How much ad revenue can various for profit blogs reap off the misery and misfortunes of a desperate and depressed law student?

A lot, apparently. I’m not going to link to any of them, because whether they are being disgustingly licentious or self-aggrandizingly professing great concern, at the end of the day they are all about the links and the clicks and the page ranks, and the money the story generates. The law student wants the story to quiet down. She couldn’t have been clearer about that. There are plenty of avenues to privately offer help and support to her, if that is what somebody truly wanted to do. Here is just one idea that anybody with a passing familiarity with law schools and a shred of decency would have thought of: Contact the appropriate Dean of Students and ask someone there to pass along good wishes, and faciliate the private direction of any monetary gifts.
