What a horrible reason to go to law school. Leave the seat for someone who actually wants to be a lawyer.
This makes zero sense. But thanks for judging me and telling me what I should or shouldn't do.
Thanks to all others who've given great advice.
You realize law school costs a quarter million dollars right?
Well, since I make a decent wage, I won't have to borrow for living expenses. It would cost 140-150k, if I decided on a top institution without a scholarship. I can go to a lesser school for free, and I could even get a scholarship at a top institution. But I am well aware of this, which is why I have said that I feel I may be self-sabotaging (out of fear of debt).
Needless to say, I'm going to get my law degree. If I decide to saddle myself with 150k of debt, so be it. However, if I am not willing to do big law, I'd probably be best served by getting a free legal education. But for now, I have to rock the LSAT so I can make the choice next year.
