[...]Fourth, if you can make $30/hr now and you don't want to be a lawyer, than don't be a lawyer. [...]
I understand, being called "lawyer" is important for some people, although for the next 10-15 years after they finish school they'll have less money on their hands than, say, the paralegal working for them ..
of course a lot of those jobs that pay 25/hr dont give overtime.
I met a guy in law school who had an interesting approach to reducing his student loan debt. He told me during our second semester at Florida State that he had already borrowed some $70,000 in student aid and intended to borrow an additional $120,000 by the time he graduated. He drove a brand new Mercedes, lived in the most expensive apartment complex and had already paid for an expensive off campus summer semester program at Oxford which he planned to attend. All of this was funded with student loans.
myron, don't ya think you're being a bit too harsh with yourself? I mean, you have to have fun and these fun things when you're young, not when you barely can stick your male private part in some hole, dontcha think?!
