Most law students are so heavily indebted these days that theyll try to find any way to pay off their law school loans. Some have even taken to competing on game shows to win enough money to give themselves a net worth of zero.

Meet our latest game show contestant,Kristan Burns. Kristan is a second-year student at the University of New Mexico School of Law, and she appeared on Wheel of Fortune last night where she tried to spin for the win.

The military spouse and mom of one says shes been trying to get on the show for years. While she didnt win, Burns says the experience was a dream come true.

I got to meet Vanna and I got to meet Pat, and they were both incredibly, just wonderful, friendly people. It was an amazing day. Like one of the best days ever, she said.

Kristan thought she might have hit the jackpot by hitting the million-dollar mark, but at the end of the day, she went bankrupt not once, but twice. Sounds like some sort of metaphor for the entire law school experience. She wound up walking away with $8,000 in winnings, that she says will help with law school.

Check out her episode below. Congratulations, Kristan!
