The potential good that you can do. Ever seen Ford Coppola's "The Rain Maker?" Great movie and inspiration. I'm actually interested in law and want to fight for the little guy and can care less of the money (especially since I don't care I attend a third tier toilet). I know you have actually heard this a million times, but my reason is genuine as I've been working for over ten years now in a successful corp job (and still do through LS) and will give up salary when I switch careers. Most people in my PT program are alot older with successful careers and I'd say the older they are, the chances they are in school is to just learn law. To pursue something they are actually interested in and not chasing the dollars. It seems that the younger wipper snappers are the ones that are in it for the money. And of course there is nothing wrong with that.
It seems a lot of people complain that law school and life as an attorney involves a lot stress, long hours, and depression. I got a decent LSAT score but I've lately been thinking I would rather be a paralegal because I can still work in law but I would also have time to do other stuff like play with my future kids, sit on the couch and drink beer, and read mystery novels, etc.So, I'm wondering what the draw is for you current students. Besides high salaries, what about working as a lawyer attracts you to the career despite the negatives? A ton of people go to law school, so there must be some good things I haven't thought of yet.
