Don't Take Out Student Loans
There has been major circulation of The New York Times article by David Segal! This riveting story covers the law school scam and I have received many e mails from prospective paralegal students, parents, and unemployed professionals.
I have many parents asking me if there children should study paralegal studies or get a degree in the field. One girl even told me she is one signature away from taking out $45,000 in student loan debt to go to a for profit school to become a Paralegal.
DO NOT GO INTO DEBT! DO NOT TAKE OUT STUDENT LOANS! IT WILL MAKE YOUR LIFE MISERABLE BEYOND REPAIR!
You will not be able to buy a house, get married, have children and live a life that you have always wanted to live as a working professional. If you are hell bent on going on for more education, go to a local cheap state institution for any sort of training, whether it be vocational or grad school.
All of these scam bloggers such as Third Tier Reality, But I Did Everything Right, Subprime JD, Shilling Me Softly, Lawschoolisascam.com, First Tier toilet and the Jobless Juris Doctor do not lie!
Just like David Segal reported in his story, the odds of getting a law job paying $160,000 a year is like winning the lottery, the same thing goes for trying to find a paralegal job that pays $60,000 a year.
Going into debt is just not worth it!
