That's fair. I will say I have a non-compete that will carry into my 1L summer. So that may help me get a govt internship, which may help carry me into long-term employment. Maybe. But yes, I should be more pessimistic (read: realistic) about it all.
lol nah you're fine... it is good to shoot for those goals; just make sure that you set a realistic financial budget. If PAYE is still around in its current form in 3 years, you might be good no matter what, but there isn't even a 100% guarantee on that either.
not to threadjack, but can they retro-actively change the terms of PAYE for people who have already started it? For example if we enter PAYE in like 2017, then they change it or get rid of it in 2020, would it affect us??
Thread jack away, I am interested in that as well.
