There are lots of great reasons to go to law school, but also a lot of misconceptions. For example, many people think they need a law degree for certain professions, like politics, which is not the necessarily the case. If you do not want to be a lawyer and practice law, then you need to do some serious research about whether or not it is worth it for you to take on the financial, intellectual, and emotional burden of going to law school. But if you are looking for a career that will allow you to do research and continuously learn new things, if you enjoy writing, and you want to help people and solve problems, then law school just might be a great choice for you. But let’s be honest: law school is financially, intellectually, and emotionally challenging. And guess what: so is the application process.
Are you still up for this? Thousands of people successfully apply to law school every year, so if you put your mind to it, so can you.
