A Boston College Law graduate has written the school's Dean, saying that he'll forfeit his degree as long as he can get his money back. The unnamed student has a wife and child to support, and says that the crippling debt is straining him and his family.
With fatherhood impending, I go to bed every night terrified of the thought of trying to provide for my child AND paying off my J.D, and resentful at the thought that I was convinced to go to law school by empty promises of a fulfilling and remunerative career.
The Dean has said that the school cannot guarantee a job for every graduate, because it's "one of the most difficult employment climates in the past 70 years, not only for BC Law, but for all schools across the nation."
