The salary to debt ratio at these law schools is highly concerning, to say the least. Query whether the ABA should even allow these law schools to operate. But I digress.
If you attend one of these law schools, you’ll more than likely be saddled with a huge debt burden that will be almost impossible to pay off in a reasonable period of time. Imagine the prospect of practicing law for 30 years and still having student loan debt. Not a pretty picture.
Here’s my advice to any student who attends one of these law schools: work your butt off to get the highest possible grades during 1L and transfer. Have a question about transferring law schools? Post a comment in the Transfer Q&A and I’ll get back to you!
