Careful with law school. Market sucks for law.

I know of a lot of people that went to Northwestern and U of C law and are having trouble finding a job. Although as EY 1 said you can become a fax attorney and represent all the faxes who have been unlawfully replaced by computers 😂

Market doesn't suck for law ^ market sucks for law students from schools having no business offering the degree. The higher education money rush and availability of loans has led to dozens of schools, including for-profits, to begin offering degrees. Go to the ABAs site and Law School Transparency to check out employment statistics and learn about how schools inflate their figures and how to spot it

Big pay gap. Bunch of my friends/acquaintances are lawyers. The ones that graduated from top law schools are making $165k-$180k. The ones that didn't are not making much more than 1st year Public accountants

If you can spare the like $7, read "don't go to law school (unless)". It'll take you all of 2 hours to read and it provides a lot of quality information about the application process, job markets, cautions etc.

^while it is *possible* to get those jobs from Brooklyn that is very much the exception that proves the rule. The reality is that the lower down the school rankings you go, the higher you need to rank in your class to have a chance at those jobs and class rankings are a crapshoot. I have a close friend in Brooklyn now that would be ecstatic to get a 60k job as he currently has none.

BDO 1, there is no Princeton Law School....

Info here is spot on. Go if you are accepted into a T14 or if you receive a full scholarship. Otherwise, don't.

like

I'm applying for next year. Unless you have an extreme passion to be a lawyer you should only go if 1) you will get into a top 14 school or 2) you get a significant scholarship to a top regional school. This is especially true because you are already at PWC and if you don't get Big Law you will mostly likely be taking a pay cut and generally those jobs are only accessible from top schools.

As someone going through the application process right now for law schools, I can tell you there is a lot of misinformation above. If money is your concern, check out the hiring statistics for schools you could realistically get into. I would recommend prepping/taking the lsat ASAP as that will drive a lot of your options

^bingo

When I say top I don't only mean Cornell, Princeton etc. A few graduated from Brooklyn Law and are well over $150k. It's the small local colleges that started offering law degrees that put you into that low starting salary.

UPenn/Princeton same thing ☺️

There was a whole article I read recently that the top law firms are even demoting/firing partners.

You can go to a top 14 school and still struggle if you don't know what you want to do with your life

Pros: you wouldn't be an accountant, you can start your own practice more easily.
