You have to have about 8400 'practical hours of experience' before taking the PE unless you have gotten some credit from graduate engineering work + co-op. Are you planning to go to LS part time?
I think you should attend law school. Is Widener your only option?
I work for a civil engineering company right now, and the CEO is an engineer who got a J.D. from Duqaine (sp) in Pittsburh, which is T4. I think having a J.D. is very useful in the engineering business. All the J.D's that I know in this business are making 120K and higher.
I nominate Giraffe the most gorgeous poster on LSD
what type of law do you want to do then? howcome not patent law??
Even if you get a full ride scholarship you will be giving up 3 years of salary at 85k,
What is it that is motivating you to attend law school? Is it b/c you are bored? Wish to learn about law?
Just wanted to say that you are awesome and you can do it! As a mom to 3, I know my law school experience will be different than my classmates, but I have different tools than they do. We won't approach studying the same way, but it will be okay, and it will work out, precisely BECAUSE I (and YOU) have priorities in order. Once you have kids and spouse, they simply have to come first because they are they best part of life and the only thing that endures. Good luck to you!
