Grad Tries To Sell His Law Degree On Craigslist For $210,000
A lot of college degrees actually are useful in the real world - for example, I studied Music Business at Full Sail University. Now I get to play and talk about music on the radio for a living! However, not everyone is so lucky.
A Florida law grad, who's drowning in so much debt, tried to sell his law degree on Craigslist for $210,000. The post reads:

This law degree is from a top tier Florida university. Picture available upon request! I'm selling my Juris Doctor because I don't use it and I'm trying to work my way out of debt slavery.This is a great opportunity for someone looking to impress their friends by obtaining a law degree from a top tier law school without having to sit through three years of boring lectures!
