Oh yeah, these things add up to one hell of a return on your investment. Tuition is now $30,750. I graduated in May – I work in a non-legal job making $37K a year. And I am actually doing better than many of those in my graduating class. MANY ARE STILL UNEMPLOYED! And this is not due solely to the terrible economy (Thanks, Wall Street criminals and designers of our debt-based economy), but is a symptom of a heavily-saturated market. Many are “overqualified” to work in non-law positions – I know, I had some employers tell me the same thing, i.e. “We are not sure if someone with your background will stick around here when something better comes along.” Many others simply refused to even contact me back, due to my "credentials."
Who cares if the bar passage rate for the Iowa Bar was 91% in 2007 if you can’t find a damn job in a law firm (any size), government, or in the private business sector upon graduation!!
