A relief to find that California still scores some bonus points in education; where I spent two years in State college ($71/semester); two years in U.C. ($240/quarter); and 3 years in U.C. law school ($700/year). UC law tuition now in the high $20's, but that's still a fair bargain. A few inexpensive ways to get a law degree in Cal: 1. spend 1st 2 yrs at Community College; 2. transfer to U.C.; 3. law school at U.C.; Plan B: 1. clerk with a lawyer and read the law (I'm not certain you even need a B.A.); 2. take and pass the Cal "baby" bar; 3. take and pass the bar. Hang out shingle. My father never attended college. Took LSAT; attended a non-ABA accredited law school at night (while driving a Dad's rootbeer truck); passed baby bar & bar the first time; hung out shingle in Beverly Hills ("because," he told me, "that's where the money was") and completed his career on the Los Angeles Superior Court bench.

YES YOU CAN!!

Wow, lawyers aren't even billing out at $1000/hr these days? How will anyone pay $1000/hr tuition?

The paper libraries are an important public resource and should not be eliminated. That is why public resources are committed to building and maintaining them.
Otherwise, great post.

University of Chicago isn't a public school.

The NYTimes had this nice piece about general college inflation: http://www.nytimes.com/2008/12/03/education/03college.html?em

I'd be in rough shape if I didn't go to a state school for law school.
