I've been a secondary history and government teacher and coach (just about every sport but now only football but really want to go to law school. I have two graduate degrees in educational administration and have decided law school is a much better alternative than going to get a Ph. D. I will have to start part time because I have a family but I worked the entire time I got both of my graduate degrees- I know the course work doesnt compare to law school. I have been in education for 16 years and I am looking at law as something I can do for the rest of my life. I am a crazy, I would love to hear your comments or suggestions. Thank you.
Thanks again to those who posted back. I do appreciate it. I started out as Pre-law major in my undergrad but ended up getting a history degree and started teaching and coaching and kept looking at law school but was always consumed with what I was doing at the time. I am still investigating it and considering everything very carefully. I taught and coached a young man who worked extremely hard in the classroom and athletics that graduated from Stanford and UMichigan law school and he told me the reality for someone my age and not going to a top tier law school was massive debt and once you pass the bar if you could find a job you would only start at 50K.
I think I knew that all a long though talking to him just confirmed it. I will continue to investigate and in the mean time will try to some interning in some firms. Thank you again for taking time to read my post I am certainly grateful for your honest candor.
