I appreciate our return to the "why should [you] NOT go to law school" question but I'm wondering if anyone else has a good idea as to why they DO want to go to law school.
I mean, shoot, everyone's pretty good at shooting each other down. What makes your situation any different?
^^I don't mean to come off DBaggy. Obviously no one need justify why they're going to law school to anyone, especially to a bunch of strangers on the internet. And to be fair, I haven't even answered my own question (though I'm sure that some of the reasons I'd like to go would be easily shot down by TLS).
It seems like the one answer that DOESN'T get attacked here is when a person says they know what a lawyer does (yes, the crappy parts too) and they'd like to do that too. I'd argue that not as many people who say this actually know what they're signing up for but it still seems to be the best answer. Anything else?
One a side note, I do wonder if some of these answers that people give aren't just people trolling but rather people just being honest--despite what TLS says.
Did you dislike my answer?
"I'm becoming a lawyer because it provides a certain lifestyle I would like for my family and is a profession that I find interesting. That's pretty much it. It is a job to me -- a job to support my family that, while not my passion, is something I could see myself wanting to do 10, 20 yrs down the road...and find sufficiently fulfilling. But by no means do I crave the law lol."
