Doesn't sound like you really want to be a lawyer.

Yes, definitely a degree of truth to that. The more I think the less sure I am with the direction I want to take the degree after I get it & I'm starting to think that it doesn't make sense to commit at this point. I'm 27 so I've been thinking about it on and off for about 6-7 years, but I haven't really had a breakthrough in terms of direction, and I don't want to be stuck doing work I dont find ultimately rewarding just because I thought it would be a good challenge with some upside.

You'll find that the higher ranked the school, the less committed people are to the profession. For some people, law school is more about collecting fancy degrees than becoming a lawyer. And here you are turning down offers from very good schools (but not the type of school you can brag about).

Definitely a degree of truth - my cold feet from these schools is coming from increased uncertainty about what I'd want to do with the degree once I graduate.

Even coming from a T14, chances to find a well paid Entertainment Law job are slim to none unless you have very strong ties in the industry.

Entertainment Law is a small and elitist circle, do NOT go to Law School with only Entertainment Law in sight.

No need to wish, it's a reality already.

Yes- only on still at pepperdine. I am still staying on waitlist at Fordham (for part time, so
I wouldn't quit my job or more, although long term
I would).

Still wrestling with whether or not to leave an easy, well paying but boring job for
uncertainty & the chance to possibly do something I like more...
