Overheard in Law School

Career planning counselor:“Well, sometimes it helps me to imagine the worst case scenario. So what’s the worst case scenario?”

Law Student: “Not getting a job when I graduate law school in two months so I’m unable to meet my living expenses or pay back student loans, and then I’ll have to live in a cardboard box in Central Park.”

Career planning counselor:“Yeah, but at least you’ll have your health.”
