Another fine rhetorician and politician seeking enemies to grind to dust.

I'm half-tempted to say flame, but I'm pretty sure OP is real (which is simultaneously frightening and hilarious).

In short: don't go to law school-not for the reasons you've stated and not when you're giving up a stable, lucrative career in a place with universal healthcare and a strong social safety net. But if you do go somewhere like Kansas or Gonzaga, don't say we didn't warn you.

I don't have any particular reverence for the law itself, but I do feel that my ideal profession would be one where one could go about seeking enemies to fight and destroy. I realize that isn't what the mainstream practice of law entails, but it's certainly something that I can entail under some circumstances.


then you should definitely go to one of those TTTs. finding a job will be one hellofa legendary brawl, bro.

You could always retake and go to a real law school.

What? No. If you really want to be involved in international human rights, you should at least go to a good law school. Even then your odds are far from guaranteed.

Unless becoming a lawyer is your dream, and has been your dream for a long time, you would be crazy to drop/ alter what you have for law school. In addition, you do not have to go to law school to get into politics. The two don't always go hand in hand.
