* * *I am wondering if it would be worthwhile for me to take time off after my first year is finished to get a certificate in psychology so that I can then get a masters in forensic psychology - all before possibly returning to law school? I realize this may sound ridiculous and I agree, but I still want to ask. I've checked into certificate programs and they take roughly 16-18 months. Would it be better for me to just continue on the track I'm on, get my law degree, and then see if I still want to go the psychology path (I mean, who is to say I can't just take some psychology courses after law school, right?). I just want some opinions and advice. I honestly have no one with any real knowledge of these kind of things that I can talk to about this. Maybe I'm just feeling this way because it's my first year and many of us are wondering "did I make the right decision?" Who knows. Just want some advice. Thanks.
Wow, great response. First, yes I have looked into the "Art of the Law School Transfer" - I'm still kind of in the air, though, of whether I really want to transfer as would be happy staying in the school I am in. But I will certainly look into it further as the end of the year approaches.* * *
