I mean, come on, you've had TWO mortgages. I think you have just a LITTLE bit more relevant life experience here in the class on finance. You should share it! You're doing us a favor.
She has a bank account too!
Truth be told, the problem with most nontrads is they failed in their prior career. Cut the crap and admit you wouldn't be going to law school if you had done well in your last attempted profession. Law school is your last chance at a steady income, or so you think.
A nontrad is like the old vagabond free agent in football. Young students are like the #1 draft pick.
Okay, I may be responding to a troll who just likes to pick fights, but here we go anyway.
I am a nontrad student who works in a very successful family-owned business. I actually did not go to college right out of h/s because I could not afford it amd instead I worked. I am giving up GREAT pay and benefits to pursue a law degree. I am also giving up the right to take over said family business when parents retire. It is my belief (as idealistic as it sounds) that each person has a purpose or calling in life. I fell in love with the legal system, sitting on the knee of a family friend who was a circuit court judge, at the age of nine. But sometimes life gets in the way. I married young, had a child, and put aside and ignored my dream. So for me, I did not fail at what I was doing, give that up and go to law school.
A person would have to be an idiot to have failed at one business and then take on the study of law. Most law students have type A personalities, which push them to be highly competitive and highly successful professionals.
Oh, and to sc3, leave Joey alone!!!!
Not his fault he was stuck with the Lions.
