When my friends and I were still in undergrad, the concept of spending a decade or more in graduate school was unsettling.
Some people seek PhDs, and it takes them about this long to acquire their final diploma.
As a result, some of us began to seriously reconsider attending law school and becoming attorneys. It’s a well-known path for students of philosophy or economics, so it felt like a perfect match. Fortunately, I took a couple pre-law classes in college and quickly recognized that it wasn’t the ideal career for me. My best buddy and roommate, on the other hand, had the polar opposite experience. He enrolled in the pre-law course since he couldn’t get into any other classes for that period, and it ended up providing him with a career path. It wasn’t simple, though, because he had to first pass the LSAT with a high score and then complete more than two years of college at a law school. After receiving your diploma, you must pass the Bar exam in each state where you desire to practice law. My acquaintance was assigned to a trial duty for the state prosecutor’s office right away. Despite his substantial pay as a state attorney, he was pressured and restless. He didn’t really enjoy having to defend acceptable criminals, especially when they were monsters who committed murder and other heinous crimes. When a law school colleague told him about the possibilities of being an estate law and family attorney, my acquaintance jumped at the first available position at a law company. My friend is more content now that he is an estate law and family law attorney. He occasionally has to deal with shady clients, but it’s nowhere near as bad as defending killers in criminal court.
