You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?” - Pop star Miley Cyrus on her marriage equality tattoo - - - - - - - - - - -

2012 Underemployment Rates at the U.S. News Top 25 Law Schools

If you're planning to be a lawyer, you may want to look into doing something else.  I'm not trying to be a downer or anything, but things aren't looking too bright in the U.S. News Top 25 Law Schools.  Just sayn'.

Here are the percentage of graduates who are unemployed or in short-term, part-time, or non-professional jobs 9 months after graduation.

Could this just be a sign the U.S. News rankings are way off and don’t really reflect the job market? In part, yes. The magazine’s annual list does incorporate employment outcomes as part of its formula, and some law firms pay an absurd amount of attention to it. But after going back through the data and ranking the 25 schools with the lowest underemployment, I found that only 15 of them could be found in the U.S. News Top 25. The other 10 included schools like number #76 LSU and number #126 Campbell University.

It's the reality of the situation. School can help get you a better job, but it's not guaranteed. I never completed my college years and one day I may go back, but it was never a true goal of mine. I just saw too many people in my life that got an expensive degree and never used it. Worst was to be stuck in debt from school loans and have no job to pay them. I may have dropped out of college, but I don't regret it. I have a well paying job that takes care of the bills and helps pay for our dreams to come true. Life is great.
