If you don't want to be a lawyer, is Law School definitely
not worth it?

You are leaving a little info out!  Are you independently wealthy in search of knowledge?  A chance to stretch some brain cells? Looking for a new challenge?  Sure, I would think its worth it if thats what you choose to do.  Why do you want to go?  Whats in it for you?  If you arent independently wealthy then is it worth $100,000 debt load to go?  Only you know the answer to that one....

If I won the lottery and became a gazillionaire i'd still go to law school for fun. I'm genuinely excited about the educational experience and the benefits of that experience sans actually practicing law. But of course, i'm not a gazillionaire so I will have to actually earn money off the education after i'm done.

If you're rich or don't have a family you're responsible for, then go for it.

I would pay Tuition of only $7,000/year, and believe that critical thinking and articluation takes precedence over any other life or career skill.
