How much would you pay to go see graduation at New York Law School? Nothing? Don’t be so sure. What if I asked: how much would you pay to go see a very slow moving trainwreck where you had no moral or ethical duty to save any of the passengers?
Ah ha, see, you’d pay something to see that. And one New York Law Student wants to know how much. From Craigslist:
COME SEE 300 OR SO UNEMPLOYED LAW GRADS SWEAT OUT PAYING BACK THEIR LAW SCHOOL LOANS!
Graduation is tomorrow and tickets are still available! Let’s check out all the details…
I’ll admit, I laughed for about five minutes when I saw this ad:
It’s pretty sad that the legal economy has turned pomp and circumstance into fear and loathing. But trying to find some way, any way, to sell what you have is probably a skill a lot of recent law graduates need to learn.
And if that $350 price tag seems a bit too high. Don’t worry, the price is negotiable down. A tipster reports:
In attempting to see who this was trying to sell free tickets for $350 each, this is the email I got in response, I guess his price went down:
Hello [Prime Time Live],
Unfortunately my transaction with the last gentleman did not go through.
If you are still interested in attending the graduation I will honor his price at $50 dollars each.
Please let me know as soon as possible.
Fifty bucks for a graduation ticket. Hey, how much do you want for the diploma itself?
