Or maybe the satisfaction numbers would be lower

It's a two-pronged legal analysis:

1.
"58 percent of graduates with medical degrees said it was worth the cost.

2.
"median private sector salary for J.D. recipients is $68,300, and the median public sector salary is $52,000.


This should be mandated on top of every law school application by the surgeon general, like a pack of cigarettes.

That's it. I enjoy my practice, but was the process and degree worth the money and opportunity cost? I'd lean towards no.

1. Lawyers are broke and unhappy.

2. Doctors are rich and not so unhappy.

3. 3d generation welfare queens are rich and gleeful:

Taylor a “parasitic growth,” a leech who gleefully extracted taxpayers’ money.

Taylor didn’t help her legal team sell the idea that she was a piteous victim. The AP described her courtroom attire as “brightly colored mod outfits with sparkling rings and bracelets,” a gaudy wardrobe that gave TV crews and newspaper photographers the perfect welfare queen action shot. Isaiah Gant, who eventually took over Taylor’s case from his colleague Pincham, says she’d position herself to be seen by the cameras but would not deign to speak. “Doing interviews would have made her commonplace,” Gant says.

It will be interesting to learn the breakdown per graduating year. For people who graduated in 2000, their memories of the worth of their education will likely differ from those that graduated in 2009.

Also it would have been helpful to know how much the education actually cost them and how that factored into the analysis. I am kinda satisfied with what I got in law school, but I would have a totally different opinion if I had gotten a full ride, or if my scholarship was less than what I received.
