People always complain about how the JD ruined their lives, so one must ask, what WOULD they prefer to have done? How would it have been better by comparison and why?

I guess I'm backwards - cop/firefighter/EMT looking at going to law school.  Oh, well.  ::)

How's that backwords? You feel that you would be moving up. Nothing wrong with that. Many just angst over having done it without fully explaining what else they would have done with their lives.

I would have stayed in my previous career and saved up $100,000 and then gone to law school at 35 or so.

wouldn't the delay create more harm than good since cost of tuition goes up every year? How would that be of benefit?
