Meh, not as good as I would have liked. Not too terrible, though.

sorry, I totally forgot to reply to this yesterday. I'll check when I get home tonight. I'm pretty sure it's the most recent edition, but I could be wrong.

The idea of going to an above average school with above average grades with an above average LSAT (as opposed to a t14 school with a 3.9 gpa and and 178 LSAT), only to graduate massively in debt and with shitty career opportunities is becomming less and less attractive as the fall 2010 application cycle nears. I am beginning to have second thoughts.

I'm curious as to the reason for the suggestions in this thread against law school. Are you current/previous law school students? Currently in the law profession? Do your feelings stem from the subject of law itself, the rigors of law school curriculum, the poor job market, or something else entirely?

Most people go to law school because they want to make decent cash in their life. People talk about how there are ways to make more money doing other things, and that, to a certain extent, is true. However, your options, outside of law, are limited. You could become an accountant (or some off-shoot of that) and try and work your way into being a CFO or CEO of a large company, but that path is just about as crappy as law. You could go into banking, but that path is probably more crappy than law (and, given that deals are likely to be structured differently going forward, not as lucrative as it once was). Your best option would be to start your own business, except that presupposes that you have the requisite entrepreneurial drive and ability (which my experience has shown that 99% of people do not have).

At the end of the day, people that go into law are subtly risk adverse individuals. I'm a corporate lawyer and I've come to terms with that. It isn't a bad option (far more stable than two of the above, likely more lucrative than the other) and don't let people try and throw out a lot of b.s. as to why it is.

yes, let's just say it's experience talking. The legal market is imploding, more law schools get accredited every year, and law schools have just been PUMPING PUMPING PUMPING out grads for the last 5 years or so. The field was saturated before the economy tanked, and now it's even worse; law school is becoming the new college (i.e. worthless). The same thing is happening to the MBA. My advice is, if you can get into a really good law school (if by "t14" you mean top 14, that's really good), you should still consider it. But whatever you do, don't go to a mid-ranked or lower law school-- not because your education will be any worse (it will be exactly the same), but it will be an uphill battle getting a job based purely on the name-value of your law school.

Ask around with lots of recent grads and see how many actually have jobs as attorneys, let alone good jobs. PM me if you want more of my sour advice.
