General Board / Re: this is about money
« on: November 22, 2006, 11:12:46 PM »
if you're going into law to make 7 figures, you're doing it wrong.

you can do that without any degree if you're skilled with people and have drive/ambition.  I know real estate agents without college degrees who hit $1-2 mil a year easily, although it's not as stable of a career.

If youre looking for money to make you happy though, you have some other issues you need to look at.  I agree, not having enough can be stressful, but having enough so you dont have to worry about it is not bad either.  Think about all the things youre gonna buy with your money.  The house, the cars, etc.  Now realize that you cant enjoy them cuz youre working so hard, and you have few friends and family left because you made money your #1 priority.  Not so great now is it?

Do something you like.  life is too short to worry about becoming materially rich.  most people who need "stuff" are usually empty on the inside anyway.  i'd rather be poor and satisfied than rich and miserable/empty.

General Board / What field of law is least stressful?
« on: July 04, 2006, 01:42:11 AM »
I'm guessing corp law is the most stressful and i would think that real estate law is the least.  is this correct? what other types of law are low stress?

General Board / Can "nice" and "lawyer" coexist?
« on: May 17, 2006, 07:46:26 AM »
I'm a nice guy.  I'm not a pushover, but I tend to take things easy and not hold grudges.  Do I have to be nasty to be a successful lawyer?

Is their the potential to make a decent living?


Not when you spell like this.  You may want to look up a career as a "Door Greeter" at Walmart.

its people like you who give lawyers a bad name.  yeah thats right, its.  no apostrophe.

what about the apostrophe in "that's"? you missed that one too.    :o

you didnt capitalize your sentences  :o

im not in law school yet or anything, but assuming all your notes are in Word format wouldnt you just need one of those thumb drives that has like 128 or 256 mb?  i mean will i really take a gig worth of notes in a semester?

General Board / Re: What can I do with a finance degree and JD?
« on: April 23, 2006, 05:00:23 PM »
If you have an interest in business law you might find it easier to do a JD/MBA program, since you already have some of the prerequisites taken care of.

You might also look into the additional classes to get a CPA and specialize in tax law. However just having an UG in a non-science field really doesn't make you stand out.




damn

i should have majored in dance or something

General Board / What can I do with a finance degree and JD?
« on: April 23, 2006, 12:43:38 PM »
I have a bachelors in finance and after law school I will have a slightly rarer combination of educations (rather than the old poli-sci/JD).  I was wondering what advantages this offers and what types of jobs look for such people

thanks
