I certainly don't mean to discourage anyone, not that I think I did, but...If you really think $160k is a lot of money and that it's worth the hours, talk to me in 5 years.The fact is you can find a job straight out of college and within 5 years be making closer to $300k.I sell tech for a living now. The guy who sits next to me works from 8:30-5:30, monday through friday. He's been doing this for 4 and a half years. He is pulling in $350k a year and doesn't have to work weekends, get emergency calls from clients in the middle of the night, or worry about work. He bought a house last year and paid it off this year.He comes in, sells stuff to his customers, and goes home.The point here is that there are jobs out there where you can make more. There are jobs out there that don't require much of an education.I've only been doing it for 2 and a half years, and never really put too much effort into it, and I'm going to clear $75k this year. If I decided not to go to law school, I could easily be making 6 figures next year.My girlfriends brother in law works where I work as well. He's been there 10 years. He makes close to $400,000 a year. His lawyer makes less than half what he makes. He bought property in a nice cushy suburb, raised the house that was on it and built a huge house on the property.If all you want is to make money get your real estate license, move to a big city, and work for a few years. You'll make more money than a fresh faced law school graduate well before they graduate. Or go find a job in sales with a big company.
Am I the only one who is going to law school so I can use it as a pick up line? If you're a doctor or a lawyer you have a much easier time getting a girl to sleep with you. It's a beautiful thing.
