3 Debt does not just suck, it really sucks. “Don’t worry about it” they said. “It’s like just having one extra bill a month.” “Law school pays for itsself.” Sound familiar? Yeah, because everyone who went to college in the 1970s assumed that college was basically the exact same kind of deal 40 years later.
Well, it turns out, they were wrong. Law school tuition cost has risen between 2.5 and 5.3 times the inflation rate. So, next time some retired and rich lawyer says “It’s totally worth it. Even if you don’t go into law, having a degree is very valuable,” you should probably punch them in the face.
