Minority and Non-Traditional Law Students / My first Post!
« on: October 08, 2008, 01:57:18 PM »
Hi everyone,
I just wanted to take a peek into this forum and see if I have what it takes to potentially pursue a career in Law.
I'm 31 years old, have a B.S. in Mass Communications/PR from St. Cloud State University (class of '99)...I never used my degree and ended up working in the mortgage business for the past 6 years as a processor and underwriter. I recently left the biz (thank god, considering all the turmoil its in now) and am working as an Admin Asst. for the University of Minnesota and also taking a couple classes here part time. I have been interested in healthcare for the past year or so (mainly becuase I have always been fascinated by it, partly because my father has been ill and I would like to learn more and have dissatisfied with the whole hospital system). In fact, I was planing on taking pre-reqs for Pharmacy or Medicine. wrong choice. The math and science is driving me crazy! I hate it!! Then, I got to thinking, I am more into the advocacy and policy of healthcare, not so much the practice. So I started looking up law school information with the emphasis of Public Health policy and research and thought..well, maybe that is more my style? I don't know..maybe its all a pipe dream and I have no idea what I am doing (aside from doing crummy in my chemistry class) Any advice for me?
