OP here. I am beginning to wonder what I should tell my summer employer if i do decide to drop out. I feel guilty leaving them high and dry but also don't want to eliminate this option right now.

Got to your summer job and make sure you really hate law would be my advice.

Drop out and stop updating this thread. We will know you made the right choice by the fact that you will never come here again.

It will be like the final scene in Good Will Hunting where they go to pick Matt Damon up and he doesn't come out and they know he has moved on to better things.

Go be Matt Damon.

I know Affleck pretty much told Matt Damon that he wanted him to ditch out on everything, but the fact that Damon took him so literally and straight up left everyone hanging after they bought him a car was pretty rude, IMO.

Just sayin, I wouldn't do that even if my friend told me to... because I know he'd actually like a bit of a head's up that I was moving on with my life, especially if he was wasting gas to pick me up for work the next morning.

i'm sure the wasted gas wasn't Affleck's first concern after he realized his homie had just bailed out.

garbage and not reading? really? then tell me which one is important to you? IF Finishing your degree is the most important thing in your life and someone offer you a good job opportunity?.... and if you are not happy studying and want to drop out but your parents wants you to finish your degree... and you value your parents so much... leaving something important is really hard... but still you need to have a choice....

Curious as to what "I hate the law" means.

Actually, the more I think about this, the better it sounds. Though I have to say, I'm not sure how far $73K goes in NYC.



The answer to how far $73k goes in NYC (assume Manhatten) is that it is equivalent to making $33k in Metro Detroit. That will be your standard of living.

Try that - its fun! Making 100k in metro-Detroit allows me a have a standard of living equivalent to living in Manhatten making 217k. (Yes, I know, Detroit is no Manhatten, but CoL differences have an impact on lifestyle).
