So the big question is.... with so many people in law school, are there any more lucrative jobs for the average law school graduate. Does it pay for me to rack up the debt by going to law school and getting a job that will only allow mediocre pay due to basic supply and demand rules. I want to be a lawyer, but if I can find another avenue to serve the public in a similar capacity, I may be inclined to take that path if the pay is similar or more. Three years is a lot of time and money to invest, to not make the money I want. It is a shame salaries are being lowered so much. Unless you are a grad from Harvard or Yale (or the alike), I am not sure lawyers can make the kind of money they used to (unless they have connections or good luck).Any insight?
