mabey dumb people piss him off.
just because you are too simple to understand the world dosn't make the world imaginary.
if you dont like the answer, change the question.....
The one poster talking about side hustles etc. made some good points like I said I didn't understand all the details of financing in whatever health field he is going into. If it takes a month to get that CN certificate and it only costs a few hundred bucks it sounds like a great plan. He is 100% right it is always good to have a side hustle without question. If you have a J.D. with some other tangible skill whether it be language or computer science I think it makes you a lot more marketable. He is absolutely right 30,000 is an outrageous amount of money to pay for law school, but that is the way it is and I don't think it has ever been cheap. However, there are the CBA schools which offer a ridiculously cheap option or FIU, South Dakota, or North Dakota, CUNY, and maybe a few others that are nowhere near 30,000 between 6,000-12,000 a year which is a lot more reasonable. Had S.F. had an ABA school that offered the cheap tuition I would have gone there. I know JFK is here, but I want an ABA approved school, because I may at some point want to leave California. However, in regards to your complaints about costs there are CBA schools and those 4 state schools which are a lot more reasonably priced if you really want to be a lawyer. I never try to be militant maybe I came across that way and it seems you have thought outside the legal bubble but even nursing school is quite expensive or so I thought and I don't believe it is that much safer of a profession than the legal field. I imagine there are a lot of employed nurses and I imagine there are nurses looking for work just like any other profession. People get the ax in healthcare industries etc I imagine, but again I have no idea about how hospitals run etc. All I was saying if you want to be a lawyer then you should go to law school, but if money is your main concern a J.D. is not the best bet and it sounds like you are more concerned with money than the profession you enter into which is completely fine. In my opinion I would rather do something I like and struggle financially than do something I dislike or am indifferent about and have money, but that is just me and money is certainly is nice to have. Your job is going to last a lifetime and nursing, J.D., M.B.A, whatever you choose to do you will be working in that field for a LONG time your entire working life which will probably be 30 to 40 years so I personally think it is best to choose a path you will enjoy the most. Law school is ridiculously expensive and it really shouldn't charge as much as they do, but I want to be a lawyer so I have to deal with the outrageous price tag.
I never said it was shallow to chase money. I don't have any myself and the debt I have accumulated even with a scholarship is scary. I think law school is a massive risk and there are about 327 better ways to make money. I just really enjoy the law and want to be lawyer and worked some crapp** jobs after college, but then I started working in law firms and I liked it a lot, more than any other job I have ever had and I have probably had 8 or 9 jobs in different fields in undergrad and for a year or so after college, but working in law firms I really liked so that is why I am in law school. I really think if you go to law school, because you don't know what else to do or are simply going, because you like Law & Order you are probably not going to be happy. I really think anybody considering law school should work as a paralegal for a year or two and if possible get a cheap paralegal certificate. This way you will know if it is something you even want to do and having some legal experience before going to law school is huge in my opinion, because in each interview I have gotten they were impressed that I had experience doing actual legal work. This is only based on my limited experience, but I have not gotten a job I interviewed for the summer and I think it has a lot to do with having legal experience. You never know why someone chooses to hire you over somebody else, but that is what I think the reason is.
