Should I go to pre-law
« on: October 10, 2009, 06:10:52 PM »
I realize that a lawyer is in it for the money, and i believe I have the skills to be a good lawyer. However, I've heard horror stories. My questions are, are there jobs as a lawyer, and should I go through the whole process-is it worth it? Also, do you need to be a lib. arts major to get into law school- how many english courses do you need to take in college?If anyone has any imput, please reply.

It doesn't matter what you major in. There are no minimum English courses or anything like that.

The horror stories tend to be from people who borrowed a lot of money to go to lower ranked schools. The job market is tough right now, just as it is in most other professions.

Earn a degree within your field of Interest First.  We designed the process to ensure that you would not come out with a worthless degree.  If you desire law school, your GPA will be leveraged by LSDAS with your test score LSAT to benchmark the adjusted GPA.

As for finances.  Plan on your worse case scenario.  You are heading back home to start you legal profession and that you will not be offered a job.  If you can stomach that thought, your home free and keep in mind that you have a identifiable potential in law school in respects to GPA. Articles:  'Fixing law school admissions' Wesleyan Argus University paper Google and then click on Web. A Good Summary of the situation based on GPA, employment and the objectives of the old council.

Law School is a business and they offer no money back guarantees should you fail financially after graduation !!   Never attend a law school without getting your BA first !! It's all about employment
