Um... you aren't helping. Seriously though... you keep putting up these things that make me question my decision! Stop it!
Besides... if you read ATL you can totes see how this isn't just Albuquerque. Their craigslist ads are hilarious.
Let's just hope the economy improves.
I don't mean to upset anyone. Knowing what is out there--the landscape--is part of anyone's homework, and economics plays a part (whether consciously or unconsciously) in all our choices, whether it is buying a car, buying a house, shopping for groceries, or choosing a grad school program. Firemed, you sound like from your other posts, that you have done your homework and have made the decision that works for you. Some people plow blindly into endeavors with no idea of the situation or consequences, and then wonder why something is not working or did not turn out.
I don't have that impression of you. You are a firefighter, and firefighters have methodologies, procedures, that they must follow if everyone is going to stay safe and the fire is put out. My guess is that you have carried that discipline into your decision to go to law school. So quit second-guessing yourself at this point. (It is kind of like writing a paper--at some point you have to stop the research, and write and finish the paper. Otherwise, people would research forever.) BTW, enlighten me--what is ATL? (besides the airport code for Atlanta)
