So, today I had to go to Vanderbilt’s Law School and wait on the elevator to come and there was a bulletin board full of “buy this bike,” “become a cheerleader,” and “rent this apartment.”
I want to talk about the “Rent this apartment” sign. It said, “Perfect for students.” A one bedroom apartment in the brand new Adelicia building, which is just a block from the school, true enough. Two thousand dollars a month.
The cost of going to Vanderbilt’s law school is roughly sixty thousand dollars a year.
I’m assuming that, if you have twenty-four thousand dollars to pay for rent a year, you’re probably also paying the full sixty thousand dollars to go to law school.
Who are these people who can afford to spend eighty four thousand dollars a year without having a job?
I mean, honestly, for exactly how many students is that place “perfect” for?
Eh, well, I guess they only need one.
