After several years of practicing law with a bunch of nerds in Silicon Valley I have come to the conclusion that my law degree is useless and I don't want to be a lawyer anymore. Though I spent over $100,000 on it I am willing to sell it for the bargain basement price of $59,250, which is the current value of my remaining student loan balance.

This priceless collectible will permit you to be surrounded by hobby-less assholes whose entire life is dictated by billing by the hour and being anal dickheads. Additionally, this piece of paper has the amazing ability to keep you from doing what you really want to do in life, all in the name of purported prestige and financial success. Finally, girls in the Marina will swoon with retarded thoughts of sugar daddy when they hear you went to XXX prestigious law school and are a lawyer.

Act now as supplies are limited and this crap takes three years to make. DISCLAIMER: this piece of shit isn't even written in English. It's in Latin or something, but I have the translation. It says "Haha. We took your tuition money bitch, now suck it. Sincerely, President of the University"

Added Bonus: It's from one of those elitist BS institutions that accept people like George W. Bush cause their daddy donated $20 million. Instead of donating $20 million you can have it for the low low price of $59,250 or best offer.

This is actually a serious post. I will really sell this piece of shit.

Any buyers? I swear, as a licensed broker, if there were a futures market for law school degrees, I would be shorting the hell out of it right now. The bubble has exploded just like the housing bubble. Going into law school right now is like buying an overpriced McMansion with an adjustable-rate mortgage. Unless it is something you are absolutely sure that you are going to use and love for the next 10-20 years, you'd better look at other options. If you are a 1L with mediocre to low grades, drop out now - there's still time left. Be smart and cut your losses.
