If your interest lies in the courtroom, law school will give you opportunities to become a better speaker... but if you don't have the inclination to be before the bench, don't expect to see any change.
See, I'm not completely uninterested in being a lawyer. However, I"m going into it with the mindset that it's a good degree to have in general. I might be going into finance, maybe doing policy. I'm not sure.
What's a better investment, in terms of returns?
Having ridden the waitlist for over three or four months now, I finally got in at GMU, but part time. I'm also in at St. Johns in NYC, full time. Is it worth going to a higher ranked school part time? What do you think puts me in a better position to transfer to a better school? Still waiting on four other wait lists...
So, I was dumped expressly because I'm in LS (thus busy and w/o present income). Apparently, I'm in a relationship with LS and should have dropped out if . . .. Meh. This must be fairly common -- maybe even a right of passage for law students. It stings though. Have any of you ever been similarly dis'd on account of LS? Commiseration would be welcomed.
