I think that's the honorable thing to do.
It's honorable to keep supporting people who blatantly refuse to help themselves, to the point of compromising your own life?
You summed up my thoughts better than I could
Answering dresden doll. I'll be the first to admit that I do not fit in with the cut-throat attitude of law school. If it's biglaw or pushing my mother out a window, I guess I'm just going to have to learn to love traffic court. Maybe that means I'm too emotional and shouldn't go to law school. I guess I'm the outlier standing separate from LS bad asses.
OP. You're free to do as you like. Maybe your family will survive. I sincerely pray they do no matter what you decide. You have the right to do what you think you should, but I just thought that I could play the other side on your shoulder and affirm that the reasons you have for being uneasy about going to law school are legitimate. Why? Because they're your parents. It's your family. Unlike business partners, law schools and law firms, you only get one family. Business partners will betray you, law schools will extort you, law firms will fire you. Your family won't. That's a special bond and that special bond comes with special obligations. Just my humble opinion.
