Dear Nealric ~
I appreciate your response and so quick. Thank you for offering insights into other areas for me to consider. Actually, I don't particularly enjoy the job I am in now and law school or not would most likely make a change back to non-profit work. That said, I am interested in various ways in which a law degree would assist in the area of non-profit work as I have encountered a number of attorneys who are no longer practicing per se but are using the degree in other settings (legislative advocacy, non-profit work, etc.).
Not sure all of that is worth $1,000+ loan payments per month, so I need to be smart and I appreciate your views on the vow of poverty. I think at the end of the day, I will make the degree the best I can at no matter what school and will find the level of success I am looking for.
I appreciate again, your insights and any more you may have on attorneys who you know who may be utilizing their JD in a multitude of ways.
