The mainstream media is taking notice.

This article talks about how Whittier Law School has become the first accredited law school to shut its doors, how grads from Harvard, Yale, Stanford find work but other than that, it's a big scramble for grads from lower schools to eek out a living.

Kids, I won't bore you with my own details, but suffice to say, going to law school was the biggest mistake of my life. I was young and stupid. I took the advice of the older adults in my life, my parents who had been hoodwinked by "the scam" and told me they'd be disappointed if I didn't push myself to the full potential, the law school recruiters who told me there were all sorts of opportunities and getting a JD is the greatest thing since sliced bread.

The Internet wasn't as big then as it is now...and there wasn't any info or any warnings out there. You youngsters have had sufficient warning though, so if you go to law school only to end up unemployed and unemployable, don't say you weren't warned.

Pre-internet, we had to rely on Hollywood movies for career advice.
