For sale: 'Useless' law degree
A friend just forwarded me a Craigslist posting from the San Francisco area advertising "My Law Degree (Seriously)."
According to the listing, the individual decided that after years of practicing law, "I have come to the conclusion that my law degree is useless and I don't want to be a lawyer anymore."
The degree -- which is from an unnamed "prestigious law school" -- cost more than $100,000 but is yours for the "bargain basement price of $59,250, which is the current value of my remaining student loan balance."
Still interested? Here are some more details:
This will permit you to be surrounded by hobby-less [jerks] whose entire life is dictated by billing by the hour and being [jerks]. 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 [paper] 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 [lady], now suck it. Sincerely, President of the University"
Added Bonus: It's from one of those elitist ... institutions that accept people like George W. Bush cause their daddy donated $20 million i.e. Cornell, Penn, Harvard, Yale, Columbia, Georgetown, Duke, Tijuana Tech, etc. Instead of donating $20 million you can have it for the low low price of $59,250 or best offer.
