hi, i am a non trad. i am accepted at a good law school, i have a good scholarship, and i think i can make a law degree work for me. i took a law class last year and liked it immsensely.
but i am still not certain i want to be an atty. and today, i started reading all these other articles saying don't go to law school unless you know you want to be an atty, and about how many leave within five years, etc. i've read them before...but they are scarier to me now.
and now--the day i was going to tell my boss i was leaving--my heart is pounding.
My questions are, are most of you non trads 100 percent sure you want to practice law? am i too old (over 30) to pursue a JD if i am not certain i want to be a lawyer?
or maybe i am just freaking out b/c it's very real. i keep telling myself, i can leave law school if it's not right for me.
