I think CC's last paragraph was the most useful advice he's offered. Thank you. Feel free to leave the stage at any time. The lights are off sir.
I think we've established how you have zero loan debt; multiple internships at $20/hour. As the other poster stated, this makes you the exception not the rule my friend. And judging by your suggestion I move in with parents to pay down my loan debt, I'm going to take a shot in the dark that this is what you've done. Which is fine, but I remind you that moving in with parents is not an option for a lot of people, including myself. I've worked full-time out of necessity...
Hahaha....pretty sensitive there ay CC? I don't doubt you worked hard, but that hardly puts you in exclusive company; anyone who works full-time and earns a degree works hard. I'm not sure how old you are, but if you haven't realized it yet there's a certain amount of luck, i.e. timing, randomness of opportunity, etc. that's involved with every successful person's climb. If the dismissive nature of rich kids incense you, your "I did it all myself" attitude is hardly any...
Yes, college tuition is out of control. My 45k is actually on the low end compared to many of my peers. I've worked full time the entirety of my college career also, but earned nothing close to $20/hr. For an internship too? Lucky bastard. Lol. I have no doubts I'll be able to eventually pay my loans back, even if I continued the line of work I'm in now. The question was wether adding more debt is wise, and if I do, which field of study in graduate school would reap the...
With the current collaspe of the legal field and overall inadequate job market for new attorneys, I'm considering taking a different path than law school if I continue my education.     What do those here at SF believe is the best field of study to undertake nowadays when going to graduate school?   What would offer the best chance for an above average salary and long-term advancement; even if one had to begin at the bottom of the career ladder?    I'm 28...
  New to this. Just bought this suit the other day. I think it fits ok.
Thanks for all the repsonses. They were very helpful.
I'm considering grad school, yes. I'm not sure which direction to go now that law school is looking like an impossibility. I had planned on focusing on criminal law in law school; practicing as a cda after school. However, I did also want to get into the non-profit sector. Having a non- profit which offers community-based services, i.e., youth literacy, job placement, overall health, career transition training etc., has been a long-term goal of mine for some time. I'm not...

Thanks all for the advice. So it seems legal education is a no-go no matter the circumstances. I considered grinding out a few prep LSAT courses (which cost!!) trying to raise my score, but the consensus appears that that would be a waste of time. Paralegal work is certainly an option, but a lot of those jobs are being absorbed by out of work attorneys. Any other suggestions on possible work options for someone with my degree or suggestions on what graduate school I...
