I first became interested in law because, I thought it was a job I could be good at, and I thought it would be an effective way to make some sort of impact in whatever area i practice. I interned at a civil law firm during summers of college and began to learn about what it actually means to be a lawyer. I enjoy the interaction with clients, and even tasks that others find more tedious such as research or reading through contracts.
Also, another update on my situation. I appealed my financials at UChicago, which I wasn't strongly considering with my information from Northwestern. They offered me 75,000 to attend in the fall. This complicates my situation in a good way. I may now go back to Northwestern and see if they will increase my offer, and look for Berkeley to match it. NYU said no to additional funding even with the Northwestern info so I think they are out of the running.
Just when I thought I knew what I was doing, I feel like I am back to square one. Any thoughts on my newly updated situation?
