Does anyone regret going to law school?
I think I made a bad choice. I was one of those "I didn't become a doctor like my mom wanted so I guess I'll go to law school" types. Young and naive and too status conscious. I made it into a top law school, took the CA bar once, failed and never tried again cuz I wasn't inspired. I'm sooo not a good fit for law. I like careers with flexibility, movement, team work, creativity, playfulness. I was playful and goofy in law school and people thought I was a weirdo. I have a really hard time sitting for hours reading and writing. I fit in better with actors, but of course I can't make a decent living in acting (I've done student films and community theater). So I'm poor with a law degree now.

Being a lawyer is badass.
