  1. I am graduating undergrad in December of this year, and I plan to apply for law school for fall of 22'! (hopefully SMU if I crush LSAT). I am pretty confident I would be a great attorney. I keep doing my research, and the same thing keeps popping up and that is the lawyer market is over-saturated currently. SMU reviews boast that it is a great resource for having a career in DFW, where I plan to live and work after college. I am just worried that I might make a huge financial decision and then not have job opportunities 🙁

  2. Hi! I’m a sophomore in high school planning on being a lawyer. I was wondering how would I schedule taking the LSAT? And how long should I study for? Also if I don’t get into a top law school is it true that I wouldn’t be able to be a lawyer?

  3. Good video! I agree people should go in to law school with eyes wide open, and not based on TV or movie glamorizing our profession. I did a similar video to try to shed some light on the profession. Well done.

  4. I want to study law because it comes off as studious and the law in general fascinates me.

    I am a voracious reader. I love history, politics, philosophy, and the classics. I'm actually a double major in philosophy and classics with a minor in political science.

    I do not want to argue cases and would like to avoid court at all costs lol. I would much prefer to be at my desk reading texts or writing. Hopefully that's possible?

    How is the law interesting: I love reading about the history of cases and how they affected society. I am fascinated by the way attorney's (or the Court) have won cases through loopholes or technicalities. Whether ethical or not is another story, but fascinating nonetheless.

    I'll be 31-32 when I graduate with my BA and 35 with my JD. It sucks, but I'm not getting any younger.

    My undergraduate is free thanks to the GI Bill. So the only debt I'm looking at is from law school.

  5. I’m from Brasil and I wanna do the law course at Brasil, after that i was thinking in to do LLM, what do you thing about the job market for foreign people that only did the LLM ?

  6. Hello, I am a foreigner immigrating to the USA within the next year. I am considering going to UT in Austin, but before that, I am thinking about doing some paralegal job. If you have information on the performance of non-native lawyers in the USA(any statistic on that) or is there a demand on the job market for them? Thank you 🙂

  7. Hi Angela ,
    I am from India 1st year law student integrated 5 year programme. So I was deciding to apply for JD programme in Ivy League but don’t know the procedure to do so .
    Could it be possible for you to give some sort of advice for the same .
    I know about Lsat but what else is needed .

  8. Right now I’m a bachelor of science student with a biology major and a chemistry minor. I do very well in my program but have realized that I don’t wanna go into health care. I’ve also looked at the prospects of teaching and then getting my masters in education and my doctorate in education, both of which I can get while working full time as a teacher, which is very enticing; however, I’ve also looked at law school and it seems like something I’d also love to do too. I’m young, 21, and I’ll be done my bachelor of science in another year and a half so I have a little bit of time to decide, but another thing that worries me is the work load for being a lawyer, and the location I live in (I live in a smaller city so I’m not sure if lawyer make that much here). I really like the fact that with teaching it’s great hours and you have lots of vacation time so I can explore the world while I’m young and before I have kids, plus I love working with kids and creating my own curriculum (I’d wanna teach high school senior sciences and then eventually go into administration). I feel like when I’m older though, I’d enjoy being a lawyer more, but I probably wouldn’t wanna go back to school for it, especially if I spend all that money and time on a masters and EdD. I’m just a very undecided person and I wish I could look into the future to see what I’d enjoy more 🙁

  9. My biggest concern is that with the pandemic and many law schools being online, the learning environment that many of us have traditionally known of being able to share space with others will be regulated to a lesser role in the aspect of teaching. I am currently in college and the fatigue that comes with trying to keep up with the constant stress of changes while also maintaining motivation for persisting through the semester is challenging in a way that is unique to this moment in history. The domino effect it will have in lawyer culture to be so inundated with technology and the need to be productive for every second of the day could be the reality we are heading towards.
