Students having doubts about law school

Attitudes are changing about a law school education, a new survey suggests.

Among students considering law school, only 68 percent said they would still apply if they understood the grim job prospects. Last year, the figure was 81 percent, reports Veritas Prep, a law school admissions consulting firm.

Another finding of the Veritas survey — the top issue for law school prospects is now landing a job that will allow loan repayment, rather than establishing an appealing long-term career.

A lot more students are expecting to finance their education through student loans, the survey found.

  1. Sixty-eight percent would still apply– those are the ones who are looking for a fulfilling career rather than a high-paying job. It is okay, in my mind, if market forces chase off the law student applicants who are in it for just the money.
