why do you want to be a lawyer?

Fits my personality and skill set, ability to move between public and private sector with no loss of skills, ability to work for self or a corporation, financial stability.

Because I want to cause people real pain, and you can't really do that from within the English Department.

Why not?


Um, maybe because its expensive and time consuming? But it's not a bad education to have for an education's sake, if those 2 issues are of no concern.

I realized at a young age that if you aren't rich and don't know the law, you get screwed over fairly easily. I hope to help some people not get screwed over.
