Ban Law Schools

Not that long ago I met someone who said she was $200K in debt from law school with no realistic hope of getting the kind of high paying job that can service that debt. I'd heard the numbers before, of course, but meeting an actual human in that situation brought it home a bit more.

I really don't understand how people of immense privilege can fail to see the reality of the con they're running, or how more generally people bitching about the kids today and their iphones and bippity bop don't get how even people who supposedly did the right thing (as their elders advised them to) are starting life basically screwed. 25 with a mortgage without a house attached to it.
