Addendum: Useful tool to check before reading this article. http://www.top-law-schools.com/rankings.html Alright. So we have the ABA refusing to require law schools to accurately and completely report their employment and starting salary statistics to prospective students, and the Dean at Northeastern (USNWR Ranked 94, which I personally must opine is a Third Tier Toilet, in this economy), saying the critical thinking skills we earn from school outweighs the probability that you could be a JD working at McDonald's. Okay, Dean -- then allow me to pay your tuition with nothing more than critical thinking skills, and get back to me. Lesson Learned? Attend a Top-30 or higher rated law school, or bust. And even then, be top 10-20% rank in your class, or waste. You know it's bad when even Harvard and Yale Law graduates are jobless, and in six-figure debt to top it off. Godspeed, 1Ls. Godspeed.
