I'm actually not working in the sports store anymore. It just happened to be a fun and relaxing thing to do for awhile while I figured out my next steps after leaving law school. I'm definitely not against the idea of more grad school - in fact I'm planning on it. Right now I'm actually in the middle of a pre-med post-bacc program. By the time I'd graduated college, I'd developed a really strong interest in neuroscience from some of my psych courses and I've always been really interested in health and medicine as well. Since I hadn't taken any basic science in college, the post-bacc is a great place for me to start. I've been doing some shadowing and clinical volunteering, which is making me lean toward medicine, although I'm also working in a neuroscience lab right now as well to explore the research side of things a little as well. As to the second set of questions:1) I dropped out after 1 semester. 2) It's now over a full year since I dropped out and I'm in the midst of a pre-med post-bacc program, so I'm pretty focused on a new path now. 3) Again, the stuff I mentioned above explains what I'm pursuing now. Even when I was about to start law school, I kept telling myself I could go into health law or neurolaw or even malpractice law, but really that was because deep down I wanted to learn about neuroscience and medicine and not really law at all! 4) Earning potential did play some factor, although not as large a factor as I think it plays for many people. I didn't go into it with the idea that I wanted to work in biglaw, so future salary was not my main motivator. 5) Again, answered above. I guess I'd say it was "the best decision of my life" because now I'm pursuing things I actually love, rather than something I thought was practical and might enjoy only a little bit.
