What's Your Back-Up Plan?

Postby evilgenius » Wed Aug 04, 2010 11:45 am

So you just finished 1L. You're in the bottom 10% of your non-T14 class...OR .... you've studied your ass off all year, did very well (or at least ok), but realized that law just isn't the field for you.

What's your back-up plan? Driving a taxi? Opening an alternative health clinic? becoming a chef?

Go!

oh god. that's like... 1 out of every 10 students isn't it. that's pretty good odds.

the chef option actually sounds like a nice alternative to killing myself. or becoming an illustrious author.

Take the rest of my student loans and start a law school. Or an insurance company. Two of the easiest ponzi schemes I'm aware of.

Nice try, Ty, but your answer should have referenced the lumber industry.

Team up with a fat, gay liberal to start a law gossip blog. Maybe call it BesidetheFlaw.com?
