at what ranking does law school stop being worth the cost?

<p>What do you think the cutoff is for law school actually being worth the bill? honestly i don't really care about prestige, but i would like to be able to find a job that would allow me to pay back my student loans.</p>

<p>Here's a link that helps you find the best law school for you.</p>

<p>Law</a> School Ranking Game: Indiana Law</p>


<p>Only the top 25-30 schools in this ranking are really worth going to, unless you are okay doing public interest, government or personal injury work.</p>

<p>No precise figures are available; I'd offer the rule that if you go to a tier 2 school or below, you would need top of class/Law Review to be competitive for jobs.</p>

unless you are okay doing public interest, government

Most public interest and federal government work is also very school-picky.</p>

<p>I am debating if I want to go to law school but did decided that if I want to be a lawyer I will pursue it, even if that means not attending a school ranked in the top tier region by USNEWS. If you really want to be a lawyer, ofcourse you will give preference to the top tier schools but if financially reasonable like any school choice I wouldn't rule out your other options.</p>
