okay. here's something i'm pouring over right now.i currently live in az, but i've found a position that i can take w/a very large firm in Chicago (family's there). now this firm wants a committment of a year for this position and is looking for that person to possibly want a career in law all the way up to an attorney. you receive full benefits, work 40hrs/wk, and probably get paid quite well. bearing this in mind, would you:a) take the job in chicago and stay w/them for a year with the possibility that they would pay for you to probably go to law school part-time (guessing) when you wanted to (and of course got accepted into a program), knowing that it might put your plans for school off by 2yrs max (you're 30 right now, btw, lol)?
Remember, however that even 'family connections' can go down the tubes due to unforseen circumstances. You want to assure that even if your family 'incubator' dries up that you can stand on your own. Not to mention, you might decide you want to practice something different than they do. Definitely protect your hireability first and foremost.
