You have your entire life to work. College is a unique opportunity to really learn about yourself in a setting that supports that kind of self-exploration. I wish I could go back to college. You meet so many great people in college and I have found the working world doesn't offer the same bonds. I know law school won't be the same as college, but I still hope it will be somehow.
Don't junior college kids spend only 2 years at a degree-granting school? So whats the big deal? I'm not that unique. The time I've spent here has done very little for me. I think it was mainly because I challenged myself at a young age. Everything in college just seems repetitive. I sure as hell don't want to spend 25K a year learning Chinese politics...etc. I can just google it all. I am paying for the degree. If I want an education, I can just go to the local library and pick up a book on Chinese politics. The professors here can barely speak clearly. So I want to save 2 years of my life and 50 grand. And the social life here is garbage anyhow. I've been to frats, been to football games..etc. Nothing I will miss.
Now I am genuinely interested in the law, especially criminal law. I will obviously spend the full 3 years here. I just can't see myself entering law school after 23 and getting out of law school after 25-26 years old. Just seems way too old.
