I apologize in advance for posting here even though I haven't even started my 1st year yet. I am set to begin at New York Law School this August and, for years, have had serious doubts as to whether I should even go to law school. I'm not looking for someone to make a decision for me...I just need advice. I would go so far as to say that I feel like I might be ruining my life by going. More detail:

-I know that I "could" succeed as a law student
-I do want to get into politics

HOWEVER

-I am terrified and do not really want to go to law school
-My family has been the real driving force behind the law school idea (incredibly controlling people)
-They have convinced me that I will NEVER make enough money with a job I obtian with just my BA in public management.

My question is (and i know this seems rather pathetic)...is it really true that I will fail in this day and age without a law degree? If there is anyone here who has worked a regular job and done well, please speak up.I have fought going to law school for months. But everytime I speak to my family about just getting a job its as if world war III has been unleashed. I don't want to make a huge mistake yet I feel that I am flying towards one here. Should I just run and get a job and forget this whole law school thing?? Help!!

Where should I go next fall? / New York Law School

I am supposed to be starting NYLS in August and all I keep hearing are horrible things (ie. bad advising, poor job prospects, overcrowding, the start of new construction this summer etc..). Does anyone have anything AT ALL that they know and would like to share with me about the school? I'm really on the verge of just going somewhere else. Help!
