My friend just graduated UCLA law, top 3rd of the class. 300k in debt, no job for months except a minor paid internship (15 an hour) that specifically said "we will not hire you after your internship". Top it all off, she's a shopaholic.
It's gotten to the point that people are saying "She can always marry someone rich".
Didn't need to go to law school/debt to do that :\
