Should I get into law?

Postby FineGentleman » Sun Dec 02, 2012 8:41 pm

I am glad I found this website because I really need advice from guys like you.
I have always had an interest in law. I hate math. I hate science. I've failed multiple classes of math and science. I am a senior in the prestigious Stuyvesant High School in New York City. I love analyzing, writing, and reading; especially topics pertaining to law. I confirmed this after taking a criminal law class where I excelled in and enjoyed moot courts as well as being engaged in the discussions.

However, I am constantly being discouraged from getting into law because it is risky. My family is poor. I have no connections. I have heard of horror stories of law school graduates not being able to find jobs and being 200,000 in debt.

Please give me hope. What kind of college should I apply to? What should I major in? Political science?

Maybe I will try to work as a paralegal after college and then after I save up the money after a few years, I will enroll in law school?

Can you guys tell me what your life is like? I have only heard bad things about this path.

All comments are greatly appreciated.
