On Law School

Isn't having a JD awesome?  All those 6-figure job opportunities and an endless amount of open doors! Just kidding.  It sucks, and anyone who's graduated in the bottom 80% knows what I'm talking about.  Rather than 6-figure job salaries, most law graduates have 6-figure student loans.  And if you're disappointed with the stagnant legal job market, just wait until you get a load of what non-legal human resource departments think of your JD.  No matter.  If you can't find a law firm position, you can always just teach law, right?  (Try not to bust a gut from laughing so hard.)
