To 2L and 3L Law students

How is your law school experience so far? If you had a chance to go back and change career options would you stick with law or go for something else?

Better to ask in December, after all the OCI results come in

If I knew everything about myself that I know now, I would've gone for a masters in ed/masters in social work.

CS for me, though accounting and EE both would have been better choices than my CIS degree...

I'd stick with law. Poli sci major. I never liked math. I'd much rather spend my day reading cases. I think that there is enough intellectual challenge in law where I will keep my mind active to an old age. (Alzheimers runs in my family so this is important to me). Also, I enjoy my first summer at a law firm. Its hard work, but I've had jobs where I've worked 15 less hours per week, and this honestly feels like the days go by much faster than those.

For me its been a good decision. For everyone I can't say.
