But here is something interesting about one student, who is now $250,000 in debt:
"Mr. Wallerstein, for his part, is not complaining. Once you throw in the intangibles of having a J.D., he says, he is one of law schools' satisfied customers.
"It's a prestige thing," he says. "I'm an attorney. All of my friends see me as a person they look up to. They understand I'm in a lot of debt, but I've done something they feel they could never do and the respect and admiration is important.""
That seems like alot of money to pay to get respect. It just does not seem necessary for the price to be that high.
