So I just found out I am getting laid off from my job this week, and I have been applying for some part-time jobs so I can make some cash before law school starts. My plan is to just save enough to pay my bills for the year so that I don't have to work. Where ever I decide to go, I have to do pretty well to keep my scholarship money and I don't want to take on a job and law school at the same time.
Tonight, however, my father got in a fight with me because I don't plan on working as a 1L. He basically said I'm worthless if I don't have a job. I had a job in college, but it was real flexible and on-campus and didn't affect me too much. My Dad though thinks I should be working at nights, after class. The thought of doing that seems crazy to me.
Am I right in thinking that trying to work on top of first year work is just too much? Is my Dad just an idiot?
