Probably not, OP. If you like your job and don't particularly want to be a lawyer then there is no reason at all to go to law school. Actually, running the numbers, it isn't a financially bad option for many people. The thing is that most people have other opportunities that are just as good or better when you factor in the debt and uncertainty of law school. If you get into a T14 school it will be at full cost. If there isn't anything else to it than the money, don't do law school. That isn't a knock on being money focused but it just takes more than that to make it worth it.

Thanks for the advice guys.

I'm thinking I'd be better suited to get a MBA with a concentration in finance. I could still work and the Wake Forest business school is a block away, and Wells would be paying for it.
