Honestly if you want to go into law and are only a year into school, I would recommend switching degrees or taking a heavy courseload in philosophy or science. Paralegal studies, prelaw and criminal justice do not seem to help folks prepare much for the LSAT. I would also recommend doing a lot of reading and studying to figure out your personal counter to the very valid points raised by the negativity.
If you want to help people, psych is probably going to be better. Going 150k in debt at a tier 4 school, when you can't leave the local area sounds positively disasterous. I have 2 kids and a wife and am in a similar situation. I have about 3 years to go to finish my degree, but I will be moving to go to school and then find work. My wife is going to school as well, but her degree plan and career choice are a little more flexible for moving.
I will have to go here. And it's a T4. I have two children and I don't want to move them.
Honestly, law school is like any other type of education except there is more debt.
I will have to go here. And it's a T4.
Don't feed the trolls. :-p
Who says I will be defending those people? There are alot of other things that I could do you know. And I have very high morals. Thank you very much.
As people said there is a chance you might not get a job. That possibility exists in every profession and at every institution. I don't know if law school is a roll of the dice. It is a risk, but your odds are better in law school than they are in Vegas.
A lot of people who write all these negative comments about law school have entitlement issues and you will see that if you attend law school. They will bit** and moan about any situation they are put in and you can't listen to people like that.
