Really, though. "You got in where? Oh, well I guess that's good.. personally I'd rather killself but I'm sure it'll be at least 5 years before you seriously regret it." Ouch.

Nice is the last thing you should be to someone when they're about to drop 200k on a school with few employment prospects.  That's borderline neglect, IMO, like telling your friend who's about to go to Antartica that they know someone who's happy with his decision.

i don't know that a random poster on an internet message board is going to convince a stranger not to go to a particular school.  not everybody is as impressionable as you, walls ;)

if the poster ASKED for advice on where s/he should go, then that's a different story.  but to offer or support that opinion when it is unsolicited, immediately after a person posts about being excited for his/her first law school acceptance?  poor taste.

Exactly.

Sorry. I was too hasty.

I just felt a sense of alarm on hearing that someone was really considering going to Touro - it may be the right decision for some - but the calculus is skewed so that it is not often the right decision.

I do hope you remember this advice when you are choosing which law school to go to, however. I don't mean to be condescending (I know it could seem that way), I just really hope you make the right life decision.

Best of luck!
