Don't know what IBR is, but law school is very unlikely to be an economically rational decision for 80% of law students when only 50% of law school graduates are getting jobs. Indeed, I just saw today an article in the ABA Journal referring to "massive" law school layoffs, likely lowering of admission standards and other effects from a dramatically reduction pool of law school applicants as a result of the increasing recognition that law school is a very poor choice for a very large number of attendees/graduates.
