless there is some easy to get, high paying, challenging & fulfilling when I want it to be, but doesn't get in the way of my life job out there. I think whatever career path you choose it is a bit of a rat race and law is one of many career paths with its pros and cons.

However, I think one of the primary reasons many law school students is because people have unrealistic expectations and think upon graduation you will be handed some high paying job that allows you to only work on interesting cases etc, but that is not the case.

Your first legal job will be hard to get and you will be overworked and underpaid just like everyone else that starts out.

And overall I think we agree with eachother, especially on the most critical point.............everyone loves *&^% pie...........

I think we are over analyzing little stuff so much due to low traffic on here lately. I am glad the TLS "was going to take the lsat 3 years ago and 1000 posts back but still haven't done it yet but am posting on 3L and bar exam topics anyways as if I have a clue" posters aren't here. But SOME Life would be nice to see.
