If I have learned one thing from my prioritizing my ideas about where my career could go, it's that I don't really want to go to law school.
I laid out my ideas and filled in some details, and moved them around. Here's the category listings as they stand:
- Educational Administration
- Business School
- Law School
Sales was a suggestion from the career coach, because she thinks it would match my competitive and outgoing nature. But the more I've looked at it, I can't really get my heart into it. That puts it at the bottom of the list.
What I noticed about this list, as it emerged, was that the top two items, Teaching and Writing, are about me creating something on my own, customized, and autonomously. This fits with a lot of things, like the results I got on my Strong's Inclination Index test in grad school.
Business school is a very intriguing option; it's something unlike things I've studied before, but it would show me some valuable skills. It would cost money, and mean more loans, scholarship applications and so forth, but it still holds a lot of appeal for me. I'd love if any b-school students or grads would leave me some comments about why they went to b-school and what the best part about it was.
Law school has fallen to the very bottom (except for Sales) and I think I know now, it's a pipe dream. I like the idea of learning law because I loved the law class I took in grad school. But I don't have aspirations to become a lawyer, or practice law really. I might as well take it off the list.
