Short Post on JD Degree for Sale on Ebay

This has been addressed more fully by others already, but here is a reference to it courtesy of the Jobless Juris Doctor:

My point is the seller's reference to a "mid-life" attempt at law school and her resulting frustration. She has given it the old college try for six years, and now she feels like selling her degree is the only way to recoup her investment.

Don't take it from me non-trads, take it from her.

  1. There are LEGIONS of JDs who would gladly trade in their law degree and license in exchange for a clean slate of their student debt. What does that tell you?

    I only took out $37K for my TTT law degree from Third Tier Drake. I would literally have my JD wiped off my record for $37K - which I would immediately apply to my student loans. I would even be fine with my student loans from undergrad. I could then make double - or triple - payments on that figure and be free from student debt in 5 years.

  2. I've just applied to study a law degree and am in a very similair position. I've got savings from summer work and have been granted a scholarship, I'm still worried as to whether or not I'll have the funds to complete my degree...don't see my parents selling the house to help me out so I guess it'll have to be a part time job while studying for me. If you can do it I don't see why I can't.
