NY Times Gets on the "Is law school worth it?" bandwagon

Several readers sent this silly piece which, like most scares pieces in the genre, omits any real discussion of the different prospects available to students depending on the reputation of the school.  One would have to agree that it is not prudent to borrow a quarter million dollars to get a law degree from Thomas Jefferson School of Law in San Diego, but does that really warrant a story in the NY Times?  (The issue about accurate data reporting by law schools, which the story also mentions, is a real one [about which we have written ad nauseam], but that issue should be detached from silly stories about students who made manifestly imprudent decisions.)
