full pleat ahead! [Jan. 26th, 2011|09:52 am]
smart went crazy
[Feel me |bouncybouncy]

So having missed the OCS deadline once again, and just again realizing that my other option is law schoool. I've got a sort of plan!

Once I graduate I will move back to Austin where I will find a Travis county job, something like court clerk or similar. I will take an LSAT prep course during this time and prepare to take the LSAT. As soon as the dates are posted I will start getting the packet ready.

So by next November I will have the LSAT done, applied for OCS(assuming they don't cancel apps again this fall) and be ready to start applying to law schools. This way, come spring 2012, I will be going in a direction, either OCS or Law school.

From Law school I can still go direct officer commission route and start out even higher, or I can weasel my way into political work.

Finally having some semblance of a plan is nice. So many of my friends are still working in the service industry after graduating, with no plans of doing anything differently. I don't want to fall in to that trap. It's taken me an extra year to graduate (not counting time off) and I feel good knowing that it's not too late.

I've still got some negative influences in my life, but my Uncle has recently took a great interest in me and is encouraging me to be the best I can.

I'm still haunted by that girl who visits my dreams several times a week, I don't think I can do anything about that either way. That's just something I'm going to have to have to live with.

Have you read all the recent articles and studies that say the market is glutted with new lawyers, and how law school tuition costs are way too high for not enough return? I'm worried you're going back to school just because life sucks right now or you can't find a job with what you have. Do you worry about debt?

Also quit being obsessed with me, I have a boyfriend. You'll just have to move on!

I don't plan on litigating. I'd either use the law school thing to go into the Direct Commission Program for the Coast Guard, into politics on the federal level, or even into the non-profit sector.

I see. Still a ton of debt.
