    Good for the State of "Sue" York. If these brats were smart enough to manage LSAT scores that qualified them for law school, they were smart enough to read a newspaper every now and again. Had they done so, they'd have known full well that various law firms nationwide -- and the bloated legal profession more broadly -- had been downsizing for years. They should have known that going into debt for a law degree at any point in the past six years was very risky at best, and arguably insane at worst. Caveat emptor, kids.
