Finish Paralegal Studies???
« on: January 02, 2008, 08:08:35 PM »
A bit off the law school topic, but I need help nonetheless.

I'm working at a large firm and doing a paralegal certificate at an ABA accredited law school.  I only started this program because I waited too long to take the LSAT for entry into law school for fall of '07, but now I'm admitted at a couple of schools for THIS fall. 

Knowing I will be in law school this fall do I stick out paralegal classes till July?
It is really a pain in the ass and I'd be spending about another $4,000 for the last two quarters which is money that could be used towards law school.  It would also be nice to have my Tues/Thurs nights and Saturday mornings back till the fall.

Any comments???

I can not think of any reason why you would keep doing the program.  Waste of money, time, and happiness.

Thanks for your replies...I was already leaning that way and I withdrew from classes this morning!  A big relief to not have to continue with that...topic closed as far as I'm concerned (not that I can delete it or anything)

Good choice. Paralegal garbage is worthless once you have a JD. Only reason to stay would have been if you thought that you would probably decide that law school "wasn't for you".

Could be handy when you get disbarred! No seriously, right decision, this would be pointless to you.
