Yea, you applied and sunk some time into applying but nothing like the vast swathes of time, money and emotional energy you'll be sinking by attending. Gainfully employed individuals shouldn't leave their jobs to enroll in law school (any law school). If you get fired and can't find another FT position, that's a different story.
How serious is this post?
Deadly fucking serious. I reaffirm with another year and two thirds of hindsight.
I sent a PM so I wouldn't divulge my personal info, but to make this apply to other people, I'm curious as to how your advice pertains to those of us who are liberal arts majors and have somewhat crappy entry-level jobs with little upward mobility? I feel like going back to school is somewhat inevitable.
Particular UG degrees basically don't matter in the real world outside of engineering and accounting. This is true across a shitload of industries and positions. The business major is not at any advantage to the history major (probably a disadvantage, let's be honest) when it comes to getting any kind of business position, except insofar as she hustled more or took the time to learn basic job application/interview skills.
