I guess "best local Boston job" is about as vague as I can get
Ideally I'd like to be working in the field of tax/finance law or IP law (a long shot, given my non-technical background), with a salary that's higher than what my BA degree could get me.
(And agreed that the LR point is moot.)
Despite my lifetime goals, I definitely disagree that I'd be wasting 3 years of my life by going to LS now. While it's something I decided on only recently in the grand scheme of things - I happened upon an intro law class in undergrad and my professor mentioned that I should consider going to law - I thoroughly enjoy the subject and am quite enthusiastic about the intellectual challenge of law school. Law is not the be-all-end-all career for me, but I'm sure it's what I want to be involved with now and into the near future.
No worries, JollyGreenGiant, I don't think you're a dick at all. I appreciate you trying to get me to really think about all aspects of the decision.
Thank you all for replying - just typing out and organizing my thoughts has helped me and what was what I was looking for when I created this thread. Feel free to continue posting, although no guarantees that I'll be checking back obsessively to reply.
