Don't think of trade school as failure. You realize that most skilled, technical job workers make more than most social science/English bachelor's degrees holders? Experienced, credentialed people can make some pretty decent wages, and they're actually in demand.
Seriously. Before I started studying for the LSAT I was seriousky considering becoming a welder. If you're good you can make great money (not $160K, but still good), and always have a job, no matter where you are. Going law really just justifies my uGPA, which the majority of markets tell me isn't worth anything. Don't knock the trades.
