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.
