    This is an interesting report but it does nothing for the plaintiffs seeking compensation from law schools because they did not get a job. A new theory on how the people who take high income high debt routes like law and medical school even business school types. There is the possibility of scamming the system, hopefully the government has the right red lines in place to prevent that.
