General Board / Re: Law school vs. 9 to 5 job...give your opinion

I have never been as apathetic at a job as I am at mine right now, 17 days left.

I am very excited, the end of one chapter, and the beginning of the next  :).

General Board / Re: Law Schools To Avoid At All Costs!

As much as I'm glad I'm not going to a 4th tier school, I think that there is a place for these schools. After all, if there weren't some people who did well after graduating from these schools (well being a relative term); then I doubt that these schools would still have hundreds of people appying to them...

No other country has a government as arrogant as America that thinks everyone is rich. They want to "take" paychecks, destroy your credit, whatever. Shame on the US government!

Taking out student loans means that you have to pay them back. People should weigh the consequences of borrowing money against the reward of education.

Saying that no other county has a government as arrogant as the US is pretty retarded. What other country will let ambitious, potential students, regardless of economic background, borrow as much money as they want to achieve their academic and life goals.

This thread has become infantile...

[...] or maybe because you don't want to dig ditches or work for the carnival, but not for money...


Sometimes you are really funny (and frighteningly truthful), jason! 


I can't help that I've dug ditches and worked for the carnival...

5:00 a.m. Wake up leave house by 5:45 a.m., drive 45 min. to catch train, ride train for about one hour.

8 a.m.(ish)Arrive at school, prep for classes, go over cases, etc.

9 a.m. First two classes, 15 min. break-get coffee.

12:00 to 12:30 Lunch Break--Eat on campus.

12:30 p.m. (ish) Last two classes, 15 min. break-get more coffee.

4:00 p.m. Run back to train station

5:30 p.m. Arrive at work (night-time word processor, only 20 hours a week I'm a full-time student).

10:00 (ish) Leave work.

10:45 p.m. Arrive home, study, eat if interested.

Saturday and Sunday were pretty much dedicated to studying, and I would take a day or a half-day off as needed.  Ran every chance I got, or studied outside.  I was 9% at a T4.

My advice:  Avoid a long commute (it sucks), working is recommended because you are networking at the same time (even though it is a pain in the a$$), and like what you are doing (I did and it kept me motivated!!!)



Nice dedication

I agree with lalala... Go to law school because you want to be an attorney, or maybe because you don't want to dig ditches or work for the carnival, but not for money...
