    From the qz.com article:

    “‘ Only 3.7% of borrowers have balances of more than $100,000,'”

    …and they all posted comments about the UO law school salary e-mail message last week.

    “…the biggest borrowers are typically those preparing to be doctors, lawyers and other professionals who make some of the best salaries and are best able to pay off their loans.”

    Again, the anecdotes from those disgruntled, underemployed law grads contradict, or at least complicate, this facile statement.
