Harvard Law (All out of pocket) VS. Medical School Full Ride

Postby justathought21 » Sun Apr 01, 2012 1:18 am

Hastings does not seem wise. This is the decision that has been giving me an Ulcer!

Harvard isn't Hastings.

Would you rather be an attorney or a doctor?

I'd pick med school if you're only concerned with getting a job.

Job is not the only concern, but eventually it will be one of the primary concerns. For some unexplainable and completely subjective reason I have been drawn to the law (I like questioning things, challenging ideas...) but medicine and science has always been easy for me. I hate the thought of coming out of law school desperate for a job especially since I know I will have worked my A_s off in law.

I'd go to med school. It's free and it'll likely be easier to secure a job. Free is nice and so are jobs.

Or... if you're feelin risky.. go to lawl school, take out 150k in loans and gamble on landing a job that pays enough to get rid of the loans.

either way, best of luck to you!

You didn't mention any personal preferences of any type, I'll address the one that everyone is at least a little concerned with and assume the others aren't important. I think you'll make more money over time with a Harvard law degree.

Contrary to common TLS wisdom, I think Harvard is a pretty safe bet. As long as you have a little confidence in your ability, it shouldn't be hard to land a ritzy biglaw position with a Harvard law degree.

While I'd rather be in SF than Cambridge, I'd also rather a job.

Clearly a troll. In his other thread he seemed to seriously consider GW. Why would you consider GW when you have an "acceptance" from Harvard and a free ride to med school. So either you were trolling then or youre trolling now.

I appreciate all of the positive and objective feedback. I have applied to law school the last two years (reapplied this year with higher LSAT). As a science undergrad and Doctorate, i took the mcats and applied as a "safe" option, but i think i will take my chances with what i really "want" to do. For those few who made wrong accusations of "troll" status, use this as a learning opportunity to not make incorrect conclusions based on incomplete evidence. Most of you are awesome, and I appreciate your feedback.

Debt sucks. With that said, Harvard Law is a rare place where a lot of debt may be worth it. I still say med school for free, but yeah.
