Oof, I know the title debate has been raised many times and this probably comes off as elitist, but I have to vent. I just saw a guy on LinkedIn whose headline included all of his postnominals (JD, MEd, BA and AA.) His nametag calls himself "Doctor." His Facebook profile includes "JD" after his name, so his Facebook friends will know he has a law degree. His MEd was earned at a not-great reputation for-profit online school (I won't judge, I'm attending two of those simultaneously right now!) but his JD was earned at Cooley, allegedly one of the worst law schools in America (see here: https://abovethelaw.com/2018/12/the-10-worst-law-schools-in-the-country-2018/, https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2018/05/04/trump-michael-cohen-lawyer-cooley-law-school-218318/, https://lawschooli.com/should-i-attend-cooley-law-school/) I hope he does well, because at $1375 a credit the 90-credit Cooley JD program costs a cool $123K. Add another $20K for the Masters and who knows how much for the Bachelor's and AA...I don't envy his student debt.
